On this date in WWE history: Kane sets MVP on fire at Armageddon

Remember the "Inferno" match? The last we saw of it, Kane was using it to set MVP on fire at Armageddon on this date in history.

Flame on!

On December 17, 2006, Kane and Montel Vontavious Porter (MVP) didn't just jerk the curtain to open WWE's Armageddon pay-per-view, they set the damn thing on fire.

Literally.

The dangerous but visually epic "Inferno Match" made its return for the first time in over seven years and it didn't disappoint. MVP ended up losing, well, because "The Big Red Machine" set him on fire.

See how it all went down:

Some interesting WWE/F Inferno match trivia from the Pro Wrestling Wiki:

  • Kane has competed in every Inferno match to date, with a win-loss record of 1-3.
  • Kane competed in the first Inferno match on his birthday, April 26 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
  • Armageddon 2006 was the first Inferno match to occur after Kane had been unmasked.
  • Every Inferno Match has ended with the losing wrestler being set on fire, outside the ring. This is so that the wrestler can quickly escape to the back to be extinguished.

How about it Cagesiders, anyone think we'll see another match like this in the future?
