Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, WWE Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Orton retains, but in a way that Sheamus gets to keep his heat.
Kane vs. The Undertaker, World Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Taker wins to become short-term champ. I don't see him losing two PPVs in a row unless (a) Paul Bearer turns or (b) something "supernatural" happens.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett- If Cena wins, Nexus disbands; if Barrett wins, Cena joins Nexus: I've got too many faces going over, so we'll say Barrett wins, even though I think the chances may be quite slim. I just don't see how you can pass up Cena-in-Nexus, at least for a few weeks.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison, Triple-Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the U.S. Title: Bryan retains.
Michelle McCool vs. Natalya, Divas Championship Match: McCool retains.

Yeah, see, only a madman would give up both the Nexus and the idea of John Cena in the Nexus. That's ripe with possibilities to draw money and ratings: Cena in a forced heel role as part of the faction he's been waging war against all summer. Just the visual of Cena in black and yellow taking marching orders from Wade Barrett is money.
Plus Bragging Rights is in 3 weeks. The Nexus can be its own entity in Bragging Rights with Cena as part of their team. There are too many possibilities to pass up this angle and have Cena disband the Nexus by beating Barrett.
The problem is the "Nexus is banned from the Cell" stipulation, forcing Barrett's first PPV solo match to be in a Hell in a Cell. Regardless, I'd have to go with:
Barrett Undertaker Bryan Orton McCool
(edited by John Orquiola on 30.9.10 0429) @BackoftheHead
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, WWE Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Orton wins by the skin of his teeth. Both of these guys will come out looking strong
Kane vs. The Undertaker, World Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Kane with the win, I think this thing will keep going and I think Paul Bearer will turn on Taker.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett- If Cena wins, Nexus disbands; if Barrett wins, Cena joins Nexus: Barrett wins with the help from Darren Young who's out of Nexus, but this gets him back him.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison, Triple-Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the U.S. Title: Daniel Bryan wins, but Miz doesn't lose. This leads to a one-on-one final match between Miz/Bryan
*Not sure if the Diva's match is going to be on the PPV but if it is I will pick LayCool to win by cheating
WWE Championship; Randy Orton (c) vs. Sheamus- Orton retains and wins but I see Sheamus brutally attacking Orton after the match nearly putting him on the shelf to help keep his heel heat going for him.
World Heavyweight Championship; Kane (c) vs. Undertaker- Undertaker seems to have come back thanks to the old-school ways (the urn and Paul Bearer) which should make me conclude Undertaker wins. I see Paul Bearer coming back short-term so he could turn on 'Taker and have Kane retain. My final guess......Kane retains the title via Paul Bearer quickly turning and keep this feud alive for one more month.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett; if Cena wins, Nexus is disbanded and if Barrett wins, Cena becomes a member of Nexus- I honestly do not see Nexus being disbanded just yet (almost). I will go with Barrett getting the W in this match and pulling off the upset.
US Title (Triple Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match); Daniel Bryan (c) vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison- I will go with Bryan to retain here. I will also say based on Raw, I think we will see John Morrison come full circle into becoming a heel again at the PPV by beating the heck out of Bryan after the match.
Divas Championship; LayCool (c) vs. Natalya Neidhart- Not much going on here so I will say LayCool retains.
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, WWE Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Randy Orton with the RKO on top of the cell? Could happen. Either way Orton retains.
Kane vs. The Undertaker, World Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: This is Taker's "signature match", and now his "power" is back I think he could take the belt. Undertaker wins the title.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett: If Cena wins, Nexus disbands; if Barrett wins, Cena joins Nexus: Wade Barrett holds his own and wins the match, forcing Cena to join them. How could this happen? Well, Nexus may be banned from ring side but "Genesis" isn't. The Darren Young interference is also plausible. Or.....Barrett simply just wins the match. Either way, Barrett wins and cancels out all the happiness from the faces winning the titles.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison, Triple-Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the U.S. Title: Morrison has to be in this match for a reason. It must mean;
- He's there to take the fall. - He's going to win the belt.
.....or must it?
My prediction; MIZ takes the fall, submitting to the LeBell Lock which blows off that feud. Morrison than gets pissed and this will start a potential feud between him and the Miz.
Or something. Either way, Daniel Bryan retains.
LayCool wins again. For the belts to be taken off there needs to be a long-running feud I think.

