WWE Hell In A Cell: WWE SD Women's Championship - Natalya (c) VS Charlotte Flair
Charlotte made her return to WWE on last night's SmackDown Live after being away several weeks to be by her father's side due to health issues that were pretty touch and go for a little while. After winning a Fatal Fourway match, she earned the right to face Natalya for the title at HIAC.
From an in-ring perspective, this has the potential to be a really strong match as they've had decent matches in the past and tore it up in NXT. Inside the ring, they're probably the two most technically sound on the entire main roster and are fully capable of putting on a show stealing match if given the time.
As for the build of the match, you can almost sense it's going to be a dueling "my family is the greatest of all time" stuff that's been a central aspect of their past interactions. It's not exactly fresh, but it'll do fine if they keep it simple and on point.
As to who walks out, I'd rather se Nattie retain the title for a while. Natlaya is sort of the mom or big sister to the women of the main roster and it's a role she's had for a long time. She spent most of her career, especially in the dark days of women's wrestling in WWE, putting over far less capable women like Melina, Eve Torres, Maryse and Kelly Kelly because being bimbos was more important at the time than being a good wrestler. So I have no problem with her having the spotlight as champion for a while. With that being said, I expect Charlotte to win the title at HIAC as it just seems like the type of thing Vince would prefer. Charlotte's already been a 5 time champion on the main roster and, along with Sasha Banks, has been the centerpiece of women's wrestling on the main roster since coming up from NXT so I just see her picking up the win.
