WWE Hell in a Cell 2014 will be takingplace this Sunday in the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. With the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar not scheduled to make an appearance, it will be interesting to see how this event will go. Let's look at the card.

Big Show will be the latest person to face Rusev. I like Rusev but I am getting a bit sick and tired of him just beating huge guys. It's time for him to challenge for a Championship. Anyway, Rusev to win here.
Predicted Winner: Rusev

Nikki Bella will take on her sister Brie Bella, in which the loser must become the winner's personal assistant for a month. It's a hard one to call but I'm going for Brie to win here.
Predicted Winner: Brie Bella

The Usos and Goldust and Stardust will once again face each other for the WWE World Tag Team Championships. Their matches have been pretty good so I expect the same here. I think that Goldust and Stardust will retain here.
Predicted Winners: Goldust and Stardust

Cesaro has decided to challenge for the Intercontinental Championship in a 2-out-of-3 falls match against Dolph Ziggler. I'm quite looking forward to this match and I think that Cesaro will be victorious here.
Predicted Winner: Cesaro

Paige will once again chgallenge AJ Lee for the Divas Championship. I've quite enjoyed thier matches and I expect to see another good one here. I'm going for AJ Lee to stay the Champion here. 
Predicted Winner: AJ Lee

Hollywood Miz has decided to spice things up and challenge Sheamus for the United States Championship. Whilst I expect that Damien Mizdow will try his best to help, I still think that Sheamus will be victorious here.
Predicted Winner: Sheamus

In the first of two Hell in a Cell matches, Dean Ambrose will take on Seth Rollins. This is the match that I'm most looking forward to and I expect it will be a lot of fun. I really would like Ambrose but I think that Rollins will find some way to win here.
Predicted Winner: Seth Rollins

In the second Hell in a Cell match, John Cena will face Randy Orton for seems like the 500th fucking time. Yeah, Orton is not winning this match.
Predicted Winner: John Cena

I won't get to see this for a couple of weeks. I've still to watch Bound for Glory and publish a podcast that I recrded almost a month. Hopefully, I'll get the blog up to date as soon as I can. Until then, I hope you guys enjoy the show.

WWE Night of Champions 2014 Review

WWE Night of Champions took place in Nashville, Tennessee. With all the Championships on the line, how many new Champions will we see? Let's take a look.

The first match is for the Tag Team Championship as Goldust and Stardust challenge The Usos. Jey Uso gets worked over after receiving a cheap shot by Goldust. Jey manages to tag in Jimmy but his momentum is stopped after a brutal powerslam on the outside by Goldust. Stardust and Goldust work on Jimmy before he gets the hot tag to Jey. After some back and forth, Jey tries to splash Stardust. However, Stardust gets the knees up and pins Jey to get the win. I quite enjoyed the match although I wasn't a big fan of the ending.
Winners: Goldust and Stardust
Predictions: 1 for 1

Next we get Cesaro challenging Sheamus for the United States Championship. In this, we get a lot of brawling. Near the end of the match, Cesaro avoids a Brogue kick and hits an European uppercut. Sheamus does eventually kill Cesaro with a brutal Brogue kick to get the win. It was an enjoyable match and it told a good story.
Winner: Sheamus
Predictions: 2 for 2

The Intercontinental Championship match was next as Hollywood Miz with Damien Mizdow challenges Dolph Ziggler with R-Ziggler. After a while, Mizdowinterferes then attacks R-Ziggler and mocks the band Florida Georgia Line (never heard of them) who were on commentary. They push down Mizdow and R-Ziggler chases him to the back. Miz applies the figure 4 but Ziggler gets to the ropes. The end comes when Mizdow comes back and gts superkicked by ZIggler. This gives Miz the opportunity to roll up Ziggler and get the win with some help from a handful of tights. It was a decent match and I would say that I look forward to Miz's reign. However, Ziggler regains it the next night.
Winner: Hollywood Miz
Predictions: 3 for 3

We now get a segment with Seth Rollins. He feels that Roman Reigns having emergency surgery for a hernia is not an excuse for him not turning up. Rollins sportingly gives Reigns a ten count to turn up. Obviously, that is not going to happen so Rollins claims victory by forfeit.

Afterwards, Rollins issues an open challenge. Dean Ambrose convienently arrives by taxi to accept the challenge and proceed to beat the fuck out of Rollins all ovwer the arena. Eventually, Security arrive to stop Ambrose and escort him out of the building. I'm glad that Ambrose is back and I can't wait to see how this feud develops.

Next is Mark Henry taking on Rusev. After not gettign Rusev a chance to get going, Henry gets slammed against the steel steps. Rusev works on his back and tries to apply the accolade. However, Henry gets out of it and manages to hit the World's Strongets Slam. Rusev manages to roll out of the ring and hits a superkick when Henry attempts to drag him back in. Rusev hits another superkick in the ring then applies the accolade to get the win. I quite enjoyed the match, although I feel that Henry should have given more of a fight.
Winner; Rusev
Predictions: 4 for 4

Next is the match between Chris Jericho and Randy Orton. Durign the match, Orton does some unpleasant moves to Jericho such as sending him flying over the turnbuckle; and a back suplex onto the announce table. Jericho does get back into it and hits a lionsault after avoiding a RKO. After some back and forth, including a code breaker by Jericho; Orton does get the win afetr a super RKO. I really enjoyed the match and they were a lot of good spots between the two of them.
Winner: Randy Orton
Predictions:  5 for 5

Next is the Divas Championship match with Paige facing the challenges of AJ Lee and Nikki Bella. Paige doesn't get any offence for the first half of this match, which pissed me off because she is the Champion. The end comes when AJ sends Nikki onto the floor then applies the black widow on Paige to get the win. I thought it was a decent match but it seemed more like a AJ/Nikki match. I was surprised that AJ won the match but it makes sense to keep the Championship between AJ and Paige for now.
Winner: AJ Lee
Predictions: 5 for 6

The main event is John Cena challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Lesnar keeps on doing what he did last time and hit 7 suplexes and apply the kimura 3 times. Cena does put up more of a fight and he manages to hit the AA 3times. Cena hits a fourth AA and pins Lesnar. However, Rollins comes in and breaks up the pin, casuing the disqualification. He takes out Cena, hits a curb stomp on Lesnar, driving his head onto the MITB briefcase; then tries to cash in, Cena recovers and brawls with Rollins, preventing him from cashing in. Rollins then flees.

The match wasn't too bad, although I thought the ending made no sense. Surely, if Rollins wanted to cash in, it would make more sense to do it on Cena, instead of a man who could geniunely kill him.
Winner: John Cena
Predictions: 5 for 7

I thought that Night of Champions wasn't a bad event. The had some good matches but the WWE seem to be using the same guys all the time in their Pay-Per-Views at the minute. It would be nice to see a bit of variation.
