The Original Hell in a Cell

I thought I'd post this for Jasmine. The WWE Hell in a Cell match is based on the Last battle of Atlanta (1983) The culmination of the two year feud between Buzz Sawyer and Tommy Rich. A cage match with a wire ceiling. Very bloody and thought to be lost forever as there have never been any surviving footage of the match.

Until now.

10/23/1983

Not great camera work but this is wrestling history.

Thanks, Bert!  Smiley

I had read that WWE had gotten its hands on this footage. I had heard about this match and tried the n vain for a long time to see it all n YouTube. What a bloody battle!

Although it was supposed to be their final battle, I know Rich and Sawyer later wrestled against each other in Mid-South. By then however, their feud had long ago lost its steam.

Between this match and their matches in Mid South Sawyer turned babyface and they actually tag teamed a bit in Georgia against the LoD. The Sawyer going babyface angle was a pretty weak. He was always a better as a heel.

Yep! I saw his face turn on YouTube. He was protecting his brother against the LOD.

Later on, when he returned to Crockett, he was like a rabid dog, under the control of Kevin Sullivan.
