The Undertaker's recent retirement brings the apparent end of what is perhaps the greatest career in professional wrestling history. That's not a figure of speech, or an unfounded blanket statement that sounds nice: The Phenom may have just enjoyed what is, by and large, the most successful wrestling career of all time. And he had three decades worth of battles to prove it.
'The Demon of Death Valley' has given so much to WWE over the past 30 years, offering up intriguing character development, compelling angles and multiple late-career renaissances. He's a rare breed of performer in that he's given the company some of its all-time greatest wrestling matches and some of its most gimmicky moments. That's how timeless the 'Taker character is - he transcended New Generation wackiness and found his way to greatness.
One of the best things 'The Deadman' gave to us during his career was the Hell In A Cell match. Innovated during his '97 feud with Shawn Michaels, it has loomed over himr like a dark and destructive shadow just waiting for him to bring a new victim home.
With all that in mind, let's traverse through the archives of the 'Devil's Playground' and celebrate its greatest warrior as we rank all of his battles inside it.
In the words of the Phenom himself: "welcome to Hell!"
