Preview for Tomorrow Night's Hell in a Cell PPV


Tomorrow night WWE presents its first Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View, which will feature three matches in the Hell in a Cell cage.  It's certainly an interesting way to showcase a specialty match that has always done well for WWE, but smacks a bit of TNA's annual Lockdown event, which is a PPV with all of the matches inside a cage.  Here's a rundown of what is scheduled to be on tomorrow night's show.

Intercontinental Championship: John Morrison (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

It was looking like Ziggler was being groomed for the title in his feud with Rey Mysterio before Mysterio was suspended for violating the company's wellness program.  Ziggler has looked great lately, and Morrison is amazingly bland as a good guy, but if I had to guess, I'd say Morrison retains here.

Unified Tag Team Championship: Chris Jericho and The Big Show (c) vs. Batista and Rey Mysterio

WWE has done everything right since putting the unified tag titles on Jericho and Big Show, and I'd like to see them retain here, if for no other reason than it will keep Batista busy chasing the titles.  This could go either way, but with four legitimate main-event wrestlers all involved in the tag title picture, it only makes the belts seem more important, and that's a good thing.

United States Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. The Miz vs. Jack Swagger

They've had an odd feud between these three that has centered around Miz and Swagger both attempting to steal Kingston's title belt rather than win it outright, which seems odd to say the least.  I am pulling for Swagger to win, because he's awesome.  Well, so is The Miz, but I'm still upset they gave him boring ring gear.

Divas Championship: Mickie James (c) vs. Alicia Fox

Mickie will probably win.

Hell in a Cell: D-Generation X (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) vs. Legacy (Ted Dibiase & Cody Rhodes)

Legacy really needs a big win here for anyone to take them seriously at any point.  Soooooooo...I'm guessing they don't win.

Hell in a Cell for the WWE Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Randy Orton

These two had a great match last month at Breaking Point, and this should be the final match between the two for a while (God willing).  Cena will likely retain.

Hell in a Cell for the World Heavyweight Championship: CM Punk (c) vs. The Undertaker

This stands to be the best match on the PPV.  Undertaker always turns it on for Hell in a Cell matches, and they're his specialty.  This is the big seller and the justified main event.  Punk's title reign ends here.

My one request is that WWE rescinds their "no blood" sanction for this PPV.  Three Hell in a Cell matches with no blood would be staggeringly underwhelming.
