My best memory of this match is Cole describing how dangerous the cell can be - ''You can get a finger caught in there''

The traditional method of killing someone by hanging is to have them fall a distance with the rope around their neck which then breaks their neck - instant death. It's not actually about choking them out which this would do so much more slowly. So in theory they could say he was cut down before it got to a critical stage.

Anyway, as far as that goes, it annoyed me for years that they didn't allude to this when talking about what a bad bastard Taker was inside HIAC. I understand it now as the guy is dead and they don't want to show a man who passed much too young being hung for the sake of entertainment - but at the 2000 Armageddon HIAC for example they talked about him beating up Shawn and tossing Mick off the Cell and how he was such a bad guy - but they ignored the fact he fucking HUNG a dude in there.

Always bugged me.

lol, there is no way he was actually hanging by his neck from a noose without some device in place to keep himself from being choked. No one can pretend they are actually dead [Like Bossman did] while your windpipes are being cut off.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

This was the best bit about the match! The match was awful. One of the worse Taker matches I've seen.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

Sadly, only the fourth worst. His matches at 9,11 and 19 were even worse.

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

It wasn't great, I recall dead silence. The crowd did not like it. Vince took it too far, he needs a moderator in the back, some asshole to tell him, "Hey Vince, you can't fuckin' do that."

The crazy thing is I don't know exactly which Vince you are talking about.

People bashing this match and the end forget that 98-99 was a time where shock TV and story telling was more important and more popular than actual wrestling matches thanks to Vince Russo who recognized what the fans and the generation from that era wanted, even if Undertaker had a match with Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart or Kurt Angle at WrestleMania XV it would be the same match and the same/similar ending.
This era was all about shocking and it was successful no matter what you think about it 15 years later and that makes it a great moment because of the circumstances so I have no complaints about it.
People talk about it more than about Undertaker vs Jake Roberts at WrestleMania VIII or Undertaker vs Randy Orton at WrestleMania 21 so it's one more proof that Russo made everything right

Re: Boss Man hanging at WM15

It was good, got people talking (and still does ffs) and really built up the undertakers evil satanic character.

I dont see the issue with triple H being dropped in a car too, wouldnt necessarily kill anyone or anything.
