I’m just going to come out and say this, my predictions for Hell in a Cell might be slightly off course, simply because All In ruined me. All In was so good, that I tried watching WWE RAW on Labor Day, and I didn’t even feel that same electricity for the show, like I did sitting in the Sears Centre for All In, that I actually shut RAW off. Now realizing as I write this, I haven’t watched any WWE programming for the last 2 weeks.
Lucky for me, instead of catching up and watching 10 hours of wrestling, I just put on my headphones, fired up some podcasts, and got my recaps from The Chris Rucker Show, Smark to Death, and The ADC’s of Wrestling. Based on the enthusiasm from all the shows, I got the feeling I didn’t miss much. So I laughed, I cried, I caught up in three hours, and now, here’s what I want to see this Sunday.
Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella vs. The Miz and Maryse
What I would like to happen: This feud is still hot, and can probably keep going for another PPV or two. While I don’t want The Miz and Maryse to lose, the best way to keep this going is to have Brie pin Maryse. When we see The Miz again on Smackdown, Miz gets fired up because while his team lost, HE didn’t lose, because HE didn’t get pinned, and Bryan is the coward, because his wife had to do the in ring work for him. Miz is pissed, Bryan is pissed, and the chaos keeps going.
What will most likely happen: Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella for the win, because Miz won last time, and we want this to keep going.
Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton
What I would like to happen: This is where All In ruined me. I have zero interest in this match. I know what Jeff Hardy used to bring, and this story line isn’t exciting for me, because Jeff will try to shine, and completely fail. This match could be in the Tokyo Dome, and it still wouldn’t generate a star for me.
What will most likely happen: Randy Orton is going to beat the snot out of Jeff Hardy, that the win doesn’t even matter.
The New Day vs. Rusev Day
What I would like to happen: “Rusev needs a belt! Rusev’s number one! Rusev needs a belt! Rusev’s number one!” It’s time to put Rusev Day over. Everyone wants Aiden English to turn on Rusev, I want them to get the belts and start dominating the same boring tag teams we see over and over.
What will most likely happen: All signs point to New Day retaining.
Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose
What I would like to happen: This might be the match of the night, and I have too many outcomes to choose from. I want Dolph and Drew to win, because Drew deserves a championship. I don’t really care that Ambrose doesn’t have a belt, because he’s so over, it doesn’t matter. But I don’t care who wins or loses this match (but leaning towards Drew), this has potential to be match of the year
What will most likely happen: The Shield will be victorious, after Dolph goes to superkick Ambrose, and hits McIntyre instead, and then the fans get that turn they wanted from Aiden English, but instead it’s Drew that turns on Dolph.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch
What I would like to happen: Becky needs to make Charlotte her bitch. If Becky loses, she doesn’t get another title shot without some sort of justification. I want Becky to win the title, but not at Hell in a Cell. I think there is more prestige if she wins the belt at Evolution, and that becomes the most talked about match from that PPV.
What will most likely happen: Charlotte is going to win, Becky will beat her down after the match, crowd pops the roof of the event. Rematch inevitable.
Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey
What I would like to happen: I like both of these women. I hate squash matches. Before this becomes another squash match, we need a swerve. We know Alexa isn’t getting the belt, so let’s make this the match that starts the Evolution talk. Mickie James and Alicia Fox come down to the ring. Than Natalia and Trish come down. As a brawl starts, the Bella’s try coming down, until the music for Nia Jax hits. Not knowing who’s side Nia is on, she beats down all the women, and demands a three way match at Evolution with Nikka Bella and Ronda Rousey, because she never got her rematch.
What will most likely happen: Squash match part 2, Ronda destroys Alexa.
Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles
What I would like to happen: Just want to see an all out brawl. Love AJ, but we need a title change here. This build for this feud has been great, and AJ needs to get that fire back with a loss. Who doesn’t want to see Joe holding a belt, and talking shit on the mic?
What will most likely happen: I keep wanting to see AJ lose the belt, and every time I do that, he wins. Expect a hard fought win from AJ.
Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns
What I would like to happen: I want to see a fight between these two. I want to see that same intensity when they feuded earlier and got ambulances turned over, and trucks flying all over the place. Don’t even care about the outcome, Give us a “Holy Shit!” moment.
What will most likely happen: This match has so much potential, I see WWE dropping the ball on this one. Main reason, Mick Foley is the ref. I’ll expect him to take a bump from trying to make a three count, before getting thrown out of the ring by Strowman. I expect Corbin to come out, holding the briefcase, to try and cash it in for himself. Before he can make a pin, Kurt Angle returns and before he can say Corbin isn’t eligible, Roman goes for the pin on Corbin, and Foley makes the three count. Strowman pretty much gets punked and gets nothing.
