SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Ric Flair told “Busted Open” on Wednesday that there were two big potentially dangerous spots planned for Sunday’s Hell in a Cell PPV main event between Charlotte and Sasha Banks.
“They took two huge spots out of the match, during the match, because they thought Sasha [Banks] was going to get hurt. If the original plan had been, there were two things and I don’t want to say what they were, but you can only imagine. One of them involved a moonsault.
“You gotta be careful and draw the line. They kicked each other’s match. It was brutal. During the body of the match they decided to change things around. Sasha is light and they couldn’t break the table toward the end. Vince wanted to be sure that nobody – and I totally with what they did to make sure they both came out safely.”
Keller’s Analysis: Facsinating. It sounds as if it was Vince McMahon’s call, and if that’s the case, good for him. That also explains, perhaps, why when they ended the match, it felt flat to a lot of people – because the match was building toward two other big spots that were scratched.
