WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 match card, rumors

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 main event this year.

We think.

You see, we're now four weeks out from showtime and it's unclear what WWE has planned for this event. Both the main event scene and the undercard is murky as can be.

So let's look at the direction it appears the top players have been going in lieu of any concrete information from WWE just yet. We will include rumors but state them as such.

- Brock Lesnar

Still the WWE world heavyweight champion, Lesnar is currently off TV with no signs of returning anytime soon. There were rumors that a feud with Big Show was in the pipeline but it appears that may not be happening after all.

- John Cena

Lost to Lesnar at Night of Champions thanks to interference from Seth Rollins. He has since shifted his focus from the title to getting payback for as much. In turn, he's still up against The Authority.

- Dean Ambrose

He returned at Night of Champions to attack Seth Rollins, seemingly continuing their feud. He's also running up against The Authority, even doing so alongside Cena, albeit begrudgingly. He recently stole the Money in the Bank briefcase.

- Seth Rollins

Mr. Money in the Bank has pissed everyone off and is currently embroiled in an issue with both Cena and Ambrose.

- Randy Orton & Kane

Both members of The Authority who are somewhere in the mix with all the Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, John Cena mess.

- Dolph Ziggler

The current Intercontinental champion, he dropped the strap to The Miz at Night of Champions before winning it back the next night on Raw and successfully defending it against Cesaro on SmackDown. The finish in that match made it appear as though they'll have at least one return bout.

- Sheamus

The current U.S. champion, he worked in a six-man tag on Raw before missing the SmackDown taping completely following a successful title defense against Cesaro at Night of Champions. There is no clear direction here.

- Stardust & Goldust

The tag team champions won the titles by defeating The Usos at Night of Champions then losing the rematch by disqualification to keep them. These teams could continue going at it but fresh challengers could make themselves appear in the form of The Ascension getting a long rumored call-up from NXT.

- AJ Lee

The Divas champion is still feuding with Paige over the Divas championship. It appeared as though there would be more Bella involvement but that looks to have faded out.

- Bella twins

Nikki and Brie are on a collision course.

- Mark Henry and Big Show

The sometimes tag team has been pumping each other up for matches against Rusev and coming up short every time. Henry, for his part, teased a heel turn and it would make sense to pair the two off on the basis of that, though that's just speculation at the moment.

- Rusev

Speaking of Rusev, he's been doing his usual handling of nearly everyone he comes across, though he did end SmackDown laid out after a KO punch from Big Show in a surprisingly hot angle. WWE may try to run with that if it got over as big backstage as it did live in the arena and on television.

That's where we are right now, Cagesider. It feels an awful lot like we're not anywhere at all, doesn't it?
