With orange dragon fire blazing in the background and gray ashes falling on the ground, it's hard to imagine a more epic staging for the rumble. Some images from the fight, like the one above, look like they were ripped straight from the cover of a paperback novel.
But the fight itself wasn't always so beautiful. Quickly, the giant helmet came off and we got our first close-up glimpse at Gregor's nasty, undead mug. "Yeah, that's you," quipped The Hound during the reveal. "That's what you've always been." Iron swords clashed. Punches were thrown. Eyes were gouged out.
Toward the end of the fight, the blinded and wounded Hound stabbed his brother in the head with a knife. Even that blow didn't end the brawl, so The Hound made one last daring move: He launched himself at his brother and tackled him against a brick wall, which crumbled and sent the two brothers soaring down into the roaring fire below -- a fitting end for The Hound, who's been afraid of fire ever since his brother burned his face on one when they were kids.
With both Cleganes falling into the abyss below, does that mean that the fight was a draw? Or does The Hound win for going down fighting? Or are they still fighting somewhere in the rubble?
That last one doesn't seem possible. But this was about as big and ridiculous of a fight as the Cleganebowl faithful could have hoped for: It had twists, thrills, and even a few laughs. For wrestling fans watching, the moment likely recalled various conflicts between feuding brothers the Undertaker and Kane in the WWE. In an episode packed with madness, suffering, and misery, it was an absurd reminder that you're watching a show where guys fight in crumbling castles while a dragon soars around in the background. It was a Cleganebowl to remember.
