WWE will be making history tonight at Hell in a Cell.
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.
Speculation over which match would main event Hell in a Cell grew earlier this month when Mick Foley seemed to announce in a Facebook post that the Raw Women’s Championship match would go on last, but he later clarified that the match order wasn’t yet finalized. WWE then began promoting Hell in a Cell as featuring a “triple main event” with the show’s three Hell in a Cell matches.
WWE hasn’t yet promoted that Banks vs. Charlotte will main event the show on television or online.
Meltzer reported in last week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there were internal discussions about which match would go on last, with Vince McMahon “digging his heels” on the match not main eventing the show. But Meltzer noted that McMahon often changes his mind and nothing was final.
Pro Wrestling Insider first reported on Sunday that the match was set to go on last.
