While things are finally heating up for us folks here in the UK, the heat is growing to a boiling point for the Superstars of WWE as they prepare to enter WWE Hell in a Cell.
Over the last few years the Women of WWE have put on some historic matches at Hell in a Cell and tonight is bound to be no different as Bayley enters the demonic structure once again, this time with her sights set on Bianca Belair and the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Elsewhere the Women of RAW look to settle their differences as Rhea Ripley defends her RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair whilst Shayna Baszler looks to end the twisted antics of Alexa Bliss and her demon doll Lilly.
With titles and mind games all in play, who will walk out of WWE’s Hell in Cell PPV with their head held high? It’s time for our PPV Predictions:
Alexa Bliss Vs Shayna Baszler:
Elle: Things may have started to get a little stale with the Alexa Bliss and Lilly over the course of the last few months but I have to stay over the last few weeks I have been completely drawn back in thanks to the fued between Bliss and Baszler. I absolutely loved the over the top horror elements with Baszler being stalked backstage by Lilly and I really hope that this isn’t the last we have seen of the supernatural elements. Now WWE could easily go down the route of Bliss taking a loss like her former mentor Bray Wyatt seemed to be saddled with but I think this could be the first of some monumental wins for Twisted Bliss. A win of Baszler isn’t something that should come easy so seeing Alexa pick up the win would be something commendable if not worthy of leading into a title picture. I’m not expecting a 5 star match with this one but I am expecting to be entertained throughout by both Women, I personally can’t wait. Prediction: Alexa Bliss
Adam (TheInsanityInc): It’s been great to see Bliss back in action, and I for one have been enjoying the wacky, supernatural antics she and Lily have been getting up to. I expect to see more of the same in this match with Baszler getting spooked to say the least by the unexplained. It might not make for quite the outstanding grappling match, but it will be one heck of a sports entertainment display. Prediction: Alexa Bliss
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Bayley Vs Bianca Belair
Elle: I’m not going to lie I feel like I’ve lost a bit of interest in Bianca’s title run in recent weeks and regardless of the outcome tonight I hope we see Bianca snap back into the swagger she had during her WrestleMania feud/ post celebration just a few short weeks ago. Bianca was killing it with her work with Sasha, but over the last several weeks it’s like her momentum has took a downward spiral for me personally and I almost feel like Bayley is completely overshadowing Bianca. Don’t get me wrong I know for a fact Bianca will kill it in the ring tonight but I feel like we need to go back to showcasing just how much of a badass she really is. Regardless I know for a fact that Bianca and Bayley will put on a match to remember and I only hope that Bianca’s run goes on to bigger and better things. Prediction: Bianca Belair
Adam: The last clash ended with rather a sour note with the sudden roll-up with hair assit finish. I fully expect another great match which should be even better than the last this time. However, I think the result will once again see Bianca retain and perhaps put an end to the long running feud between the two. I have been loving the more insane, maniac side of Bayley that’s developed so hopefully she won’t be too removed from TV following this feud. Prediction: Bianca Belair
Raw Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair Vs Rhea Ripley
Elle: When this feud first started I initially didn’t want to rehash the Flair Vs Ripley saga but I have to say adding Nikki Cross into the mix has really put an interesting twist on the feud and it actually has me really excited for what comes next. The back and forth between Rhea and Charlotte trying to one up each other over Cross has created a whole new dynamic that resulted in a pretty awesome RAW this past Monday with the fan favourite brawl. While I am excited for what comes next in the feud, it’s no secret that Charlotte doesn’t need another title reign just yet and we could all do with seeing a fresh feud like Ripley and Cross leading into SummerSlam. Prediction: Rhea Ripley
Adam: The distraction of Nikki Cross picking up technical wins during this feud has been an interesting spark, but we’ll see if she plays any factor in the match. Otherwise, hopefully this will see Flair pushed out of the title conversation at long last and giving Ripley another legit victory to further push her stock after the wins over Asuka. Ripley needs something fresh to keep her established, The last thing Flair needs is yet another title victory to add to her already massive collection of reigns. Prediction: Rhea Ripley
