The Undertaker has fought in more than a dozen Hell In A Cell matches in his career and was also one of two participants in the first Hell In A Cell match.
During his recent appearance on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions, the Phenom talked about a number of things, including his WrestleMania streak and more.
Speaking of Hell In A Cell, Dead Man revealed that the original reason for Hell In A Cell was Kane and the main reason they created the fight was to emphasize the Big Red Monster’s debut:
“The main reason for Hell in a Cell was Kane. It was all about Kane, it was all designed for Kane’s debut. You’re going to shut out all outside interference, and boom, here comes Kane. For Kane to come in and do what no one else could do, which was rip the door open and meet his brother face to face. I still think it’s one of the most iconic looks in history. It is a story that lasted 23 years and one of the best stories ever told. “
Kane made his debut during the PPV Badd Blood: In Your House in 1997. He interrupted the match between the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels and delivered a Tombstone Piledriver to Taker, allowing HBK to gain a victory over Dead Man.
Kurt Angle ‘retires’ from AEW Revolution debut
Kurt Angle has revealed that his teaser videos are for his podcast, not for AEW Revolution, as you can see below, which is why he withdrew from debut consideration. Christian had a meeting with a big name from AEW.
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is a veteran in the world of professional wrestling and spent two decades in the business, competing in various promotions around the world. Angle saw how WWE changed before his very eyes and it seems he doesn’t have the best opinion of all the changes.
While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show, Angle talked about his second WWE run in 2017. Angle criticized the company’s booking structure compared to how it used to be in the 90s and 2000s.
He noted that in the past, WrestleMania cards would have been finalized in December of the previous year. However, nowadays the WrestleMania cards are generally not gathered until the week before the event, especially mentioning WrestleMania 35.
“It was really hard to guess who was going to fight whom,” Angle said. “Things were not as orderly as in previous years. They usually have the WrestleMania cards no later than December, this one wasn’t ready for quite a while. I don’t think they got the whole card together until the week before. [WrestleMania 35]. “
Kurt Angle would have his last match in the ring against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania 35, where he would lose the match. Angle is currently enjoying his life outside of professional wrestling and he seems to be doing well.

Vince McMahon ‘canceled’ Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE
Vince McMahon canceled Bray Wyatt’s original WWE comeback match. Plans have been changing second by second in the WWE world for what seems like the last few months. Just when a story gets good, it changes to end it. It seems that the end is not in sight, as Vince McMahon has done it again with delays and changes in the things we expected.
At Wrestling Observer we have news about the upcoming Wrestlemania pay-per-view: “For WrestleMania, the lineup has Reigns vs. Edge for the Universal title and Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair for the women’s title as official matches. The Miz & John Morrison vs. Damien Priest & Bad Bunny.
WO continues: “Randy Orton vs. The Fiend, probably in a wacky stunt fight, would appear to be a sure thing since it was scheduled for Royal Rumble and backtracked. Asuka vs. Charlotte Flair seems to be on the show. It could be Braun Strowman versus Shane McMahon. The WWE title match certainly looks like Lashley versus Drew McIntyre. However, Vince McMahon decided this week that the show needs to be bigger and exploit the original ideas and how else we can use everyone, so people are looking forward to changes next week to the original lineup and direction. “
My take on all of this is that I love wacky stunt matches. It’s not too childish, but I want a show. With the death of Kayfabe; The only thing that draws me back is when WWE does something out of this crazy world.
Christian ‘reunion’ with big AEW name revealed
Is Christian going to be “All Elite”? On the Squared Circle subreddit, one user is certainly adding more fuel to that fire, as one user, named kick_heart, quoted a Wrestling Inc article documenting the fact that Christian has met with AEW President Tony Khan a couple of times, and how excited I was. hear about AEW. it should be noted that Christian no longer has a contract with WWE.
Christian stated: “” Well, I have met [Khan] a few times, ”Christian recalls. “I met him, curiously, through Chris Nowinski, actually. And, yeah, I had a little lunch with Chris Nowinski and Chris brought him in and he told me about things in games that I had that I don’t even remember happening. I mean, that’s how fanatic he is and he just wanted to talk to me about wrestling. And I was a little bit more interested in the soccer side, so I talked to him about soccer and he kept trying to change the subject back to wrestling, and I kept trying to get back to soccer. Anyway, at one point in the conversation, I tried to convince him to fire his general manager and hire me as the general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yes.”
The legendary superstar concluded: “Yeah, it’s pretty big,” Christian said. “Well, I mean, obviously, they have the money for it, right? I mean, [if you own an NFL franchise] and also a football team in England. [Khan] obviously has a passion for [pro wrestling]. Having spoken to him before, he is a fanatic. And you have ambitious young guys like Cody and The Young Bucks involved and you saw the success they had with ALL IN. So like I said, it’s very ambitious, but all the luck to them. It’s never a bad thing to have places for guys to go out and apply their craft, boys and girls. ” Christian was “pulled” from a proposed match at WWE Fastlane.
Members of the Squared Circle subreddit reacted to this development in the same way, as Mysterious_Option_55 proclaimed that it is now certain that “Captain Charisma” will appear this Sunday at AEW’s Revolution pay-per-view event. The Reddit user stated: “I am convinced at this point that he is a Christian. He is the only” HOF worthy “free agent signing out there that is still in somewhat decent shape that probably wouldn’t be a disappointment. Not to mention follow-up / unfollow stuff with the AEW employee and Moxley’s recent comments on him. “
Christian is confirmed to have been approached by an AEW executive. This person concluded by saying, “Vince has never seen anything in Christian. Glad they were able to do you a favor at Rumble with Edge, but it looks like that’s all they saw go or made you a low offer. One of the two. Wish him the best of luck at AEW. It’s a good answer. “
