It was hell on earth when Brock Lesnar faced The Undertaker inside a giant steel cage on Oct. 25 at WWE’s ‘Hell In A Cell.’ These two titans of the ring went to war in an epic final match against each other. Get the details here!
This wasn’t a match — it was a war! Brock Lesnar, 38, and The Undertaker, 50, looked to finally end their long-standing feud in one of the most destructive matches in WWE history: Hell In A Cell. The anything-goes match was the perfect way to settle things between the two wrestling greats, and in the end, Brock came out on top!
Not even a 24-foot-high steel cage could control all the chaos and destruction that took place on Oct. 25 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Both Brock and The Undertaker went at each other so hard, they made each other bleed and even tore the floor of the ring. After a long battle, Brock finally took down Taker by pinfall that ended things once and for all!
This blood feud between Taker and Brock started off in 2014, at Wrestlemania 30. Brock defeated the Deadman to break his undefeated Wrestlemania streak. It seemed like Brock had finally ended the career of the WWE’s phenom, until he made a shocking return at WWE Battleground, costing Brock a shot at the WWE championship.
The Beast was looking for revenge when he locked up with The Undertaker at SummerSlam in Aug. 2015. The Undertaker technically took home the victory, nailing a low blow on Brock before locking on the gruesome Hell’s Gate submission hold. After the match was over, the footage showed that Taker actually tapped out to Brock’s Kimura Lock, but the ref didn’t see it! This left Brock with one last choice: face the Undertaker in one final match at Hell In A Cell.
This kind of match is one of The Undertaker’s trademarks. He was in the very first Hell In The Cell, with Shawn Michaels, in 1997. His Hell In The Cell match with Mankind (aka Mick Foley) produced one of pro-wrestling’s most notorious moments, when Taker threw Mick off the top of the cage! However, his record is only 6 wins, 5 losses and one no contest. In fact, Taker lost to Brock in a Hell In A Cell at WWE’s No Mercy in 2002! Unfortunately for Taker, he didn’t get his revenge on Brock.
Along with the Undertaker-Brock match, Seth Rollins faced off against Kane for the WWE World Championship and retained the title. Kevin Owens defended his Intercontinental Championship against Ryback and John Cena held his US Open Challenge for the United States Championship. In a surprise return, Alberto Del Rio took John’s challenge and even ended up stripping John of the U.S. Champ title!

Clearly Hell In A Cell was a big night in the wrestling world, and there were plenty of A-list spectators watching the epic matches go down. Mark Wahlberg, Rick Rubin, Sofia Vergara and her fiance Joe Manganiello, and Seth Green were all in attendance! Considering the spectacle that was the Brock/Undertaker match, celebs and fans in the crowd alike certainly won’t go home unhappy — unless they were rooting for The Undertaker, of course! To add insult to injury the Wyatt Family attacked The Undertaker after the match which only has us to assume that The Undertaker and Bray Wyatt will face off at the annual Survivor Series on November 22nd on the WWE Network!
