Triple H did for Batista what Mick Foley did for him.
At the end of 1999, Triple H was on the cusp of being a full-time main event star. He would win the title in the beginning of 2000 from the Big Show, but he still was not an established superstar as he is today.
Enter Mick Foley. Cactus Jack made his return to pro wrestling and delivered two brutal matches with The Game. The first was the Royal Rumble street fight in Madison Square Garden, and the second was this apparent retirement match inside Hell in a Cell.
The Game brutalized Foley, putting him through an announce table and through the roof of the cell. This time, however, the ring was rigged to ease the fall. Still, it was a ridiculous spot, and it took another pedigree to win the match.
Because of this match, and its predecessor at the Rumble, people took Triple H very seriously, and he developed into one of the most hated heels in history. This is one of the best Hell in a Cell matches of all time because of the story it told and the brutality that ensued.
Foley would return soon after, but it was still an emotional night for the veteran. Just like he helped the Rock the previous year, Mick helped to make another star.
Because of this feud, the Cerebral Assassin was born.
