Thoughts & Predictions
June 19, 2021
Tomorrow night, on Peacock and the WWE Network, is WWE Hell In A Cell. Only six matches have been announced as I write this, but I’m sure a few more will be added over the next 24 hours. Let’s make a few predictions.
Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins
Seth is a made man in the WWE and Cesaro, he’s on his way, but if he loses here, it’s one step forward and two steps back. I truly expect to see a damn good match with both men looking great, but unless Seth has a few new followers pop up to cause shenanigans, the man standing at the end should be Cesaro. I think it will be Swing time and Cesaro will walk out with the big “W”.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre inside Hell In A Cell. If Drew loses, he will not receive additional title shots at Lashley.
Let’s be honest here. Drew has already lost cleanly to Lashley several times and while these two men always have great matches, it’s time to move on. I don’t think we’ll be seeing any title changes here.
Winner and STILL WWE Champion: Bobby Lashley
WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Bayley inside Hell In A Cell.
It’s too soon to take the title off of Bianca. Bayley will give it a hundred percent and this will be a good fight, but the outcome isn’t really in any doubt.
Winner and STILL WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion: Bianca Belair
WWE Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair.
If Charlotte wins, Rhea’s whole reign will have been a total waste of time. It’s just that simple. It’s too soon to take the belt off of Rhea and since next month is Money In The Bank, that should be the endgame. Look for Rhea to retain.
Winner and STILL WWE RAW Women’s Champion: Rhea Ripley
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn.
These two men are the Flair/Steamboat or Bret Hart/HBK of their generation. So many great matches and they bring out the absolute best in each other. But I have a feeling in my gut that unlike 98%of their previous encounters, this one will go to Sami. Not sure why exactly, but he needs a win.
Winner: Sami Zayn
Alexa Bliss vs. Shayna Baszler.
With the WWE fixing to return to live audiences and real people, the antic of Miss Alexa probably won’t get over quite as well, hence the removal of her doll and things slightly leaning back towards the real world, well kind of anyhow. If this was just a regular match, Shayna should dominate and decimate Miss Bliss. But what about the skeletons in Alexa’s closet? What about Bray Wyatt, aka The Fiend? What about that ugly-ass damn doll. All of those variables point to chaos and a few “what the fuck” moments. But it’s all moot, I suppose. It’ll probably be a no-contest finish, but I’ll pick a winner anyhow. And her name is Shayna Baszler.
Winner: Shayna Baszler
