On Sunday night, thousands of fans will converge upon the American Airlines Center in Dallas for the 2014 installment of WWE “Hell In A Cell.” The event will be broadcast live on pay per view and on the WWE Network, for the low price of $9.99. A double-main event headlines the card, with both parts featuring the namesake as a stipulation.
The first part of the double main event will see former SHIELD teammates collide, as Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will do battle inside the not-so-friendly confines of the Hell In A Cell structure. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen everything from these two. Everything escalated after Rollins curb stomped Ambrose’s face into concrete blocks several weeks ago. Since his return, Ambrose has made a point to be Rollins’ worst nightmare. At the “Hell In A Cell” pay per view, Ambrose has a golden opportunity to rid the WWE Universe of his former best friend. But “Mr. Money In The Bank” will almost be guaranteed to have a trick or two up his sleeve. Look for this to get violent and ugly in a hurry.
The second main event will see John Cena and Randy Orton do battle one more time inside the Cell. This time, more than just pride is on the line as the winner of this match will lock in a future shot at Brock Lesnar and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Cena has a lot to prove in this match. After suffering consecutive losses to Lesnar at SummerSlam and Night of Champions, a win over Orton could be the momentum he needs to finally dethrone a man that nearly ended his career shortly after his debut. For Orton, his self-appointed status of “the face of the WWE” will be put to the test against arguably the hardest working superstar in recent memory.
A family feud will come to a hault on Sunday night, as Brie and Nikki Bella will finally settle their score. After Nikki turned on her sister over the summer, she’s been waging a verbal war on Brie. But the ultimate insult will come after the conclusion of the match, as the loser will be forced to be the “assistant” to the winner for 30 days. Imagine the payback Brie could inflict on Nikki if she were to win this match. But think of the disaster that awaits her…if she doesn’t.
The WWE Tag Team Championships will be on the line in Dallas, as the team of Gold and Star Dust will defend the gold against former champions Jimmy and Jey Uso. The champions, who have been impressive in recent weeks, look to hold on to what they call “the cosmic key.” The Usos are bent on regaining the gold and getting back on track as tag team champions. This could easily be a highlight match, as these two teams have delivered some quality outings in recent weeks.
The WWE Divas Title will also be up for grabs, as AJ Lee goes one-on-one with former best friend Page. The young star Paige upset AJ the night after WrestleMania and walked away as Divas Champion. But AJ returned the favor several months later after taking a brief hiatus, and regained the gold. Since then, the two have been entrenched in a bitter catfight that has had no clear advantage. At Hell in A Cell, can AJ hang on to one thing keeping her from going off the deep end, or will a Paige pull off the upset and leave Dallas as champion?
Dolph Ziggler has been at war with Cesaro over the last several weeks and have delivered some incredible matches. On Sunday night, they’ll hit the ring for war one more time, this time in a 2 of 3 Falls match for Ziggler’s Intercontinental Championship. This could easily be the show stealing match NOT held inside a Hell In A Cell structure, as both men are more than capable of running away with the spotlight. Cesaro is as dangerous as any superstar in the locker room, and Ziggler is fully aware of this. So he’ll need to bring his A game if he intends on leaving with the gold intact.
Over the last month, The Big Show has been at full-blown war with the Russian superstar Rusev. It all started when Show came to the aid of his friend Mark Henry after repeated beatings at hands of Rusev. Show backed up Henry and found himself in the middle of an international incident. Just in the last two weeks, Show has ripped down the Russian flag and thrown it to the ground, only to have Rusev attack a soldier last week on “Raw.” That one incident lit a fire under Show that many haven’t seen in a long time. And that could be the one thing that he needs to finally put the knockout blow and a pin on Rusev, to shut him and Lana up for good. A defeat could mean any number of things, none of which can promise to be good in any form.
The Miz will be busy at Hell In A Cell, as his stunt double Damien Mizdow will be hosting a special edition of MizTV live on the WWE Kickoff Show, 30 minutes prior to the pay per view. Then on the actual card, he will step into the ring with Sheamus for the United States Championship. Can Miz deliver a Hollwood performance and leave with the gold, or will he fall victim to a Brogue Kick from the Celtic Warrior?
All of this goes down on Sunday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The special Kickoff Show starts at 6:30 P.M. Central, with the opening bell of the event set for 7:00 P.M. As noted earlier, you can watch the entire event on pay per view or on various devices via the WWE Network.
