It seems like I just finished writing my predictions for Night Of Champions and here I am writing my predictions for WWE Hell In A Cell.
Having only two weeks between pay-per-views has shown us one one thing: WWE doesn't have the time to announce matches in only fourteen days. So with only four matches announced so far, I am also going to have predictions for the two matches that I believe will be added on Smackdown or right before the event.
My predictions on Night Of Champions didn't go so well, I was correct only on two out of the seven matches. That brings my overall record to eight out of fourteen. I hope to improve this month.
Alright, lets go.
UNIFIED DIVA'S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Michelle McCool(c) vs. Natalya
First off, while WWE hasn't officially announced this match, the official website of the American Airlines Arena is advertising it for the event. I know that doesn't mean it's happening but it's more than likely.
It's nice to see WWE giving Natalya a singles push after around two years of doing pretty much nothing other than escort the Hart Dynasty to the ring. She's arguably the best in-ring diva the WWE has but those of you who only watch WWE wouldn't know that.
Since Day 1 of the LayCool gimmick, I have hated it with a passion. If I wanted to see two girls calling other divas stupid names and act like children, I'd go back to high school. Now, that being said, Michelle McCool is one of the most underrated divas in the WWE in terms of wrestling ability, although near Natalya.
These two actually have fought before when the Diva's championship was first created at Great American Bash 2008. I hoped Natalya would win back then and I still do know, although I expect to be disappointed once again.
MY PICK: Michelle McCool
Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio
Rey Mysterio is returning to Smackdown Friday night and will challenge Del Rio to a match for that night. I believe Del Rio will accept but not for Friday but at Hell In A Cell.
Although this match was probably originally meant to be Christian vs. Del Rio, and we knew that Juan Bradshaw Layfield would be coming out on top in that one, but with Mysterio now inserted, I'm not so sure. Sure, they want to keep Del Rio strong, but do they really want Mysterio to lose his first match back.
My solution comes from something I read on rajah.com a couple days ago. There has been talk of turning Kaval heel and Mysterio was reportedly asking to have have a program with Kaval while he was still on NXT.
If WWE were to allow it, Mysterio vs. Kaval could produce numerous match of the year candidates, and it could all start Sunday night with Kaval costing Mysterio the victory.
MY PICK: Alberto Del Rio
TRIPLE-THREAT SUBMISSIONS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH FOR THE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP
Daniel Bryan(c) vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison
What do we have here? A submission match with only one guy that has a submission move. While this match has a good shot of being match of the night, it's quite obvious what will happen. Bryan making Morrison tap out so Miz can be kept strong.
MY PICK: Daniel Bryan
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett
If Cena wins, Nexus must disband.
If Barrett wins, Cena must join Nexus.
The match that we have all been waiting for, either in anticipation or just to get the whole thing over with.
With all of the talk of John Cena turning heel, Sunday night could be the night it all goes down. But lets face it, we've all been saying John Cena is going to turn heel since 2006, and guess what? It hasn't happened, and don't expect it to happen anytime soon.
Since these two haven't wrestled each other in singles matches before, I'm not sure of there chemistry. This could turn out to be good match but it could also turn into an unwatchable disaster.
MY PICK: John Cena
HELL IN A CELL MATCH FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP
Randy Orton(c) vs. Sheamus
Really there is only one reason to watch this match: to count how many colors Sheamus' skin turns during the match.
I don't think they're going to take the belt off Orton and give it right back to Sheamus, but with WWE planning Sheamus to take on Undertaker at Wrestlemania, they could.
MY PICK: Randy Orton
Now for something totally unexpected.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
After a long, hard match and post-match attack by Sheamus, Randy Orton is being helped out of the ring when all of a sudden... he hears the music that no WWE Champion wants to hear after a hard fought match.
Randy Orton(c) vs. The Miz
The Miz runs down the ramp with the briefcase, attacks the doctors assisting Orton and throws him back in the ring. He hands the briefcase to the ref and cashes in. Orton gets up, Miz gives him the Skull Crushing Finale, and we have a new WWE Champion
MY PICK: The Miz
HELL IN A CELL MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Kane(c) vs. Undertaker(with Paul Bearer)
Well as I said in my NOC predictions, Kane would win two weeks ago and Undertaker would take the belt this Sunday. My opinion hasn't changed. With WWE considering Kane vs. Undertaker in a Buried Alive match at Survivor Series, I could see the whole Undertaker sending Kane back to Parts Unknown(Hell been done in HIAC before) for a month and a half until Survivor Series.
MY PICK: Undertaker
Well, I know you guys will have comments about my prediction about The Miz cashing in, so bring'em on.
