First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to all of the wrestling fan dads out there. Here’s to one hell of a night for all of you.
WWE Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre (Hell in a Cell)
This is McIntyre’s final chance at Lashley’s title. This is a great stipulation for these two, no matter the outcome, it is time for both men to move on to another feud. I foresee this as a build up for the next big fight at Summerslam, possibly with a returning Brock Lesnar. Pick: Bobby Lashley retains the title
SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley (Hell in a Cell)
It’s time for all of the mind games to come to an end. Bayley has done everything she can to get in the head of Bianca Belair. Bayley has made it known that she will use Bianca’s hair against her, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bianca uses this opportunity to debut a different hair style to throw Bayley off her game. Locking both women in a cell for this match is a great way to bring it to an end and showcase what each superstar can bring to the table. Similar to the McIntyre and Lashley story, it is time for these ladies to move onto their next feud. Pick: Bianca Belair retains the title
Raw Women’s Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
There is a theme going with this Hell in a Cell card. That theme being time to put old feuds to an end. Charlotte and Rhea’s feud is getting stale at no fault to the competitors. Having them constantly battle Nikki Cross in a beat the clock type match, just to not include here in this match didn’t make much sense. I don’t see them cooling the jets of Rhea just yet. She is due for new competition though. I think they should reignite her feud with Shayna Baszler going into Summerslam. Pick: Rhea Ripley retains the title
Alexa Bliss vs. Shayna Baszler
This match has had the weirdest build up to it. Having Shayna be spooked of a doll is really hurting her credibility of being a badass the way she came into WWE. Fans want to see the dominant Baszler back. The only good thing I see in this match is having Bliss compete again to have more talent to use going forward. I would like for this to be the match that snaps bliss out of this character. She is doing a good job with what she has, but there is clearly no direction for her. Pick: Shayna Baszler wins
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
Owens and Zayn have been going at it on and off since Owens debuted in NXT. While they occasionally reform their lengthy friendship, more often than not they’re on opposite sides of the ring. Another storyline that has run it’s course for the time being. It’s time to move them up to want to challenge Reigns for the Universal title. Give them someone fresh to feud with until it is time for a king of the ring tournament. Pick: Kevin Owens wins
Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins
Cesaro received a brief break from his issues with Rollins to challenge Roman Reigns for the universal title, but that didn’t even last to the end of Cesaro’s WrestleMania Backlash bout with Reigns. With this match being a rematch like the others, it doesn’t feel as stale as the rest. With the way that Rollins attacked Cesaro at Backlash, it is only right that Cesaro seeks revenge. Hopefully the win can put one of these 2 in the running for the Universal title, but only time will tell. Pick: Cesaro wins
I have Rollins vs. Cesaro and Belair vs. Bayley being the highlights of this PPV. These 4 will go all out to put a show on for us and when they do, they usually do not disappoint.
