The main match of the night is once again going to be Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton for the vacant WWE Championship. This match has a few added elements, mainly that it is going to be inside the Cell and that Shawn Michaels will be the special guest referee. This match feels a lot better to me then Battleground's match did, and I am very interested in watching it because it can go a lot of ways.
Shawn Michaels has been a wild card in virtually every match he has ever been in, and this one is no different. He is every bit as likely to superkick Daniel Bryan as he is to Randy Orton. HBK could turn on his old friend, or his old student and both would not be surprising. The unpredictability of what Shawn Michaels is going to do is what is going to make this match special, so I definitely will be keeping a close eye on the action.
All though I have expressed my distaste for the HIAC PPV concept, but I actually don't mind this match taking place inside the Cell. Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan have had a long-standing feud and after several controversial finishes, they will settle it inside the Cell. That is what the HIAC was designed to be, a feud ender for major storylines.
This match is as much of a toss-up as there could possibly be, so I really do not have any faith in any particular result happening. I will go ahead and guess that Daniel Bryan wins the WWE Championship cleanly, if only because I think if they job out Bryan again he may begin to lose some of his popularity. Randy Orton could easily win, especially of HBK screws Bryan and aligns with Orton/HHH, so this match is really up in the air.
The second Cell match taking place is the handicap match between CM Punk and Ryback/Paul Heyman. The feud has been far from Punk's best work, and it will be refreshing to see Punk (hopefully) put this whole thing behind him after Sunday. Punk has beaten Curtis Axel about 50 times, and he has already beaten Ryback on several occasions. There really is not that much to gain from Punk having ANOTHER match with either of the Heyman guys.
This match should be predictable enough. Locked inside the Cell, Ryback and Punk will go at it for a while, with Heyman lurking in the corner away from the violence. Eventually Punk will put Ryback down with something extreme, like multiple GTSs or something, and then he will get his hands on Heyman. Heyman will try to escape, but will be unable to because of the Cell, and Punk will beat the snot out of Heyman for a few minutes and nab the pinfall, finally putting an end to the feud.
For the first time in at least a year, the World Heavyweight Championship is getting a really big part of the spotlight. The reason of course for this sudden emphasis is that John Cena will make his return to the WWE after being on the shelf for a few months due to elbow surgery. Cena, somehow, possibly with the aid of dark wizardry, became the number one contender for the WHC while he was rehabbing, and will challenge the incumbent Alberto Del Rio for the championship.
