4.0 out of 5 stars A legendary night in sports entertainment. 14 Jun 2001
By A Customer
King of the Ring '98... what a night. It has gone down as one of the most memorable WWF Pay Per Views of all time. This is largely due to the double main event, but I'll get to that in a minute.
The first non-tournament match is a six-man tag match with The Headbangers and Taka Michinoku vs Kaientai. This is an entertaining match, a predictable end but entertaining all the same.
Al Snow (with Head), who was then a newcomer to the federation, is up next against the tag team of Too Much, who are now known as Too Cool. Jerry 'The King' Lawler referees in this match, resulting in obvious favouritism (he is the father of Too Much's Brian Christopher, now Grand Master Sexay). I found this match quite boring and the ending is ridiculous, but I can see how it was a valuable outing into the world of PPV for three young talents.
The next two matches are dominated by DX, as Owen Hart faces X-Pac and Tag Team Champions The New Age Outlaws face NWA's Midnight Express. The tag match in particular is very good, with interference and a rather eye-watering low blow from Chyna.
The King of the Ring tournament itself is average, with Ken Shamrock putting in the best performance. It was interesting to see the Rock back then, trying to be a heel (bad guy) but still being cheered. I thought his interview in the isle after his first round match is cool, Rock through and through. I do have one query about this tournament, why isn't there any crowning ceremony like in the previous King of the Rings? It kind of takes away from the efforts of the winner if it is just like 'another match won, like any other day'.
The first of the main events is legendary to anyone who has ever been slightly interested in wrestling... Undertaker vs Mankind Hell in a Cell!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most brutal extravaganza of all time ! 5 Sep 2000
By A Customer
King of the Ring was a momentus occasion and the 'Hell in a Cell' match surpassed anything that I have ever seen in the WWF and any other Federation. There are several good matches on this video like - the finals of the KOTR when Shamrock meets the Rock and X-Pac vs Owen Hart. But If you prefer an all-out brawl to a scientific match then the WWF title match - Austin vs Kane is the one for you. But the match that makes the video is Mankind vs The Undertaker inside 'Hell in a Cell'. This is quite simply the most brutal, most violent and easily the most unbelievable match in wrestling history! What happens to Mankind is truly spectacular and makes you want to keep rewinding the tape to see it again and again. To be honest though the Hell in a cell Match gets the video the full five stars. Without this match then it would only get three stars. But if you are going to get a video and like to see people flying off the top of cells and crashing through announce tables then don't hesitate to buy it. This video will truly take your breath away!

5.0 out of 5 stars This kinda rocks. 29 Oct 2000
I've got to admit, I had my doubts when I bought King of the Ring. At the time, it was the oldest video I had in my collection and I wasn't into pre 1999 wrestling too badly. But I was wrong. It wound up being one of the best PPVs ever. Every match is brilliant in this video...Jerry 'The King' Lawler's unfair refereeing against Al Snow, the New Midnight Express coming into the big leagues against the New Age Outlaws and even the first match with (in my opinion) some very boring superstars was good. One match stands out above the rest- Hell in a Cell. This truly contains the most amazing moments ever to emerge from the WWF. If you don't know what happens, for god's sake, buy the damn video! The only problem was that it outshadowed the Main Event, which dragged on for a bit and was unfair from the very start. Hell in a Cell should have been scheduled as the Main One, but all in all, this PPV rocks some. Add it to your collection now if not sooner. Take care, -Robster

5.0 out of 5 stars IT IS THE MOST AWESOME EVENT IN WWF HISTORY! 1 July 2000
By A Customer
The Hell in a cell match is extremely exciting. It consists of a brave Mick Foley,being thrown off the top of the cell,crashing through the Spanish announce table.Astonishingly,he recovers from the fall and gets to his feet.Immediately, after this,they find themselves atop the cage once again.However,this time Mankind gets Chokeslammed straight through the cage and sustains a tremendous pummel to the ring.Observe carefully,as you can see the chair which Mankind brought out smacks him in the face.During this match he suffers a dislodged tooth,a hole that pierces his skin,this is located just under his bottom lip.That is why,when the camera gets a close up of him he seems to be smiling when actually he his trying to slip his tongue through the hole.Oh yeah look at his nostril.Overall,it is an outstanding match,combining bravery, confidence and experience.I would guarantee it too anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome.... 3 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Ok screw all the other matches on here. The only reason you should buy this is for the hell in a cell. Normally i wouldn't say you should buy a ppv for just one match, but in this case ill make an exception. Nothing even comes to close to what this one match achieved. Not a pure wrestling match with great style in any sense of it, but this is by far the most hardcore match ever. Anything you think you know about wrestling will change once you see this. You think Lesnar vs Undertaker Hell in a Cell was hardcore? You think Shane vs Big Show Last Man Standing was incredible? This match beats both and in my opinion is the greatest match ever achieved. Even HHH vs Cactus Jack can't touch this. Buy this, it has to be seen!
