The Game and Undertaker are scheduled to face each other for the last time ever at WWE Super Show-Down on October 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.
The two WWE legends had some unforgettable wars during The Attitude Era in the late 90s and early 2000s but their best matches took place at WrestleMania 27 and 28.
Michaels got involved in their last WrestleMania match that took place inside Hell in a Cell six years ago at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.
The Heartbreak Kid featured as the Special Guest Referee in an intense bout that saw Taker and Triple H destroying each other with steel chairs, steel steps and a sledgehammer.
The Deadman won the fight and extended his WrestleMania undefeated streak but then broke character as he and HBK picked The King of Kings up and helped him walk to the back.
But at some point the three legends decided to stop at the top of the ramp and breath in a standing ovation from 78,363 fans in attendance.
That is a moment Triple H cherishes and remembers as one of the best experiences of his entire career.
The 14-time world champion revealed last week on RAW that he initially turned down another match with The Phenom.
The WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative claims everything changed after their WrestleMania 28 moment as he joined WWE management, Michaels left and Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak came to an end.
However, the ex-WWE Champion thought about it again and decided that he will face The Phenom one last time for the same reasons as he wanted to relive their glory days.
Triple H said during RAW after SummerSlam: “When Vince called me a couple of weeks ago and said, ‘Hey, I just finished up the deal with Paul Dainty [President and CEO of TEG Dainty] in Australia and we would like you to wrestle there’. I said, ‘Hell yeah’.
“And then he said, ‘And we would like you to step into the ring against The Undertaker’. And I said, ‘Hell no’.
“But for a different reason than all of you think. Because the truth is, of all the great things I’ve been lucky enough to do in my career, all of the moments that I’ve had, there’s one that stands out head and shoulders against all the others.
“It’s a moment that’s ingrained in my brain and will never come out. It’s a moment at the end of a Hell in a Cell Match between me and The Undertaker.
“The match was billed as ‘The End of an Era’ and myself, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels stood on the top of that ramp at the end of that night.
“So I will say this, that moment is about as real as it gets in this business. That is a moment between the three of us of mutual respect that none of us will ever forget.
“I’m standing there with freaking Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker, two of the biggest icons in this business ever. Two guys, arguably, who you can say are as absolutely responsible as anybody for all of this.
“But that moment changed us, it changed the three of us in a way we didn’t expect. We knew it was the end of an era, but not like that.
“It did something to us inside where after this happened Shawn Michaels was gone, the Streak would be dead, The Undertaker would put his hat and gloves in the middle of this ring and would disappear; and I would cut off that tape, I would take off my boots, I’d put this suit on and I would leave. And it would be over. All of it was over. The era had ended.
“For the three of us it changed, everything changed. The sound was gone, the feeling was gone, the goosebumps that we would all get was gone, it was the end of an era and I gotta tell you without sounding like a bitter veteran; our era was something special.
“So for the same reason that I said no, I picked up the phone and I called Vince back and I said, ‘Call Dainty in Australia and tell him I’m in’.
“I will take off this suit, I will lace up my boots and I will be The Game again if The Undertaker will pick up that hat, put on those gloves and be The Phenom one more time.”
Michaels has a lot of history with Triple H as they formed the legendary D-Generation X together and also faced each other in some intense battles for the World Heavyweight Championship in the early 2000s.
The four-time world champion also faced Undertaker in two unforgettable matches at WrestleMania 25 and 26.
