WWE News: Sasha Banks vs Charlotte is part of a "Triple Main Event" at Hell In A Cell

Is the WWE trying to save face or did Foley let the cat out of the bag?

One-third of the main event?

Mick Foley announced on Facebook last week that Sasha Banks vs Charlotte would be main eventing Hell In A Cell. However, less than 24 hours later, the Raw General Manager retracted his statement.

It appears that given that the Pay-Per-View has three Hell In A Cell matches, WWE is now going to advertise the show as one with a “Triple Main Event”. This first started when Chairman Vince McMahon sent out a tweet yesterday:

This may be an attempt by WWE to save face after having previously mentioned that the women will be main eventing.

They are now at a stage where “The Main Event” is whatever they want it to be, and not necessarily what goes on last.

For example, at No Mercy, the WWE World Championship Triple Threat match went on first (to counter the Presidential debate that happened shortly after) and they still kept advertising it as “the main event going on first”.

They even counted that as a main event for John Cena who now supposedly has the most number of PPV main events in history, being one more than The Undertaker and Triple H.

Given that they are now going to call the women’s Hell In A Cell a “main event” regardless of the order, it is likely that the order of the fights could be Roman Reigns vs Rusev, then Sasha Banks vs  Charlotte and then Kevin Owens vs Seth Rollins.

Last year, Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt Hell In A Cell match went on second, but the PPV main event was Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker in a Hell In A Cell match. 

The build-up to the PPV itself has not been the strongest, but many are under the belief that the women should be the ones main eventing the show, given the fact that the PPV takes place at Sasha Banks hometown of Boston, Massachusetts. 

Sasha Banks is going to make history this coming Sunday with Charlotte. She recently posted saying that she wants to be in the Royal Rumble match next year at the Alamodome.
