Hell in a Cell 2017 predictions

@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents on Twitter

I've talked before about not being a big fan of the Hell in a Cell as a pay per view event. I love the match and in my 1-2-3 cents, it's a time to settle a score. Not every rivalry needs to end up there and instead of it being a yearly mandate, it should be a more organic and natural progression to the match. I still like the idea of Halloween Havoc replacing HIAC as a yearly event, but I digress. We're hours away from this year's HIAC, so here are my quick picks.

Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin will beat the Hype Bros and the heel turn of Zack Ryder will be complete.

Bobby Roode will defeat Dolph Ziggler. I like both of these guys and still believe Roode's Glorious gimmick is better suited for a heel. 

Natalya will retain against Charlotte Flair. I like the idea of building more of a rivalry between these two. I want Natalya's run to mean something and not just be a transitional champion. 

Rusev will beat Randy Orton. He needs the win.

AJ Styles will beat (I hope) Baron Corbin. AJ, of course, doesn't need the U.S. Championship. I can't imagine Corbin's alleged 'dog-house' time is over yet, but stranger things have happened.

Shane McMahon will beat Kevin Owens in the Hell in a Cell falls-count-anywhere match. I've gone back and forth on this, but with the falls-count-anywhere stipulation, more McMahons can interfere and help Shane win and get redemption for his family. 

The New Day will retain against the Usos in the second Hell in a Cell match. I like both teams, but I'd rather New Day move forward as champs.

Shinsuke Nakamura will win the WWE Championship from Jinder Mahal. I've grown bored of Mahal. I'd like to see what WWE does with Nakamura as champ and hopefully, this puts the wheels in motion for a program with AJ.

What are your picks? Weigh in here or on the My 1-2-3 Cents Facebook page.

  1. With WWE headed to India soon, I don't see jinder losing. But the rest I agree with. Shame dolph doesn't get more of a push with him being around so long. He's great.
