Welcome everyone to my predictions for the 2018 Hell in a Cell PPV. With some crazy feuds this month sees Reigns defending his Universal Championship for the first time against Braun Strowman inside Hell of a Cell and will Becky Lynch regain the SmackDown Women’s Championship? Let’s find out.
|Hell in a Cell match|
|Randy Orton||vs||Jeff Hardy|
|PREDICTION: This has been one of the best feuds of 2018 and the best that Randy Orton has been in for a good while. Jeff shouldn’t be doing Swanton Bomb’s anymore from the top but you know that he is going to do it. RKO knows that he can put on a good match and I believe it is very fitting that it is going to happen inside HIAC. Jeff Hardy to win.
WINNER: Randy Orton
|Mixed Tag-Team Match|
|The Miz & Maryse||vs||Daniel Bryan &
|PREDICTION: For a match that was supposed to be just Bryan v Miz has turned out to be a fantastic feud between Maryse and Brie. While Brie is still a bit rusty this should be a safe match for her and it will be the husbands that’ll be doing the heavy lifting in this match. Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella to win.
WINNER: The Miz & Maryse
|SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match|
|The New Day (C)||vs||Rusev & Aiden English|
|PREDICTION: This has been a nothing feud, there has been no ‘hype’ to this feud and it’s really degrading the titles by not having a proper story. This all came about all because of a tournament. It would be nice to see The Bar interfere and then challenge them for the Tag Titles at the next PPV (TLC). The New Day to retain.
WINNER: The New Day Retain!
|RAW Tag Team Championship Match|
| Dolph Ziggler &
|vs||Seth Rollins &
|PREDICTION: I have been really enjoying this feud and I am happy that Ziggler/McIntyre is tag champs as I don’t know what the hell WWE did with The B-Team…Anyway Seth is looking to become a double champion again. by holding both the Intercontinental Championship & RAW Tag Titles (Yes again, he had a small run with the WWE Championship & United States Title back at Night of Champions 2015.) I would like Ziggler/McIntyre hold onto these titles for a while and become very dominant with them.
WINNER: Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntrye retain!
|RAW Women’s Championship Match|
|Ronda Rousey (C)||vs||Alexa Bliss|
|PREDICTION: Well, if SummerSlam was anything to go by, then you know that Bliss’ arm is going to be broken again and this time, it ain’t going to be pretty. Ronda has become a way better UFC champ that Brock Lesnar has and I am really enjoying her run and this is the type of wrestler that we need in WWE today. Ronda to retain.
WINNER: Ronda retains!
|SmackDown Women’s Championship Match|
|Charlotte (C)||vs||Becky Lynch|
|PREDICTION: While the ‘concept’ of this feud has been good, the execution has been poor. You can make a babyface, a hell…Especially when you have Becky being the heel. She is getting cheered the hill and back and everyone is loving #GiveBeckyAChance and I stand by that statement. I honestly think that Charlotte (in kayfabe terms) has underestimated Becky and I hope it comes back to bite her. Becky to win the title.
WINNER: Becky Lynch becomes the NEW SmackDown Women’s Champion!
|WWE Championship Match|
|AJ Styles (C)||vs||Samoa Joe|
|PREDICTION: Oooohhh Wennddddyyy! This has been a very cool feud but it got very weird when Joe decided to start involving Styles wife, Wendy in his promos…Hope she was cool with that lol. Anyway, the way that I am thinking this match is a ‘David vs Goliath’ where Joe is just going to destroy Styles but I don’t believe that is going to capture the WWE Championship. Styles to retain.
WINNER: AJ Styles retains!
|Hell in a Cell Match for the Universal Championship
(w/ Special Guest Referee, Mick Foley)
|Roman Reigns (C)||vs||Braun Strowman|
|PREDICTION: uughh, I am not a fan of this. It’s the same that we had earlier this year where we know what is going to be happening here. Roman is going to get knocked around and smashed all to hell and then Roman does one spear, 1.2.3. Rinse and repeat. Mick Foley is a weird addition to be honest, but I suppose he is just there to spice things up for the crowds (given that it has been 20 years since he jumped off Hell in a Cell). Roman to retain.
WINNER: No Contest!
And that is my predictions for Hell in a Cell 2018! It should be a fun WWE and I cannot wait to view it. I don’t know yet if I will be liveblogging it, but check out @Wressling_ for updates.
