According to an Oct. 25 post from Bleacher Report, one of the greatest rivalries in WWE history comes to an end tonight at Hell in a Cell, when 15-time WWE Heavyweight Champion, John Cena, attempts to solidify his place as the top contender for a title shot with a match against Randy Orton. WWE Universe might be sick and tired of Cena versus Orton matches, but their collision at WWE Hell in a Cell has major title implications.
What adds some juice to the Cena vs. Orton collision is the fact that the WWE has already announced that the winner will earn a title shot against Brock Lesnar. Let’s be honest: At this point, not many fight fans want to see Cena engage in a singles match with Orton. It’s been done to death and WWE Universe is sick of it. They want a new and fresh angle to sink their teeth into, and Cena vs. Orton just doesn’t do it for them anymore.
However, the fact that their match will be held inside the Hell in a Cell structure makes it a must-watch. Cena and Orton are two of the most talented wrestlers to ever compete in the WWE, so it’s a safe bet that they’ll break out some funky moves this weekend at the pay-per-view in Dallas. Will their 10-year-old rivalry finally come to an end at Hell in a Cell?
Most WWE fans are hoping that is the case. Even though Orton and Cena are incredibly talented, fans want to see Cena feud with someone else. Here’s the thing: This is a match that needs to happen, since it sets both men up for future feuds. Cena is likely to advance to a feud with Lesnar, which could take the WWE all the way into Survivor Series and perhaps even Wrestlemania season.
It’s also rumored that Orton will make a babyface turn, and that could happen sometime during the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. If that should happen, there’s any number of ways the WWE could play it. Maybe Orton will turn face and then move on to a feud with Bray Wyatt, or another top heel character. The options are nearly endless. Elsewhere on the WWE Hell in a Cell card, Dean Ambrose collides with Seth Rollins in a fight expected to steal the show.
Technically, Ambrose versus Rollins is the co-main event, since the WWE is billing Hell in a Cell as a double main event pay-per-view. However, there’s no way Ambrose and Rollins play second fiddle to Cena vs. Orton. Both men want to turn in slick performances, to set themselves up as headliners on a future pay-per-view.
WWE Hell in a Cell, which also features a singles match between Brie and Nikki Bella, is set for Oct. 26 in Dallas. The card also features AJ Lee against Paige, in a singles match for the WWE Divas Championship. Sheamus is also set to appear in a title fight against The Miz.
