WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks has spoken about the historic Hell in a Cell match between her and Charlotte Flair in 2016. The Boss revealed that WWE didn't even ask her if she wanted to be in the match.
Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair made history in 2016 when they became the first women to headline a pay-per-view as well as becoming the first women to compete in a Hell in a Cell match.
Stone Cold Steve Austin talked about Sasha Banks' first Hell in a Cell match in WWE, which took place in 2016 when she faced Charlotte Flair. This match made history as it was the first women's match to headline a WWE pay-per-view. Sasha Banks revealed that WWE didn't ask her if she wanted to be in the Hell in a Cell match.
"I've been in three (Hell in a Cell matches). It's intimidation, it's scary, it's a lot of things going in my mind. WWE didn't even ask me if I'm cool with it. They're just like, 'no, you're going to have it, you're going to do it,' and you're like, 'okay (laughs)'. Next thing you know you're finding out Mick Foley is going to do a contract signing with you, signing over that you're going to do a Hell in a Cell match, which is like, this is really WWE."
Sasha Banks said that the match was scary, especially for someone of her size. She spoke about the brutal nature of a Hell in a Cell match and said that she was nervous before the match.
