Well I have been watching wrestling for 15 years now. Although WWE is scripted and the results are made by script writers i still like the action in the ring. I want to share some of the greatest and most brutal matches I’ve seen:
- WWE King of the Ring 1998 – The Undertaker vs Mankind(Hell in a Cell)
No one would forget the moment when Mankind was thrown from the top of the 15 feet high cell onto the floor. The match was stopped for 5 minutes after Mankind’s fall. But he managed to recover and get on top of the cell again only to be choke-slammed by the Undertaker through the cell roof onto the mat below. The resilient Mankind fought bravely until he was choke-slammed on top of hundreds of thumb tacks, then a tombstone pile driver finished him off. The Undertaker was dominant throughout and won.
- WWE Armageddon 2000 – 6 Man Hell in a Cell match for WWE Title.
Stone Cold, Triple H, The Undertaker, The Rock, Rikishi and Kurt Angle battled inside Hell in a Cell which according to me is the most brutal match in WWE. Superstars battled everywhere, from the top of the cell to the parking lot to the ring side area. During the match Undertaker choke-slammed Rikishi from the top of the cell onto the truck below. After a lot of twists and turns Kurt Angle won.
WWF Armageddon 2000 – 6 Man Hell in a Cell Match – WWF Championship – Kurt Angle vs Rikishi vs The Undertaker vs The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Triple H by TerryTheTitan
- WWE Survivor Series 2002 – WWE Title match inside Elimination Chamber
First ever Elimination Chamber match which turned out to be more brutal than Hell in a Cell. Six superstars battled inside it – Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Kane, Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam and Booker T. Michaels eventually won.
- WWE Bad Blood 1997 – The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels(Hell in a Cell)
First ever Hell in a Cell match. Michaels was in for a severe beating at the hands of Undertaker who in those days was just so strong physically and almost unbeatable.Almost till the last moment Michaels received a lot of punishment who in those days(before his 4 year absence) was extremely resilient and athletic. Battle spilled to outside the cell. Michaels eventually won after the shocking debut and outside interference of Kane.
- WWE No Mercy 2002 – The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar(Hell in a Cell)
A brutal and bloody match. Never seen Undertaker bleed so much in a match before though he was not a 100% due to a fractured right hand. He was lying bloody and motionless after the match and had to take time-off for injury for 2 months. Brock Lesnar was THE most dominant superstar in WWE at that time until a contract dispute made him leave WWE forever.
- WWE Fully Loaded 1999 – The Undertaker vs Stone Cold(First Blood match)
When Undertaker and Stone Cold battle its always exciting. Both men bled profusively during and after the match filled with lot of action and interference from Triple H, Shane and Vince McMahon and The Rock. Stone Cold won even though he bled first but the referee failed to notice it.( as a part of the script)
- WWE Summerslam 2002 – Triple H vs Shawn Michaels(Non-sanctioned Street Fight)
One of the best matches I’ve seen. Every weapon that was available was used, tables, ladder, chairs, sledge hammer. Michaels took a hell of a beating. Was his return match after 4 years of absence and he won after a superkick knocked out Triple H.
