The Women's Revolution in the WWE has really kicked off in the past few years, but it may have taken a back step this year as we approach tonight's (Sun. October 8, 2017) Hell In A Cell pay-per-view (PPV) event.
Last year the WWE implemented a ton of first time matches for the women of WWE, as well as some matches that we rarely see women compete in. Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks competed in the first-ever female Hell In A Cell match as well as the first-ever female Falls Count Anywhere match. Over on SmackDown Live, Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss competed inside a Steel Cage for the brand's female championship.
As we journey on in the biggest era of female professional wrestling history, Superstars such as Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Becky Lynch continue to revolutionize the industry for women as the continue on with their spectacular careers.
Lynch was recently interviewed by Digital Spy to hype tonight's Hell In A Cell PPV, and commented on there being no female Hell In A Cell match this year. Despite this, Lynch doesn't think it's a back step for the Women's Revolution (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"No, I don't think so, personally. Say for example you had Bray Wyatt in Hell in Cell last year – I know he's not in our division, but if he's not in a Hell in a Cell match this year, it's not a step backwards.
"Not for him or for the brand or for the company. It's just a rotation. You can't overdo it, as well. Or do it for the sake of, 'Oh there's a Women's Revolution so they have to have a Hell in a Cell match.'
"I think that's grasping at straws and that's forcing things. Unfortunately, Charlotte and Natalya, they haven't had the longest storyline in this circumstance going into Hell in a Cell.
"Charlotte has a new character and Natalya has a new character and we're seeing a different element of both of them.
"To put them into a Hell in a Cell right off the bat, where do you go from there? So no, I don't think it's a step backwards at all to not have a women's Hell in a Cell match."
