Hell in a Cell was introduced 25 years back at Badd Blood: In Your House in October 1997, and since then, it has been a regular on WWE’s calendar. The Undertaker, Triple H, and Mick Foley have been involved in some of the best matches. Here are the top 5 best Hell in a Cell matches.

5. Kurt Angle Vs. The Undertaker Vs. Rikishi Vs. The Rock Vs. Triple H Vs Steve Austin – Armageddon 2000

This was one of the best matches for the fans as this was the only six-man Hell in a Cell Match for the WWE Championship. It consisted of one of the biggest superstars of that Era.

Kurt Angle defended his title against The Undertaker, Rikishi, The Rock, Triple H, and Steve Austin at Armageddon 2000. The spilled action encounter turned out to be a blockbuster for the fans. 

This Match is best remembered for Undertaker throwing Rikishi off the top of the cell. All the stars put on some fantastic performances, and the Match ratings went sky high. In the end, Kurt Angle retained the Championship.

4. The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar- No Mercy 2002

Brock Lesnar was on a dominant run in 2002 when he first arrived in WWE and dethroned The Rock to become the new WWE Champion at SummerSlam. However, the next superstar he faced was not an easy one, The Undertaker. After that, it was a Hell in a Cell at No Mercy.

The Young Lesnar did a fabulous job of hanging on to someone to the structure of Deadman. Undertaker had a broken hand but still managed to perform high. This was one of the best Hell in a Cell matches.

3. The Undertaker vs Triple H – WrestleMania XXVIII 

The Game and Undertaker are legends of the game and are two of the most prolific performers in the history of Hell in a Cell match. During Triple H’s clash with The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXVII, the game became the first man to clash with The Deadman three times at WrestleMania. 

As the special guest referee, Shawn Michaels made the game a blockbuster. Both Triple H and Michaels tried their level best to break the streak and came very close, but in the end, they couldn’t break the unbeaten streak.

2. Triple H vs Cactus Jack- No Way Out 2000

Cactus Jack, aka Mick Foley and Triple H, had one of the most hardcore matches in the history of Hell in a Cell. These two rivals had some high stakes in the Hell in a Cell match at No Way Out 2000.

This was a heavily intense contest between two experience contenders. It became more interesting as The Game’s WWE Championship was on the line and Cactus Jack’s career was also at stake. Several weapons were involved, and Triple H put Foley into retirement with a Pedigree in the end. The Match got a standing ovation.

1. Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker- Badd Blood: In Your House 

Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker always had some of the best matches in the history of WWE whenever they came face to face. The same was the case when they faced in the inaugural Hell in a Cell match at Badd Blood: In Your House. It is arguably the most excellent Hell in a Cell match of all time.

Michaels played the heel role perfectly, and with Undertaker being at the top of his game, you are bound to see a special one. The Heartbreak Kid fell off the side of the cage, and Undertaker was in complete control until Kane made his debut. Michaels won the match and faced his rival Bret Hart for the WWE title at Survivor Series 1997.
