Natalya vs Charlotte will be another first for the WWE women's division. Natalya is a grizzled veteran who's been around the WWE for years while Charlotte has a tremendous legacy behind her, but is still relatively young in her WWE career. Both have reached incredible milestones already, and on Sunday at Hell in a Cell on the WWE Network, both will set another ground-breaking benchmark that will be difficult for any other women to achieve.
At Hell in a Cell, WWE's next big pay-per-view, both Charlotte and Natalya will be the first and only women in WWE's history to compete against each other for four different women's championships.
It’s an honor for us to be making history as the first women in @WWE to compete for four different championships. Going into our match at #wwehiac on Sunday, as the Champion, is very special to me because it’s something I’ve fought relentlessly for 7 years to achieve. I plan on putting @charlottewwe through hell to remind her of why I am the best there is... was and ever will be. 👊
While their matchup at the pay-per-view on Sunday hasn't received a lot of attention, it is a very big moment for the women of the WWE. With no Divas title left to challenge for, this is also a feat that will likely never be repeated. Charlotte is the favorite to come out on top, but this may not be the only development.
Rumors are Carmella may play a role in this match and use her Money in the Bank contract to try and steal the title from whoever is victorious. Considering the stakes and the record that is about to be set, this is either a poor move, since the title and these women deserve the recognition for their contributions or a great way to get Carmella some easy heat after she steals the title.

Should the WWE move the title to Carmella, she should make it very clear on the following episodes of SmackDown Live that her intention was to steal the spotlight from these two competitors and that their milestone is nothing compared to how "fabulous" Carmella is and what she means to the women's division.
Then again, this is the kind of opportunity for an easy storyline that the WWE often misses.
No matter which way the WWE chooses to go, congratulations should go out to both Natalya and Charlotte. This is a pretty huge achievement, even if the WWE chooses not to talk about it much.
