Hell in the cell
16 May 2002 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

Nobody will ever forget KOTR 98 none of the matches on the card mean anything when you think about the craziest thing ever seen on WWF television as Mick Foley not only got thrown off the cage through a table but also through the cage and later would be choke slammed on thumbtacks. This match and this event truly made Foley a legend! The other matches were: Headbangers & Taka Michinoku vs Kaientai, X-Pac vs Owen Hart, Al Snow vs Too Much, New Age Outlaws vs New Midnight Express, Dan Severn vs Rock, Ken Shamrock vs Jeff Jarrett and Kane vs Stone Cold.
