It was announced this past week on Monday night Raw that Sasha Banks and Charlotte will once again make history when they collide inside Hell in a Cell for the first time in less than three weeks.
This comes just a week after the former NXT Women's Champions became the first women to main event an episode of Raw since Trish Stratus and Lita more than a decade ago.
Whilst many of the WWE Universe are anticipating what will be a hard-fought battle between these two rivals, former Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff thinks that the match will turn out to be a disappointment for both women.

WRONG KIND OF MATCH?
On a recent episode of his podcast Bischoff on Wrestling, the former wrestling personality stated that he did not like the idea of the match at all.
"I don’t like it at all. I don’t like it. The standard for Hell in a Cell is pretty high. It physically is what it is. It’s a hardcore match. It’s an extreme match. It’s all of the above and then some. I’ve talked before about expectations and managing expectations with the audience.
Bischoff continued: "Sometimes you can do such a great job building something up that you forgot to remember that you also have to deliver. I am not taking anything away from either of those athletes that happen to be women. I am suggesting that the audience may not necessarily want to see that type of entertainment and that type of match out of that type of an athlete. That’s just my opinion.“
Eric Bischoff isn't the only person who thinks that a Hell in a Cell match between these two women could be a bad idea, social media responded to the announcement by asking if it was too much too soon for the two talented females.
Sasha and Bayley made history by being a part of the first ever Iron Woman match at last year's NXT: Takeover Respect, the match received rave reviews afterwards but failed to live up to the match that the duo had just weeks before at NXT Takeover Brooklyn.
The problem here is that much of the wrestling world isn't optimistic enough to think that these women can step up their game for such a marquee match, but negative comments will only spur them forward and help them create history in style on October 30th.
