Bianca Belair will defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Asuka at the Hell in a Cell Premium Live Event.
Asuka earned the opportunity to face Belair by defeating Becky Lynch in the main event of the May 16th edition of Monday Night Raw. The Empress of Tomorrow would hit the green mist onto Lynch while the referee was distracted, followed by a kick to the head of Big Time Becks to pick up the pinfall victory. At the time of writing, the match is being advertised as a singles match as opposed to a Hell in A Cell match.
It should be noted that the main event match was changed due to unexpected circumstances. The original number one contenders match was due to be a six pack challenge between Asuka, Becky Lynch, Doudrop, Nikki A.S.H., Sasha Banks and Naomi. However, following the news that Banks and Naomi walked out of Raw, the match was changed to a singles match between Becky Lynch and Asuka.
Hell in a Cell will take place on Sunday June 5th. The current announced line-up is as follows:
- Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka – Singles match for the Raw Women’s Championship.
- Seth Rollins vs. Cody Rhodes – Hell in a Cell match.
