The evolution of the steel cage

Blue bars

The most notable change in the structure of the steel cage came at WrestleMania 2 when Hulk Hogan defended the WWE Championship against King Kong Bundy. The battle took place inside the confines of the steel cage, but the cage was drastically different than it had been in the past. The structure sported thick blue bars — a unique deviation from the past. The wide bars and higher structure were necessary to contain the titans that clashed on the inside for the WWE Championship. The traditional rules of a Steel Cage Match remained in effect as pinfalls and submissions were not allowed, a competitor has to either climb out of the cage or leave through the door.
