Ranking All 30 WWE Hell in a Cell Matches

13) The Undertaker vs. Randy Orton, WWE Armageddon 2005

Randy Orton came out for this match with his father, “Cowboy” Bob Orton, who was carrying Undertaker’s urn.

Orton was under the “Legend Killer” gimmick during this time. He had defeated multiple WWE Hall of Famers throughout the year and made ‘Taker his next target. After plenty of antics between Orton and Undertaker, their feud came to a culmination with this Hell in a Cell match.

Undertaker began torturing the young Orton with a steel chair to the head that busted him open. He got him in the gut and bashed in his skull once again. Ouch. ‘Taker then smacked Orton’s head into the steel steps and threw him into the cell. Orton would finally get an opening with a huge RKO while ‘Taker was on the apron.

The turning point of this bout came when Orton broke out a table and brought it into the ring. It would come into play when Orton got Undertaker onto it. Orton then climbed the top rope and hit a splash on him through the table. It wasn’t the prettiest thing in the world but the table did break.

The other turning point was when Undertaker accidentally knocked out the referee with a punch. Orton then hit an RKO but no referee was able to count. One would get in and count but ‘Taker kicked out. Bob Orton also entered the cell and clubbed the referee after he counted for Undertaker’s Last Ride.

Back in the ring, Orton would counter a Tombstone Piledriver into one of his own. ‘Taker kicked out though and continued to rise to his feet. He would club Bob Orton and his son with the urn, hit a Tombstone on Bob and one on Randy for the win.

This was a solid Hell in a Cell match. This saw Orton and Undertaker tear each other apart and also featured Bob Orton, who annoyingly got involved in this and paid the price. Undertaker never loses Hell in a Cell matches, though, and came out on top here in one of the better bouts of this stipulation.
