WWE News: Ric Flair discusses the Hell in a Cell main event
The Nature Boy considers the closing bout as the match of the night
Ric Flair was a part of the latest edition of Busted Open, with Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca. The WWE Hall of Famer shared his thoughts, about the recent Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
His daughter, Charlotte, won the RAW Women’s Championship for the third time, by defeating Sasha Banks at the event. Not only was that the first case of two women competitors battling in the Hell in a Cell structure, but it was also the first time, a match from the women’s division closed the show.
Flair commented that none of the other matches on the card could have outshone the Women’s Championship match. Hence, he applauded the decision of Vince McMahon to put the match between the Charlotte and Banks in the main event.
The Nature Boy revealed that WWE removed two spots from that match. According to Flair, the decision was made during the bout as ‘they’ didn’t want Sasha Banks to get injured. He added:
“If the original plan had been [done], there were two things and I don’t want to say what they were, but you can only imagine. One of them involved a moonsault.”
Ric Flair also praised the in-ring expertise of Charlotte. He considers her to be the best wrestler, man or woman, working for WWE. Moreover, Flair believes that Charlotte deserves to be compared with the likes of Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Triple H and AJ Styles.
“There’s nothing she can’t do, anything that they can do, she can do.”
The Hell in a Cell match was set up, between the two women of the red brand, because Banks had defeated Charlotte to win the Championship in the main event of the edition of RAW. Take a look at the match-up here:
