Hell in a Cell Preview

Another new PPV concept is being introduced tonight, one where three main event matches will be contested inside Hell in a Cell. Looking at the card, I'm wondering if they should've just put every match inside the Cell, certainly would've been interesting. Here are Five Things I'm looking for in tonight's PPV:

5. Dolph Ziggler & John Morrison become Superstars
Dolph, through no fault of his own, has lost a lot of momentum in the last month. Rey Mysterio's suspension really stalled things out for him, but it also allowed for John Morrison to get a lot of his lost momentum back, so perhaps it all worked out in the end? We'll find out tonight when these two finally collide. I expect Ziggler to pick up the win, but I have a feeling this match could be a game changer for both these guys.

4. Drew McIntyre lives up to the hype
Vince McMahon himself formally introduced this guy to the WWE Universe, even going so far to call him a "future World Champion," that's one hell of an endorsement and one that should not be taken lightly. This is a sink or swim opportunity McIntyre, I just hope his match with R-Truth - which was just added to the card this morning - doesn't take away from the rest of the card.

3. So long, Randy!
Randy Orton has been in the WWE Title picture since his return from injury last year, it's time for him to take a step down. He's stale, boring and hasn't done anything interesting in months, his lackeys have surpassed him! Orton needs to be knocked out of the title picture and a Hell in a Cell match with John Cena is the perfect opportunity. Give Cena the definitive win and come up with something to inject some life into the Viper's character. Orton needs something fresh, hopefully with motivation other than the WWE Title, he'll find it.

2. Kofi Kingston retains
It's a multi-man match, Kofi can't lose! I'm going to be campaigning for this until January, but I really think WWE has stumbled onto greatness by not knowing what to do with the US Title division. They seem to like throwing guys in the ring together with the belt on the line, but with Kofi continuing to come out on top, they've made him look unbeatable in these kind of matches. Triple Threats, Fatal Four Ways, Six Pack Challenges, Kofi's survived them all, so why not use this to hype him up heading into the 2010 Royal Rumble?! Kofi MUST retain here, he can drop the belt in a one-on-one match tomorrow for all I care, but he must hold onto his status of thriving in a chaotic environment.

1. CM Punk & Undertaker steal the show
Their match last month was criminally short, but understandable in the context of the story. Tonight, however, is Hell in a Cell, the match The Undertaker helped create 12 years ago. And let's not forget his famous line about what happens when you're inside the Cell with The Phenom, "I'll make ya famous." No matter the outcome, Taker can make Punk famous here and add another Match of the Year candidate to his resumé, I hope we get to see it.

Finally, my quick predictions, with one slight change from the predictions I made on this week's Kick-Out!! Radio. Winners in bold.
