WWE makes it’s final pitstop ahead of a busy summer as this Sunday will be the Premium Live Event known as Hell in a Cell. While the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship will not be defended on the show, there’s plenty of matches on this card carrying enough story to make fans excited. The main event will complete the trilogy inside the daunting structure and Bianca Belair will defend her Raw Women’s Championship against two of the hardest hitters in the WWE Women’s Division today. Here’s a look at the lineup for Hell in a Cell 2022 and who could walk out of the two biggest matches as the winners.
WWE Hell in a Cell 2022 Lineup
— Ezekiel vs. Kevin Owens
— Madcap Moss vs. Happy Corbin in a No Holds Barred Match
— Bobby Lashley vs. Omos & MVP
— AJ Styles, Finn Balor & Liv Morgan vs. The Judgement Day (Edge, Damian Priest & Rhea Ripley)
— United States Championship: Theory (c) vs. Mustafa Ali
— Raw Women’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch
— Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins in a Hell in a Cell Match
Raw Women’s Championship Triangle: Bianca Belair Defends Against Two Former Champions
The Raw Women’s Championship has been in the news a lot lately but not because of Bianca Belair but rather how we got to this triple threat match for Sunday night. By now everyone knows that Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of WWE the night that Belair was supposed to see who would be her opponent at Hell in a Cell. With them stepping out, it led to Asuka defeating Becky Lynch that very night to become the number one contender. However, it was the week after that “Big Time Becks” earned her own opportunity by pinning Asuka in the main event of Raw, making it a triple threat match. Belair has a times been the odd woman out during this budding feud between “The Empress of Tomorrow” and “Big Time Becks” but she surely won’t feel that way any longer Sunday night.
This really is the best of the best going head-to-head-to-head in this one and while it’s as even as can be to walk out of this one as champion, it would be foolish to bet against “The EST of WWE,” who has been nothing but fantastic since getting back on track and defeating Lynch at WrestleMania to win the Raw Women’s Championship.
Prediction: Bianca Belair
Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins One More Time: This Time in Hell (in a Cell)
There isn’t a better thing going in the world of WWE than the feud between Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Despite not winning either of the first two matchups, Rollins has been determined to make Rhodes pay for returning to WWE and trying to take his spot as the top guy on Monday Night Raw. Rhodes, in response, has done nothing but win. It was this past Monday that Rollins took it “there,” making note that Rhodes cannot take a sledgehammer to the throne then return to take that same throne from Rollins — alluding to Rhodes’ entrance at All Elite Wrestling’s first ever event, Double or Nothing, in 2019 where Rhodes destroyed the hypothetical throne of none other than Triple H. But even without this comment, this has been personal since Rhodes returned at WrestleMania.
The main problem for Rollins is that he has had no answers for “The American Nightmare” in their frist two matches. Rollins thought the reason he lost at WrestleMania was due to not knowing his opponent was heading into the match but Rhodes proved that thought process to be wrong when he defeated him in a second-straight match at WrestleMania Backlash. It’s turned into obsession for “The Architect,” who wants nothing more to take down Rhodes and show he, not “The American Nightmare,” is the face of Monday nights. In the trilogy-defining match, these two men will enter Hell in a Cell. Truthfully, there isn’t a more fitting stipulation for a feud than this one. Everything about this match should be special and should end the feud one way or another.
Prediction: Cody Rhodes
