Hell in a Cell Predictions: AJ Lee vs. Brie Bella for the Divas Championship

Tonight at Hell in a Cell, AJ Lee puts her title on the line against Brie Bella. Will Brie continue her meteoric rise with a title win? The Diva Dirt team weighs in:

Bobby: I pretty much went into detail about this match at last month’s prediction thread, so I’m going to make this one short and sweet so I don’t risk repeating myself. I love AJ and Tamina together. I love the babyface Bella Twins. I’m excited for this match. As much as I want Brie to become the next Divas Champion, I think AJ Lee retains after Nikki accidentally costs Brie. Following the bout, Nikki will then officially turn on her sister and join the dark side. I know people think lengthy feuds are boring as we get the same match over and over, but I really like this one and with the possibility of inserting heel Nikki into the mix, it could prolong the storyline but give it another element to keep it from getting stale. Personally, I would have it, from here, lead to a 5 on 5 Survivor Series match, then Brie getting her crowning moment at TLC in December in a match with Nikki and Tamina banned from ringside. AJ would be viewed as a dominant champion by having such a long reign, and it would make Brie’s win all the more sweet after seeing her constantly fall to AJ’s tricks and backstabbing. I know I said I’d keep this short, but I guess I lied. Whoops.

Chris: I’ve really enjoyed the build up to this match, much more so then the build up to Battleground. Brie Bella is in the prime of her career right now, and so is AJ Lee. These two have proven they work really well together and I expect a great match, but I think there’s gonna be a twist this time around. I’m picking AJ Lee to retain after a surprise double cross from Nikki Bella.

Cryssi: Honestly, this match is a toss-up. It could go either way with all the outside things factoring into it. There’s Nikki and Tamina, and there’s the McMahons’ hatred of Brie’s beau, DB. I’m not sure what is going to happen. I suppose I’m just going to go with what I want to happen. At this point, Brie doesn’t need the Diva’s Championship to maintain her momentum. The championship is all AJ has going for her because she’s become so stale. A lot of people think AJ could benefit more by dropping the title and I’m inclined to agree. That being said, I’m not convinced it’s going to happen. I see AJ Lee walking out champion when all is said and done, and going on to feud with Nikki and Brie both, because Nikki will ultimately cost her sister the championship tonight. Good God, I hope I’m wrong.

Eleri: It has to Brie, doesn’t it? AJ’s title rain has been great, mainly at the beginning, but I do feel it’s time she dropped the belt, and who better to take it than Brie Bella? She’s had a very good few months. I pick Brie Bella for the next Divas Champion. And then I think Stephanie will strip her of it and put it back on AJ, or vacate it, or put it on Aksana. Or claim it for herself and demolish the silly butterfly design. I digress. Brie Bella is my pick for winner.

Erin: I honestly can’t remember what exactly my prediction was on Diva Dirt Weekly, but when I think about it now, I just don’t see AJ losing, especially given how Brie has had the upper hand recently. Sure, AJ won on SmackDown, but that was against Nikki, which might play into a Nikki heel turn anyways. A lot of people are predicting that Nikki will turn heel, but they differ on how and why it will happen. I think Nikki will thwart Brie’s attempt to win the title, allowing AJ Lee to retain. This plays into the Administration conspiracy to keep the good guys down, brings Nikki into their stable and gives AJ the opportunity to play the tweener role – using the Administration’s help to keep her belt, but not playing into their game, eventually becoming the true target of Stephanie McMahon‘s ire.

Jack: So far in this feud, Brie’s just been looking at the Divas Title, yet tonight’s she’s going to touch it! Well, at least in my hopes and dreams she will. I’ve been really impressed with Brie’s in-ring work as of late and I am enjoying her face character a lot. Whilst most expect a Nikki heel turn tonight, I’m going to go against the grain and predict a Brie Bella win.

Katelyn: I have predicted the demise of AJ Lee several times before and this time is no different. Although AJ has been a great champion, I firmly believe that this is Brie Bella‘s moment.

Steven: Ok, so I know I said Brie was going to win the title at the last PPV, and I truly thought she was, but she lost. However, now that the rivalry is being revisited, there’s no way that Brie can lose tonight. I expect Brie Bella to win the title tonight, and officially aligning with a newly crowned Daniel Bryan, to fight against The McMahons’ reign of terror.

BREAKDOWN: 4 for AJ, 4 for Brie.

Who do you agree with? Who is just dead wrong?
