Mick Foley: Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte to main event WWE Hell in a Cell


It appears that WWE will be making history at Hell in a Cell.

Mick Foley announced in a Facebook post on Tuesday morning that Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte is set to main event Raw's upcoming pay-per-view later this month. If the match does main event, it would be the first time that a women's match has gone on last at a WWE PPV.

Banks vs. Charlotte will also be the first ever women's match to take place inside of Hell in a Cell. Banks will be defending her Raw Women's Championship against Charlotte in the match.

Foley's Facebook post: "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 #HIAC poster, 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."

Hell in a Cell is scheduled for October 30th in Boston, MA.

UPDATE: Foley posted a clarification on Facebook, noting that the match order for Hell in a Cell is not yet final: "The match order for #HIAC Will probably not be finalized until hours before the actual show, so each member of the WWE Universe can decide for themselves what their main event is. Regardless of where the women's match is placed on the card, both Sasha and Charlotte should absolutely feel like they are the main event  -- as should Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins. It's a competitive business, and that competitive spirit should bring out the best in everyone on October 30th."
