Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair (Raw Women's Championship Match)

The Nightmare is coming to WWE Hell in a Cell, and The Queen will be waiting.

Rhea Ripley will look to look to secure a reign-defining win when she puts her Raw Women’s Title on the line against Charlotte Flair. Ripley secured WrestleMania glory with a hard-fought win over Asuka, but Flair was incensed to not be included in the Show of Shows’ festivities and has targeted Ripley ever since.

Flair has offered lobbed insults at the Raw Women’s Champion in recent weeks and let her know she’ll be waiting to regain her spot atop the Raw Women’s division. The most recent run-in seemed to get the best of Ripley, as Nikki Cross bested her in a Beat The Clock Challenge much to the enjoyment of The Queen. Flair followed that up with a statement win over Asuka that put the champion on notice.

Who will emerge from the mayhem of Hell in a Cell as Raw Women’s Champion?

Don’t miss the title clash on Sunday, June 20 at 8 ET/5 PT on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network everywhere else.
