WWE officials are gearing up for the upcoming Hell in a Cell PPV.
According to Cageside Seats, there are rumors that former Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will be beating Natalya for the SmackDown Women’s Title at the upcoming No Mercy PPV (pay-per-view) event.
An indication of the possible title change is because Natalya made Flair tap out during their tag team match on this past week’s episode of SmackDown Live Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center on the USA Network. Keep in mind that this is just a rumor for now and that plans change all the time in WWE.
Flair has taken the WWE by storm since being called up to the main roster in 2015 during the Women’s Revolution storyline. She has won championships both in NXT and on the main roster. Flair is still trying to find herself while competing on the blue brand as a babyface.
The Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event takes place on October 8th, 2017 in Detroit, Michigan at the Little Caesars Arena and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. This will be an exclusive SmackDown Live brand event.
For the majority of her career, she has worked as a heel. However, when WWE decided to trade her to SmackDown Live earlier this year during the Superstar Shakeup, they turned her to a babyface. This is an interesting move by the sports entertainment company as they need more female talents on the blue brand.
Although it has yet to be confirmed, the belief is that Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens
in a Hell in a Cell match will headline this event while Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title will co-main event this show. Here is the updated card:
--- WWE Title Match: Jinder Mahal © vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
--- Hell In A Cell Match: Shane McMahon vs. Kevin Owens
--- SmackDown Tag Team Title Hell In A Cell Match: The New Day © vs. The Usos
--- SmackDown Women’s Title Match: Natalya © vs. Charlotte Flair
--- United States Title Match: AJ Styles © vs. Baron Corbin
--- Singles Match: Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler
