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 Big Four Project officially becomes the Big Five Project here on Episode 292. It’s the Attitude Of Aggression and it is time to return for another installment in the chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s now Big Five PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys cover King of the Ring ’93. In the wake of the disaster that was WrestleMania IX, WWE rebounded in a huge way with the first ever PPV version of the King of the Ring Tournament. After being screwed out of his title in Las Vegas, Bret “Hitman” Hart would complete a legendary hat-trick en route to becoming the first, and only, back-to-back KOTR winner. The guys cover all that, including a watch along of the epic Semi-Final match between Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect. KOTR ’93 was also significant as it marked the official end of Hulkamania as Yokozuna emphatically reclaimed the WWF Championship from Hulk Hogan. All that plus Shawn Michaels retaining the IC title against Crush. King of the Ring ’93 was clearly the best PPV of 1993 for WWE (by a wide margin) and the guys have all the details for you here on another epic edition of the Big Five Project!

Attitude Of Aggression #291- The Big Four Project: WrestleMania IX

The guys review quite possibly the worst WrestleMania of all-time, as Yokozuna wins, and then loses, the WWF Championship all in the span of 5 minutes!

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 face their ultimate challenge…. making WrestleMania IX interesting. Regarded by many as the worst WrestleMania of all-time, the guys do their utmost best to break the event down and to try and make sense as to how and why it was booked as badly as it was. WWE got the location right for WrestleMania IX, but everything else was very wrong. Filled with frustrating non-finishes, matches being made up on the fly, double Doinks, chloroform filled rags, and a bizarre finish done for the sole purpose of getting Hulk Hogan (of all people) over, WrestleMania IX was very bad indeed. The guys do find a few gems here and there though. Is it enough to salvage this event from the lowest level of WrestleMania hell? Join us here for to find out plus much more on another epic installment of The Big Four Project!
