15) Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan – WWE Championship Match, WWE Hell in a Cell 2013

Bryan defeated John Cena for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam 2013. However, he would get betrayed by Triple H, who assisted Orton in cashing in his Money in the Bank. Bryan and Orton then faced off for the title at Night of Champions. The title was vacated, though, after Bryan won on a fast count in his previous encounter with Orton.

Then at Battleground, Big Show came in and punched both Orton and Bryan to make this match end in a no contest. A match would then be created for Hell in a Cell soon after. 

Shawn Michaels was also interested into this match as the special guest referee by COO Triple H.

This bout rates as a decent Hell in a Cell match. It featured a lot of interference from Triple H, who made Orton his chosen one in The Authority like he was in Evolution. HBK even hit Sweet Chin Music on Bryan after getting inadvertently shoved. This would lead to Orton getting the win to become the WWE Champion once again.
