The third biggest show on earth behind the World Cup final and the Superbowl currently boasts the greatest streak of them all but could this be the year it all comes to an end?
The Undertaker is currently 18 and 0 at Wrestlemania. For those of you who don’t speak American sports that’s 18 matches, 18 wins, and one of the most iconic wrestlers of all time has returned from injury just in time for the biggest show of the wrestling calendar.
Triple H will also make his long awaited return from injury, as the pair announced they would wrestle at Mania this week on Raw, without saying a word.
In 6 stunning minutes, first The Undertaker came to the ring, complete with his usual darkness and deadman music, and just as he was about to speak, Triple H’s music hit. The Game made his way to the ring, saluted the crowd before turning his attention to the dead man.
After the pair faced up, they both looked up at the Wrestlemania sign, paused, and with a glimmer of a smile Taker put his hat back on, walked to the edge of the ring, turned and pulled his finger across his throat.
Triple H stared him down and responded with a DX chop across his crotch as the show went off air.
Triple H has fought the Undertaker at Wrestlemania before, losing to him in 2001, in front of 67.925 fans in Houston’s Reliant Astrodome.
Will the Undertaker relinquish his phenomenal record, or will Triple H finally get the better of the phenom?
