Are you familiar with the literary device known as Chekhov's Gun?

"If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it's not going to be fired, it shouldn't be hanging there." -- Anton Chekhov

When you hang a rifle on the wall, or a meddling and fame hungry ref with a fabulous booty in a Hell in a Cell, you expect it to go off. He's just been around for too long to have nothing happen in his story.

(This assumes the WWE's Creative is working under the basic principals of good writing. That's a big assumption.)
