Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel was absent from the Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View with an injury many wrestling sites were calling a freak hip blowout.

Axel took to his Twitter earlier today to dispel those rumours:

Axel was due to defend his Intercontinental Championship against Big E Langston at the PPV but instead Big E was shifted to Dean Ambrose and the United States Championship.

It remains to be seen just how long Axel will be out of action for.

John Cena made a triumphant return to WWE last night at Hell in a Cell defeating Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship and Randy Orton won the vacant WWE Championship defeating Daniel Bryan.

Cena had been out nursing a torn triceps injury for two and a half months but returned well ahead of schedule to win the World Title in what was an extremely good match with Mexican Alberto Del Rio.

Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan went at it for the third PPV in a row (Night of Champions and Battleground preceded Hell in a Cell) and Daniel Bryan got screwed once again when special referee Shawn Michaels superkicked Bryan and counted the pinfall for Orton.

Expect fallout and celebrations aplenty on RAW if this tweet from Stephanie McMahon is anything to go by:
