5 of The Undertaker's best Hell in a Cell matches
October 08, 2017, will see the 9th annual Hell in a Cell PPV. Since being given its own show, the Hell in a Cell match has lost some of its lustre, but when it is done right, it is still one of the best stipulations in wrestling.
Since it's inception in 1997, there have been 36 matches that have taken place inside the cell. Due to the violent nature of the match, it became a staple of the Undertaker's repertoire, and he ended up being involved in 14 of those 36 matches.
These matches range from all-time classics to the worst match on the card, and it's not surprising that the matches that felt like they belonged in the cell are the ones that have fared the best. With that being said, here are the Undertaker's top 5 Hell In A Cell matches.
#5 The Undertaker vs Edge - SummerSlam 2008
The Undertaker and Edge had a feud that ran through much of 2008. This was their fifth PPV match of the year and the previous matches included an excellent encounter at WrestleMania XXIV and a TLC match at One Night Stand.
By losing the TLC match, the Undertaker was banished from the WWE but he would be reinstated as a punishment for Edge after it was discovered that the Rated-R Superstar had cheated on Smackdown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. Vickie then announced that Edge would face Undertaker inside Hell In A Cell.
Undertaker went straight after Edge and the action spilt to the outside, with Edge being rammed into the cell wall. Back in the ring, the Undertaker tried to use the ring steps as a weapon but Edge countered and got a foothold in the match.
Edge went to what he is most comfortable with, bringing tables, ladders and chairs into the ring. He worked Undertaker over with a chair before putting him through a table with a chair-assisted elbow drop from a ladder. They fought back to ringside and Edge would hit a spear through the cell wall.
The broken cell wall allowed for brawling on the outside and Edge took advantage of this by spearing Undertaker through the announce table. Undertaker fought back and Edge retreated to the ring.
Edge attempted to perform Old School but he paid for it as it was countered into a chokeslam through two tables at ringside. That was the beginning of the end for Edge. Undertaker hit a Con-chair-to, followed by a Tombstone and picked up the victory. After the match, Undertaker chokeslammed Edge from a ladder and through the ring to cement his dominance.
It is an excellent match featuring great performances from both men. Undertaker's feud with Edge is often overlooked but it provided a number of excellent matches.
