Worst Win/Loss Record
Winning a Hell in a Cell match is not an easy task, especially when you are facing the likes of The Undertaker and Triple H, two of the most prolific guys in the match's history. WWE Hall of Famer, and himself a Hell in a Cell legend, Mick Foley learned this the hard way, as he holds the infamous record of the worst record in the history of Hell in a Cell match.
Under his more popular personas of Mankind and Mick Foley, Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy was part of 4 Hell in a Cell matches and failed to emerge victorious in all of them. He first lost, along with Kane, to the team of Undertaker and Steve Austin on an episode of Raw in 1998. This was followed by the loss to The Undertaker in that universally known match at King of the Ring 1998 and a no contest against Kane on Raw two months later.
His last appearance, as Cactus Jack, ended in a loss to Triple H in a Career Threatening match for WWF Title at No Way Out 2000, giving him a record of 0 wins, 3 losses and 1 no contest in 4 appearances. Closely following Foley at second place is a surprising name in the Prodigal Son himself, Shane McMahon, who has 3 losses in 3 appearances to his name. Despite that horrendous record, Foley's matches against Taker and Triple H are considered as two of the best matches in the history.
