Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte to take place inside of Hell in a Cell


Sasha Banks and Charlotte will be making history at Hell in a Cell.

It was announced on Monday night's edition of Raw that Banks and Charlotte's previously scheduled rematch at Hell in a Cell later this month would be taking place inside of the structure the show is named after.

The match will be the first time two women have ever faced off in a Hell in a Cell match. Dave Meltzer originally reported in last week's edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the match was set to take place inside of the cell.

The rematch between Banks and Charlotte was confirmed on Sunday night's No Mercy pay-per-view broadcast, but it wasn't announced then as explicitly being a Hell in a Cell match.

In the opening segment of Raw, Banks cut a promo challenging Charlotte to the match. Charlotte eventually accepted after the segment was interrupted by Rusev and Lana. Raw General Manager Mick Foley later confirmed that the match was officially set.

Foley also announced that the pay-per-view would see the addition of a third Hell in a Cell match, with Seth Rollins challenging Kevin Owens for his Universal Championship. But Stephanie McMahon noted that if Chris Jericho defeated Rollins on Monday's Raw, Jericho would earn his way into a triple threat title match at the PPV.

It was also announced on Monday's Raw that Cesaro and Sheamus would challenge The New Day for their Raw Tag Team Championship on the upcoming PPV. The two were forced to team together after earning the title shot by ending their best-of-seven series in a stalemate.

UPDATE: Rollins defeated Jericho in Raw's main event and it will remain a singles match at Hell in a Cell. It was also announced that Brian Kendrick would challenge TJ Perkins for the Cruiserweight Championship at the PPV.

Hell in a Cell is scheduled for October 30th in Boston, MA. The current card for the show is:

  • WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens defending against Seth Rollins in a Hell in a Cell match
  • Raw Women's Champion Sasha Banks defending against Charlotte in a Hell in a Cell match
  • United States Champion Roman Reigns defending against Rusev in a Hell in a Cell match
  • Raw Tag Team Champions The New Day defending against Cesaro & Sheamus
  • WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins defending against Brian Kendrick
