Sasha Banks and Charlotte are set to go down in history as the first women to enter the unforgiving steel structure

WWE is set to create history, with the first ever women’s Hell In A Cell match, between Sasha Banks and Charlotte for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship. 

Hell In A Cell has been advertised to be a triple main event show. The other main events being, Rusev vs. Roman Reigns for the United States title and Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship.

However, with three main events, comes the debate over which match goes on last and closes the show. A large part of the WWE Universe and the WWE management are keen on giving this honour to Sasha and Charlotte.

Making it the main event certainly adds a tonne of prestige to the Women’s Championship, furthermore, it would also be the first time that two women close out a pay per view.

But is looks like WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon is not convinced to let the two women go on last. Although WWE has been hyping this match as a first of many great things to come for the women’s division, Vince doesn’t seem too keen on risking the fate of the pay per view just yet.

There is no doubt that Charlotte and Sasha Banks are two of the most talented performers in the RAW Women’s roster, but for the two to actually go on last, would be like stepping into untested waters for the WWE, and Vince might be apprehensive of this.

Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer reported that despite the fact that everybody wants Sasha vs. Charlotte to go on last, Vince might still pull the plug on this idea. Meltzer shared a quote, apparently from someone involved in the creative process that sums up the situation:

“And what everyone needs to understand, is that there’s no one who understands the outside less than the man who makes all the decisions. We just have to find a respectful way to change his mind.”

Whichever match goes on last and is the actual main event on Sunday, Sasha and Charlotte are guaranteed to put on a show, as they have done many times in the past. The duo tore the house down a couple of weeks ago when the two women main evented RAW, for the first time since Trish and Lita back in 2004. 


Hell In A Cell would be the perfect opportunity to add a new dimension to the women’s division by letting them close out the show. One thing is for certain, even if Vince does not let the Women’s Championship match go last, the day that two women headline a pay per view is not very far.
