Enjoyed Amore & Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson
After promising to end the “fun and games” of Raw’s Tag Team division, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson will take aim at one of the most fun-loving alliances in all of WWE, Enzo Amore &Big Cass, this Sunday at WWE Hell in a Cell 2016, WWE.com has learned.
In a division anchored by The New Day’s power of positivity and highlighted by Enzo & Cass’ contagious brand of joviality, Gallows & Anderson stand in stark contrast to the competition. Though the brutes in black tried their hand at outlandish, lighthearted antics in the past — to mostly unpopular results — Gallows & Anderson have since returned to what brought them to the dance in the first place: Relentless, hard-nosed brutality.
Whereas Amore & Cass find inspiration in exciting the WWE Universe, Gallows & Anderson’s objective is to beat up teams and fatten their bank accounts. Just because “Smack-Talker Skywalker” and his 7-foot-tall teammate enjoy the support of the fans, however, does not mean they shy away from fisticuffs. Which team will move up the ladder of Raw’s tag team ranks this Sunday?
Will Gallows & Anderson’s crusade take a major step forward, or can Enzo & Cass prove there is room for fun and games and winning matches?
I feel that Enzo & Cass will get the win , although I actually hope that Gallows & Anderson get the win here. Ever since they’ve come to WWE, the only real traction they gained was when they were working with AJ Styles, since he got drafted to SmackDown, its kind of been a downhill struggle for them ever since.
Anderson & Gallows need to get some wins and reestablish themselves as a top tag team in the division. I predict a distraction win for Enzo & Gallows, pretty much the same way Enzo won on this weeks Raw, a big boot from Cass to get the win.
It should be a pretty good match, but i don’t really see it going any longer than 15 minutes.
Winners: Enzo & Cass
The New Day vs Cesaro & Sheamus (RAW World Tag Team Championship)
For weeks, Sheamus and Cesaro attempted to pummel one another into absolute oblivion. Now, they will attempt to put their differences aside and challenge long-reigning WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day at WWE Hell in a Cell.
Following Cesaro and Sheamus’ Best of Seven Series that saw neither Superstar clinch the elusive and series-deciding fourth win, Raw General Manager Mick Foley decided to flip the script. Because no victor was decided, but a championship opportunity had been promised to the series’ winner, Foley announced that Cesaro and Sheamus would get a title match — together, as a unit — against the Raw Tag Team Champions.
Their opponents, The New Day, know all about championship opportunities, having seized theirs over a year ago. Some 400 days later, the rotating trio of Big E, Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods has put down some of the toughest challengers to step their way, including The Dudley Boyz, The Vaudevillains and, most recently, the formidable duo of Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows.
Will The New Day’s incredible success continue against the double-tough team of Cesaro & Sheamus? Or will the challengers’ inability to get along be their undoing?
As good as a team as Cesaro & Sheamus are (who would have thought). There’s no way they are winning the titles. At least not yet anyway. As of writing, The New Day are at day 425 of their current tag team championship reign. However, Demolition currently hold the record with 478 days for a tag team championship reign in WWE.
The fact that The New Day are less than 2 months away from defeating Demolitions reign, tells me New Day are not going to lose until defeating the reign. Especially since Demolition are one of just a few previous wrestlers suing WWE regarding concussions and treatment. So this would be WWE’s kick in their face to them.
Saying that surprised do happen & Cesaro & Sheamus could surprise us all and become the new champions (something I’d absolutely love to see). They are a complete odd pairing, yet comical and work well together in a strange but wonderful way.
Winners: The New Day
TJ Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick (WWE Cruiserweight Championship)
WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins and his WWE Hell in a Cell opponent, Brian Kendrick, are no strangers to one another, sharing a history that goes back to Perkins’ earliest days in sports-entertainment. Yet, that doesn’t mean The Fil-Am Flash has any easier time recognizing or respecting the man Kendrick has become.
The veteran Wizard of Odd — once a supportive mentor to Perkins — has grown determined to make the most of his late-career renaissance and has thought nothing of taking cheap shots at the Cruiserweight Champion. Embittered by coming up short at WWE Clash of Champions, Kendrick downed Perkins after the bell that night. Kendrick attempted to sneak-attack him again weeks later in the locker room area only to have a prepared, if disappointed, Perkins fend him off.
Kendrick has proven that he can beat Perkins. The Post-Apocalyptic Scavenger defeated the champion in a non-title contest on the Oct. 3 Raw, making Perkins submit to the vicious neck crank known as the Captain’s Hook. Will the result be the same at WWE Hell in a Cell? Or can the exciting Fil-Am again rise above Kendrick’s cruel intentions and desperate measures to keep his title reign going?
This shouldn’t be the last match in their feud but it probably will be if TJ Retains. It seems as if Kendrick is on his last chance, basically begging TJ to let him win this past week on Raw. If he can’t prove himself against TJ at Hell in a Cell, what does the future hold for him? If he does defeat Perkins, will this change his attitude or will he become complacent in his almost certain last WWE run.
Even though these two have history, and lots of it. (Friends from a very young age). TJ simply will not just let Brian win, after the struggle and sacrifice Perkins went through in the Cruiserweight Classic to get to where he is now. If
Kendrick wants the title I believe he’s going to have to do everything in his arsenal to win.
