HIAC Preview

Hello, ladies and gentleman (and most importantly, the Eyes On The Ring readers). Nathan here, once again, to bring you your monthly dose of WWE Pay Per View predictions. This time, we’re talking this Sunday’s WWE Hell In A Cell PPV. This, of course, will take place live on the WWE Network. As always, I am joined by Jon. So, let’s get to it, shall we?

Nikki Bella vs. Brie Bella

Loser has to become the winners servant
Jon: I wish this feud would end soon. Unfortunately, it will be drug out for at least another 30 days due to the stipulation of the match; the loser of this match becomes the personal assistant of the victor. Since I have to choose a winner I shall go with Nikki.
Nathan: This feud is cringeworthy, it’s spawned some of the worst television segments I have ever seen on RAW. And, because of that, it’s a leading candidate for the “Worst Storyline of the Year” award if not the “Worst Storyline in Wrestling History” award (there have been worse, but this is pretty bad).
Seriously, this storyline is so bad that I wish it would receive a Slammy award in December for its terribleness. Furthermore I wish someone from WWE Creative would apoligize to me for putting it on my TV. I really hope that this match will be the last of this feud. But, given the recent stipulation to the match? I fear that it won’t be. We’ll probably have to sit through more of this garbage. In the predictions I sent to a few people, I said that Brie was going to win. But, I have a feeling now that given the stipulation Nikki will win and Brie will become Nikki’s slave (due to the psychology of how these types of things work out). Part of me wishes this match was a Hell In A Cell match.
Why, you ask? So Brie and Nikki both get decapitated via the cage and I never have to see them or hear one of their awful promos ever again.
Antonio Cesaro vs. Dolph Ziggler {C}
2 out of 3 Falls match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Jon: This should be an exciting match between two skilled individuals. Ziggler has lost a lot on Raw and Smackdown lately but I think he redeems himself and retains.
Nathan: I am really looking forward to this match. The inclusion of the two out of three falls stipulation means that the match will be potentially longer than if it were just a one fall to a finish match. I feel these two will get at least ten to fifteen minutes (I hope) to tell a proper story. This match could potentially be a big talking point from this event. I’m also hoping that Cesaro will become the new Intercontinental Champion with a win here--and become the star that we all know that he is capable of being.
Paige vs. AJ Lee {C}
WWE Diva’s Championship Match
Jon: Once again I'm not invested in this rivalry. I’m picking AJ Lee to retain her Divas title once again.
Nathan: This is a feud that, before it happened, I looked forward to seeing how AJ and Paige would work with one another. That was in May. In October, however, I just don’t care about this storyline. WWE has a way of doing something once, and have it go over really well. So, the creative minds decide to do it a thousand more times (which will be a theme to this PPV. Hi, Cena vs. Orton). That’s exactly the case here.  
These two women have wrestled each other way too much. With each match they wrestle, I care less and less. I’m hoping that this match will be the last we see of these two and their stupid “Frenimies” storyline can end. The winner of this match will be AJ Lee. Hopefully, she’ll go on to feud with someone new like Alicia Fox or who knows? Just do something else please (except the Bellas, of course).
The Miz vs. Sheamus {C}
WWE United States Championship Match
Jon: The Miz has 3 victories of the United States champion Sheamus--thanks to help from his stunt double Damien Mizdow. If there was a way for Mizdow to get the victory that would be great and an unexpected twist. Since Mizdow isn’t eligible for the win, I choose the Irishman Sheamus to win and retain.
Nathan: This is another match I really don’t care about all that much. I’ve never been a fan of the Miz and Sheamus, while a great wrestler, he’s not doing anything effective.  The United States Title is often forgettable (I had to visit wwe.com to remember who the champion was. That should tell you something). And, this match will probably add to that long list of forgetful United States Championship matches.  
Yeah, there have been some good ones sprinkled in here and there (see Sheamus vs. Cesaro). But, besides that? Nothing recently really comes to mind as memorable. I expect Sheamus to pick up the win and continue on with his title reign. The only way I could see the title changing hands is if Damien Mizdow somehow changes places with the Miz and picks up the win and wins the title in the process. Something tells me that is what will happen and I am hoping I am right. That way, we can get Damien SANDOW back (sans Miz) and he can do his thing because he’s being underutilized.
The Usos vs. Goldust and Stardust {C}
WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Jon: I enjoy these to two teams; they play off each other well in promos and have great chemistry in the ring. They have put on outstanding matches each time they have faced each other.  Stardust and Goldust have taken the word “crazy” to a whole new level since they won the cosmic keys aka the tag titles. Because of this, they will also retain as champs.
