Evaluating WWE World Heavyweight Championship Contenders for Hell in a Cell

7 of 7


Final Thoughts

Building up a contender to Brock Lesnar, if he retains the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, will be a very tough task. It would take a nearly perfect performance from everyone on the booking staff, who have been far from perfect lately.

If Lesnar wins, I feel that the most likely options are Big Show or having no challenger for the belt. If John Cena wins, I can’t see him walking out of the arena with the belt. They will have Seth Rollins cash in his briefcase and fit Dean Ambrose into the equation one way or another. I should point out that Cena will become a contender if Rollins cashes in on him, but the odds of him winning the title again against Seth after a one month title reign would make zero sense.

Here’s a ranking of who I think will most likely challenge for the title from the options that we outlined:

  1. No Challenger
  2. Big Show
  3. Randy Orton
  4. Seth Rollins
  5. Rusev
