October is the perfect time to have an event with an evil feel around it. WWE has always done a good job of featuring one of their most hellacious matches during this month and it is no different for Sunday night.
Their annual Hell in a Cell pay-per-view is loaded with big time matches, headlined by the third version of Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker inside the demonic structure as the main event. It’s going to be a wild night and Campus Sports is here to take you through each match on the card.
Preshow: Neville, Dolph Ziggler, and Cesaro vs. King Barrett, Rusev, and Sheamus
What happens when fans are clamoring for a huge push for some of their favorite wrestlers? You put them in a six-man tag match on the pre-show that not many people will watch.
This match seems like a cop-out and something that was thrown together at the last minute, which it was since this match was originally supposed to be Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton vs Luke Harper and Braun Strowman, but was changed due to Orton injuring his shoulder. Fans won’t be happy until one of the faces, Neville, Ziggler, or Cesaro, are at the top of the company with gold around their waist.
Ziggler needs something new and a heel turn would do wonders for him. It’s likely he will turn his back on his partners and cost them the match, but it could relegate him the upper midcard until he finally decides to quit the company.
Winners: King Barrett, Rusev, and Sheamus
United States Open Challenge, John Cena (c) vs mystery opponent
It has been rumored that John Cena is going to be taking some time off in the near future and losing the title to a young upstart would do be the perfect scenario for him to do just that. There has been a lot of speculation on who will be his opponent, but it’s pretty obvious that former NXT superstar Tyler Breeze, who just debuted this week, will be answering the challenge and walking out with the championship.
Breeze is the perfect heel to come in and steal away the title from Cena. I would be inclined to say Daniel Bryan or Sami Zayn would be taking the challenge, but sense Breeze just debuted as a heel, it’s only fitting.
Winner and new United States champion: Tyler Breeze
Intercontinental Championship: Kevin Owens (c) vs Ryback
You would think that Owens would be dropping the title after winning his last few matches in a very heelish fashion. However, this match should serve as a jumping off pad for Owens to begin a huge run as champion.
It is very clear that the WWE doesn’t want to put Owens in the main event title picture right now and having someone hold onto the Intercontinental Championship for an extended period of time would be great to bring back prestige to the title. This would be great for both the title and Owens’s career.
Winner and still Intercontinental champion: Kevin Owens
WWE Tag Team Championship: New Day (c) vs The Dudley Boyz
Ever since the Dudley Boyz returned a month ago, fans have wanted to seem them win the tag team titles. It’s pretty obvious that the team is going to get a tenth reign and I think that is best for the company right now.
This feud has been amazing for the tag team division and it needs to go just a little longer. Having the Dudleys win the titles for a tenth time not only assures them a spot in the Hall of Fame some day, but will do wonders for New Day as well.
Winners and new WWE Tag Team champions: The Dudley Boyz
WWE Divas Championship: Charlotte (c) vs Nikki Bella
Charlotte must win this match to keep relevant with the fans. Nikki is going to be a commodity in the company no matter what happens, so allowing her to continue to chase for the title is best for business.
Numbers gain could be a big thing for Team Bella, but it only makes sense for Charlotte to walk out with the championship. It would be great to see Sasha Banks start a rivalry with Charlotte to make her long awaited run for the championship.
Winner and still Divas champion: Charlotte
Hell in a Cell match: Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt
The story between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker isn’t the only thing that is coming to an end tonight. This is going to be one hell of a fight between two people that hate each other with a passion.
Reigns almost has to win this match to get the “good guy win” that is pretty inevitable. It’s going to be fun to watch this match between these two monsters, but Reigns should get the win to end this feud for good.
Winner: Roman Reigns
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs Kane
If “Demon Kane” loses this match, “Corporate Kane” will lose his job as the Director of Operations. Kane has been doing a great job playing the dual role of someone who is clueless as to what his alter ego is doing.
However, this match has already been played out a few times and it hasn’t been good at all. Rollins will win this match and effectively end Kane’s career in WWE.
Winner and still WWE World Heavyweight champion: Seth Rollins
Hell in a Cell: Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker
This match should be a fun one to watch. It is going to be a fight between two people who genuinely don’t like each other. Lesnar has to look strong coming out of this match, so he must win.
Undertaker will get his chance to show that he is still The Phenom, but The Beast will be too much for him. It’s going to be fun and this match should make the entire show worth the $9.99,
Winner: Brock Lesnar
