The third WWE Pay-Per-View in six weeks will be held this Sunday in Miami. "Hell in a Cell 2013" should settle several scores that were left unsettled at "Battleground."
The last WWE PPV was probably the worst of the year. The night began with no WWE champion and ended the same way when the Big Show knocked out Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton and the referee. The match between CM Punk and Ryback also had an odd ending when Punk won with a low blow. Both rematches should come to a definitive conclusion, since they’ll take place inside a cell.
John Cena makes his return to WWE television after missing two months of action. It was thought that a triceps injury would keep him out until 2014. However, the company’s top superstar will challenge Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight title.
Six matches are on the official match card for Hell in a Cell, including one on the pre-show, though a few will likely be added this week. Bray Wyatt was expected to face The Miz, but an injury appears to have derailed the WWE’s plans.
Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan (WWE Championship Hell in a Cell Match)

After being robbed of the title twice, it’s time for Bryan to start a lengthy WWE championship run. The most recent edition of Monday Night Raw has sparked some speculation that special guest referee Shawn Michaels could turn on Bryan. Either way, Bryan has to win if the WWE wants any chance of salvaging their No.1 storyline.
Prediction: Daniel Bryan
WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. Roman Reigns & Seth Rollins vs. The Usos
Cody Rhodes and Goldust won’t be giving up their titles any time soon. With a rumored WrestleMania match between the two possibly in the works, they’ll likely hold the belts until around the Royal Rumble. Once they are finally defeated, the feud between the two brothers can begin. This might end up being the most entertaining match on the card.
Prediction: Cody Rhodes and Goldust
World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena
The WWE probably realizes it’s time to get the belt off Del Rio. However, it’s hard to imagine Cena being the World Heavyweight champion for any significant period of time. Cena won’t lose clean, but there’s a good chance Damien Sandown will cash-in his Money in the Bank contract and spoil Cena’s return.
Prediction: John Cena
CM Punk vs. Ryback & Paul Heyman (Handicap Hell in a Cell Match)
It’s time for Punk to move on from his feud with Heyman. Before he gets back into the WWE title picture, the self-proclaimed “Best in the World” will finish off his former manager with the GTS he’s being looking to deliver for three months.
Prediction: CM Punk
Divas Champion AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella
Brie has beat AJ multiple times on TV to earn a title shot, but expect AJ’s run to continue. Brie hasn’t gotten over as a babyface like the WWE had hoped. Tamina Snuka might give the current champ an assist at ringside to help her retain the belt.
Prediction: AJ Lee
Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel vs. Big E Langston (Kickoff match)
Despite being the Intercontinental champ since June, Axel has continued to lose matches on television. Following his hot start, Mr. Perfect’s son has quickly cooled off. Babyfaces usually win on the pre-show, and this could be the start of a big push for Langston, who recently turned after debuting in the WWE as a heel.
Prediction: Big E Langston
