Hell In A Cell Preview: There Will Be Hell To Pay
Tonight World Wrestling Entertainment returns to Pay Per View with their inaugural Hell In A Cell show. The twenty foot high structure will be in full effect featuring two big bouts , Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt and the main event the beast Brock Lesnar going one on one with The Undertaker. The monstrous Hell In A Cell will put an end to a storied rivalry and i will give you my prediction to that match and the rest of this interesting match card.
Kickoff Match: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville vs. King Barrett, Sheamus, and Rusev
The night will kickoff with an action packed six man tag team match that puts six rising stars in the company “The Show off” Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and “The Man Gravity Forgot” Neville vs the ruthless King Barrett, Mr. Money In The Bank Sheamus, and the Bulgarian Brute Rusev. This match should set the tone for what should be an awesome night of wrestling featuring six guys who can perform in the ring.
Prediction: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville
Intercontinental Championship: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Ryback
It is a battle of two big time players when the prizefighter Kevin Owens defends his title against the hungry and determined Ryback. After defeating Ryback at Night of Champions Kevin Owens put the WWE Universe on notice that he means business and he will take on anybody who steps before him. When a disgruntled Ryback answered the challenge on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw making a statement of his own after hitting the champ with a massive powerbomb it’s safe to say that the big guy is ready for war.
Prediction: Kevin Owens
In order for the Intercontinental Championship to keep some steam and to build up a guy like Kevin Owens keep the belt on him. Owens has already proved that he’s a main event caliber guy in WWE and even more than capable of having big matches with guys like Cesaro or Dolph Ziggler and personally i would like to see him feud with Daniel Bryan if he makes a comebcack.
WWE Tag Team Championships: The New Day(c) vs The Dudley Boyz
After being a victim to another vicious table thrashing at the hands of the Dudley Boyz, it looks like Xavier Woods will not be a factor in the tag team warfare. But do not sleep on the powers or The New Day the champions have been showing pure dominance for the past couple of weeks on Raw and SmackDown and they will be ready to take on the veteran tag team. With the numbers game even Bubba Ray and Devon look to take down their rivals and claim their tenth Tag Team Championship reign who will come out on top in this one.
Prediction: The New Day
After this match yours truly will be CLAPPING FOR YOUR TWO TIME TAG TEAM CHAMPS AND FEELING THE POWER!!! Lets face it guys Big E, Kofi, and Xavier Woods are good together and the most entertaining thing we’ve seen on raw since DX in 2006. These guys also make the Tag Team belts relevant again and don’t get me wrong i will be a huge Dudley Boyz fan forever but its time for us to embrace the new day by clapping and saying these three words…. Still Tag Champs! Still Tag Champs!(if only i knew how to play trumbone)
John Cena’s Open Challenge for the United States Championship
John Cena has proven time and time again that he is a fighting champion. Ever since winning the United States Title at WrestleMania Cena has taken on all comers and beaten them all. This time is no different John Cena has laid out the challenge and someone will step up to the plate and go one on one with one of the best champions in WWE history.
Prediction: mystery opponent
i always used to say that John Cena would never lose any championship he held to someone other than Randy Orton, CM Punk, Triple H, or Brock Lesnar but obviously the purpose of these open challenges is not just to show that cena is still a relevant champion but its to put the younger guys over in a way by putting on a good match with the face of the company. For example, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens but my prediction is The Miz I think he is a guy capable of beating Cena and keeping the prestige of the U.S. Title up.
Divas Championship: Charlotte(c) vs. Nikki Bella
The divas revolution is hot right now as the champion Charlotte defends against former champion Nikki Bella. With Team PCB in turmoil due to the actions of Paige recently it looks like the loss of a teammate was getting to Charlotte which led Nikki Bella to take advantage of the opportunity to enforce her rematch against Charlotte. Can the champion regroup and defeat her challenger one more time or will the longest reigning divas champion in history regain her spot on the top of the divas division.
Charlotte is a good champion I feel like she should keep the belt for a while hopefully start a feud with Sasha Banks or Paige after this.
Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns (Hell In A Cell Match)
A deeply personal rivalry will come to a head inside WWE’s most unforgiving structure. Roman Reigns collides with the menacing Bray Wyatt inside Hell In A Cell these two have had brutal contests for the past couple months and with just these two warriors locked in a cell the possibility for brutality is endless. after weeks of the mind games and torment coming from Bray and his Wyatt Family followers Last Monday on Raw Roman Reigns played the mind games asking Bray Wyatt if he was scared to be locked in a cell alone with no help Wyatt and his followers tried to one up Reigns but his partner Dean Ambrose would come to even up the score a little bit. who will win the battle inside the dangerous Hell In A Cell can Roman Reigns prevail or will Bray Wyatt use his evil tactics to come out on top.
Prediction: Bray Wyatt
with the return of Erick Rowan its looking like the Wyatt Family will be in full force which is good why not start up some chaos and anarchy on the show with Bray Wyatt leading Rowan, Harper, and Strowman on a path of destruction among the WWE. If they want to continue branding Wyatt as the new face of fear a win over Roman Reigns would be the start of something good here.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins(c) vs. Kane
At Hell In A Cell Kane gets a rare opportunity at championship gold when he faces the champ Seth Rollins. After making his masked return at Night of Champions Kane made it his duty to terrorize and get under the skin of the champion but his actions would soon have consequences when The Authority got involed. Stephanie McMahon laid down the law on Kane saying if he fails to defeat Rollins at Hell In A Cell then Corporate Kane will be relieved of his duties as the Director of Operations. When Seth Rollins steps into hell with the devils favorite demon will he get burned or come out unscathed. Or will Kane realize his destiny and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Prediction: Seth Rollins
Come on guys this is what I like to call a filler rivalry for Seth the real question is who is he going to face along the line like at Survivor Series, TLC, Royal Rumble, Wrestle Kingdom etc. This is why WWE needs to go back to the number one contender format when you randomly pick a name out of a hat and put them against Seth it makes it hard to get the story across to the viewer if there was like a number one contenders tournament it would give people a chance to see who they want to cheer for and to see who would be a fit as a reasonable opponent for the championship especially with this Money In The Bank situation.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker (Hell In A Cell Match)
A controversial finish at SummerSlam led to a storied rivalry between two of the best ever in WWE become a personal rivalry. The hatred between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker is well documented from their first Hell In A Cell encounter in 2002 all the way to WrestleMania XXX when the beast conquered the streak. For the final time these two giants will collide and put an end to a bloody and brutal rivalry and what a way to end such a rivalry Hell In A Cell. Will the beast conquer the phenom one more time or will The Deadman stake claim to his domain in his yard Hell In A Cell.
Prediction: Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar is the man right now at the peak of his career if the WWE wants him to keep looking strong for another title push why not take out the biggest dog in the business The Undertaker. Now I know Taker is billed as a huge draw for WrestleMania in Dallas next year I am just as excited about that as you guys are but hear me out The Undertaker will be fine!! He knows what he’s getting into with Lesnar tonight and even though i think WWE is putting too much hype on his health he can lose to Brock Lesnar and win his final match against whoever at WrestleMania and go into the Hall of Fame its all good guys.
