Make it a trio. We are just over two weeks away from Hell In A Cell, which is guaranteed to feature some matches inside the show’s namesake structure. This is one of those special treats that WWE only offers once a year and it means that they are going to want their biggest matches inside the Cell. WWE has already announced a pair of matches for the Cell, and now that number is growing.
There are certain matches that just belong inside the Cell and something with a long and deep history often fits that role the best. One feud that fits the requirements would be Bayley vs. Sasha Banks, which has been built up for well over the course of a year now, as they have gone from enemies to friends and back to enemies, all while Bayley has held the SmackDown Women’s Title. Now, things are coming to a head.
WWE has officially confirmed that Bayley will defend her SmackDown Women’s Title against Banks inside the Cell at Hell In A Cell on October 25. This comes after Bayley got herself disqualified in their title match on this week’s SmackDown, prompting Banks to issue the challenge. Bayley accepted overnight and the match has been made. This is the third Cell match on the card, following Jey Uso challenging Universal Champions Roman Reigns in an I Quit match and Drew McIntyre defending the WWE Championship against Randy Orton.
It was a long time coming. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: I can’t say this is the biggest surprise as the match has seemed to be a likely candidate for the Cell for a long time now. This is going to be the first major match of the feud and while I’m usually against the idea of starting in the Cell, that is what the feud calls for at this point. I’m not sure who wins though, as there is a chance that WWE can drag this out for a lot longer if they want to.
