It should come as no real surprise that the women’s division in WWE is currently at the height of its popularity and has more talent than has been seen in a very long time. The NXT women coming up to the main roster over the past year have really changed things and turned it up many notches. As the division becomes even greater, that leads many to ask certain questions and one of them is if the battle for the WWE Women’s Title really main event Hell in a Cell?
On October 30, WWE will present their annual Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV), and there is no confusion as to some of the matches that will be on the card, but not everyone is certain about their order. So far, there are five matches on the card and on paper, it looks great.
Each of the five matches, confirmed as of this writing, are title matches and they’re all huge in their own right. One of the biggest is going to see Kevin Owens put his Universal Title on the line against Seth Rollins, and many feel as if that match is main event material.
The thing is, that match may not end up taking the final spot on the event, and some believe that is due to it not being inside the Hell in a Cell structure. Actually, it may not main event the PPV due to the fact that it is not being seen as the biggest match on the card.
A few days ago, Mick Foley posted on Facebook that Sasha Banks and Charlotte’s battle for the WWE Women’s Title inside Hell in a Cell would main event next Sunday. The wrestling world was thrown on its head as this huge proclamation was thrown out of them.

Fans were thrilled about this news and could not have been happier to know that Sasha Banks and Charlotte would be in the main event. It’s not like they don’t deserve it, but that excitement was very short-lived.
As pointed out by What Culture, just a few hours after making his original announcement, Mick Foley edited it. The general manager of Monday Night Raw took out the part about the women being in the main event and said that the final card won’t even likely be set until just hours before the event starts.
“Mick’s note: I have no idea which match will go on last, or which match will go down in history as being the official main event. The Universal Championship match between Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins is shaping up to be something special, and I am sure both men will be doing their best to steal the show – which is as it should be. In the end, the main event is whatever each fan decides it is.”
The only other match listed on the card that will take place inside the Hell in a Cell is the bout between Rusev and Roman Reigns for the United States Championship. That match, while huge, was never expected to main event the PPV.
Maybe Mick Foley jumped the gun and spoiled something that WWE wasn’t yet ready to announce. If that’s the case, and it causes Sasha Banks and Charlotte to not get the main event slot at Hell in a Cell, it is going to be a costly mistake.
On the other hand, maybe it was just something he thought would happen but was then informed otherwise. No one is really going to know until next Sunday as the matches unfold and the main event picture becomes clearer.
In a little over a week, WWE will present its next big event, and it will have the first ever women’s match inside the Hell in a Cell structure. That, in itself, is a big enough deal to watch the show and see how well they perform in the cage. The pressure is certainly going to be on both Sasha Banks and Charlotte as they fight over the WWE Women’s Title in the cage, but if they do end up in the Hell in a Cell main event, it will truly be an unprecedented night.
Now, if only Mick Foley could make up mind.
