For the past year Shane McMahon has really breathed a new life into the WWE's beloved Hell In A Cell matches.
McMahon returned to WWE last year to take on The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 inside Hell In A Cell. One of the highlights of the match, and one of the greatest WrestleMania moments of all time, was McMahon taking a bump off the top of the cell and down into the announce table. Undertaker moved out of the way just in time, thus leaving McMahon to crash into the table on his own.
Just a year later McMahon returned to "The Devil's Playground," but this time to settle the score with Kevin Owens, who he had been feuding with for weeks prior. Again McMahon put on one of the greatest Hell In A Cell matches of all time, and once again took the hellacious bump off the top of the cell.
McMahon was prepared to jump off the top of the cell and drop an elbow on Owens, who was laid out on the announce table down below, but as McMahon jumped Sami Zayn pulled Owens out of the way just in time - leaving McMahon to again crash into the table on his own and lose the match.
One man notorious for taking a bump off the top of Hell In A Cell is the first man to have ever done it - WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley. Foley recently spoke to Sports Illustrated to discuss McMahon's Hell In A Cell urge to jump off the cell, and said he hopes Shane would stop attempting the bump (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"He didn't seek my counsel," Foley said with a laugh. "I give him all the credit in the world, he's probably the bravest guy I know, he's absolutely fearless.
"I wish he wouldn't do it, I hope he doesn't do it again, I really do... A lot of impact, on landing. He's got children, I just hope he doesn't do it again."
