The WWE is set to go through just their second pay-per-view event for Raw since the brand split. With that in mind, there was still much mystery about what match would close it out. According to the Wrestling Observer, the WWE has decided to roll with the title match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte.
In addition to Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte being the first ever women’s Hell in a Cell match, Dave Meltzer reports that the plan is for the match to main event the show. It would be the first time a women’s match has ever gone on last at a WWE pay-per-view.
It had been reported last week that the company had made this decision to go with this match. However, there was some internal pushback from Vince McMahon with that choice. It appears that Triple H was able to convince McMahon to stay with that match.
This will be the first time that the WWE will have women compete inside Hell in a Cell. It could be a monumental moment for the women’s division that could further progress the women’s movement in the business. More importantly, it could open up way to more main event matches feature women superstars.
