Here we are again, everybody. Sunday, October 30th is “Hell In A Cell”, and this will be one to watch for sure. Why? For the first time, we will see a women’s Hell in a Cell match between two of the best on the business, Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair. Will it be the main event? Who knows? Will we get tired after watching three cell matches in one night? Maybe. In any case, I’m back and I’ve got Adam with me. So, for those of you watching the show on Sunday, here are our 2016 Hell In A Cell predictions.
Kickoff Match: Sin Cara, Lince Dorado, and Cedric Alexander vs. Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, and Ariya Daivari
Nick: I don’t see this making much difference in one way or the other because it’s on the kickoff show and it’s a six-man tag. Although, I will say that I think Sin Cara and Lince Dorado are being pushed as a team. We know that Nese and Gulak are already at that point, and they’ve got some wins under their belt already. I think the babyface Sin Cara and Company go over in the kickoff.
Adam: I think (and hope) that they’ll let Cedric Alexander show off how good he is, en route to a push where they will start to turn him into someone who could soon be challenging the Cruiserweight Champion.
Bayley vs. Dana Brooke
Nick: I’ve definitely got Bayley. I don’t see her losing this match at all.
Adam: I don’t see why Bayley shouldn’t get some added momentum here with a win; there’s no reason why Dana would win this match.
Enzo and Cass vs. Gallows and Anderson
Nick: Enzo and Cass are doing phenomenally right now, and we’ve seen that they can afford a loss. It wouldn’t do much to their momentum if they lost here because they’ve still been extremely entertaining. Gallows and Anderson are at a point of do or die and need a win desperately. I’m picking Gallows and Anderson.
Adam: My gut instinct is that Enzo and Cass get a big win, as they wait for their eventual tag team title reign.
TJ Perkins (c) vs. Brian Kendrick: Cruiserweight Championship
Nick: I think Brian Kendrick is walking away with the title. The Cruiserweight division could use the shake-up, and I think that Kendrick would make a great champion. He would certainly be an interesting face of the division.
Adam: First, let me say Brian Kendrick has done a fantastic job as the heel in this feud. But, I can’t imagine him winning the title because it seems smarter to put over the younger performers with more time left in their career.
The New Day (c) vs. Cesaro and Sheamus: Raw Tag Team Championships
Nick: New Day has to win here, no question. There is always mention being made of the fact that they are so close to breaking the all-time tag team title reign record, and they won’t give up the belts until they’ve broken it.
Adam: What I would guess here is that Cesaro and Sheamus put up an outstanding fight in an even better match, and the New Day wins because of some sort of shenanigans, furthering Cesaro and Sheamus’s babyface turn, as well as the heel turn of the New Day.
Roman Reigns (c) vs. Rusev: United States Championship
Nick: I don’t think Roman Reigns is going to lose a Hell in a Cell match, especially not to Rusev right now. Don’t be fooled, he’s still being pushed into a world title picture even though he’s the U.S champ. I don’t see him losing this match at all.
Adam: I think there’s no doubt Roman goes over in this one, as they (hopefully) continue the effort to make the U.S title mean something.
Sasha Banks (c) vs. Charlotte: Raw Women’s Championship
Nick: I think that either way this goes, no one will be disappointed by the match. I expect great things to come from both competitors, as there is additional interest in this match because of the history it will make. Sasha was meant to have a lengthy run as champion before her injury, so I think that her reign will continue. Now, we all know what Adam’s going to say. Alright, go ahead.
Adam: If they take the belt off of the Boss again, I will have officially lost all hope in WWE, and it’s not just because of how good Sasha Banks is. The idea that they’d implement a championship that was prestigious, and then change the title-holder four times in as many months is silly. The only thing that would be even more silly is if these two performers didn’t go on last, because they’re that good.
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth Rollins: Universal Championship
Nick: Both guys have a great shot at winning this match, and it really could go either way. Seth Rollins has been in the cell before, while Kevin Owens hasn’t. At the same time, Owens would do great with a longer title run and he’s got Triple H watching his back. I still believe that Seth Rollins should have to chase the title for a little bit longer to prolong the feud and give it a big payoff once he eventually takes the championship.
Adam: While I hope they let these two wrestle with no interference, I can’t help but assume Stephanie McMahon or Triple H will help KO win the match, as we start the build to a Seth Rollins-HHH Wrestlemania feud.
