WWE Hell in a Cell 2016 Spoilers

WWE Universal Championship Hell in a Cell: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth Rollins

I guess Rollins isn't too injured, right? These guys are two of my favorites on the roster, so I'm excited to see what they pull out. I fully expect Owens to retain the championship through some kind of bullshittery. Whether that's from Chris Jericho (who doesn't have a match scheduled yet) or Triple H is still up for guesses, though.

PREDICTION: Kevin Owens retains.

WWE United States Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Rusev

It's pretty lame that this is supposed to be considered a big enough feud to have in the cage, but that's the problem with the Hell in a Cell being a pay-per-view to begin with, instead of just a match that can be brought out at any time when necessary. This damn sure better be the end of their program together. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the most brutal of the three cage matches, though. Rollins was just injured, so they'll want to take it easy, and the Raw Women's Championship match just absolutely will not be some reiteration of Foley v Taker from King of the Ring. I expect this to have the biggest spot of the night, and if that happens, then that should be fun.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns retains the title.

WWE Raw Women's Championship Hell in a Cell Match: Sasha Banks (c) vs. Charlotte

This is monumental for the women's division, as it's never been done before. There's only a handful of women talented enough to pull this off and Sasha Banks and Charlotte are two of them. However, don't get your hopes up that this is going to be something more than it isn't. Remember, Hell in a Cell matches are just regular No Disqualification bouts surrounded by a cage. Typically, the cage comes less in play than it would in a standard steel cage match. You're only setting yourself up for disappointment if you think Sasha and Charlotte are going to beat each other into bloody messes with weapons and steel fencing. They'll likely keep things down to Charlotte ramming Sasha into the cage on the outside and some other minor things like that while Rusev and Roman Reigns do the more violent spots to help protect Seth Rollins, too. That's not to say this can't be a good match, though. Just keep your expectations within reason and you'll probably not be disappointed.

PREDICTION: Sasha Banks retains the title.

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The New Day (c) vs. Sheamus & Cesaro

Mick Foley decided that since Sheamus and Cesaro ended their Best of Seven Series with a draw, they should both get a championship match, swerving everybody by making it for the Raw Tag Team Championship. Since Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson failed to capture the titles yet again, the next in line became The Swiss Superman and The Celtic Warrior. Since The New Day are so close (December) to beating Demolition's record, I'll be really annoyed if they drop the belts to a makeshift feuding tag team. That's been done so many times in the past just to push the two singles stars and within no time, they drop the titles. Such a pointless transitional reign is not worth cutting The New Day short.

PREDICTION: The New Day retains after Sheamus and Cesaro can't get along. They'd better retain, at least...

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

I'm a fan of both of these guys, so I'm totally on board with seeing another match between the two. It's still way too early to take the title away from Perkins, no matter how good Kendrick is. This should be one of the most fundamentally entertaining matches of the night.

PREDICTION: T.J. Perkins retains.

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

Enzo and Cass weren't on Clash of Champions, so it would suck to see them not scheduled for Hell in a Cell as well. On a similar token, Gallows and Anderson shouldn't be left off this card, either. I mentioned pairing these two teams up several weeks ago, and it appears they're going that route. Whether this is on the pre-show or the main card, it will still be interesting to see.

PREDICTION: Gallows and Anderson win to offset their recent losses.

Bayley vs. Dana Brooke

After that arm wrestling match the crowd was completely not receptive for, they definitely needed to add this match to the card.

PREDICTION: Bayley wins.

Pre-Show Kickoff Match: Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado & Sin Cara vs. Tony Nese, Drew Gulak & Ariya Daivari

Very surprised this match has been added, but we still don't have Braun Strowman against Sami Zayn. Anyway, this should be a fun yet skippable match, as nothing is on the line, but the cruiserweights know how to put on a good show.

PREDICTION: Team Babyface wins.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 10/29/2016)

Braun Strowman vs. Sami Zayn

Sami Zayn decided to stand up to Braun Strowman, and as punishment for that, he's going to get wrecked.

PREDICTION: See ya Zayn.

Bo Dallas vs. Curtis Axel (vs. Neville?)

I could imagine the pre-show including a match between either Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel or Bo Dallas and Neville, perhaps even a triple threat.

PREDICTION: Axel loses if he's in the match, but Neville wins if he's involved.
