Edge recalls the match:
“22 years ago today we starting truly carving our path in the first tag team ladder match,” Edge wrote. “22 years later I’m about to face off with a talent who will go down as one of the best to do it. In Hell in A Cell. One helluva ride.”

The wrestling fans will recall that this ladder match from No Mercy eventually led to the legendary triple threat ladder match between The Dudleys, The Hardy Boyz, and Edge & Christian at WrestleMania 2000. They then inspired the first-ever Tables, Ladders, and Chairs matches in WWE history.
“The Rated R Superstar” is set to face Seth Rollins in a Hell In A Cell match at this Thursday’s Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Edge had defeated Rollins by submission at SummerSlam 2021, but Rollins defeated Edge in their second encounter at Super SmackDown at MSG. After interfering in Edge’s matches and even terrorizing his home, Edge challenged Rollins to the HIAC match. We will see how the match goes down at the show.
