Ok, so I’m going to sidetrack back into the wacky world of wrestling for a moment. Sorry this thing is going to be a bit video heavy, but if you’re interested they are worth checking out. Also a side note, the links in here will be bracketed for your ease. By this point in time almost everyone who is aware of professional wrestling is also aware that it is scripted and predetermined.

Now, despite the fact that the Hell in a Cell matches themselves have lost a lot of their mystique, and there are three such matches on this card, there are still plenty of intriguing story lines and matches going in. I’m going to be giving a quick rundown of each match, who I think will win, and why. So without further ado let’s dive in.Continue reading Hell in a Cell Predictions
