It was made official on tonight’s RAW that Rhea Ripley will be defending her RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair at Hell in a Cell. The event takes place on June 20. At the time of this writing the match has not been confirmed to be inside Hell in a Cell.
The match was made after Flair defeated Asuka on tonight’s show. Despite Asuka besting Flair last week and Nikki Cross defeating Ripley on RAW this week, Flair was the one to get the championship match.
Ripley and Flair have only met one other time one-on-one which was last year’s WrestleMania. Ripley walked into that match as NXT Women’s Champion and would drop the title to Flair after holding it for 108-days. The two have met in other matches that weren’t one-on-one. Most recently a Triple Threat that included Asuka at WrestleMania Backlash where Ripley retained.
