This Sunday offers what will likely be the last Hell in a Cell match in The Undertaker’s illustrious career. No other professional wrestler has had as many matches inside the Cell as ‘Taker, but his record leaves a lot to be desired as evidenced by his +400 line at 5Dimes.
The Undertaker has competed in 12 Hell in a Cell matches in his career with six wins, five losses, and one no contest. As the Deadman has gone on through his career, the match has been used to elevate him to new heights, which has seen ‘Taker go 3-1 in his past four Hell in a Cell matches.
Looking across from the 50-year old Undertaker will be Brock Lesnar—the unstoppable, suplex machine that has destroyed most of the WWE roster. Lesnar is also part of an elite group of wrestlers who hold a win over ‘Taker in a Hell in a Cell match. The Beast Incarnate’s only Cell appearance came at No Mercy in 2002, with Lesnar retaining his WWE Championship vs the Undertaker.
Lesnar and Undertaker have faced off four times in singles competition during their careers, with Lesnar going 3-1.
Does Kane Really Have A Hope?
Let’s face it—Kane’s current storyline is roughly akin to some of the less-than-good booking we would see during the heyday of WCW rather than an angle involving the WWE World Heavyweight championship. Kane has been bouncing back-and-forth between ‘Cooperate Kane’ and ‘Demonic Kane,’ seemingly at the drop of a hat.
Despite Kane’s huge experience advantage over opponent Seth Rollins, the Big Red Machine has only competed in one Hell in a Cell match since 1999. Kane did walk away with a win over The Undertaker in that match, but experience is not necessarily a big edge for him.
Rollins, on the other hand, has never once competed in a Cell match in the WWE, but has proven that he can excel in those types of contests during his days as an independent wrestler.
The biggest question mark is the roll of The Authority, with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon still having a large part in both of these wrestlers` futures. That being said, Rollins is rightfully the -490 favorite to retain the belt at 5Dimes.
Do the Dudley Boys Have Another Run in Them?
The New Day has become a dominant force within the WWE over the past couple months. The trio of previously underutilized performers have become tag team champions and have, on several occasions, taken on the top tier guys in the company.
Though the future clearly belongs to the New Day, the present may still be for the Dudley Boyz. The Dudley’s resurfaced just a month ago and have immediately taken the fight to the New Day. Though father time is working against them, the Dudley’s have far more experience in big-time matches with their matches vs the Hardyz and Edge and Christian going down as some of the greatest in history.
Despite The New Day being fresh and in much more need of a rub, they are currently a +180 underdog to the Dudleys according to 5Dimes.
