The Game will take on Undertaker for the last time ever at WWE Super Show-Down on October 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.
The WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative appeared on RAW to address Taker’s return from last week, which saw him having an intense confrontation with Shawn Michaels.
Most WWE legends think The Deadman will win Down Under but Michaels is one of the very few who expect The King of Kings to prevail.
That bothered The Phenom who accused the Heartbreak Kid of being bitter and afraid – that in turn teased another big match between the two legends.
Triple H believes that Undertaker’s reaction showed he had lost respect for himself and proved that he is now just a mere shadow of what he was in his prime.
Taker beat the 14-time world champion in three unforgettable matches at WrestleMania 17, 27 and 28.
Their last bout saw them destroying each other inside Hell in a Cell with a steel chair and a sledgehammer before Special Guest Referee Michaels raised The Demon of Death Valley’s hand.
However, Triple H is now confident it will be a much different story in Australia and promised he will put him down.
The Cerebral Assassin said: “The night after SummerSlam I stood in this ring. I told you the era was back. That out of respect, mutual respect, The Undertaker and I would face each other one last time in Melbourne, Australia.
“After that the legends came out of the woodwork, they gave their predictions and their opinions on who would win. Polls were taken. Who will win? The Undertaker or Triple H? And as expected, The Undertaker was chosen almost across the board. As to be expected, it is The Undertaker. It’s not like he is the underdog ever, right? I get it.
“The thing is, at this level those opinions and predictions they don’t bother you. They don’t mean anything, or at least they shouldn’t. Which is why it was so shocking to me when Shawn came out here last week to give his opinion on who would win the match. It bothered one man so much, The Undertaker. The Phenom, The Deadman, The Undertaker.
“It’s almost laughable to me to think about it. The Undertaker was bothered by Shawn Michaels’ opinion? I don’t get it. But he was so rattled by Shawn’s opinion that I would beat him that he made an appearance in this ring angry, agitated, accusing Shawn of bitterness and fear. Bating Shawn with threats.
“I gotta tell you, I watched that back and it made me mad, it made me really mad. Because somehow I felt like The Undertaker had lost respect for Shawn, that The Undertaker had lost respect for me. So I watched it back. And when I watched it back I realised that that wasn’t the case at all. The Undertaker hadn’t lost respect for Shawn, he hadn’t lost respect for me, The Undertaker had lost respect for himself.
“To prove that, I have to look further than the fact that he didn’t show up here to tell me to my face. The truth is, I guess, if you go back to that series of matches years ago at WrestleMania he was never quite the same after that, was he?
“No, things would go downhill. The aura would go away, the Streak would go away, the mystique would go away until all that was left is what you see of The Undertaker now. Just a reputation. That series of matches was his last epic moments of greatness and he blames us for the demise.
“But Deadman, you said one thing last week that was true. Now it’s personal. So at Melbourne, Australia out of the last little bit of respect that I’ve left for you Deadman I will put you down.”
