WWE Championship Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match
John Cena vs. CM Punk vs. Alberto Del Rio
It feels hard to pick anyone else besides Cena for the win in this match, especially with the big plans for Survivor Series with his Wrestlemania opponent the Rock. Yet WWE has been on ‘swerve mode’ for last few months, refusing to go with the absolutely obvious conclusion. This was the case with the main events at Summerslam and Night of Champions. Del Rio had much needed boost this past week on RAW, when he laid out Cena and Punk with the Hell in a Cell hanging above. The closing segment to RAW saw Del Rio racked a steel chair over Punk and Cena, reminding fans that anything goes inside the Cell. Del Rio was mocked by both Cena and Punk, yet this segment showed he is still a threat. Punk who was wronged at Summerslam and Night of Champions, seems to be the least likely to win WWE Championship here even though he has a ton of momentum at the moment.
WWE Divas Championship
Kelly Kelly w/ Eve vs. Beth Pheonix w/ Natalya
This fued has gone from being a fresh breath for the slumping WWE Divas, pitting the beaties of WWE Diva Champion Kelly Kelly and Eve against the Divas of Doom, Beth Pheonix and Natalya. This week’s RAW tag match showed all four ladies are still gung ho for this battle, but the audience seems to be losing interest. So with this being the third PPV match between Pheonix and Kelly for the Butterfly belt, how does WWE keep it interesting? The Glamazon lives the Big Easy as the new WWE Divas Champion.
Sheamus vs. Christian
The two future World title contenders had a brief segment earlier this month on the Night of Champions PPV, which finished with Sheamus laying out Christian. The beef with these two is all about each man thinking they are worthy of stepping up to contend for the World Heavyweight Championship. The match physically will see a bunch of back and forth, but this Examiner has a sneaking thought that Captain Charisma will cheat in the end to get the ‘W’. If the Hell in the Cell matches on the card are hindered by the “PG” ratings, this match could steal the show with these two fantastic wrestlers.
World Heavyweight Championship
Marc Henry vs. Randy Orton
Marc Henry has been on the best roll of his 15 years in WWE. He’s proven his critics and haters wrong, putting wrestlers in his “Hall of Pain”, and conquered Randy Orton with a clean World Championship at Night of Champions. WWE has done a solid job of making Henry out to be the real monster he can be.The World’s Strongest Man can do some crazy feats of strength with the Cell, like ripping the whole thing apart with his bare hands. With the unforgiving Cell cage at Henry’s disposal this Sunday, how can Randy Orton survive to regain the Championship? This Examiner predicts Henry walks out of the Cell with the World title, but not without Orton giving him hell.
