for my first pick..
Shawn Michaels vs the Undertaker, Bad Blood '97 HELL IN THE CELL.. yes, I know about Mankind's infamous drop off the top, King of the Ring? My pick was a highly entertaining match, Michaels and Taker putting on a show for right @ 30 minutes.. the Debut of KANE was the cost of the match, leaves HBK with the sweet victory.. This fight's significance, it was the #1 contender match for Bret Hart at Survivor Series, Kane actually put the "Montreal Screw job" in motion.. lol wow... ;) It also was the very first Hell in the Cell matchup from Vinnie Mac..
R.I.P Brian Pillman, he passed away a day after this Bad Blood event..
well, I guess that's it.. o, hold on..
the UNDERTAKER needs to retire, I guess he just fights Wrestle Mania's.. lol

Just a small correction. Brian died the morning of Badd Blood. Vince announced it on the Free for all before the show started.
Anyway my first Cage match was Bret Hart vs Owen Hart at Summerslam 94.
Owen was battleing his brother in his first opportunity at a World Championship on a major Pay Per View. The match was for the most part a very technical match. I really enjoyed watching these two face off. The suplex off the top of the cage by Bret on Owen goes down as one of the most seen moves of all time. It may not have been the biggest stunt of all time. But the two had such great chemistry, it made for a classic steel cage match.
In my opinion the Hell in a Cell is not a traditional cage match. But this is your TD so if you want to include HIAC then that is fine on my end.

thanks for your "small correction", just showing some love to "Fly'N Brian"..
nice match, seriously, nice match..
Not like I forgot that one, but alright..
for my next pick..
Triple H vs Ric Flair, Taboo Tuesday 2005..
Talk about to big time players squaring off..
Triple H 13 time world champion vs Ric Flair..WOOOOO 21x World HW champ..
believe it or not, Flair put on a show, and Triple H can help even the worst wrestlers look good, so you arleady know the deal on this matchup..
This match was not for the World Title, it was for the I-C title, and the old dirt bag, Ric Flair wins, via escape of the 20 foot steel cage..
This fight was the co-main event of 2005's Taboo Tuesday, in my opinion, this fight outshined the main event, that consisted of Kurt Angle vs John Cena vs HBK..

You pulled a rabbit out of the hat. Not a major match, but a good one indeed.
For my next cage match, I am going with Undertaker vs Mankind at King of the Ring 98.
Hell in a Cell. One of the most classic matches in the history of the WWE. Not one, Not two, but THREE major spots in this match. Including the infamous throwing off the top of the Cell.
This match solidified Foley's career. And gave Hell in a Cell a new perspective.

Talking about a new perspective, this type cage match im about to talk about, revolutionized the steel cage as well..
could arguably be just as good.. OR BETTER than the WWE's Hell in the Cell match
5 on 5, TWO RINGS?
I'm going with War Games.. July 28th 1988
Road Warrior Hawk
Road Warriorp Animal
the 4 horse men
Arn Anderson "the Enforcer"
These 10 legends went toe to toe in the double cage..
Sting submits Dillon in the scorpion deathlock, that's the outcome of this brawl for all..
This was the last war games' of the year, '88.
The next had no mustard like this dance, filled with WCW michael Jackson's..

War Games...something they really need to bring back. I miss those days. Nice pick.
For my final cage match I am going with the classic Jimmy Snuka vs Don Murocco. Another classic WWE matchup for the Intercontinental Championship.
This match has been deemed to be one of the most classic cage matches of all time. When Jimmy Snuka did his big splash off the top of the cage. You see this time and time again when the WWE relives highlights from the past.
Most people dont even realize who won that match. Only that Snuka did this amazing feat. Even Mick Foley stated that it was that match that got him hooked on to professional wrestling.
Without this match, we may never have seen a style of wrestling like we see today.
