Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker were in many classic matches against each other. Badd Blood: In Your House took place in October 1997 and featured the first-ever Hell In A Cell match. Michaels remembers that day well as the company prepares for NXT TakeOver: In Your House.

While he was on WWE The Bump, Shawn Michaels remembered pitching the idea to Vince McMahon that they put a roof on the cage. McMahon took HBK’s pitch and turned it into quite a spectacle.

“It was just a suggestion I made that I just threw out there. Vince took that and then made what is now our Hell In A Cell. First time we saw it, it was the day of the pay-per-view looking at that thing like ‘Wow. That’s cool.’ Then the first thing I said was, ‘I gotta get on top.'”

Shawn Michaels did get on top of the Hell In A Cell at Badd Blood. It was a moment that will live on in history, but it would have never happened if not for an In Your House event.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
