2018 WWE Hell in a Cell matches
WWE Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Braun Strowman (Hell in a Cell Match): Mick Foley special guest referee
As we’ll see, a lot of the matches on this card are pretty hamstrung by the upcoming PPVs, meaning HIAC has the potential to be completely forgettable and pointless, HOWEVER, this one isn’t as The Shield lads are signed up to take on Brauny, Dolphy and err, Drewy at the MCC. That said, can’t see anything other than a Reigns win, cool as it would be if Braun just destroys the fucker. Dunno what Foley adds to this.
WWE Championship – AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe: - This match is happening again in Melbourne, so expect a bullshit finish.
SmackDown Women’s Championship – Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Becky Lynch: Lynch has been amazing since turning heel, but this is also happening in Melbourne (expect me to say this a lot) and probably Evolution too, so no way is anything getting decided here.
Raw Women’s Championship – Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Alexa Bliss: Rousey’s gonna steamroll Bliss again, confirmed by the fact that Bliss is already signed up to take on Trish Stratus at Evolution for some reason, rather than a Trish, Lita, Mickie James triple threat which would make much more sense to me, personally (the latter two are in a singles match already confirmed).
Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton (Hell in a Cell Match): Neither are currently booked for Melbourne, which suggests Jeff’s gonna do something insane in this match and then take some time off. Question, shouldn’t Shinsuke be defending the U.S title here?
Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse: This is fine, it will be a good bit of fun and is the only match actually enhanced by future booking, as D Bry and Miz’s match in Melbourne is for the #1 contender for the WWE championship, which given the four potential people involved, is mouthwatering however way you look at it. I assume that will happen at Survivor Series.
Raw Tag Team Championship – Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose: This should be good fun, can see The Shield winning so they can have ALL THE GOLD again for a bit.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship – New Day (c) vs. Rusev Day: Also should be great, there’s so much banter potential between these two, only shame is they’ve had no time to build that. Spoiler alert though, New Day wins and takes on Sheamo in Melbourne
Other general note; WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY DOING TO ASUKA?
