Every October, WWE presents its annual Hell in a Cell Pay Per View. Before that, though, the gimmick match was used infrequently to settle the most heated of feuds. And obviously, it left us all with one of the most jaw dropping matches in WWE history when The Undertaker and Mankind battled in the third ever Hell in a Cell match at the 1998 King of the Ring PPV, when Mick Foley almost died — twice.
Anything can happen in the world of pro wrestling, and that’s just talking about the scripted action. When you add in the element of live television (or being part of an arena crowd), the potential for something unplanned is even higher. And no matter how careful the WWE (or other promotions) are, sometimes things go wrong in the middle of their shows, for a number of different reasons. It could be an injury that changes the path of an entire storyline, a performer going rogue, or some other unforeseen disaster.
