With WWE’s Hell in a Cell 2012 Sunday night, the excitement over the pay-per-view card and the possible storyline swerves has the WWE Universe at a fever pitch.

Hell in a Cell may be a secondary PPV, but the intrigue around the event and the main event has everyone talking. With Survivor Series just a month away, it’s time for some serious swerves.

All of the following storyline plot twists are options for the company coming into Hell in a Cell, but let’s hope the WWE follows through and breathes new life into the product.


Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow Stealing Gold

With the momentum of the champions Kane and Daniel Bryan is as high as any tag team has been in years, the thought of letting the duo lose the titles already is something many fans can’t imagine happening.

Be careful, WWE Universe; this is going to happen.

The idea that Kane and Daniel Bryan are still having a hard time working together is still viable, and Team Rhodes Scholars has been working great together. Rhodes and Sandow could win this and be legitimate champions.

Leading into Survivor Series, what better way to add intrigue to the storyline than having the babyface Team Hell No chase Rhodes Scholars for the titles? 

WWE could let the two teams fight again and allow Team Hell No win the titles back or let both teams get involved in a possible main-event Survivor Series match.


Sheamus Losing the World Title

After holding the belt since WrestleMania, Sheamus has been in need of more depth to his character. Now that his reign is over six months, it’s time for Big Show to steal the spotlight and win the World Title.

Big Show has been at his best during this heel run and is far more entertaining than he ever was as a face. With the storyline about Sheamus underestimating Big Show convincing the WWE Universe that an upset is possible, the audience is ready to believe Show can win the title.

With a bigger possible swerve coming that would also include Big Show and Sheamus joining a 5-on-5 Survivor Series match, this title bout could be the foundation of a company-wide swerve in the main event.


Brock Lesnar Returns

With Raw ratings plummeting and one of the company’s four biggest PPVs on the horizon, the WWE will go all–in and bring back former UFC and WWE champion Brock Lesnar.

The company needs CM Punk to retain his WWE title over Ryback, so the perfect way to hand Punk the win and hand the undefeated novice Ryback his first loss would be to start a feud between Brock and Ryback.

The WWE Universe can’t forget that John Cena will be added back into the mix when his arm is fully healed, so the perfect way to add all of these pieces together will be a conventional Survivor Series match.

After Lesnar gets Punk the win by destroying Ryback, Paul Heyman will go on to lead a five-man stable of Punk, Lesnar, Big Show and the tag team of Rhodes Scholars against Cena, Ryback, Sheamus and Team Hell No into one of the best Survivor Series main events in history.

With ratings dropping to terrible new lows, it’s time for the company to pull out the big swerves and give the WWE Universe something new and unique to get behind.
