WWE Hell in a Cell 2018: Match Card, Predictions, and Analysis
WWE Hell in a Cell 2018: Match Card, Predictions, and Analysis

WWE Hell in a Cell 2018 is going down tonight, September 16th, live on the WWE Network. We’ve got the announced match card, predictions, and our overall thoughts for you to check out below. Let us know what you think is going to happen during tonight’s show by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.





The New Day (c) vs. Rusev Day

Kickoff Show: SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship Match

 

Lately, it seems the (absolutely loaded) SmackDown Live tag team division can’t have a bad match, meaning tonight’s kickoff show is more than likely going to be must-see TV. The New Day will walk away with the SmackDown Live tag team titles in their possession, but Rusev Day push them to their limits and don’t go down easily.

Winner: The New Day


 


Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz and Maryse

 

In our opinion, The Miz and Daniel Bryan’s feud is far from over; therefore, it’s not time for the hero to overcome the villain just yet. Bryan will finally get his just due one day, but for tonight, Miz and Maryse walk away victorious.

Winner: The Miz and Maryse 


 


Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose

Raw Tag Team Championship Match

 

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, along with Roman Reigns, are kind of running Monday Night Raw since Ambrose’s return last month, which has been fun to watch. Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, along with the rest of the heel locker room, are The Shield’s main foes at the moment, but they’re just not enough to slow down The Hounds of Justice.

Ambrose and Rollins get the W, capturing the Raw Tag Team Championship titles in the process.

Winner: Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose 


 

Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Becky Lynch

SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match

 

This match is one of many on this card that could take place inside the Hell in a Cell structure but isn’t, for whatever reason. In fact, this match, like every other non-Hell in a Cell match on the card, doesn’t even have a stipulation attached to it, which we can only assume means that the feud isn’t close to being over.

Because of this, Charlotte Flair defeats Becky Lynch but cheats to do so, turning the heat on Flair and away from Lynch, who isn’t going to get booed by a WWE crowd anytime soon.

Winner: Charlotte Flair 


 

Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Alexa Bliss

Raw Women’s Championship Match

 

For the sake of time, this show is going to need a match or two to end quickly, and this one seems like the most likely candidate. Ronda Rousey has already steamed Alexa Bliss in less than five minutes in the past, so don’t be surprised to see the same thing happen again tonight.

Winner: Ronda Rousey 


 

Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton

Hell in a Cell Match

 

Our only prediction for this match is that Jeff Hardy is going to do something crazy, like a Swanton Bomb from atop the Hell in a Cell, yet somehow manage to walk away afterward because he is the most indestructible human being on the face of the Earth.

Winner: Randy Orton 


 

AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe

WWE Championship Match

 

The Samoa Joe//AJ Styles feud has been extremely heated, and even more personal, so it’s a tad bit surprising that this match doesn’t have a stipulation attached to it. Perhaps it’s because these two aren’t going to be finished with one another after tonight. If that’s the case, and we believe it is, then expect to see Styles capture the win with the Phenomenal Forearm.

Winner: AJ Styles


 

Roman Reigns (c) vs. Braun Strowman

Hell in a Cell Match for the Universal Championship

 

Braun Strowman cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase for this Universal Championship match with Roman Reigns inside Hell in a Cell. To make things even more intense, Mick Foley, who is synonymous with the Hell in a Cell match, is going to be the special guest referee.

Reigns and Strowman work well together, and the Hell in a Cell structure is going to give them a ton of freedom, so our expectations are quite high. Reigns wins via pinfall following not one, but three spears, meaning Strowman doesn’t go down without a fight.

Winner: Roman Reigns
