UPDATE: Just hours after Foley posted on his Facebook page that Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks would be the main event of the upcoming Hell in a Cell PPV, he has commented on his post and said that the match order for the event has yet to be finalized, so it is not a guarantee that the RAW Women’s Title Hell in a Cell match will be the main event of this show. Foley posted this:
“The match order for #HIAC Will probably not be finalized until hours before the actual show, so each member of the WWE Universe can decide for themselves what their main event is. Regardless of where the women’s match is placed on the card, both Sasha and Charlotte should absolutely feel like they are the main event – as should Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins. It’s a competitive business, and that competitive spirit should bring out the best in everyone on October 30th.”
ORIGINAL: WWE will make history at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event later this month. WWE Hall of Famer and RAW GM Mick Foley announced on his Facebook page that Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks in a RAW Women’s Title Hell in a Cell match would headline the HIAC PPV event. This will mark the first time that a women’s match will headline a WWE PPV event. Foley posted this:
Forget for a moment about Stephanie McMahon’s jumping high-five or my awkward attempt to hug the #RAW Commissioner. The biggest moment of the night for us came when the #WWE cameras were off, and Stephanie and I just looked at the #HIAC poster, realizing that for #WomensWrestling, history is upon us – as Sasha Banks and Charlotte will main event the #HIAC PPV. I am so happy for Sasha, for Charlotte, for all the women who paved the way, and all those who aspire to follow in their footsteps. It is no exaggeration to say that looking at that poster gave me chills…and they were multiplying.”
