WWE’s Hell in a Cell will take place on Sunday, October 25. Here’s why you should watch.
Hell in a Cell is upon us again. The October PPV began back in 2009. There are only five matches announced for the card, but the three that are set for the Hell in a Cell structure are big name bouts that can carry any card on their own.
In all honesty, these are the five reasons you should watch:
3-in a cage
5- Jey Uso
Bonus: I Quit match
If that’s not reason enough, here are more reasons to watch Hell in a Cell.
Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso “I Quit” match
This feud has heated up in a hurry. It originally seemed like it would be a one off match before Reigns moved on to other opponents. The story has hit all the right spots as it’s quite personal. While you could argue that an “I Quit” match inside of a cage is unnecessary, it works with this story. This way, Reigns can force his cousin to say what he wants.
Reigns added a consequence: if Uso loses, he’s out of the family. Not only is he out, so is Jimmy, their wives, children, and their children.
Bayley vs. Sasha Banks
This match should main event the show. Bayley and Sasha carried WWE on their backs over the last few months and should be rewarded for it. The former tag team champions and best friends have a lot of anger and resentment built up. What better way to let it all out than inside of a cage? It’s the most appropriate way to let it all out. Although this match may be better suited for WrestleMania, a match inside of a cage is probably the next best thing.
Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre
We’ve seen this match is many formats, and now they are headed into the Cell. It should’ve been over with an Ambulance Match at Clash of Champions, but this time we get to see how they will cause damage to each other inside the Hell in a Cell. Like many feuds in WWE, it has worn out it’s welcome and become stale.
Elias vs. Jeff Hardy
This feud came over from SmackDown, stemming from the terrible storyline about Jeff Hardy’s past drinking issues. It was revived when Hardy was drafted to Monday Night RAW and had a match with AJ Styles and Seth Rollins. During the match, Elias returned and attacked Hardy. As payback, “The Charismatic Enigma” ruined his attacker’s concert and now they have a match this Sunday.
Otis vs. Miz
The Miz sued Otis for destruction of property, creating an unsafe work environment and emotional distress. The pair went to court in a segment called “Law & Otis”. Miz & Morrison represented themselves in a case presided over by JBL. Ron Simmons was the bailiff and Teddy Long was the stenographer. Various Superstars took the stand including Rey Mysterio and Asuka. Otis originally appeared to win his case until Miz paid off JBL at the last minute. Otis was sentenced to defend his Money in the Bank briefcase against Miz this Sunday.
As of Friday Night SmackDown going off the air, these are the only five matches announced. Tune into Hell in a Cell this Sunday at 7 PM ET. The kickoff show begins at 6 PM ET on the WWE Network.
