WWE Hell in a Cell 2017: 5 potential finishes for Randy Orton vs. Rusev
At first glance, this match seems like too big of a deal to just be on the undercard of a B-level pay-per-view. In many ways, it belongs up the card in the spot reserved for the two WWE Championship contenders.
Considering that one of the men is a former US Champion and the other is a 13-time WWE Champion, this should have been a bigger match than it is. Unfortunately, both men are in a holding pattern in a non-title program before it's their time to shine. Therefore, they've been relegated to the position that they are currently in.
This is a very significant match, despite the fact that there is no championship attached to this one. It could elevate Orton back into main event status again. It could launch Rusev and give him the push that many have felt that he always deserved. It could be a dark horse match that could really steal the show.
Let's look at 5 possible scenarios of how this match will possibly play out, this weekend, at Hell in a Cell.
#5 Lana helps Rusev win
Rusev has not felt the same since they made him and Lana split up just a while ago. Lana's career did not really take off either, considering that she wasn't really very good in the ring. Moreover, her short-lived alliance with Tamina Snuka did not go anywhere either.
WWE may want to bring the two of them back together again. It would be really cool to have Lana come out to ringside and interfere in the match, helping Rusev pick up a big win. Lana is far better as a valet for Rusev than a companion for Tamina Snuka. Together, they could dominate the SmackDown Live roster again.
It would also protect Randy Orton in a way, since he would not lose the match clean, in this case. Rusev would have his moment, without Orton losing any steam.
Lana's not the only person who can interfere in this big match between these two megastars, though...
