Published 06/20/2021, 12:30 PM EDT


We’re a couple of hours away from Hell in a Cell, and we’re about to witness a gigantic WrestleMania rematch. Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair was one of the unfortunate matches that featured on the first PPV with no fans. This week, they will once again wrestle in front of zero fans in the last PPV of the ThunderDome era.

At WrestleMania 36, Charlotte Flair shockingly beat Rhea Ripley to become a two-time NXT Women’s Champion. Flair was so good that Ripley was no match for her. After twenty minutes of brilliant back-and-forth action, Flair made Ripley submit to the Figure Eight.

Almost a year later, Flair returned to Raw after WrestleMania 37 to confront Ripley, now the Raw Women’s Champion. She received a shot at the title at Backlash, but Ripley pinned Asuka in a very entertaining triple threat match. Now, Flair gets another shot at the title and the opportunity to become a ten-time Women’s Champion.

However, Rhea Ripley is hell-bent on not allowing that to happen. The loss at WrestleMania 36 is a lone skid mark on an otherwise perfect WWE career of the Aussie. Ripley has been excellent since winning the Raw Women’s Champion, beating Asuka in dominant fashion not once, but four times.

The Raw Women’s Champion took to Twitter to make a defining claim before the biggest rematch of her life. She stated that history won’t repeat itself, and she will walk out of the ThunderDome and into the new era of WWE with the Raw Women’s Championship in stow.

This Sunday, Charlotte Flair has the opportunity to register her name in the upper echelon of women’s champions in WWE. However, she will be the only member in that category as the only ten-time Women’s Champion in the company.

No one has come close to touching her level of greatness, and she’s already surpassed the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James and even the legends of the 80s and 90s like Chyna, Alundra Blayze, Bull Nakano and The Fabulous Moolah.

Standing in her way is a formidable young champion hellbent on creating her own legacy in wrestling. By pulling off a win, Ripley can cement herself as one of the top female stars in pro wrestling. But a Flair would be a historical moment in WWE and pro wrestling history.
