In a pre-Halloween tradition, the Superstars of WWE would take a trip to hell as the sixth annual WWE Hell in a Cell came to you, live on the WWE Network and select pay-per-view providers, from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. For nearly five months, Dean Ambrose has been on a personal quest for revenge on his former “brother” Seth Rollins for Rollins’ betrayal and forced dissolution of The Shield back in June. Since then, “The Lunatic Fringe” has had to contend with every member of The Authority as they have done everything in their power to protect the supposed “future” of WWE, which has resulted in “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” successfully ducking Dean Ambrose on multiple occasions and even putting Ambrose on the shelf for a month after a Curb Stomp through a stack of cinder blocks. However, that will all come to a head inside WWE’s most demonic structure as “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins will find himself locked inside Hell in a Cell with “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose as the two former Shield members will go to war as both men will no doubt do their best to destroy the other.
While Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins will make their first trip inside Hell in a Cell, the other half of the double main event will feature two previous Hell in a Cell survivors and two rivals who are very familiar with each other. In a rivalry that has been ongoing for the better part of a decade, the rise to main event stardom for both John Cena and Randy Orton has taken very different routes with very similar results. Since his WWE debut in 2002, John Cena has employed his creed of “hustle, loyalty, and respect” to make the difficult and polarizing climb to the peak of WWE success, establishing a staggering fifteen reigns as World Champion and becoming the hardest-working and most well-known WWE Superstar of the modern era. Meanwhile, Randy Orton has used his status as a third-generation Superstar to rise through the ranks of WWE and cement his spot as a twelve-time former World Champion and one of the most vicious competitors in WWE. Now, five years after they first went to hell together, the two veterans would return as John Cena goes one-on-one with “The Viper” Randy Orton inside Hell in a Cell and whoever emerges from the Cell as the winner will get a future shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship!
After weeks of hearing Rusev & Lana run down the country he loves and even assault an American soldier this past Monday night on RAW, Big Show is one angry giant and after several inconclusive matches against Rusev, the emotional and intense rivalry would come to a head at WWE Hell in a Cell as “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show collides with the undefeated “Hero of the Russian Federation” Rusev.
In a match that has a high potential to steal the show, “The Show-Off” Dolph Ziggler would defend the prestigious Intercontinental Championship against “The Swiss Superman” Cesaro in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. The United States Championship would also be up for grabs as Sheamus defends the gold against the self-proclaimed “A-Lister” The Miz.
Also, after losing the WWE Tag Team Titles at Night of Champions, The Usos would be looking to regain the titles as the twin brothers would challenge Gold & Stardust for the WWE Tag Team Championship. In recent weeks, Paige and her new best friend Alicia Fox have targeted Paige’s supposed former friend AJ Lee and, at WWE Hell in a Cell, AJ Lee would defend the Divas Championship against Paige.
Ever since her sister, Nikki, betrayed her at SummerSlam, Brie Bella’s world has been turned upside down by the new attitude of her sister as Nikki has repeatedly blamed Brie for all the hardships in her life and this sibling rivalry would come to an interesting impasse at WWE Hell in a Cell as Brie Bella would go one-on-one with Nikki Bella with the stipulation that the loser of the match must serve as the winner’s personal assistant for 30 days and, if the losing Bella refuses, she will be forced to leave WWE!
