The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Hell in a Cell event set to take place on Sun., Oct. 26, 2014, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Although the theme of this one is to have nearly every match inside the Hell in a Cell structure, that's been scaled back to just the top two matches this year.
We're just one week out from showtime and here's what the card looks like right now:
- John Cena vs. Randy Orton (Hell in a Cell)
It is believed this will be the main event inasmuch as it will be the match that goes on last. They got here because Orton requested he work with the loser -- though they were very careful never to use that word -- of the Cena vs. Dean Ambrose Contract on a Pole match they did at Raw for the specific purpose of making sure to book the two big matches for this event.
- Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (Hell in a Cell)
Ambrose, as mentioned, won that Contract on a Pole match for the right to continue his blood feud with Rollins.
- Big Show vs. Rusev
The match was made after Show got the better of Rusev after multiple matches that he came short of actually winning, sometimes because of Mark Henry, who just lost big in a program opposite Rusev. There could be a Henry heel turn coming here.
- Sheamus vs. The Miz (United States championship)
With the help of Damien Mizdow, The Miz picked up two non-title wins over Sheamus. Naturally, that meant Miz had earned an actual title match.
- Brie vs. Nikki Bella (Loser must become the winner's personal assistant)
Or, as Nikki puts it, the loser must become the winner's "bitch" for the next 30 days. During SmackDown this past week, an additional stipulation was quietly added that if the loser does not agree to work the full 30 days as the winner's personal assistant that person will be fired.
That's the card as it stands right now, Cagesiders. Thoughts?
