WWE hosted Hell in a Cell last night with Monday Night Raw superstars taking centre stage, and it was certainly a night to remember.

Going into the pay-per-view, it was being billed as a triple main-event type night. Three cell matches and every title on the line.

Roman Reigns vs Rusev, Sasha Banks vs Charlotte, and Seth Rollins vs Kevin Owens were the three matches that were contested inside the demonic structure, but heading into the event, there was still some uncertainty.

There was no confusion regarding Reigns vs Rusev for the United States Championship, but heading into the PPV, it wasn't known where Banks vs Charlotte would be placed on the card, nor was it 100% known who would be walking out as the Women's Champion.

In fact, going into Hell in a Cell, WWE were adamant that Owens vs Rollins would be closing out the show, but according to NoDQ, that plan was change when someone backstage got Vince McMahon to change his mind a day before the event.

It was well documented that McMahon wasn't keen on the women ending the PPV, but on Saturday he finally changed his mind, moving Owens and Rollins to the middle of the card.

That wasn't the only late change made, however.

According to the same report, WWE initially had Banks to retain her title against Charlotte, but that was also changed so that the company could push forward the Banks vs Bayley match.

Officials eventually decided on Charlotte winning so that Banks vs Bayley could happen sooner, with the initial plan seeing them meet at WrestleMania 33.

However, it's now believed that match will happen a lot sooner.
