The 10 best Hell in a Cell matches ever

#10 D-Generation X vs. Mr. McMahon, Shane McMahon & Big Show, Unforgiven 2006

One month after Shawn Michaels & Triple H bested Mr. McMahon & Shane McMahon at SummerSlam 2006, the McMahons enlisted then-ECW Champion Big Show to face DX in a Handicap Hell in a Cell Match that was equal parts absurd and explosive. Marking the debut of an XXL-sized Cell structure, it was a kinetic clash full of big hits.

The 3-on-2 brawl had an unrelenting pace and spectacular moves, including Shane-O-Mac’s Van Terminator on The Game and HBK’s elbow drop onto the younger, chair-ensnared McMahon. Even though Big Show was mighty effective as his team’s heavy, the makeshift three-man crew was no match for DX’s teamwork. Mr. McMahon was pinned after being hit with Sweet Chin Music and struck with a sledgehammer. Yet, even before enduring those attacks, Mr. McMahon found himself the butt of an ironic joke: After years of welcoming others into his exclusive club, the WWE Chairman wound up getting his face stuffed into Big Show’s backside.
