This is what I grew up on.
Wrestling matches that were settled in "themed events" many coming from the fertile mind of Dusty Rhodes. Many of them conceptually seen as part of Georgia Championship Wrestling of from the Florida based CWF with Gordon Solie behind the desk and some wrestling talent giving commentary.
Yes, these matches are the ones etched in my mind as those that mattered.
And yes, these matches needed to be decided in Hell in a Cell.
I agree that HIAC is a great concept if it is used right, but not if it is some knockoff of a fruitless feud between two mid-card wrestlers or better yet, divas who cannot perform at a high rate of success.
But these matches could have worked in any wrestling generation.
Here are some matches I would have loved to have seen in today's PPV format.
