When Sasha Banks faced Charlotte at Hell in a cell, the entire WWE fan population was in a frenzy. This was because these women were the first female performers in the history of the company to perform in that particular sadistic structure. In addition to this, the duo also made history by being the first women ever to main event a WWE PPV (pay per view).

However, despite the significance of the fixture, Dave Meltzer of F4online, said that Vince McMahon was not particularly impressed with the way it ended and blames Sasha for the encounter’s botched finale. 

Banks was ideally supposed to first go through the table and then later get pinned with the Natural Selection. However, during the match, Charlotte tried to put Sasha through the table twice but to no avail.

As per Meltzer, the botch can only be blamed on the fact that the table did not break because Banks didn’t weigh enough to go through it, like a 200-pound wrestler taking the same bump, would have.

While a lot of people, mainly her supporters, felt sorry for Sasha, another demographic thought that Charlotte was capable of a lot more. Many WWE fans were disappointed at the fact that Sasha lost her RAW Women’s Championship on her home ground.

However, others felt that the match had successfully delivered a fantastic finale.

Meltzer also reported that McMahon was completely behind the idea of Charlotte winning the match, even though the match was held in Sasha’s hometown. This decision was made at the very last minute since the original plan was to make Banks retain her Women’s title in front of her fellow Bostonians.

However, the only thing that is not clear is what made Vince McMahon change his mind about the match ending.

The ongoing speculation is that McMahon wanted to move towards a Charlotte vs. Bayley title feud sooner than later, as scheduled earlier. However, until it’s completely confirmed, the conspiracy theories on the issue continue to do the rounds.