This should be an interesting matchup, possibly ending in a dirty finish via Kendrick. There is a lot more that can happen with this feud if booked right, but with the other cruiserweight on Raw fighting for a spot as the next Cruiserweight champion its going to be a difficult one to portray.
Winner: Brian Kendrick
Roman Reigns vs. Rusev (WWE United States Championship)
Roman Reigns is headed to Hell itself — Hell in a Cell, that is — for a U.S. Championship battle with Rusev at WWE Hell in a Cell, Sunday, Oct. 30, live on WWE Network.
The match marks Big Dog’s return to the legendary structure that has both settled rivalries (including his own) and potentially shortened careers (including Shane McMahon’s), and will be Rusev’s first turn inside the towering steel enclosure that has loomed large for the last two decades. And it came about in a surprisingly literal way: After his U.S. Title win against The Super Athlete at Clash of Champions was followed by an indecisive rematch, Lana petitioned Reigns for another title rematch on behalf of The Bulgarian Brute.
When Reigns responded with jokes and derision, The Ravishing Russian snapped back, “Go to hell!” — a sentiment Rusev himself echoed in a more physical manner when he laid out The Big Dog moments later.
Once he regained his senses, Reigns not only delivered a huge Superman Punch, but he also agreed to the bout provided it was inside Hell in a Cell, thus sentencing himself and The Super Athlete to a title match inside the massive steel structure. Which of these high-powered athletes will walk out of Hell in a Cell with their souls intact and championship gold around their waist?
After Roman surprised the wrestling world and was suspended for 30 days due to WWE’S welfare policy, ever since returning Roman has pretty much been out of the World Title scene. Bring in Rusev.
Roman has been pushed down our throats for too long now and that’s why a lot of people boo him. Realistically this is not a downfall on Romans behalf, but on WWE and their poor booking of Roman! Meant to be a babyface but still getting booed around arenas worldwide. This is where the Rusev fued has helped Roman a lot.
Feuding with Rusev has dramatically helped viewers perceive Roman differently. Obviously he will always be booed by someone (like any wrestler) but with Rusev being a notorious and great heel, this has poured many fans towards Reigns’ camp as well as also improving Romans mic skills which is a plus.
Rusev has been a great opponent for Roman and has been on fire lately. Rusev should definitely be considered for World Championship in the next few years. Their hell in a cell match is going to be a vicious match, with probably a high stake of escaping the cell and turning into a pure brawl at ringside with potential spots off the cell.
Hopefully this will end the feud and being on new storylines and opponents for each after Hell In A Cell. We can move forward towards a feud enroute to the Royal Rumble.
Winner: Roman Reigns
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins (WWE Universal Championship)
What will go down when these two heated rivals go head-to-head inside WWE’s most hellacious combat zone?
The Architect has appeared to be a man possessed recently in his quest to win the WWE Universal Title, defying authority’s orders and going on the attack against KO and anyone in his way. Despite being hell-bent on once again becoming the champion, Rollins has been met with obstacle after obstacle. Whether it’s Owens himself, KO’s best buddy Chris Jericho or WWE COO Triple H, the No. 1 contender has been met with resistance at every turn.
Confronting these hurdles, Rollins will have another chance to overcome WWE’s Prizefighter. Will the addition of the unforgiving steel enclosure known as Hell in a Cell ensure that there will be no further controversy and no excuses for the outcome on Oct. 30? Since winning the WWE Universal Championship, Owens has shown a knack for evading danger. Yet, will he be able to survive another battle against Rollins — in the career-altering Cell, no less — with his coveted championship in tow?
To me, it just feels like this feud has been very stale. I’m not sure what it is, I like both Owens & Rollins but the feud just hasn’t been exciting for me. As good as both of these guys are in the ring I don’t think we are going to see a particularly spectacular match, although I do hope I’m proven wrong.
At least with this match being inside the cell, Jericho can’t interfere (he can but let’s go with kayfabe). This is just going to be a pretty standard match, just inside the cell. I don’t think anyone’s going to be going through the cell, jumping off it or throwing anyone off. No crazy spots is what I believe.
Hopefully the crowd can stay focused too, as there’s nothing worse than a match that can be good but is ruined by the fans. There is a good chance of this happening though, 3 hell in a cell Marge’s in one PPV can and mostly likely will take a lot out of the fans and this is one of the cons of this PPV. But hopefully they can go our and do their best.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair (Raw Women’s Championship)
Already revolutionaries, WWE Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and bitter rival Charlotte Flair will make history yet again on Oct. 30 when they become the first female Superstars ever to battle inside the unforgiving Hell in a Cell.
Raw General Manager Mick Foley and Commissioner Stephanie McMahon approved the stipulation, which was suggested by Banks, on the Oct. 10 edition of Raw, further intensifying what was already going to be a fiery clash.
Sasha is defending the prestigious championship in front of her home crowd at TD Garden in Boston. Although the home-arena advantage will undoubtedly benefit The Boss, Charlotte will likely remain undeterred.
After all, the two Superstars have traded the Raw Women’s Championship since its inception at WrestleMania 32, each competitor having held it twice. As insurance, Charlotte may have her protégé, Dana Brooke, at ringside, but her presence is unlikely to affect the proceedings, thanks to the Cell’s 20-foot-high steel walls, roof and locked door.
