Triple H & Undertaker’s Final Showdown
Already announced is the “last-ever” match between The Undertaker and Triple H, which would be their first match since 2012’s Wrestlemania 28 in Miami, Florida, where Undertaker defeated Triple H in a Hell In A Cell bout that was billed as the “End of an Era”, closing out their trilogy of Mania bouts.
This will be Undertaker’s fourth match of the year as he normally wrestles once a year. The first being Wrestlemania 34 against John Cena. His second match was at the Greatest Royal Rumble in a casket match against Rusev with Aiden English. His third wrestling appearance is set for Madison Square Garden. More on that here.
