Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.
Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the
false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!

Better Hell In A Cell Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker or Mankind vs. Undertaker?
With Hell In A Cell in two weeks, which early Cell match did you like more?
Both are memorable matches in their own ways but no Hell In A Cell match tops the storytelling of the Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker match. From the big stuff, such as it being the first Hell In A Cell, to the small intricacies, like the narrative of the chair being used in this feud culminating here, all being superbly intertwined and exploding to life thanks to the out-of-this-world chemistry and talent of The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.
The way these two can always strike a genuine emotion by a simple move or a facial expression is amazing. I also think it’s something special to have the debut of Kane which was pretty big at the time. It’s always nice to see two storylines unfolding at once without being too much. So… umm… yeah. I’d say I like this match more than the Undertaker vs Mankind match, which wasn’t bad by (hardly) any means.
Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker
Both are classics but I lean towards Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker. Shawn Michaels from 1996-1997 was on another level from any wrestler I’ve ever seen aside from the last few years of Daniel Bryan. That match was an emotional roller coaster that ended with the debut of Kane, which was a big deal at the time. You got to see two stories unfold, a classic match between two of the greats and it was the FIRST time you ever saw The Hell In A Cell cage so it just holds a special place in my little ol’ wrestling heart.
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker
While the first is objectively the better match, the second is one of those few spectacles in wrestling that I don’t think will ever be matched. It’s also the match that got me back into wrestling as a teenager, so as much as I like the HBK / Undertaker Hell In A Cell, I’ve got too much tied into the Mankind / Undertaker one to put anything above it.