Nathan: I really enjoy the Usos but I am not real high on Stardust and Goldust. Quite frankly, I’m sick of Stardust.  I’ve never been a fan of over-the-top gimmicks in wrestling and Stardust is just way too bizarre for my tastes. It’s doing Cody Rhodes a huge injustice by being stuck in the role that he is in. There is no need for a title change in this match, because the Stardust and Goldust just won them.  So I will go with Stardust and Goldust. Although, in a perfect world, Stardust would turn on Goldust and cost them the titles so the Usos could win the titles back. But, I just don’t see that happening right now.  So your winners and still Tag Team Champions Stardust and Goldust (unfortunately).
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
Hell In A Cell match
Jon: The match that should be the true main event (refer to our last article for reasons why) They hate each other. How far things have come from Believing in The Shield to wanting to beat the snot out of each other. Hell in a Cell gives the advantage to a crazy man like Ambrose; however Rollins ends the night on top just like he did on last week’s Raw.
Nathan: This is the match that I have been waiting for for months and they have lead up to it perfectly (except for the angle on this past Monday’s RAW which did neither man any favors in my opinion). It sucks that we wont get this as the main event. But, given WWE’s recent track record, we as fans should just be happy that the company is giving us the match at all, since they don’t always do whats “Best for Business.”
This is the match I am looking forward to the most on this show. I feel it’ll deliver whether it’s the first match on the show or the last match of the night.  This is a perfect match where I would hope for some blood. But given WWE’s stance on blood over the past years, if I don’t get it, I won’t be too disappointed. Blood or not, this match should be fantastic.
I’m hoping for Rollins to get the win here as he’s my favorite wrestler of the two. If Brock Lesnar was around and wrestling, I would say that Rollins would probably lose to Ambrose and then go on later in the night to cash in on Brock and pick up the title. But Brock and the title are nowhere to be found, that probably won’t happen. Rollins will be your winner and Dean will be left picking up the pieces or so I hope.
Rusev vs. The Big Show
Jon: Rusev wins. I don’t see the need for Big Show to win.  Show has power and a great KO punch but he will not beat the Bulgarian Brute. Plus, how could you lose with the Ravishing Russian Lana on your side?
Nathan: I’m a bit torn on this match and the outcome do I think it will be a good match?  Yes, but I’m not sure how this one is going to go. For predictions sake I am going with Rusev. But I could easily see Big show picking up the win due to WWE getting cold feet over this entire storyline (especially given what occurred on Monday’s RAW).  Either way, this should be a good match and I am looking forward to seeing how this match plays out given the current situation. So again I have a feeling Rusev will win like always via the Accolade. But it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Big show were to win here although I think we all know the end game for this entire Rusev thing but I will complain about that when we get to it and if it actually happens.
Randy Orton vs. John Cena
Hell In A Cell Match
Jon:  Everyone is tired of this match up, it has that “been there, done that” feel to it. John Cena wins and gets his chance to face Brock Lesnar once again. Sorry, Randy. You may be Triple H’s face of the company but Cena is Vince’s choice. Plus I think Orton vs Rollins at TLC will be a much more interesting match to see.
Nathan: 2009 called, they want their match back. Yes, ladies and gentleman, we have seen this match before--back at this very pay per view five years ago. I could care less about this match. For one, we have seen Orton take on Cena a thousand times before. And now, they are wrestling for the second time inside of the Hell in a Cell structure.  I hope at least that this match is better than their 2009 encounter and that they actually USE THE CELL this time around (If you go back and watch their match from 2009, they did not use the cell AT ALL). It was just a normal one on one match that just so happened to take place inside of a steel cage; there was nothing special about it.  
The only difference that this match will have is the stipulation (not the hell in a cell stipulation) of whoever wins this match will be the next in line to face the current WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar. Had this been a normal Hell In A Cell match without that stipulation we might see Cena win. But, since that caveat was added, I only hope that Orton wins this match.  That way we will get a match between Orton and Lesnar which has never happened before.  
I have a strange fear that we will get Cena and Lesnar once again. But, I hope and pray that Orton wins this one because he needs to for my sanity.
Well ladies and gentleman, that will do it for Jon and myself and our preview of this Sunday’s Hell In A Cell pay per view.  I look forward to seeing how both Jon and I did on our predictions come Sunday when the show goes live on the WWE Network.  Until this Sunday, wrestling fans.
