Re: Serious Question: Why again did Taker throw Mankind off of Hell in the Cell?
Would people agree that is top 5 most famous wrestling matches in history?
I suppose. I'd really say it was a famous moment, not the match itself, but that's probably just dissecting it too much.
Funny thing about the fall through the Cell was the story Foley put in his book. He said it was the best and worst chokeslam he ever took in that he ended up falling 15 feet to the canvas below, but he never LEFT his feet going up for the move. If the top didn't break it just would've been a horrible attempt at a chokeslam. Even worse than Hogan taking it at Judgment Day '02!
Taker's answer to his thought process after throwing Mick - "I thought you were dead."
Taker also worked the match with a broken ankle. You can see him visibly wince when he leaps down through the middle after Mick fell.
