We’ve talked a lot about the day, sometime in the future, when a match between two female wrestlers would be the main event of a WWE PPV. Well, it turns out the future is two weeks from now, as WWE has officially announced that Sasha Banks will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Charlotte inside Hell in a Cell, and that match will be the main event of the evening. It is a well-deserved reward for two of the best female wrestlers in the world, and a match that we can’t wait to see, no matter what Eric Bischoff thinks.
Here’s the official announcement, courtesy of Mick Foley on Facebook:
Forget for a moment about Stephanie McMahon’s jumping high-five or my awkward attempt to hug the #RAW Comissioner. 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.”
Of course, now we’re just extra worried that Sasha and Charlotte are going to do something stupidly dangerous to justify their position on the card. Stay safe, ladies!
