MATCH : Cactus Jack v Triple H


EVENT : No Way Out 2000

VENUE : Hartford Civic Centre, Hartford, Conneticut

DATE : 27th February 2000

STIPULATION : Hell in a Cell Match


BACKGROUND : The feud between WWE World Champion Triple H and Mick Foley had been going on for sometime. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were running the show to their benefit and this was getting many of the wrestlers backs up including Foley who debuted his Cactus Jack character in the federation at the Royal Rumble. Cactus was unable to defeat Triple H at the Rumble but was given a second opportunity at No Way Out. The stipulation being that Foley could pick the type of match but had to put his career on the line. With the match agreed as a Hell in a Cell, would Mick Foley walk out of the PPV as World Champion or unemployed?

MATCH REVIEW : This was a fantastic match that really should have ended this feud. The story of Foley as Cactus Jack giving everything he could to win the match, win the title and guarantee a main event spot at Wrestlemania was fantastic and the brawls these men had were always brutal. This was a great time to be a wrestling fan and more specifically a WWF fan because they were showing some great matches with the best and most charismatic wrestlers around. This was a very enjoyable and emotional Hell in a Cell match that is as good as you would expect from two legends such as Foley and Triple H.
