WWE Hell in a Cell – The Infographic

Were only two days away from WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 and Jake Sharpless from Rukkus.com.is back with another one of his great infographics. Here’s some HIAC history analysis from Jake, as well!

In what has become one of the more anticipated pay-per-view events in the WWE, Hell in a Cell has delivered some extremely memorable moments in the past decade and a half. While the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view only debuted in 2009, the cage matches date back to 1997 when Shawn Michaels defeated the Undertaker at Badd Blood to become the #1 contender for the WWF Championship. Over the next 12 years there were 16 Hell in a Cell matches held at various pay-per-view (and a few RAW) events before it was given a full pay-per-view with it’s namesake.

We broke down all 30 of the Hell in a Cell matches in the history of the WWE and discovered that only 33 wrestlers have entered the caged competition (with 11 wrestling more than once). Of those who have wrestled more than once, only Batista touts and undefeated record (2-0) while Mick Foley, whose name is synonymous with Hell in a Cell, has never walked away from a HiaC match the victor (0-2-2). Unsurprisingly, the two men who have squared off the most in the cell, Undertaker (12 times) and Triple H (9 times) are tied with the most victories in such matches, going 6-5-1 and 6-3 respectively.

In terms of championships being decided, only two belts have ever been up for stake in the cell, the WWE (previously WWF) Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship. Only three times has a belt changed hands, and CM Punk and John Cena are the only two wrestlers to ever lose a belt in a Hell in a Cell match.


That’s all from our friends from Rukkus.com. I hope you’ve enjoyed all these cool facts!

  1. Dear Mr. Vince Mcmahon or Mr. Triple H,

    I would really appreciate it if u would bring CM Punk back to the WWE coz he’s what’s best for business. As u know he’s a great wrestler and was one of the longest reigning champion of all time so everyone deserves a second chance by putting ur differences aside. I’ve been a huge wrestling fan for the past 28 years without missing a weekly episode of raw, smackdown, NXT, main event or superstars. Please seriously consider his return since i’m sure u both need each other and I can’t wait to see him in a wwe wrestling ring again. He’s been long gone and it’s time to reinstate him ASAP. Waiting for ur positive feedback at ur earliest convenience and thank u for understanding
