Use of the Cell and/or Foreign Objects: 4.5
Overall Match Score: 19.5
One of the most iconic matches of all time. Not a single Hell in a Cell afterwards has surpassed the mainstream popularity of this bout. The first few minutes of this match are pure slugfest material between the two combatants. Just moments after the the two men get underway on the roof of the cell, Mankind is shoved off that roof, crashing through the Spanish announce table. That moment was unexpected and unseen for its time.
The Undertaker remained on top of the cell as Terry Funk, Vince McMahon, Sgt. Slaughter, EMT's, and the other officials checked on Mankind. For five and a half minutes, it appears the match is over, Mick Foley is unable to continue.
Mankind then rolls off of the stretcher he was placed on to help in carting him towards the backs, he decides he's not done and breaks free to climb up to the top once more. It wasn't but a few moments later that the biggest bump of the match unexpectedly happened.
The Undertaker choke slammed Mankind on top of the cell, the top gave way and Mick Foley plunged down to a thud inside the ring. To top it off, there was a chair on top of the cell with him. It fell alongside, the leg of the chair smashed into Mick's mouth causing some substantial damage.
You could tell the severity of the situation with the speed that the trainer ran into the ring to attend to Foley. The Undertaker looked on from the broken hole in the top of the cell. (You can see a picture of this on the first slide.) He soon decided to end the match himself.
After jumping down into the ring, he chokeslammed Terry Funk who was in the way of his goal. Somehow, the match continued. A chair was used to its fullest thanks to Mankind. A piledriver, followed by a leg drop to the chair covered face of the dead man. A few thumbtacks, a choke slam, and a tombstone piledriver later and we have The Undertaker in the record books as victor of this historic war.
