Prelude to Hell.
Six nights before WWE Hell in a Cell, the 1117th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO. Before Dean Ambrose steps into Hell in a Cell to face Seth Rollins and John Cena faces Randy Orton in the same demonic structure at WWE Hell in a Cell, “The Lunatic Fringe” and the fifteen-time former World Champion would join forces to combat The Authority on RAW as, with the Hell in a Cell structure ominously hanging over the ring, John Cena & Dean Ambrose would face “The Viper” Randy Orton, “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins, & The Authority’s Director of Operations Kane in a 3-on-2 Handicap Street Fight! Will John Cena & Dean Ambrose prove to The Authority just how ruthless they can be or will the three-on-two advantage held by The Authority prove dire for Cena & Ambrose?
It was made clear on SmackDown this Friday night that Big Show has had enough of Rusev & Lana and their negative attitude towards America as “The World’s Largest Athlete” proclaimed that his back cannot be broken, as Rusev threatened to do, because it is “American made” and threatening to knock Rusev’s jaw right off of his face before ending Rusev’s undefeated streak. With Big Show clearly ready for his rematch against Rusev this Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell, what will go down between “The World’s Largest Athlete” and “The Hero of the Russian Federation” on RAW?
After earning a United States Title match against reigning champion Sheamus by dubious circumstances on last week’s RAW, The Miz will challenge Sheamus for the United States Championship at WWE Hell in a Cell, but with the self-proclaimed “A-Lister” always flanked by his stunt double, Damien Mizdow, the odds appear to be in favor of The Miz. Will Sheamus get his hands, or boots, on the “moneymaker” on RAW or will The Miz find a way to gain an early advantage over the United States Champion?
