AEW Star Buries Terrible Undertaker Match

AEW veteran commentator Jim Ross recently reflected on the famous six-man Hell in a Cell match at Armageddon 2000. The former WWE commentator said that it was “desperation booking” by WWE’s creative team.



Jim Ross talks about the match

WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle had emerged victorious against Rikishi, The Rock, Steve Austin, Triple H, and The Undertaker inside the steel structure to retain the WWE Championship.

Ross was part of the commentary desk at the event and during the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast, he criticized the match:

“Just in my opinion, the Hell in a Cell with six guys… an absolute debacle of booking. It’s desperation booking. We got no better ideas? We got no individuals who are totally hot, so we’re just gonna put everything in the stew? We got potato over here, carrot over here, we got some onions here, let’s put some sage in there… momma used to do that. They had no clue what they were cooking,” Jim Ross said.

The winner of the Hell in a Cell match, Kurt Angle and looked strong due to his pinfall victory over The Rock. However, JR said that the rest of the participants had concerns about who would “get over” with fans during the gruesome match.

“I remember the talents in that six-man match. Who’s gonna get the shine? Who’s gonna get over? It’s not about who goes over, it’s who gets over. I just thought it was overthought, overbooked… you can’t just go token booking with talents like Rock and Austin and Triple H. Even Kurt, to a lesser degree, at that time,” Jim Ross said.
