Hell in a Cell is arguably the most demonic structure in all of professional wrestling

Hell in a Cell[]

A Hell in a Cell Match is a match seen in International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE) in which the ring and ringside area is surrounded by a roofed steel cage (called "cell"). Nineteen Hell in a Cell matches have taken place in IWE since its inception in October 1997. The original Cell was 16 feet high and weighed over 2 tons but since been replaced by an amplified version of 20 feet and 5 tons. Described as a career ender, this type of match is known to end the most intense of rivalries due to its dangerous nature. Indeed, the early occurrences of this match were known for the legitimate and severe injuries suffered during them (the most notorious of which belonged to Mick Foley when he wrestled Martin McAlmond), and even cause the commentators to break character.
