There has been a lot of talk surrounding Sunday’s Hell in a Cell PPV event.
Aside from Sasha Banks defending her Raw Women’s title match against Charlotte in the first-ever women’s Hell in a Cell match, there was also initial talk that this match would serve as the main event event for the PPV. However, that idea was shortly retracted, leaving fans to wonder if the women would indeed close out the show.
A new report from The Wrestling Observer (via Cage Side Seats) suggests that while most backstage (including WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque) are in favor of seeing the Women’s title match close out Sunday’s show, the main voice against this is WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
Vince is currently dubbing Hell in a Cell as a “Triple Main Event” special, which include three title defenses inside the cell:
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Rusev (w/ Lana) for the US Championship
- Kevin Owens (c) vs Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship
- Sasha Banks (c) vs Charlotte for the Raw Women’s Championship
Although there is currently no official word as to which match will be booked last on Sunday, the report further notes that the women’s title match headlining the event is “not likely to happen”.
