On October 3rd, World Wrestling Entertainment presents the WWE Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View. This will be the second annual “Hell in a Cell” event, dating back to 2009, the year they replaced the No Mercy PPV. The concept of this PPV is that the world championship matches will be contested inside the 20-foot Hell in a Cell, one of the most demonic structures in WWE history, and is a match that changes the lives of wrestlers forever. Currently, there has only been two matches announced for the card, John Cena versus Wade Barrett and the new WWE champion Randy Orton versus Sheamus for the WWE Championship and will be contested inside the Hell in a Cell. These are my predictions on what other matches will be on the Hell in a Cell card and who will come out victorious.
Michelle McCool (c) vs. Melina for the Unified Women’s Championship: The first match of the night is likely to be a women’s match with Michelle McCool defending her Unified Women’s Championship against Melina. McCool already beat Melina at Night of Champions in a lumberjack match, unifying the Women’s and Diva’s championships. Melina will want to take the title she lost back, and this rematch will probably happen either at the Hell in a Cell PPV, or very soon. Prediction: Michelle McCool defends her title with the Faithbreaker for the pinfall victory.
Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio: The feud between Christian and Alberto Del Rio has been brewing for the past month, with Christian challenging Del Rio every week on Friday Night SmackDown, but Del Rio backing down in the last second, saying there will be a better place and a better time. Christian challenged Del Rio to a match at Night of Champions, with Alberto declining. Chances are that Christian will challenge Del Rio again to a match, and it is likely to be at the Hell in a Cell PPV, and we will see if Del Rio accepts this time around. These two wrestlers could put on one of the best matches of the year, if it is to happen. Prediction: Alberto Del Rio wins the matchup, keeping his undefeated streak alive, making Christian tap out due to the flying armbar.
Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre (c) vs. The Hart Dynasty for the WWE Tag Team Championship: The new team of Cody Rhodes and Drew McIntyre are making headlines after winning the WWE Tag Team Champions at Night of Champions, being the last team standing in the five team tag team gauntlet match. Rhodes and McIntyre are two of the more successful heels on the SmackDown brand, becoming a team less than two weeks before picking up the belts. It will be interesting if The Hart Dynasty asks for their rematch clause at the Hell in a Cell PPV and if this match is made. Prediction: Rhodes and McIntyre retain the titles by disqualification.
Daniel Bryan (c) vs. The Miz for the United States Championship: This match might happen due to the events that happened on Monday Night Raw, and The Miz saying how he will get back the United States Championship. The Miz and Daniel Bryan have already had a long history, dating back seven months to the first season of NXT, when The Miz was the pro of Bryan, but was criticizing him every week, saying how he had no charisma. At the Night of Champions PPV, Daniel Bryan made The Miz tap out to the LeBell lock to become the new United States Champion. On Raw this past week, The Miz attacked Bryan after his match, beating him up and giving him a skull crushing finale. Prediction: Daniel Bryan retains the championship via LeBell lock, forcing The Miz to tap out again.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett: This was another match announced on Monday Night Raw with a very interesting stipulation. The stipulation is that if Wade Barrett beats Cena at the PPV, Cena would be forced to join Nexus, but if Cena ends up victorious, Nexus must dissolve to never be heard from again. This match was made after Nexus distracted Cena, and helped to eliminate him in the Six-Pack Challenge match at Night of Champions. Cena and The Nexus have had their differences ever since Nexus made their shocking debut on Monday Night Raw a few months ago. Cena made his own team of WWE Superstars at SummerSlam (Team WWE) and beat The Nexus but this time, there will be a lot more on the line. Prediction: John Cena wins the match and Nexus is forced to disband and go their seperate ways.
Hell in a Cell Match – Kane (c) vs. The Undertaker for the World Heavyweight Championship: The co-main event of the night will likely see the World Heavyweight Champion Kane, going up against his brother, The Undertaker, in a match that both were pioneers in, and a match that both made famous, the Hell in a Cell Match. Kane and Taker have been feuding since The Undertaker returned at SummerSlam, and tried to get revenge on Kane, for putting him in a vegetative state, but Kane got the upper hand due to the weakness of Taker. Kane and Taker had a match at Night of Champions, with Kane retaining the title via tombstone piledriver. It is only fitting for their rivalry to end inside the Hell in a Cell, thirteen years after Kane made his debut in that same structure, costing The Undertaker a match against Shawn Michaels. Prediction: The Undertaker wins the World Heavyweight Championship for the fourth time with a chokeslam followed by a tombstone, showing who the better brother really is.
Hell in a Cell Match – Randy Orton (c) vs. Sheamus for the WWE Championship: The main event of the night will see new WWE Champion Randy Orton going one-on-one against Sheamus in the Hell in a Cell Match. Randy Orton won the world title for the seventh time in his career at the Night of Champions PPV, in the Six-Pack Elimination Match, last eliminating Sheamus with an RKO to pick up the victory. This match was announced on Monday Night Raw by the Raw Anonymous General Manager. Orton and Sheamus have been feuding for the last few months, with Orton getting the better of Sheamus on most instances, and on Monday Night Raw, it was no different, as Orton delivered an RKO on Sheamus and posed with the belt. Prediction: Randy Orton retains the WWE Championship with an RKO, after a grueling match.
