Randy Orton could best Drew McIntyre in WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 to win WWE Championship

Randy Orton

With WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 just around the corner, all eyes are now on the bumper main event that will see current WWE champion Drew McIntyre defend his championship against Randy Orton inside a steel structure. At this juncture, the odds are stacked against Orton but he might manage to come out on top besting McIntyre. Here are a few reasons why:

  • The whole storyline of McIntyre vs Orton has now been dragging on over the last several months; it is now time for this to end meaningfully. McIntyre could dominate like he has in Summerslam and Clash of Champions, but with victories over Orton in both the pay-per-views (PPVs), the latter could best McIntyre in all probability.
  • The match at Hell in a Cell represents the third straight encounter between the two superstars. With a 2-0 record, McIntyre could well be on the receiving end this time despite a splendid performance inside the four sides of steel. Orton could win this third encounter and thereby become a 13-time world champion to cement his legacy amongst the greats of the company. His legend-killer image could potentially receive a huge boost with this victory; hence WWE could give him the win.
  • Orton could well be feuding with Edge at Wrestlemania 37 and this feud could be momentous with a title being on the line. Here, it is worth noting that Edge was put out of action by Orton at Backlash this year. Rumour mills are now rife about Edge returning at Royal Rumble in 2021 and even winning the event to feud with Orton a final time and win the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania. This is significant and would offer a mouth-watering contest for fans. Hence, Orton besting McIntyre on 25 October is a strong possibility. This match could well be amongst the bests in WWE Hell in a Cell history and cement the “Hall-of-Fame” worthy careers of both Orton and McIntyre.
  • McIntyre could feud with the likes of AJ Styles and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt establishing himself as a top face in the company and then capture the championship again next year to solidify his position. This could propel him to the league of Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, and Ric Flair. This is certainly not an exaggeration.
