For many years, HIAC was built around two men, the Undertaker and Triple H. It was their speciality and pretty much every match featured one of them, so when it came to having a HIAC event, it was simple. Have Undertaker fighting one match, have Triple H fighting one match and then have the other title match featuring the two biggest stars fighting in the hottest fued of the year.

Last year, we had Undertaker fighting Kane, bringing the entire HIAC concept full circle, and HHH wasn't present. This year will be the first event where neither HHH or Undertaker will be involved in a Cell match and it looks like, in the future, we probably won't be seeing any more matches involving them, which leaves a gap.

There's no-one left who can now be associated with HIAC, so who should be the next person to make their name synonymous with HIAC matches? Orton's halfway there, but is there anyone else you think should become the next generation of HIAC specialists?

I don't think anybody would want to be associated with the overhyped and nonsensical whored out mess HITC has become. When somebody was put in a cell match against HHH or Taker and they said that they were never the same when the match was over, it was 2 million % believable. Nowadays they don't even use the damn cell or any weapons. The match is a fucking joke and nobody will be able to build a legacy for themselves in it because of that.

^ Nice shout Mister Hands, Mcintyre in a proper HIAC with long term build and feuding could make for a hell of a spectacle given his astute wrestling mind and aggression...plus it would mean the guy could actually make freaking TV once in a while.

Depending on how he progresses, Dean Ambrose (Jon Moxley for any indy fans) down in FCW so long as he keeps the dark/mysterious character could really become a staple of the match especially with how he can make feuds personal and hate filled as well as his character work during a match.

Then again given how watered down and hollow the Cell matches have become not only in the way they're structured (when was the last time a Cell match featured a spot that you could say defined it as 'the most dangerous match in the company?) but also in their build up and diminishing level of hatred between the Cell opponents I'd say Creative should become the next Cell specialists in just how to make the thing fresh and worthwhile again.

I say Randy Orton should be the new King of the Cell since he has won 2 Hell In A Cell matches, and he has only lost 1 and that was against Taker, but now that Orton is a Viper, the Cell should be like his playground where he should feel at home
