Sasha. Bayley. Hell in a Cell.

It’s official.

It’s been a long-time coming. And we do mean a loooong time. But it’s happening.

Sasha Banks issued the challenge after Bayley got herself disqualified in their SmackDown Women’s title match last night (Oct. 9), and the champ has accepted. Along with a promise to do something neither of The Boss’ previous Hell in a Cell opponents could do...

Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair did manage to beat Sasha, though. So when Banks again makes history on Oct. 25 by becoming the first woman to compete in three Hell in a Cell matches, she’ll also be attempting to pick up her first win in the unforgiving, fully enclosed steel cage. If she does, she’ll claim the blue brand’s top title for the first time in her career.

The Blueprint was selected to stay on SmackDown during Night One of the 2020 WWE Draft. We’ll find out if her former best friend will be staying on Friday nights with her when the final picks are made on Monday night.

Either way, they have a date with destiny - and pain - at Hell in a Cell.

This makes three Cell matches set for the ThunderDome later this month. They’re the only ones currently official for the card:

- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso in a Hell in a Cell “I Quit” match for the Universal championship

- Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre (c) in a Hell in a Cell match for the WWE title

- Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks in a Hell in a Cell match for the SmackDown Women’s championship

Excited to finally be getting Sasha vs. Bayley in a match that will almost certainly end with a clear winner?
