WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has commented on his infamous Hell In A Cell match with The Undertaker on the bout’s 24th anniversary.
As long-time wrestling fans – or anyone who has seen enough memes – will know, the 28th of June 1998 is a day that will live in infamy as that was the day Mick Foley met The Undertaker in a Hell In A Cell match at the King Of The Ring pay-per-view.
As Mankind, Foley had been a thorn in the side of The Undertaker since entering WWE on the day after WrestleMania 12 in 1996. Despite introducing WWE fans to Boiler Room Brawls and Buried Alive matches, it is their Hell In A Cell bout from the summer of 1998 that has lived longest in the memory for two very big reasons.
Those reasons are the massive falls Foley suffered in that match with The Undertaker launching Foley off the cell and launching his career to new heights as a result. The second scary bump came later in the bout with Mick Foley somehow continuing after his first fall.
The Undertaker lifted Foley up for a chokeslam on top of the cell and the metal gave way with the Hardcore Legend suffering a landing in the middle of the ring that knocked him out.
Taking to social media, Mick Foley has celebrated the 24th anniversary of when The Undertaker gave him flying lessons:
“24 YEARS AGO TODAY What were you doing on June 28, 1998? I was taking flight lessons, courtesy of @undertaker Thanks to all of you who have shared this magic moment of time, and made it an iconic part of wrestling history.”
