WWE’s latest pay-per-view is scheduled to air live on 25th October, 2020 from WWE’s Thunderdome. The show will air live on 26th Oct 4:30 am IST. This is the 12th edition of the PPV. The matches for the PPV were being announced as late as Friday. The latest addition was the Miz vs. Otis match, where the winner gets the Money in the Bank briefcase. Here are our predictions for Hell in a Cell 2020:
Jeff Hardy vs. Elias
The feud began when Elias was hit by a car prior to a Smackdown episode. While Hardy’s name has been cleared. Elias still feels that it was Hardy who hit him. He recently returned to Raw, to attack Hardy and demand an apology. Hardy refused and attacked him the next week, leading to this match. Considering Hardy’s recent form he is unlikely to win. His last couple of matches had him lose the Intercontinental Championship to Sami Zayn and also a loss to Lars Sullivan. Elias, on the other hand is fresh from a break and is also gearing up for music album release, a day after the PPV.
Prediction: Elias for the win.
Otis vs. The Miz – for MITB briefcase
This rivalry has given some really funny segments to WWE. Arguably, the best one being Law and Otis segment. It was a courtroom drama, with JBL, Ron Simmons and Teddy Long making appearances. It also had cameos from Rey Mysterio and Asuka. This segment led to this match. The winner of this match gets the Money in the Bank briefcase. Now we really want Miz to get a shot at the Championship. But considering the momentum Otis is having, Miz’s win is unlikely.
Prediction: Otis retains the briefcase.
Bayley vs. Sasha Banks – WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship
The former friends will be fighting it out inside the steel cage. Bayley turned on Banks, after they failed to retain their Tag Team titles. This feud has attacked multiple ruthless chair attacks. While Banks has prior experience of the hell, but this is Bayley’s first time inside the structure. Her prior experience might give her an edge over the current Champion.
Prediction: New Champion, Sasha Banks.
Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton – WWE Championship
Both these wrestlers have been on fire all year. While McIntyre as a Champion, Orton as the Legend Killer. They too will be facing each other inside the Hell. Orton has experience of fighting inside the structure. But this is McIntyre’s first time inside the structure. These two have already fought at two PPV’s this year, where McIntyre won on both the occasions. It seems like it will be third-time lucky for the Apex Predator. Orton could become a 14 time World Champion
Prediction: New Champion, Randy Orton.
Roman Reigns vs Jey Uso – WWE Universal Championship
This is an “I Quit” match inside the steel cage. This is one of the best rivalry that has been seen at WWE, because it isn’t just about the Championship. It has had much more interesting layers. Roman turning heel, the family angle, the consequences of the match, have all added to the drama in this story. The only way we can see this match playing out, is complete domination from Reigns.
Prediction: Roman Reigns retains Universal Championship.
