WWE are set to make history at Hell In A Cell in more ways than one… It was announced this morning by Mick Foley on Facebook that the first ever Women’s Hell in A Cell match featuring Hall of famer Ric Flair’s daughter, Charlotte and WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks, will not only take place at the PPV but will actually Main Event it!
Off the back of a monumentous episode of Raw, where we saw the return of Goldberg after 12 years, WWE Hall of Famer and Raw General Manager, Mick Foley posted the following on his Facebook page:
Forget for a moment about Stephanie McMahon’s jumping high-five or my awkward attempt to hug the #RAW Comissioner. The biggest moment of the night for us came when the #WWE cameras were off, and Stephanie and I just looked at the #HIACposter, realizing that for #WomensWrestling, history is upon us – as Sasha Banks and Charlotte will main event the #HIAC PPV. I am so happy for Sasha, for Charlotte, for all the women who paved the way, and all those who aspire to follow in their footsteps. It is no exaggeration to say that looking at that poster gave me chills…and they were multiplying.
For both Sasha and Charlotte this is huge, and a pinnacle for Women’s wrestling. Women in WWE have long been laughed at as nothing more than glorified models there to make up the numbers. But, nowadays these ladies are proving once and for all that they do have the talent to compete alongside the biggest male stars in their industry.
It is an accolade for both women which is so richly deserved, and we just hope that they are able to live up to the expectations placed upon their shoulders.
Hell In A Cell takes place on Sunday 30th October 2016, live on the WWE Network (which you can still purchase for only £9.99.)
