Should Hell in a Cell determine the real winner of the spelling bee?
The runaway winner for the poll ESPN's Trey Wingo put up on Twitter was a cage match, but we all know Hell in a Cell is way better. What do you think?
What is this participation-trophy nonsense?! You can't call yourself a champion unless you prove you're better than the competition. If these kids really want to call themselves winners, there is no better way to decide than Hell in a Cell.
One of the WWE's premier matches, Hell in a Cell tests determination and toughness in a way words do not. Imagine Sohum Sukhatankar putting Christopher Serrao through the top of the cell with a powerbomb, or Erin Howard tossing Rohan Raja off the cage Mankind-style to a table below.
Eight co-champions is an insult: There can only be one, and Hell in a Cell is the way to find out who is worthy.
Hell in a Cell is one way to determine a winner of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Or, you know, they can all be winners like they are right now because the real opposition they faced are words and not other kids.
There's nothing wrong with eight co-champions. They spelled so well, and the competition ran out of difficult words to use. No child should be dinged because they bested the people who run the bee.
These kids aren't just participation trophy winners—they're champions.
