There are always a few very predictable matches at any WWE pay-per-view, and Hell in a Cell 2016 is no different. Sunday’s event might feature one or two upsets, but a few wrestlers are almost guaranteed to win their respective matches.
Roman Reigns is the biggest favorite on the card, and it would be shocking to see him lose. The betting website Paddy Power gives him 1/14 odds to defeat Rusev in their United States Championship match.
Despite losing a few big matches this summer, Reigns is still viewed by WWE as a top star. He won the title from Rusev at Clash of Champions last month, and he could be in for a lengthy title reign. Rusev is a 6/1 underdog, but his future in WWE is bright, even though he probably won’t have the belt on “Monday Night Raw.”
Sasha Banks is the second-biggest favorite on the card, and Charlotte is a 4/1 underdog in the first-ever women’s Hell in a Cell match. While Sasha is likely to retain the Raw Women’s Championship, recent history proves that a victory for Charlotte can’t be ruled out.
Two months ago at SummerSlam, it appeared to be a near certainty that Sasha would beat Charlotte and go on to hold the championship for several months. But Sasha dropped the belt after having won it just 27 days earlier on “Monday Night Raw.” Sasha reclaimed the championship on Oct. 3 on “Monday Night Raw,” and the feud between the two women has been so back-and-forth that anything can happen on Sunday.
Despite what the betting odds say, Kevin Owens might be more likely to hold onto his title than Sasha is to keep the Raw Women’s Championship. Owens faces Seth Rollins in a WWE Universal Championship match for the third time, and he’s already been victorious in the previous two instances. Whether it’s Triple H, Stephanie McMahon or Chris Jericho, someone will likely interfere and help Owens retain his belt.
The Cruiserweight Championship match is the most difficult one to predict at Hell in a Cell. WWE might not want to take the title off T.J. Perkins so soon, but Brian Kendrick’s promo on Monday indicates that he could leave Sunday’s PPV with the belt.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are big betting favorites over Enzo Amore and Big Cass. The New Day are expected to retain the Raw Tag Team titles against Cesaro and Sheamus.
