red hell cell

Eagle-eyed viewers of professional sports entertainment have likely noticed that WWE’s “Hell in a Cell” cage is now red, instead of its traditional metallic hue, but have you ever wondered why? 

Because they painted it red.

And there you have it!

Paint. 

You probably should have figured that out on your own, Einstein.
