Hell in a Cell 2012 Preview

It’s time to take feuds that don’t belong in a Cell and lock them in a box in an attempt to make them seem more important.  Let’s get to it.We”ll start with the big one: Punk vs. Ryback.  This is an interesting one and a match I want to see for one reason: there are multiple options to who could win the match and that makes the match incredibly interesting.  I could see Punk or Ryback walking out with the title.  From what I’ve heard the house show matches have actually been decent which doesn’t surprise me given the guys in there.  At the end of the day I’m expecting Punk to retain but seeing Ryback take the title would be a nice surprise and something I’ve been calling for for months now.

 

The other world title match got a nice boost Friday (imagine that: the TV show before the PPV pushing a match) and I’m really not sure what to expect there either.  I’ll go with Sheamus to retain in a match that’s more entertaining than it has any right to be.

 

HELL NO to retain in another good match but I think the Scholars have a chance of taking the belts.  They’ll probably get the belts one day, but I’d rather see Sandow get a singles push.

 

I have a gut instinct that says Del Rio and while those are usually wrong, I’ll go with it.

 

Kofi to retain.

 

Kaitlyn gets the Divas Title.

 

Overall this has the potential to be a pretty good B show, but it’s not something I’m looking forward to aside from the main event.  The real main event that people are looking towards is Punk vs. Rock at the Rumble which I can’t see not happening, hopefully setting up a triple threat with Rock vs. Cena vs. Punk, which is what the story would seem to be building towards.  The show should be entertaining though, and that’s a step up for WWE after the disaster that was Raw.

    If you are talking about Mania, CM Punk should be NOWHERE NEAR Rock and Cena come Mania time.

    and why is that?

    Is it true what I’ve heard about the ratings being awful lately? Regardless, a Ryback win could provide a much needed boost of excitement to the most drawn out weekly show on television.

    Yeah they’ve been bad, but it seems to be more related to the three hours than any specific person.

    KB, if the triple threat at Mania does happen, who do you think should go over?

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Cena more than likely.

    My Picks are Ryback,Sheamus (Ziggler cashes in MITB),Randy Orton,Team Hell No,Kofi Kingston,and Eve. Ive also read Rey/Sin Cara vs PTP may be added.

    the triple threat at wrestlemania would be a fantastic match. It wouldn’t matter who wins. My personal opinion would be punk to finally give Cena some time off to come back in a few months better than ever

    as for hell in a cell tonight

    Ceasro,Team Hell No,Kofi Kingston,Orton,Sheamus,Punk
