Following on from one of the most exciting few days of WWE programming the WWE Universe has seen as of late, in which NXT Takeover, SummerSlam, Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live have all done well to impress, we've decided to look to the future, and the next big pay-per-view on the card.

So far, we know Brie Bella will be making her return to in-ring action alongside her husband Daniel Bryan, in a Mixed Tag Team match against The Miz and Maryse at September's Hell in a Cell, but what else do we think should make it to one of the most exciting events of the year?

5. Randy Orton vs Jeff Hardy in a No Holds Barred Falls Count Anywhere match

This week's SmackDown Live took things to another level in the feud between Randy and Jeff. Randy has turned into the ultimate heel, beating down Jeff whenever he's been granted the opportunity, so to see Jeff as the one to deliver a low blow and get himself disqualified, handing Randy the win, was a stroke of genius by writers.

This one needs to culminate with the Viper taking Jeff out for good, and focusing on his next victim. 

4. Roman Reigns (c) vs Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship

We know Braun's got the Money in the Bank briefcase, but wouldn't it be fantastic to see him earn his way into a spot without it, briefcase still in hand? If writers were really smart, they could have Roman go over on Braun, retaining the title, only for the Monster Amongst Men to get straight back up after the fight, cash in his briefcase, restart proceedings and take down an exhausted Reigns.

3. Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair (c) for the SmackDown Women's Championship

Whilst we'd love to see Becky and Charlotte go at it inside Hell in a Cell, we think a Singles match would be a better way to elevate what could be a slow burning and incredible feud. These two ladies will soon have a lot of bad blood between them. Going from former best friends to rivals who cannot stand to be near one another, seeing them unleash in Hell in a Cell would feel more like the end to their feud, rather than the start.

If we were in charge of booking, we'd have Becky capture the title early on, clean, and then give Charlotte an extra beat down following the match's conclusion. Throwing in the rest of the SmackDown women's locker room would also be a nice move, with the heels helping Becky rush Charlotte, and the faces defending her. This could set up a number of B-story rivalries, all whilst raising the stakes between Charlotte and Becky in the future.

Honestly, this rivalry could run and run until next year's WrestleMania.

2. Ronda Rousey (c) vs Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's Championship inside Hell in a Cell

We need to see more from Ronda, and she needs to work on her character. We don't need her to bellow out every spot as she did in her SummerSlam match.

Alexa also deserves to be used a little more efficiently in this rematch. She's not as squashable as she appeared at SummerSlam, and is actually one of the best female workers the company has seen for some time. Let her have her moments to shine. Get her up on top of the cell with Ronda. This is magic waiting to happen, if all involved are willing to put the work in.

1. AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship inside Hell in a Cell

The AJ and Samoa Joe feud is without a doubt one of the most compelling of recent memory. Bringing in the family element for AJ, the real-life friendship the pair have had, and even allowing AJ's daughter a spot at SummerSlam was pure brilliance. Take this to the next level, and have AJ's wife watching at ringside as her husband is decimated inside Hell in a Cell.

This would be the perfect opportunity for Joe to pick up the title for the first time. We might even encourage AJ's wife to be part of the reason he loses, taking her revenge against the absent husband and father Joe has hinted his rival has been.

WWE's Hell in a Cell 2018 runs on pay-per-view and on the WWE Network on September 16, 2018.
