7) Triple H vs. Chris Jericho – WWE Judgement Day 2002

This match’s build began at WrestleMania earlier in the year, when Triple H won the WWE Undisputed Championship off Chris Jericho. The Game then began feuding with Vince McMahon. The Chairman used Jericho to lead an attack, which set up this match.

This match started off with Triple H trying to take out most of his frustrations on Jericho. He threw furious punches to send Y2J reeling and tossed him into the cell to continue the assault.

Jericho eventually took over, showing his ruthless aggression. This caused his shoulder to be lacerated.

From there, blood would be a big part of this match as both men got busted open. This meant the match got more physical and violent as weapons got involved, including more use of the cell. Triple H even smacked a chair into Jericho while he was holding a ladder.

The turning point of this match came when referee Tim White was inadvertently hit into the cell by Jericho. This led to Y2J hitting Triple H with a chair and going for a pin but there was no referee to count. Jericho would take out his frustrations by beating down White, throwing him into the cell and punching him. This caused the referees to have to break open the chains to check on White and allow a referee to continue the match.

Jericho and Triple H continued to battle, with the latter using a sledgehammer for his assault. He went for a pin and would have got in if a referee was in the ring.

Triple H would win this with a Pedigree on top of the cell.

This match was a rough, brutal contest. It featured Triple H and Jericho just kicking the daylights out of each other. Both men were severely bloodied after using the cell and barbed wire to nearly end their careers. This was a lot of fun, though, and goes down as one of the better Hell in a Cell matches ever.
