WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 Matches, Predictions, Schedule, How to Watch: Brock Lesnar, Undertaker in Cage Match
"WWE Hell in a Cell" comes live from Los Angeles, where Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker are scheduled to have their final match together.
Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro and Neville vs. Rusev, Sheamus and King Barrett:
This match was made last minute during "Monday Night Raw" as each individual, basically, had no storyline and the original match featuring Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose was pulled due to an apparent injury on Orton.
Prediction: Three names deserve the win to further build their heel personas: Rusev, Sheamus and Barrett
Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens vs. Ryback:
Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens has had a decent but not stellar title run. While he continues to perform top-notch matches, there hasn't been a strong story in his feud with Ryback. Neither individual is to blame but there's no real investment in a match with an obvious winner to this feud.
Prediction: Owens wins.
Open Challenge: United States Championship: John Cena (c) vs. TBA
John Cena continues his open challenge for the first time on pay per view. He's definitely lived up the mantra of being a "fighting champ," but it could backfire on Sunday night.
Prediction: Being John Cena is like holding a championship title itself. He doesn't need the United States Championship and should lose it to a new name -- perhaps Tyler Breeze or a fellow NXT name; it'll further promote the new WWE Network show "Breaking Ground."
WWE Divas Champion Charlotte (c) vs. Nikki Bella:
The divas revolution rolls on with Charlotte's first pay-per-view event defending the Divas Championship against the longest-reigning Divas Champion Nikki Bella. Since winning the title, there has not been much development between Nikki and Charlotte's storyline as there's also the story between Natalya and Paige and Sasha Banks' rising star power. Charlotte has barely received promo time to further build her persona as well as Nikki looking like a viable contender to become three-time Divas Champion.
Prediction: Charlotte wins. It is too soon to cut Charlotte's title reign, and she is someone the company is definitely trying to build. Nikki loses but she won't be out of the title picture unless the WWE decides to give Banks the proper main-roster spotlight.
Hell in a Cell: Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns:
Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns have been feuding for several months, which included Dean Ambrose to support his former Shield brethren. While this feud should have ended at least two months ago, the conclusion seems set inside the Hell in a Cell structure. In fact, the storyline has improved with Reigns looking more determined, as do most fans, to finish Wyatt.
Prediction: Unfortunately, as with most concluding matches featuring Wyatt, he will lose. Reigns will win since he's the rising star. With Dean Ambrose, as of Friday afternoon, without a match, he is likely to make an appearance during the cage match.
WWE Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. The Dudley Boyz:
The New Day continues to be the most entertaining name(s) in each WWE broadcast. The feud with the Dudleys is more of an after thought due to the creative and entertaining antics and promos by New Day. Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods are already popular with the fans, even as the team you'd love to hate, that they could continue without the tag titles. One advantage for the Dudleys is the potential injury to Woods, who was put through a table on "Raw."
Prediction: Surprisingly, the WWE still didn't schedule a tables match. The Dudleys are favored to win since New Day will still have the charisma to maintain relevancy on the roster. The New Day will soon become three-time champions later this year.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Kane: If Kane Loses, then "Corporate" Kane is Fired:
Seth Rollins defends his title against Kane in a match that has some positive interest due to how Kane has managed to portray two different personalities. Since "Night of Champions," Rollins continue to fight whatever is thrown his way but has been unable to thwart Kane. Stephanie McMahon issues the stipulation that Kane's "corporate" duties will be relieved if he loses.
Prediction: Rollins wins. Although fans will be losing "corporate" Kane, this may be a further indication of Kane's likely retirement or winding down of his in-ring career, or the full-time return of the masked Kane on WWE broadcasts. Fans should also await the increased likelihood of Sheamus cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase. With WWE's ratings continuing to decline, the company could attempt a surprise, such as with the Money in the Bank, to help boost viewership.
Hell in a Cell: Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker:
It's round three for Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker, with each man having a win during previous pay-per-view events. There has not been much build for the third match unlike the previous two. Lesnar probably did more to advance the storyline with his current "Go to Hell" tour. Video promos, if anything, helped build the storyline as Undertaker only appeared on WWE television this past Monday.
Prediction: It's not an easy choice but the win is for The Undertaker. He's an important figure in the company and the WWE will want to maintain that for the next "WrestleMania." Lesnar most likely has more appearance dates in his contract, and will take the loss, which he can regain by mercifully beating down anyone else that appears his way after Sunday.
