So he had a conversation with Terry that stemmed into a big joke, it started with them beginning the match on top of the Cell, him being thrown off the cell and then getting back up and all these crazy spots - and then Mick got serious like "I think I can do it".

So it was all Mick's idea as far as the two competitors go, and I'm pretty certain he also had to seriously talk 'Taker into agreeing to it (in his words, it'd look stupid if he climbed up there to start on top of the cage and 'Taker just walked inside, refusing - so he had to be on board beforehand).

you are what you love, not who loves you.
