Hell in a Cell is merely days away and it boasts a main event, with the stipulation of facing WWE World Heavyweight Champions Brock Lesnar.

The only problem is, Brock Lesnar is not defending his title on Pay-per-view until the 2015 Royal Rumble, where it has already been announced he will be facing John Cena.

Is this a possible spoiler for Sunday's match? Could John Cena be walking out victorious and the two having a few months build up to what would be an ultimate showdown?

A lot of fans will not be happy if this is the case, with Randy Orton on the verge of a face turn and many backing him to get the win and turn on The Authority this weekend, there was hope that he would be the one to take on the beast.

Orton on the rise

The Vipers popularity has sky rocketed lately thanks to RKO vines that are taking over the internet. Randy himself has been sharing them on his Twitter page and seems to be enjoying the attention. 

If he does turn face this Sunday, it may be because Seth costs him his match with Cena and that is how Cena gets the opportunity at Lesnar, but it's really bad booking from WWE.

Last time Lesnar was seen in WWE he was completely dominated by John Cena at Night of Champions, he was also set to appear on this weeks go home episode of Raw but instead Paul Heyman stepped in. Brock is the champion, he is the guy on top in the WWE and if he isn't on the show people forget about him and his matches lack build up.

Future plans

The RKO to Heyman this week on Raw looked like the message Randy was sending to Brock that he would get the chance to face him at Hell in a Cell, but it seems because Brock isn't going to be booked for neither Survivor Series or TLC, Orton wont be given the opportunity.

If his next appearance is in 2015 and he does face John Cena one more time, it will leave a lot of fans disappointed, WWE need to understand that fans have already seen the match twice, nothing has changed this time, because Cena wont beat Brock because then he will tie Ric Flair for 16 World title reigns and Brock will go on to defend at Wrestlemania. So why can't Randy be handed the opportunity?
