With WWE headed towards the next Hell In A Cell event, Chris King looks back at one of the most chaotic: 6-men inside the Cell at WWE Armageddon 2000!

Over the past week, I’ve gone back and watched some of the most critically acclaimed Hell in a Cell matches of all time. Some of the greatest rivalries were settled inside the demonic structure such as Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte, The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar, and “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso, but one match stood out the most to me, it was a colossal six-man Hell in a Cell match at Armageddon 2000.

This was not only the wildest but also the most massive cell matches of all time. At the last pay-per-view of 2000, the WWE Universe watched Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, HHH, Kurt Angle, The Undertaker, and Rikishi beat the holy hell out of each other all for the richest prize in professional wrestling, the WWE Championship. The reason why this match was so important to me, was because at this time all of these superstars were main-event caliber talent.

During the Helmsley-McMahon era, we saw HHH ascend in the company with impressive wins over the likes of The Rock, Mick Foley, and a plethora of other superstars. We also saw the evil formation with Rikishi and HHH masterfully take out Stone Cold with a car. During this year, The Undertaker also traded his robe and eerie music for a motorcycle and an American Badass gimmick.

 

Kurt Angle was the current champion walking into Hell in a Cell, while all the other superstars were gunning for him. From the moment the bell rang, it was an all-out brawl between the melee of top-tier superstars. I’ve witnessed so many fantastic and chaotic matches labeled as a car crash but this one puts them all to shame. It was thirty-plus minutes of nothing but carnage and the WWE Universe was red hot for this cell match and rightfully so. One of the absolute highlights of the match saw Undertaker chokeslam Rikishi off the top of the cell onto a truck bed of hay. The big Samoan’s body made a loud thud as it hit the truck.

 

The ending was chaotic as HHH, Stone Cold, and The Rock were trading each other’s finishers. The Rock hit the Rock Bottom on Angle but the pinfall was broken up. Stone Cold hit the Stunner on The Rock but HHH broke it up. HHH delivered a spinebuster and neckbreaker on Stone Cold but Angle stole the pinfall to retain his title. This was the first and only time WWE would book to have many superstars inside the structure, and it made sense. There was way too much action to follow between all the superstars, but it is underrated.

As the road to Hell in a Cell continues to move forward, I strongly urge you to go back and rewatch this massive gem. Yes, it’s one of the craziest cell matches in history, but with all the star-studded talent involved it worked perfectly in my opinion.

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for another installment of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the calendar turns to 1993, a year of massive change in the WWE. We begin with Royal Rumble ’93. It is an event where the undercard outshone the actual Rumble match as we got two massive title matches with Shawn Michaels defending the Intercontinental Championship against his former tag partner, Marty Jannety, and Bret “Hitman” Hart defending the WWE Championship against The Bad Guy, Razor Ramon. The Rumble match itself is notable as this was the event that started the tradition of the Rumble winner challenging for the championship at WrestleMania. While there was no way the 1993 installment could hope to match the 1992 edition, Royal Rumble ’93 certainly announced to the world that Yokozuna had arrived….and was going to be a huge problem for the entire roster. All that plus behind-the-scenes stories and lesser-known factoids the Big Four Project famously delivers time and time again. Join us here for all that and much more on another epic installment of The Big Four Project!

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for another installment of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys cover Survivor Series ’92, an event that saw a radical departure from Survivor Series events of the past. With many top stars having departed the WWE in the Fall of 1992 (or having been fired), the 1992 edition of Survivor Series saw only one traditional Survivor Series match. But it did feature some firsts, such as the first ever televised Coffin Match in PPV history, the first time Mr. Perfect would wrestle a match since Summer Slam ’91, the PPV debuts of Razor Ramon and Yokozuna, and the first of three truly notable battles between Bret “Hitman” Hart and Shawn Michaels. Their match at Survivor Series ’92 was an instant classic and it was so good, that the guys decided to do a watch along here on this Episode! All that plus behind-the-scenes stories and lesser-known factoids the Big Four Project famously delivers time and time again. Join us here for all that and much more on another epic installment of The Big Four Project!
