SmackDown presents WWE Hell in a Cell 2017 Spoilers

WWE mistakenly has this with the No Mercy graphic and even labeled as a No Mercy match lol.

WWE Championship Match: Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

The feud has consisted of nothing but Nakamura winning two No. 1 contender matches and then these two fighting. Mahal is a terrible champion who can't cut more than the same promo every week and Nakamura can't even do that (but at least he's fun to watch in the ring). In any fashion, I have no interest in this feud and wish we just had other people in the title picture instead.

PREDICTIONS: Let's go with Jinder Mahal retaining.

Hell in a Cell Match: Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon

The real question is whether this is going to be the main event of the night or the WWE Championship match. What's sad is this is a textbook example of two problems: 1) we don't need Hell in a Cell to always be in a set time of the year as a pay-per-view, as it works better if they only bring the gimmick out when necessary, 2) the WWE title picture isn't hot enough to justify putting in the cage, so they had to manufacture this Owens/McMahon feud to have something in the cell.

Meh, it can be fun, but I don't have supremely high hopes for this. Hell in a Cell matches aren't anywhere near as good as they used to be, because they're much safer now. You can't blame them for that, but that doesn't mean you have to like the end result just because it's the smarter decision to make for everyone's health. Given the choice, I'd pick a better card with better feuds than NEEDING to have a Hell in a Cell match just because it's called Hell in a Cell instead of Breaking Point or Over the Limit or something.

PREDICTIONS: Kevin Owens is victorious, unless they plan on moving him to Raw, in which case Shane capitalizes on Owens taking a fall and wins.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Hell in a Cell Match: The New Day (c) vs. The Usos

Yup. Another match between the two teams. There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said the past what, five events? At least it's a Hell in a Cell match now, which will help make it slightly interesting. The match itself will be good even if the feud has gone on a bit too long.

PREDICTIONS: The New Day retain.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Natalya (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

Makes sense. I'm not opposed to it, but I'm also not going to be thrilled about it like it's something I'm legitimately looking forward to. I can see Charlotte winning here and still holding onto the title at WrestleMania time, when she, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Bayley take on the Four Horsewomen of MMA.

PREDICTIONS: Based on her track record, you have to assume Charlotte is the favorite here, right?

United States Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Baron Corbin

I probably would have preferred a triple threat match that included Tye Dillinger, but meh, this was still the main trajectory they were going, so that's not surprising. I'm sincerely hoping Baron Corbin wins the title here so AJ Styles can take the WWE Championship off Jinder Mahal soon.

PREDICTIONS: Baron Corbin wins the title.

Dolph Ziggler vs. Bobby Roode

I'm still of the opinion that Bobby Roode as a babyface isn't the right idea right now, but a match between him and Dolph Ziggler is something I've been looking forward to for a long while, so I'm definitely excited about this.

PREDICTIONS: Bobby Roode wins.

Rusev vs. Randy Orton

This feud has sucked and I have zero interest in it.

PREDICTIONS: Who cares? It doesn't matter. Orton, I guess, but Rusev needs it more.

Pre-Show Kickoff Match: Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin vs. The Hype Bros

This further adds credence to the theory that The Hype Bros will be turning heel soon. I expect them to come up short here and be upset about the loss. This could be a pretty fun match.

PREDICTIONS: Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin are victorious.
