Five WWE titles will be put on the line Sunday night in Boston at Hell in a Cell, and six stars will compete inside the most brutal structure in the sport, which has given us some unforgettable (and heart-stopping) memories over the years. Here's a full run-down of the card for Raw's exclusive pay-per-view.
Hell in a Cell will begin at 8:00 p.m. ET on the WWE Network. The pre-show will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Pre-show: Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado and Sin Cara vs. Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese in a six-man tag
There's really no better way to start a pay-per-view than with Cruiserweight division action, and these six should be able to get the crowd in Boston hyped up for the main show. Who actually wins the match is a total toss-up, but since this is a mood-setter, we're going with the faces.
Pick: Alexander, Lince Dorado and Sin Cara
Bayley vs. Dana Brooke
Bayley and Dana Brooke come to Hell in a Cell fresh off their agonizing arm wrestling match on Raw, and this probably won't be the last time these two meet in the coming months as they both remain well outside of the title picture.
Pick: Bayley if this match happens after Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte, Dana Brooke if it happens before. (A Bayley loss would add a little more tension to the women's title match as it would make the Charlotte camp look stronger, but it's anyone's guess as to the match order for HIAC).
Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson
The top four Raw tag-teams will all be in action Sunday, and this match could determine the next No. 1 contender. Gallows and Anderson have struggled to maintain momentum since losing AJ Styles in the Draft, while Enzo and Cass are unquestionably the most popular tag team on the roster now - but they're more well-known for their pre-match promos than their actual in-ring results. This is another toss-up, but we'll go with Gallows and Anderson because they simply need the win more to stay relevant.
Pick: Gallows and Anderson
TJ Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
(The) Brian Kendrick's recent promos as a desperate journeyman have been interesting, but with no clear new No. 1 contender ready to step in and challenge for the title, along with the fact that Perkins has only held the title since mid-September, it feels like WWE could continue to stretch this out.
Pick: TJ Perkins
The New Day vs. Cesaro and Sheamus for the Raw Tag Team Championship
Cesaro and Sheamus seem primed to be the team that finally dethrones The New Day, but the question is whether it will happen before or after The New Day breaks Demolition's record for the longest tag title reign of 478 days, which has been mentioned on WWE broadcasts nearly every week.
The New Day likely won't be defending their title at Survivor Series due to a tag elimination match they should be competing in, so if The New Day's reign stretches until the next Raw-exclusive PPV (Roadblock on December 18th), they'd be at a total of 483 days. Given the record's buildup, I think The New Day either holds on until Roadblock or the streak is snapped just before on an episode of Raw.
Pick: The New Day
Roman Reigns vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship inside Hell in a Cell
Of the three matches taking place inside Hell in a Cell Sunday, Rusev vs. Roman Reigns is the one that makes the most sense when you remember how physically brutal and personal their feud has been. Reigns ruined Rusev and Lana's wedding celebration after all. If that doesn't call for a Hell in a Cell match, nothing should. Expect their match to be brutal, for Lana to be involved somehow, and for Reigns to retain.
Pick: Roman Reigns
Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte for the Raw Women’s Championship inside Hell in a Cell
Sasha Banks and Charlotte will make history with the first women's Hell in a Cell match Sunday, and while their bout is being promoted as one of the "triple main event" matches, there's a chance they could become the first women to go on last at a WWE pay-per-view in Banks' hometown of Boston. This feels like a final chapter a final chapter in their rivalry for now - and the women's division could use some new feuds rather than the Charlotte-Banks show each week.
Pick: Sasha Banks
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship inside Hell in a Cell
Is Triple H finally going to return and provide some insight as to why he handed the Universal title to Kevin Owens? Is Chris Jericho going to help his best friend (or potentially cost him the title and spark what would be an incredible feud)? There are a ton of questions surrounding this championship match, which has felt a little overshadowed by other storylines on Raw recently.
