            April Jeanette Mendez was born March 19, 1987, in Union City, New Jersey. She is of Puerto Rican heritage, and the youngest of three siblings. She describes her family’s experience while growing up as having to live in motels, other people’s houses, and their car. She cited her brother’s childhood interest in WWE as an influence on her decision to break into the male-dominated world of wrestling, and she cemented her ambition to pursue a professional wrestling career when she was 12 years old. She was inspired by the female WWE stars that came before her, especially Lita, whom she met as a child at an autograph signing. A video of the encounter, which shows the young Mendez being brought to tears by the meeting, has surfaced on YouTube.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2014 Predictions

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC__HOME_tag2_logos

The Usos vs. Gold & Stardust

           I always bet for the Usos to win ’cause I like them, they’re a total perfomers on the ring. But what I think is going to happen is that Team Gold & Stardust ill win this match, maybe by cheating as always.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_AJ_PAIGE_HOME

AJ Lee vs Paige

         Let me be honest with all of my readers, I’m actually tired of seeing these 2 faces again and again from previous pay-per-views. I want a new contender for the Divas Championship match or I want a new Divas Champion. WWE is missing other dominant divas like Natalya and Tamina snuka. But for my prediction for this match, I think AJ Lee will retained the title even Alicia Fox interferes the match.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Ambrose_Rollins_HOME

          Dean Ambrose vs. Seth rollins

            Dean Ambrose is my favorite crazy- played wrestlers. And I don’t like Seth Rollins since he left The Shield. So obviously, I’m betting for Dean Ambrose to win, and I think he will win this time.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Bire_Nikki_HOME

   Brie Bella vs. Nikki Bella

         This is the fakest storyline I have watched on WWE. Both Bella‘s have a worst acting, you can tell it too Nikki‘s voice sound and Brie‘s facial expression. Yeah I know, it was all just acting thing, but all I’m saying is that, they are not good actress’. But in this match, I think Brie Bella will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Cena_Orton_HOME

John Cena vs Randy Orton

           I’m one of the WWE viewers who are complaining about these 2 wrestlers who always have spotlight on the show. There are many superstars on the locker room, why are they always giving these 2 the spotlight? We all know that they are already popular and what’s best for business. But it is time to give the spotlight to others. But in this match, I think John Cena will win.

20141013_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Smaus_Miz_HOME

Sheamus vs. The Miz

          These are 2 of my favorite wrestlers. It’s hard to see any one to lose but this must have to happen. As for Sheamus losing the spotlight these days and The Miz having the spotlight, I think, the Miz will win this match.

20141023_EP_LIGHT_HIAC_Show-Russev_HOME

Big Show vs. Rusev

           I’m always excited when Rusev stepped in the ring. Every match he made in pay-per-view was awesome and this time against the Big Show, will be the “awesomest” match between USA and Russia. But I think, it’s time for USA to win, so Big Show for the win.
