SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)…
So it’s possible, even likely, that I’m going to get all of these wrong.
Follow @Colohue for updates.
At the time of typing, there were only four matches announced for the Hell In A Cell card. I can’t believe that’s how it’s going to end up but it’s all I’ve got to go on so buckle up for the shortest Tom Gets It Wrong in history!
1. Bayley vs. Charlotte (Smackdown Women’s Championship)
I predict that there will be a preshow, and this won’t be on it. What’s on the preshow, no idea.
Bayley vs. Charlotte is a feud that’s just sort of continued to exist. The match hasn’t been built up and neither has the feud, really. It’s just sort of there. Charlotte had the best of it on Smackdown but, as with a lot of what I’m going to say here, we have no idea who of these women is even going to be on SmackDown in future so a prediction is almost impossible.
Also, is Charlotte a face or a heel? Who even knows anymore. I’m just going to pick Charlotte. It’s Charlotte, isn’t it?
What If?: No more matches get added and Bayley and Charlotte have to wrestle for an hour?
2. Roman Reigns & Daniel Bryan vs Erick Rowan & Luke Harper
At the very least, every match that is on the card should be a good one.
Much like the previous match I have to ask; if Daniel Bryan a good guy or a bad guy? At which point did he become our hero again? Does he still think we’re fickle. Probably. Probably more so now to be fair. Is Erick Rowan secretly the hero all along and he’s trying to get revenge on Roman for that one time Roman crashed an ambulance with Braun Strowman in the back?
Nah, if there’s one thing we can be certain of it’s that Roman Reigns is definitely the good guy.
These men all have a lot of history and know each other very well, though that’s not been mentioned much in the build. This should be wild, even though it screams “rushed storyline” given how quickly Bryan is suddenly on Roman’s side.
Erick Rowan recently had a big win over Roman and despite Roman getting his heat back in Friday’s Lumberjack match, the first in ring action for Luke Harper in a long time should hopefully result in a win for the Bludgeons.
Winner: Bludgeon Brothers
What If?: We are building to a reuniting of The Wyatt Family, but with extra Fiend?
3. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks (Raw Women’s Championship Hell In A Cell)
Sasha Banks came back hot and, to be honest, she hasn’t done too much with that heat recently. This needs to be the beginning of a white hot championship run. Not only that but with SmackDown on Fox opening with Becky Lynch, it doesn’t look like Lynch is going to be on Raw for much longer.
I know there are only four matches so I’m supposed to be padding this out as much as possible but this genuinely doesn’t seem like there’s much to talk about.
Winner: Sasha Banks
What If?: Becky Lynch retains and then moves to SmackDown anyway, forcing to belt to be relinquished?
4. Seth Rollins vs The Fiend Bray Wyatt (Universal Championship Hell In A Cell)
Well, there’s no padding this one. There’s only one way this is going to go.
Winner: The Fiend Bray Wyatt
What If?: No, no. It’s The Fiend.
I’ll see you for a live tweeting session of Hell In A Cell 2019.
