King Of The Ring 1998 ' date=' Mankind vs Undertaker , Brilliantly entetaining and also kind of worrying :) , Im sure some others will agree[/quote']

 

1.Undertaker vs. Mankind-How can anyone forget the fall Mick Foley took from the top of that cage? And the drop through the top of the cage was just as vicious. The best Hell In The Cell ever.

 

2.Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels-Even though Shawn won it(Thanks to interference from Kane) He paid a big price at the hands of the Dead Man.That match was brutal.And the fall Shawn took was almost as brutal as Mankind's.

 

The Other Hell in The Cell matches wasnt bad.But these two were among the best IMO.

My vote went on Taker vs Bossman, but my girlfriend chose it as she likes the Bossman! I would have gone for HHH vs Cactus!

ive gone with HHH and cactus only because after seeing micks 2 falls against taker i dont really remember much else of the match but his match with hunter was brilliant and i remember nearly all of it.

I choose the Undi/Mankind match simply for the spectacle. For no matter how smart we are, or think we are, I defy anyone to expect Mankind to be thrown from the cell like that. JR's emotion in calling that match, the crowd's reaction, Terry Funk involved, Vince coming out looking REALLY concerned. Mick's standing ovation at the end. It was all good. The 1st was also great, from Taker simply destroying HBK, throwing him Powerbomb stylen into the corner of the cell. The cameraman being hit, HBK's piledriver of Taker on the steps. Undi sitting up and staring at Michaels after SCM. And.....Kane making his debut. It was close, but not quite.

 

There was also a great one on RAW that was Austin/Taker vs Kane/Mankind. That was wild, Stunner on Kane on the roof. It is the forgotten HIAC.

 

And as a little side note, it was Jim Cornette who came up with the idea, so big thanks to him also.

The first was really the best from a wrestling standpoint, but the Taker vs Mankind one just had so much drama and huge spills, tacks and everything else, it has to be voted as the best for me.

The first two were the best two by a mile. It's hard to choose between them for me. Both had so many awesome moments in them. They really were two special matches.

 

As I found it so difficult to choose I voted HHH Vs Nash.

Taker/Mankind for me. I watched it live and when I saw Foley take that HUGE bump off the cage, if I'm honest, I thought he'd killed himself when he landed. And when Mick got off the stretcher and climbed back up the cage, I marked out big time! This is one of my favourite matches of all time, not only for the action but because the build-up to it was first rate.

I voted Mankind vs. Undertaker, when Mick fell was one of the biggest mark out moments for me, but it was difficult because I loved the first one. I also liked the 6 man at Armageddon.

taker and mick one was great since it showed how much punishment mick could take during his wwe carrer.but the one i truly like was cactus jack vs triple h.

As for Mankind/Taker I'm pretty shocked that everyone considers a couple of disturbing bumps to constitute a match let alone a great one.

 

Well it has to be said that i don't think it is wise to see wrestling as a true sport all the time. Yes it was a gimmick match and yes the wrestling was of a lower standard than Taker vs HBK. But for spectacle it was awesome. I have always been and always will be a foley fan but my tastes have matured and now i find myself prefering to slip Super J 94 into the VCR rather than Cactus Jack deathmatch compilation tapes. But at the same time i think it is always good to go back to the spectacle. To have that small amount of time where you can be sucked right in, glued to the screen and suspend disbelief and be completely in awe of what can be made possible by the very few who are completely talented in the performance stakes. Mick, Rock, Foley etc i'm sure would never dream of comparing themselves to the great technicians of the times but yet be it vicious bumps, stone cold stunners or a ridiculous looking elbow i really enjoy switching the brain off for a while and enjoying the performers for what they are, great story tellers with the ability to make you really care about an angle or a match.

So for me it has to be Foley vs Taker as i can still remember seeing it for the first time and the emotional rollercoaster that was in my opinion the best Hell in a cell.

(p.s. as a subnote the 6 man at armageddon..... was it just me or did rikishis fall off the cage into a truck full of padding suck?!)

What's the difference between this and say New Jack vs Vic Grimes ? Is that a better spectacle because Grimes took a bigger bump ?
you're comparing two of the greatest storytellers in the ring using psychology to make us care about a bump, to two useless heaps of meat who can't wrestle falling off a scaffold, or just one of them falling off a scaffold (depending on which match you're referring to) because that's the only way they can entertain people as they stink.

 

What is sick about being amazed at somebody putting their body on the line like that? Foley didn't foolishly take any bump, he no doubt knew that he was defining his place in history and leaving a legacy that would live on forever. How can you watch that match and suggest that it's not a spectacle?

 

The rest of the match was good, two wrestlers go into a ring and tell one hell of a story to the point where we're all completely sucked in. That's a good match.

 

The surprising thing was not that we all think it's a great match, but that you felt the need to say it surprised you. Have you been under a rock since that match happened? It gets talked about all the time so whether you liked it or not I find it hard to believe that you were genuinly surprised that people regarded it so highly.
