Elix Skipper Reflects On TNA Turning Point 2004 Cage Walk, Wanting To Do It Three Years Earlier

At TNA/IMPACT Turning Point 2004, Elix Skipper pulled off one of the most impressive moves in wrestling history as he walked across the top of the cage and hit a hurricanrana onto Chris Harris.

The spot is one of the most memorable moves in IMPACT and wrestling history and one of the top highlights in wrestling history.

Appearing on Get Funk'd With Kwee Wee, Skipper reflected on the spot.

"The first time we did a cage match, I wanted to do that move, but we didn't do it because the AC went out on the first pay-per-view, so we didn't do it. The AC goes out, everything is slick, so you couldn't even stand on the cage. That's the only reason I didn't do it like three years prior," he said.

Triple X and America's Most Wanted first battled in a cage match on June 25, 2003 on a weekly TNA/IMPACT pay-per-view.

"We wrestled them so many times. If you wrestle somebody two or three times, it's not even work. You didn't even have to talk, it was one of those matches. Just go in there and do what we do. I don't know what I was thinking. I got up there and the difference in a six foot cage and a 20-foot cage is it's going to shake when you get to the top. That's why when you see me walking across it, I got my arms out. I'm trying to balance because the cage is moving. That's the only thing I didn't think of when I was going that walk," he said. "I didn't have a chance to get scared. I stood up and had both my feet togther, I never stand on the cage with both my feet together, that was the only way to get balance. As soon as I stood up, I took off. I didn't want to fall. It hurt like hell. I hurt my ribs when I landed, my two ribs on the right side."

America's Most Wanted (Chris Harris & James Storm) were victorious in the match, forcing Triple X (Skipper & Christopher Daniels) to split up.

Skipper hasn't wrestled since 2009.
