Mick Foley commemorates 24th anniversary of iconic WWE Hell in a Cell match
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took to Twitter to celebrate the 24th anniversary of his iconic Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker at King of the Ring 1998.
During the bout, Foley, as Mankind, was thrown off the Cell’s roof onto the announce table by The Deadman. He was then chokeslammed through the top of the demonic structure into the ring. The match and its visuals have become so iconic that people are still talking about it more than two decades later.
In a recent tweet, the veteran thanked fans for making the match an iconic part of the wrestling industry.
“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,” Mick Foley wrote.
