WWE News: Odds For Brock Lesnar Vs. Undertaker At ‘Hell In A Cell’ Released — Who’s The Favorite?
On October 25, live on the WWE Network, the nearly two-year long rivalry between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will finally come to an end when the two future WWE Hall of Famers face each other inside Hell in a Cell.
The announcement of the match came as somewhat of a surprise, as most people expected the final match between Lesnar and Undertaker would take place at WrestleMania 32. But Vince McMahon, as he often does, decided to change his mind and have the match take place earlier.
Undertaker was able to get the win over Lesnar back at SummerSlam, but his victory didn’t come without controversy, as Undertaker took advantage of a distracted referee and was able to get Lesnar to pass out in the Gogoplata, A.K.A Hell’s Gate.
The finish of the SummerSlam match was designed to keep both Brock Lesnar and Undertaker strong heading into their third and final match. There were some who didn’t like the finish, however, WWE did what they needed to do to keep the feud interesting.
Before it was announced that Brock Lesnar and Undertaker would be taking place at next month’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, most assumed that Undertaker would end up defeating Lesnar at WrestleMania 32. But, now that WWE has decided to go to the match early, it’s looking like Lesnar will walk away with the win in their third, and final encounter.
The betting odds for Hell in a Cell have been released, and they’re strongly suggesting that Brock Lesnar is going to defeat The Undertaker, as he’s listed as a -400 favorite over “The Deadman,” who’s listed at +200.
It’s possible that WWE could book another screwy finish to setup a fourth match between the two at WrestleMania 32. But a Hell in a Cell match is usually a feud ending match, so Undertaker and Lesnar will likely have a clean finish.
Undertaker and Lesnar have faced each other inside Hell in a Cell before, as the two did battle in the structure back in October of 2002, which was Lesnar’s rookie year. At the time, Lesnar was the WWE Undisputed Champion, and was undefeated, and Undertaker was not able to break “The Beast’s” undefeated streak in their match at No Mercy 2002.
Lesnar’s undefeated streak was broken just one month later at Survivor Series, however, when he lost to Big Show in Madison Square Garden, after Paul Heyman turned on Lesnar.
This Saturday night, Lesnar goes one-on-one with Big Show at Madison Square Garden once again, but the finish will certainly be different as it’s pretty much a guarantee that Paul Heyman won’t screw Brock Lesnar out of a win over Big Show yet again.
The build towards Undertaker and Lesnar at Hell in a Cell will begin after this Saturday’s WWE Network special at Madison Square Garden, but the two men won’t be appearing on RAW until just six days before the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, as WWE is advertising them for the October 19 episode of RAW.
Brock Lesnar is set to do an interview with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin immediately following that episode of RAW, which has led many to believe that Lesnar and Austin will be facing each other at WrestleMania 32. However, Austin is denying that he’s planning on making a comeback, and he’s promising that his interview with Lesnar will be just that, an interview, and that he’s not having Lesnar on his show to build up a comeback match at next year’s WrestleMania.
So, what does the future hold for Brock Lesnar? Who will he face at WrestleMania 32? Those questions are yet to be answered. But, that hasn’t stopped WWE fans from speculating, and they’ll continue to speculate until WWE has announced “The Beast’s” WrestleMania opponent.