Taker. In current WWE thinking, the return of the urn means Taker is once again greater than Kane. More importantly that that, Smackdown has a new network, and WWE would rather have Taker carry the flag on the new netowrk than Kane.
Barrett. Simply put, Cena in the Nexus leads to a lot more interesting places than Nexus disbands. Hope I'm not wrong about this.
Bryan. This lets Miz decide he's more interested in feuding with Morrison than in getting the belt back. Miz wins a couple big matches against Morrison and looks strong for when he cashes in the briefcase.
ETA: McCool (or Layla, if she ends up wrestling instead). If Natalya is going to get the title at all, which I doubt, this will just be the start of building her for it.
This it IT? This is the entire card? I'd take a guess on a match being booked for the PPV this Friday, but what are THEY possibly building up to? Dolph/MVP? Blech! And they can't just toss out another throwaway tag team gauntlet match, because they just did that a few weeks ago. Sigh...anyway...
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, WWE Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: It'd be utterly pointless to put the belt on Orton and take it off him two weeks later. Orton wins, but he doesn't get to hit the punt.
Kane vs. The Undertaker, World Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: It'd be awfully nonsensical to have Paul Bearer come back, just to turn on UT at the PPV. But that's exactly what I think will happen. Kane wins and is reunited with his father, with Paul Bearer citing the cement incident as the reason for his turn.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett- If Cena wins, Nexus disbands; if Barrett wins, Cena joins Nexus: With so little booked for this card, they're essentially giving Barrett over 30 minutes, which could turn out disastrously. Darren Young (technically not Nexus) busts in with Michael Tarver's trusty bolt cutters and costs Cena the match. Barrett wins.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison, Triple-Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the U.S. Title: There was absolutely no reason to tack Morrison onto this match, other than he had nothing else to do. Bryan retains when he covers Morrison, keeping the feud with Miz going through Survivor Series.
Meanwhile, Edge, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, and Jack Swagger aren't booked. And for Swagger, it's his third straight PPV sitting at home. Life isn't fair sometimes.
Natalya vs. Michelle McCool: I'm actually expecting this feud to last a while, so Michelle wins via shenanigans.

"Playing guitars. It's hard to sing while playing...guitars."
WWE Title, Orton vs. Sheamus: They don't put the belt back on Sheamus this quickly. Could even end with some Triple H interference, but I can't see Trips helping Orton.
World Heavyweight Title: Kane vs. Undertaker: 'Taker wins; he's not gonna job in a Hell in a Cell match.
Cena vs. Barrett: There is no way they're gonna put John Cena in Nexus, despite the fact that that storyline is ripe with intriguing possibilities. They're doing the "Cena at last vanquishes his opponent" thing that they've done a zillion times before. But God, I hope I'm pleasantly surprised.
U.S. Title: Bryan vs. Miz vs. Morrison: The submission-only rules favor Bryan. In theory.

I seem to be the only one so far to pick Sheamus to regain the title, but I just think "Randy Orton: Viper Champion" is so BORING compared to "Randy Orton: Viper Contender" and Sheamus is GOLD with the...uh, gold, so I think they put the belt back on Sheamus.
I would dig Cena in the Nexus if it just stopped Cena's goofy entrances for a while, but unfortunately I think Cena beats Barrett because really the only other way the Nexus is going to be interesting to me again is if they start collecting all the gold, Horsemen-style. (And yes, while the plus side to that could be "Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel, WWE Unified Tag Team Champions, the flip side to that would have to be "Otunga or Tarver, US Champion," unless they split the US Title between them like a roided-up-black-dudes version of LayCool.)
And I'll go with the Miz to regain the US title, leading to a Bryan/Morrison mini-feud for a few weeks over who the #1 contender to the Miz' US title is.

