WWE Hell in a Cell 2016 predictions

Published

on

The infamous Hell in a Cell structure will be touching down in Boston tomorrow where a triple main event will take place inside of the TD Garden. Here are my predictions for what will hopefully be the first memorable HIAC event we’ve had in a while.

Sasha Banks (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (RAW Women’s Championship)

This match should be the true main event of the “triple main event” but were likely not going to know until tomorrow night when this show actually airs. I expect it to steal the show regardless of placement and I also expect Banks to retain and end Charlotte’s perfect 12-0 PPV record.

Should Charlotte blade as an ode to her father and to make the Cell mean something again; can the girls make everything that Mick Foley said count? I’m sure they’d love to – that all depends on if the WWE brass will let them. Cursing, bleeding and doing anything kind of edgy on WWE programming seems to be solely reserved for the likes of Vince, HHH, Roman, Lesnar and Taker right now. We’ll see if that gets opened up to the women for what could be and should be a historic night. The match has been booked and we know the talent can deliver. Will WWE let them do so like NXT did?

Prediction: Match of the night. In the end, Banks retains and the crowd goes home happy.

Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth Rollins (Universal Championship)

It’s too early to take the title off Owens, especially when you consider that Survivor Series is going to be in Canada and there’d be no better time or place for him and Jericho to break up their meaningful friendship than there. Even though this match is in the Cell, it’s probably the one match where you’ll get interference from Jericho (and maybe even HHH).

Prediction: Owens retains and Rollins gets the ever loving bleep kicked out of him to draw more sympathy from the fans to complete his ongoing babyface turn world tour.

Roman Reigns (c) vs. Rusev (United States Championship)

This program needs to end yesterday and these guys need something fresh. Unfortunately, with Survivor Series coming up, we’re not likely to get anything new until the lead up to TLC or quite possibly even next year.

Prediction: With Reigns outside of the world title picture, there’s really no reason to take the US title off of for quite some time.

The New Day (c) vs. Sheamus & Cesaro (RAW Tag Team Championship)

I think I’ve predicted The New Day to drop the titles for the last two or three PPV’s now. With all the talk of them breaking Demolition’s 478-day record it would only make sense from them to hang on (they won’t be forced to defend the titles at Survivor Series) and break it.

Prediction: That’s why I’m taking Sheamus and Cesaro to win.

T.J. Perkins (c) vs. Brian Kendrick (Cruiserweight Championship)

It appears that Kendrick is the favorite to leave Boston with the cruiserweight strap around his shoulder. I can’t even begin to list how many problems I have with this. I’ll try to keep it short.

1. Perkins just won this title last month after a hard fought tournament involving 32 competitors. Give the man an extended run as the inaugural champ and when he finally loses let’s have it mean something.

2. Nothing against Kendrick but I could name about a dozen other guys who would be a better feud for Perkins after this feud is over. Let’s start with Rich Swann and go from there.

3. No more video games references, please.

4. How come we get Sin Cara in the cruiserweight division and not Neville?

Sorry, not sorry, about getting off topic there.

Prediction: Let’s hope Perkins retains and Kendrick is used to help get Perkins’ future challengers over.

Quick Picks

Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson

Bayley vs. Dana Brooke

Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado and Sin Cara vs. Tony Nese, Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari
