And today, we look at the very first time that the Undertaker and Triple H went one on one at Wrestlemania X-7 on April 1st 2001. Or the match that never happened.
17 Days Until WWE Wrestlemania 28: Triple H and the Undertaker
Triple H claimed that there was no one in the lockeroom left for him to beat. Even in 2001, he did this, so it's not like it was something new in 2012 for Triple H in WWE. The Undertaker accepted the challenge, promising to make Triple H famous. The undefeated streak was there, but it wasn't really played up. The buildup was Stephanie McMahon(who was Triple H's wife in the storyline but not yet in real life at this point) having a storyline and a hokey segment with Kane dangling an obviously fake Stephanie over the railing of the balcony.
Yet the match was there, Undertaker vs. Triple H at Wrestlemania X-7. This match was slammed by some fans for having an overly long referee bump. Undertaker pulled out the Tombstone during this match, that he didn't really use during his American Badass days. Triple H used his trusty sledgehammer but in the end, The Undertaker gave Triple H the Last Ride and 9-0 for the Undertaker, for those keeping score at home.
At Wrestlemania 28, both of these men, Triple H and the Undertaker will step inside Hell in a Cell with the Undertaker hitting 20-0. That is April 1st 2012 in Miami Florida.
