WWE WrestleMania 28 Predictions – The Undertaker Vs. Triple H Hell In A Cell

Undertaker-TripleH-WrestleMania28As a result of the excitement of the biggest WrestleMania event of the last three decades, I have decided to expand preview coverage to individual matchups. Today I preview and offer predictions on the co-main event, Triple H vs. The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell Match.

Here we go again. The Undertaker will meet Triple H for the third time at WrestleMania this year at WrestleMania 28 in a rematch of last year’s Match of the Year determined by the WWE on WWE.com. Arguably the greatest foe for both Triple H and The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels will serve as the special guest referee to add to the intrigue.

Unlike some, I have no problem seeing this match again. It was my second favorite match of 2011, behind Christian vs. Randy Orton at Over the Limit. Here is what I wrote in my blog about last year’s match immediately after it happened.

This match rivaled both HBK vs. Undertaker WrestleMania matches and was arguably better. Some will argue that the amount of near falls got a bit ridiculous and it did, but it was no different than HBK vs. Undertaker from WrestleMania 25. This was just a tremendous match and I would be absolutely shocked if they don’t come back with a rematch next year with Career vs. Streak. The Undertaker had to be taken to the back with a cart without moving.

The big story here is that Triple H didn’t want to wrestle The Undertaker. He was so confident that he’d beat him, that he didn’t want to win the brand for business. The Undertaker wanted vengeance (for what I am still trying to figure out) and was able to goad Hunter into taking the match after saying he wasn’t as good as Shawn Michaels. Hunter accepted but demanded the match be held inside a Hell in a Cell.

There is also the streak. Will The Undertaker will go 20-0 at WrestleMania? It is funny because pro wrestling often ignores professional sports, yet this winning streak is arguably the best angle that the company has had the last decade. 20 seems like a good number to end it with one way or the other, so my guess here is that this is the last we see of The Undertaker streak.

I am not as big of a fan as the Hell in a Cell stipulation as others are. I think these guys need to incorporate brawling and hitting the floor to keep this one interesting. The cell can actually be debilitating to two guys like The Undertaker and Triple H. I’d be shocked if they don’t leave the cage, otherwise this could be a slow, plodding match.

So how will this one go? I expect these guys to steal the show once again. I know that Hunter has his haters online, but the guy knows how to tell a story in the ring maybe better than anyone currently in the WWE. Same with The Undertaker. There is obvious chemistry between these two that is quite amazing considering the fact that they have only wrestled each other once in the last few years.

Prediction: It is really hard to believe that Triple H would sign up for this and go down two years in a row to the Dead Man. At the same time, I find it almost unfathomable to think that the company would waste something as monumental as the man that ended the streak on a guy that barely wrestles anymore. So with that said, I am going with The Undertaker to win and keep the WrestleMania streak alive. I think Shawn Michaels attempts to play some Sweet Chin Music on the Undertaker which instead winds up knocking his former D-X partner cold for the pin.
