Triple Z predicts Hell in a Cell and talks about how the brand split PPV's are becoming overkill to the product.
The "Triple Main Event" and The Baffling, below-average Brand Split PPV schedule.
WWE is promoting Hell in a Cell as a "Triple Main Event", and why are they doing this? So they don't receive backlash if Sasha and Charlotte don't go on last. Three Hell in a Cell matches is good. If your going to name a PPV based off of a match then you better have a lot of those type of matches at the event. Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens has been the main event feud on RAW. Sasha Banks and Charlotte's feud has been stale. WWE fans begging for "women's wrestling" and now were getting it. If WWE really was creative they would've waited until WWE TLC to do a special match with the Women. I will be optimistic about Charlotte/Banks but it's a long shot at being historic. Why was Bayley/Banks at Brooklyn historic? The reasoning is because the match was unexpectedly good. Also the feud was phenomenal at the time. There was no pressure from the audience for those two to have a good match. Then they went out and shocked the world. This match has different circumstances. Everybody is expecting this to be jaw-dropping amazing. I'll cover Sasha/Charlotte later on but maybe WWE is overexposing the product?
WWE doing a PPV event once every two weeks is crazy. If your a wrestling fan that doesn't have anything else going on then "It's absolutely great!" Although the product seems rushed and the pay-per-views seem watered down. WWE is starting to not care about the story of it all. WWE is more concerned with content. WWE's PPV schedule has been hard to follow. Maybe WWE turns it around for the "Road to WrestleMania", or do they continue on this overexposed path?
Kickoff: Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, and Sin Cara VS Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari
How in the world did WWE screw up a Cruiserweight division? Did WWE screw it up or did the IWC turn on the idea? WWE promised a new division with fresh faces. We got that, but what happened to the Cruiserweights that were going to be on RAW? Like Noam Dar, Jack Gallagher, and Gran Metalik? What happened to these guys that were advertised. How did enhancement talents like Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, and Ariya Daivari land spots in this division? Nothing against their talent but why didn't WWE advertise THEM from the beginning. The fans got behind Tony Nese pretty quick due to his excellent in-ring work. WWE's handling of the Cruiserweights has been weird. WWE should've just kept them all in NXT. NXT, a safe place where talent is appreciated. This match should go to Alexander, Dorado, and Sin Cara.
Winners: Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, and Sin Cara
Bayley VS Dana Brooke
This should be a normal match-up. Obviously a win for Bayley. I'm expecting this match to be very fast.
Enzo Amore and Big Cass VS Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
WWE utilizing two popular teams for one epic match. Gallows and Anderson are doing just fine in the WWE. Fans that think otherwise are nuts. The New Day is to good to stop now (I'll talk about that more later). WWE is slowly building up Enzo and Cass. The short term goal is to have Gallows and Anderson win. Once they start winning consistently they will become the top heels. Enzo and Cass are already the number two baby faces. This should be a contest that goes back and forth resulting in Gallows and Anderson winning.
Winner: Gallows and Anderson
The New Day VS Cesaro and Sheamus
The New Day is one of the best things going on in WWE right now. Why ruin that? Especially with a horrible. mismatch team known as Sheamus and Cesaro. GM Mick Foley made Sheamus and Cesaro fight seven times which resulted in nothing. Then Mick Foley forces them to be a team. Brilliant? Not at all... RAW is wasting Cesaro's talent with him being put into this tag team. Creative is out of touch if they think this is good idea. Mick Foley has done a horrible job as General Manager. He's unfit to be General Manager. It's not believable and he doesn't help out the New Era at all. We all know Stephanie McMahon is the one calling the shots for RAW. Stephanie needs a General Manager that fits with her. I wouldn't mind revisiting the concept of having a Women running RAW. Similar to the AJ Lee as General Manager run. Hopefully WWE gets rid of Foley soon and Creative stops with the zany ideas. The New Day needs to continue their record breaking title run.
Winners: The New Day
TJ Perkins VS Brian Kendrick
This should be a fantastic match and their feud has been alright. Perkins is the face of the division. He needs to continue his reign. WWE enjoy Brian Kendrick's "Cinderella Comeback" story. So this could go either way. WWE needs to start negotiating hard with other Cruiserweights like Zack Sabre Jr., Kota Ibushi, and Ricochet. The division needs more legitimate players. WWE introduced the division without any legitimate players. Everyone in the division has the talent to be legitimate players they were just not introduced that way. Perkins and Kendrick might go another round after this. WWE is high on TJ Perkins so why wouldn't he win this Sunday?
Winner: TJ Perkins
Rusev VS Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns has improved over these last couple of months. His feud with Rusev has definitely helped. WWE isn't forcing Roman on us. That's a good thing for everyone involved. Reigns being in the mid-card and holding the U.S title will only make him more legitimate. Reigns and Rusev are going to brawl inside the cell. This could be the best "Cell" match of the night. These two could be the most hardcore inside the cell. I expect Reigns to beat Rusev in a hard fought contest.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens
Many fans are critical of this feud. I don't understand why because these two are great. Also adding in Chris Jericho into the mix adds a element of comedy to the feud. I expect Jericho to get involved in this matchup. I could also see him being added into the mix. Kevin Owens will win with the help of Chris Jericho. Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens will have a fantastic match. Maybe Triple H gets involved with this match? This feud has to go somewhere for Seth Rollins. Kevin Owens could possibly be in a feud with Chris Jericho after Sunday. WWE has many creative options for this match. The outcome will be Owens holding the red belt.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Sasha Banks VS Charlotte
All eyes are on this match. WWE's Women Revolution is going to make a huge statement. Can Charlotte and Sasha Banks survive Hell in a Cell? Can they have a good match inside Hell in a Cell? Sasha Banks and Charlotte had a horrendous match at SummerSlam. This feud has done nothing to impose a Hell in a Cell match. Either way whiny WWE marks are going to complain about this. "It wasn't the real main event" or "They didn't get enough time!", and that will just be the first part of the storm. This match is either going to be a hot mess or it's going to go down as history. Either way WWE will play this up. The Women wrestlers would flourish in a TLC match. That's the next step in the process of WWE's Women Revolution. WWE needs Sasha Banks and Charlotte's feud to end soon. This is the perfect ending spot. Sasha Banks wins in a grueling match with Charlotte. The whole match will be interesting to watch.
Winner: Sasha Banks
