22 Years Ago Today, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker Competed In The First Hell In A Cell Match

22 Years Ago Today, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker Competed In The First Hell In A Cell Match

On this day, October 5, in 1997, Hell came to the WWE. 

After the feud between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker intensified, thanks to the Showstopper inadvertently costing the Deadman the WWF Title at Summerslam, a match between the two was set at the In Your House: Bad Blood Pay Per View.

Unlike any match prior, this bout would see both competitors locked inside a roofed cage, with no escape from each other, and weapons encouraged.

Though the first Hell in a Cell match was sold on the idea of no escape, the two combatants quickly did just that, though it'd be Michaels who fell from the side of the cage, crashing to the ground below.

Back in the ring, the pair would continue to wage a war, though when it seemed The Phenom had the match won, some untimely actions by his brother would cost him dearly. 

Making his debut, Kane would rip the Cell door clean off, and attack his brother, allowing Michaels to get the unlikely win. 

Also on the show, The Godwins would capture the WWF Tag Team titles, Owen Hart would claim the vacant Intercontinental Championship, and the show would be Vince McMahon's last Pay Per View as a commentator. 

With this win, the Heart Break Kid would earn a WWF title match against Bret Hart at that year's Survivor Series, and we all know what happened on that fateful November night in Montreal...
