The bell rings, and both men seem unfazed by strikes. This brings them to the outside right off the bat – Edge grabs a chair and Finn grabs a kendo stick. The Demon swipes away at Edge with the sharp wood, then throws him out of the ring and grinds his face on the cell. He continues using the cell to his advantage, Irish whipping Edge into the cell with force. Back inside the ring, Edge starts fighting back with some mounted punches. Balor tries to collect himself on the apron, but he’s tackled off, sending him straight into the cell wall.
Edge climbs under the ring and pulls out multiple kendo sticks. He wacks Balor multiple times and tosses him face-first back into the cell. Edge has a sick idea with the kendo sticks; he uses them to barricade Finn in the corner of the cell and then climbs to the apron to deliver a dropkick. He’s still trapped in the corner, but as his demon persona, Finn is almost impervious to basic moves. This inspires Edge to go grab a table from under the ring as the crowd erupts with glee.
Balor nearly freed himself by destroying one of the sticks, and as Edge comes over to address him, he rains down punches and tosses Edge shoulder-first into the steel steps. Finn with some chops and tosses Edge back inside the ring. Edge comes back with an impaler DDT, a la Gangrel from The Brood. Edge tries to hit the spear, but he’s instead caught in the sling blade. Edge is tossed from the ring to the cell, crumbling to the floor upon colliding with the steel. Finn hits a running dropkick that propels Edge straight into a table propped against the cell wall.
Finn tosses multiple chairs at Edge’s face, but he is able to deflect the third one and come back with a kick. In a tribute to Christian, Edge hits the killswitch/unprettier. He then sets himself up in the corner and prepares for the spear, but no, Finn kicks him and pulls him into an inside cradle for a two count. Edge-O-Matic comes after that, but Finn kicks out at 1. Oh boy, Edge just pulled out a ladder!
He immediately tosses the ladder right into The Demon’s face, which collides with his face and brings the first bloodshed to the bout. Medical staff comes in and starts tending to Balor. While the doctors focus on Balor, Edge pulls out another ladder and several more kendo sticks. One of the ladders is then set up in the corner of the ring while The Demon suddenly rises back up to his feet. Edge goes for a powerbomb, but he’s met with a standing double stomp. Finn attempts the coup de grace, but it’s thwarted.
Both men are spent at this point. The Demon hits a sling blade, a shotgun dropkick, and the coup de grace. But this is Hell in a Cell – it’s not going to be that simple! His next move is to go to the top rope to try a super coup de grace, but Edge catches him with a kendo stick to the head. Edge meets him at the top and pulls Finn into an impaler DDT for a 2 count. Edge now sets a table up inside the ring. As he turns around, The Demon whacks him over and over with a kendo stick. Finn lays him on the table and climbs up the cell to go for a super coup de grace! But no, Edge rolled out of the way, and Finn stomps right through the wood. That was wild!
Edge hits the spear out of nowhere! No, The Demon hasn’t been laid to rest quite yet. Edge gets the two count and then starts looking around desperately for the next move. He connects with a steel chair to Finn’s back over and over, then sets him up for the one-man conchairto. Edge connects and rolls Finn’s lifeless body over for the 1-2-3!