Kane - Because the feud should continue. I think it's too early to turn Paul Bearer just now, though. Kane can win in a myriad of goofy ways to keep the feud going without turning Bearer, especially if Undertaker doesn't want to job clean two PPVs in a row.
Barrett - Because the possibilities, I say, the possibilities! I don't see them being able to pass up the possibilities and a potential main event at Bragging Rights where Cena is forced to don Nexus colors.
Bryan - Because I don't see him losing the title. Morrison will probably turn heel at the show or on the Raw immediately following, leading to Morrison v Bryan. The match could go something like this: Morrison falls victim to Miz/Riley shenanigans and is temporarily incapacitated. Bryan wipes out Miz and twists Morrison into a pretzel with the LeBell Lock for the win. Morrison complains afterwards (or on Raw) that Bryan stole it but Bryan will tell him that he was in the right place at the right time. Morrison decks him, and insta-feud! Miz will move into the title picture with his briefcase coming back into focus.
If Natalya v Michelle happens, I'll go with Michelle.
Kane-Undertaker: Kane with the help of Paul Bearer in a screw job finish
Cena vs Barrett: Barrett has to be the choice.
Orton vs Sheamus: Miz
Natayla vs LayCool: LayCool. Natayla only won because Melina screwed up her spot on the apron during the battle royal and fell off accidently. They could also do a screw job and find a way for Melina to get the title back.
Some match that Smackdown will set up this Friday on SyFy: Who knows??????
This would certainly shake up the card. Cena joining Nexus leads to a bunch of things. Miz winning the title by cashing in MiTB gives both Bryan and Miz a big boost up. Orton doesn't need the title now.
Originally posted by shawnpatrick BTW: Is Edge getting the night off???????? (edited by shawnpatrick on 30.9.10 0124)
I'm making the call that it'll be Edge vs. GM Laptop in HitC, with the finish being that Edge goes to spear the Laptop, trips, lunges headfirst into the cage, thus falling back onto the mat, making the laptop jump up intot he air and onto Edge's chest getting the pin, leading to Edge bitching about how "The Man" is holding him down.
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus, WWE Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Orton wins, but Edge may make a guest appearance.
Kane vs. The Undertaker, World Championship Match, Hell in a Cell: Paul Bearer turns on Taker which leads us to Taker either being "dead" again or Paul putting obstacles in front of Taker to get to Kane.
John Cena vs. Wade Barrett- If Cena wins, Nexus disbands; if Barrett wins, Cena joins Nexus: Cena wins. Rumor is Vince isn't too happy with the Nexus T-Shirt sales thus he is not happy with Nexus. Plus, its another scenario where John losing would lead to something interesting instead he defies the odds even with Darren Young, Genesis and the 43rd Airborne helping Wade.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz vs. John Morrison, Triple-Threat Submissions Count Anywhere Match for the U.S. Title: Bryan wins, because I hate when a face has the belt for less then a month after dethroning someone who had it forever.
Natalya vs. McCool. McCool wins since they seem to be in love with LayCool and nothing else in the women's division.
I am thinking a tag match will be added Friday, too weak of a card right now, I'll go with Hart Foundation as well as Punk if they add another Show/Punk match.
1) Michelle/Natalya - Unified Divas Title Match - Michelle by Faithbreaker submission.
2) Bryan/Miz/Morrison - US Title Triple Threat Match - Bryan by Labelle Lock on Morrison, Miz leaves ring area just before end of match.
3) Cena/Barrett - Cena joins Nexus or Nexus disbands match - I have waffled back and forth to how this match ends. I have thought about each situation. I have come up with this. Somehow Cena wins with the Attitude Adjustment followed by the STF submission. I could see half of the group ending up getting forced off TV due to retooling and ending up in Smackdown after a while.
4) Kane/Undertaker - HITC World Title Match - UT finally gets what's his via Tombstone.
5) Orton/Sheamus - HITC WWE Title Match - Orton by RKO...and when the cell is raised, here comes Miz with the briefcase...skull crushing finale...1,2,3. New Champion - The Miz. That is why he will leave mid-match in the triple threat match. Of course, it would make Michael Cole unbearable to listen to.
Silly question, but... I'm researching something for this week's Inside The Ropes column (what, you thought I made it all up?) and I'm trying to find out where/when the 'Best of the WWF' series on Coliseum Home Video ends.
