Mick Foley cemented himself in WWE’s history at the King Of The Ring Pay-Per-View (PPV) in 1998, when he battled The Undertaker in an infamous Hell In A Cell match.
In the midst of his legendary Hell In A Cell match with The Phenom, Foley took a hellacious bump off the top of the 24-foot high steel structure cell and crashed into the announcer’s table.
Till date, that dangerously career-threatening bump stands as one of the most infamous moments in pro-wrestling history. A month ago, that infamous Hell In A Cell match celebrated 20 years, and now two decades later Foley has been conducting a 20 Years of Hell tour.
Fan Fest recently interviewed Foley to promote his tour where the Attitude Era Superstar revealed something that “bothered” him regarding the legacy of his Hell In A Cell match from the 1998 King Of The Ring PPV.
“For a while, it kinda bothered me that that was the only thing people remembered me for,” said Foley. “But as is often the case with iconic characters whether it be Batman or the Fonz, after a while you stop regretting it and realize how lucky you are to be a part of something people remember so fondly.
“(With the anniversary) I’ve had a great time bringing that night back to life on stage and I enjoy talking about it with a lot of people who were not even born when that match took place 20 years ago.”
