Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel vs. Big E Langston (Kickoff Match)

John Clapp: You just get the sense that Big E is waiting for his big moment to break out, and this could be it. Curtis Axel has all the technique in the world, but Langston’s brute force — coupled with an intense desire to prove he’s more than a “marginal rookie” — might be too much for the third-generation grappler. WINNER: Big E Langston

Alex Giannini: Okay, confession time: Big E scares me. Terrifyingly strong and shockingly agile, the big man is going to be a major contender for the WWE Title at some point in his career. His road to greatness starts at WWE Hell in a Cell, and unfortunately for Curtis Axel, the third-generation Superstar will prove to be a (moveable) roadblock. WINNER: Big E Langston

Jake Grate: After defending his title against R-Truth and Kofi Kingston in recent weeks, Curtis Axel finds himself with a “big” challenge at WWE Hell in a Cell. The monstrously strong Big E Langston might be the most powerful Superstar in WWE, and he figures to be particularly fired up for his first Intercontinental Title Match. The “Heyman Guy” loses, and we have a new champion on Sunday. WINNER: Big E Langston

Anthony Benigno: Big E Langston talks a fearless game and walks the walk to back it up, so he’s certainly rugged enough to wallop Axel into defeat. That said, to beat a “Heyman Guy” means one must also outsmart Paul Heyman himself, and Langston’s still too new to the game to pull that one off. WINNER: Curtis Axel

Mike McAvennie: Curtis Axel will start out strong this Sunday, but expect the WWE Hell in a Cell Kickoff Match to have a Big Ending, and a new Intercontinental Champion in Langston. WINNER: Big E Langston

Big E Langston: 4, Curtis Axel: 1
