• The Undertaker Went Off-Script During Legendary Hell In A Cell Match With Mankind
The WWF King of the Ring pay-per-view on June 28th 1998 at the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania featured the by far most shocking and infamous Hell in a Cell match in WWF/WWE history, between The Undertaker and Mankind (Mick Foley).
In this match, Foley took a very dangerous fall from the top of the cell onto the announcer’s desk, as well as another – also very dangerous – bump through the top of the cell into the ring.
During an appearance at Complex’s sneaker shopping series, The Undertaker revealed that him attacking Wrestling Legend Terry Funk after Mankind fell through the cell was not scripted and was just him killing time, while Mick was recovering from the high-risk bump.
Here’s what The Deadman said:
“It’s just one of those things that happened. Obviously everyone was really concerned for Mankind going through the cell.
He was inches away from probably not getting up from that, so that’s why that all just happened unplanned.
I don’t know what kind of shape Mick’s in, right? But then again you just can’t stand there and look around, so there’s a wrestler in the ring, somebody’s gotta get it!
Somebody’s gonna get Chokeslammed, and Terry Funk, he was the recipient. Up he went and there’s the shoe.
It’s funny that something the stature of that match, what an iconic moment of Terry Funk losing his shoe to a Chokeslam!”
