However, I will say that every pay per view this year has at least had a compelling main event, with this one being no exception. And I'm sure we'll see a lot of great stuff in the ring. But a pay per view with mostly rematches is not very interesting at all.
With that said, here are my predictions from start to finish...
Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt in Hell in a Cell
After the match, the other Wyatt Family members comes down to ringside, and Braun Stroman rips the door off of its hinges, ala Kane from the first Hell in a Cell match. As The Wyatts surround Reigns in the ring, Dean Ambrose rushes out, but it's still four on two. Suddenly the lights go out, and the cell raises, as Chris Jericho's music hits. Jericho stands side by side with Reigns and Ambrose, who look reluctant at first, but eventually become comfortable with this, and are able to fight off the Wyatts. Reigns isolates Bray from the group, and they fight through the crowd, with Rowan following behind.
And that leads into the next match.
Luke Harper and Braun Stroman vs. Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho
After the match, Jericho tries to help Ambrose to his feet, but Ambrose shoves him off. They exchange words about what happened, and eventually start brawling, having to be separated by referees and officials.
[Jojo is in the back with Paul Heyman]
Jojo: Excuse me, Mr. Heyman, we already witnessed one Hell in a Cell match tonight. What can we expect from the second Hell in a Cell match between your client Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker?
Heyman: Excuse me, little girl, but do you need some help finding your parents? I don't know where they find you people, but as far as your question goes, there is not going to be any comparison between the first Hell in a Cell match tonight and the next one. In the match that we just witnessed, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt merely had a battle. The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar will go to war; a war where there will be casualties. This is the final chapter by the way, and if you're keeping score, the only victory that The Undertaker has over my client is the tainted one that he claimed at SummerSlam. But there will be no mistakes tonight. The Brock Lesnar who defeated The Undertaker and conquered his undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30 was a beast that was under control. But after The Undertaker's 'victory' over Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, he now has to deal with a beast that has been unleashed, and will be out for blood. I guarantee you that these fans in Los Angeles are going to get double their money's worth, because not only will Brock Lesnar win this war, he will end The Undertaker's career. Bank on it!

Kevin Owens vs. Ryback for the Intercontinental Championship
[Seth Rollins is in the back with Triple H and Stephanie]
Rollins: I can't believe you're forcing me into this match. I mean Kane's a madman; he's unstable. Who knows what he's thinking of doing to me tonight.
Stephanie: Forcing you? Seth, you are the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Act like it! And you brought this on yourself. I mean you are the one who shattered Kane's ankle back in July. I mean can you really blame him that he's out for revenge?
Triple H: I mean seriously, Seth, when I was champion, I took on every challenger that was placed before me. And in fact, I've beaten Kane. You need to man up.
Rollins: Hunter, please, are you seriously comparing your world title reign to mine? I mean how many years ago was that? It's a different era now, and the challenges are much tougher. And as far as Kane goes, it seems like he's only gotten better over the years. But you know what Steph, you're right. I am the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and this title isn't going anywhere. The only thing that's going anywhere is Corporate Kane to the back of the unemployment line. But thanks for the pep talk, guys. I feel ready.
(Sheamus walks in and holds up the Money in the Bank briefcase)
Sheamus: So do I, fella!
(Rollins looks at Sheamus, and then back at The Authority, who both shrug their shoulders)
The New Day vs. The Dudley Boys for the WWE Tag Team Championships
Seth Rollins vs. Kane for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (If Demon Kane does not win the title, Corporate Kane is fired as Director of Authority)
After the match, Rollins raises the belt right in Sheamus' face, and it looks like they're about to brawl. So Triple H rushes to the ring to separate them, but Rollins keeps trying to taunt Sheamus. Triple H then shoves Rollins to the ground, and as he turns his attention back to Sheamus, Rollins hits Triple H with a low blow, and then acts shocked, realizing what he's just done. I don't know what to do with Kane at this point, but it already seems overbooked as it is lol, which is exactly what I'm expecting from the actual match.
[Up next, they show highlights of the Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 30]
Charlotte vs. Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship
After the match, as Becky and Charlotte are celebrating, Paige comes down to celebrate with them, but Charlotte shoves her away. They start brawling, which leads to both Team Bella and Team Bad entering the ring, to get involved in the brawl as well.
[Up next, they air highlights of John Cena's U.S. Championship open challenge in the last few months]
[Cena comes down to ringside]
Cena: So it's that time of day again. It's time for another U.S. Title open challenge! It was in this very city where I had my first U.S. title defense several years ago, and a successful one I might add. So hopefully, here in Los Angeles, you witness another successful title defense. So who's it gonna be?
[I heard Cena is taking time off after this pay per view, so I'm expecting a new U.S. champion here. I would say Tyler Breeze, who really needs a big win, after jobbing left and right on NXT in recent months, but he already has a feud with Dolph Ziggler going for him, so I'm not sure he really needs it. As the anticipation builds, the challenger is...the returning...Sami Zayn]

[The pay per view panel then delivers their thoughts on the night so far, and predictions for the main event]
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker in Hell in a Cell
After the match, as both men are struggling to their feet, they look each other in the eye, and it looks like they're finally about to put this behind them and shake hands, but Lesnar hits Taker with a low blow, and then gets in position for what looks like another F-5. Suddenly, the lights go out, and when they come back on, Sting is in the ring, with a bat, pointed at Lesnar's chest. Lesnar backs out of the ring, and to the surprise of everyone, Sting nails Taker with the bat, and drills him with a Scorpion Death Drop. Sting then stands over Taker, pointing the bat down at him, to close the show.
So there you have it.
Here are my match predictions for Survivor Series:
Seth Rollins vs. Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship - They've done a great job of coming up with compelling main events this year, and they really need something that's going to top the Undertaker vs. Lesnar match. I was thinking either this, or a triple threat match with the former Shield members, but I think that match they should save until WrestleMania or at least until The Royal Rumble, because I was originally thinking that it would be Seth Rollins vs. Daniel Bryan at Mania, but if Bryan isn't healthy enough by then, they need a back-up plan.
Team Reigns (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho and The Usos) vs. Team Wyatt (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Braun Stroman, Erick Rowan and Leo Kruger/Adam Rose) in a traditional Survivor Series elimination match
Team Sheamus (Sheamus, Rusev, King Barrett, Stardust and Tyler Breeze) vs. Team Kane (Kane, Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, Neville and Ryback) in a traditional Survivor Series elimination match - The dreaded feud between Sheamus and Kane has to happen at some point, and the story here is that Sheamus will blame Kane for costing him the WWE World Heavyweight Title, while Kane will blame Sheamus for costing Corporate Kane his job.
