  • The Hell in a Cell Match was simply awesome.

    Rarely does a match come along that is so amazing, so pivotal, that both the winner and the loser have this match on their respective DVDs. That's exactly the case for the Hell in a Cell Match between Mankind and The Undertaker.

    The match started on the roof of the cell, and soon found Mankind being thrown off of the roof through the announcers table. The cell was raised with the Undertaker still on top, so that Mankind could be taken out on a stretcher. Halfway down the aisle, Mankind got off of the stretcher and climbed back up the side of the cell to the roof. After a couple of minutes of fighting on the roof, Undertaker delivered a chokeslam to Mankind, which saw Mankind fall through the roof of the cell and down to the ring. Undertaker jumped down to the ring and the match continued. Before the match ended Mankind would be chokeslammed onto thumbtacks and end up with hole pierced in his lower lip and a tooth up his nose.moreless
