Last year’s HIAC may have been the worst show of the year. This year, Roman Reigns isn’t even on the card. Oof. Hell in a Cell 2022 Predictions:
Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins, Hell in a Cell Match This third match should finally settle the score. I'm just happy there will be no outside interference or any way to leave the enclosed cage to ensure a fair and decisive for the eventual winner. Prediction: The American Nightmare Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch (Raw Women's Championship) Still can't get over how stupid Bianca's hair is. Prediction: I finish the dishes from the rest of the show. Bobby Lashley vs. Omos & MVP Still rooting for the guy who made Donald Trump President. Prediction: Bobby Lashley Finn Balor, AJ Styles & Liv Morgan vs. The Judgment Day. Intergender matches are dumb. Prediction: Liv Morgan tags in and Damian Priest beats the shit out of her for twenty minutes because she's one-hundred pound woman and he's a jacked demon. jk. The Judgement Day gets a pin. Austin Theory (c) vs. Mustafa Ali, US Championship Wish this was a "You're Fired" match instead. Prediction: Theory Ezekiel vs. Kevin Owens Kevin needs to back off the Ezekeiel-Elias conspiracy theories, the guy has lost it. Ezekiel is a stand-up guy who wants to represent his family. Who can't get behind that? Prediction: Ezekiel (who is obviously not his brother, Elias) Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss (No Holds Barred) These matches aren't repairing their friendship and you just hate to see it. Prediction: Madcap Moss
So the Hell in a Cell pay per view features one HIAC match, 1 1/2 women’s matches, no Roman Reigns and 0 Elias’. Nothing here looks too remarkable but should be an entertaining show. Prediction: Ezekiel is the highlight of the night.

It’s time for Backlash, our first post-Wrestlemania pay-per-view. As usual, we can expect a bunch of Mania rematches so there’s nothing too ground breaking here. However, Mania was awesome, so let’s do this. My picks:
Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins It's still too soon to get over that tattoo. Prediction: Seth Freakin Rollins Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Ronda Rousey, "I Quit" Match Only one women's match? Nice. Prediction: Ronda Rousey Drew McIntyre & RK-Bro vs. Roman Reigns & The Usos I don't care who he's facing, nobody can beat Roman. Nobody. Prediction: The Bloodline AJ Styles vs. Edge AJ keeps losing friends and Edge keeps making them. Bad move in this sport. Prediction: Edge Bobby Lashley vs. Omos If it weren't for Bobby Lashley, Hillary Clinton would be President importing the entirety of South America into our country. Prediction: Bobby Lashley Happy Corbin vs. Madcap Moss It's hard to believe these two guys were such close friends just a month ago. Hopefully this match will settle their differences and they can be best buds again. Prediction: Madcap Moss
So overall there is one only women’s match and no Bianca Belair. That’s enough to make Backlash a decent show. Prediction: I enjoy it but forget about the show just like every other Backlash.
