The Undertaker vs. Triple H: The Singles Matches


WWE hosted Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia on October 5th with the main event The Undertaker vs. Triple H for the last time ever.  Triple H had Shawn Michaels in his corner while Kane was in the corner of The Undertaker.

The match itself was decent, not their greatest encounter but considering the physical condition of the Undertaker the last few years it was better than I expected.  I know there are some that feel the Undertaker should never lose again, and other that will say of course Triple H one his ego is too big to let him lose. 

If you look at the history of singles matches between Triple H & The Undertaker you would notice that Hunter has come out on the losing end the majority of the time.

October 6, 2018 Super Show-Down, Melbourne, Australia
Triple H with Shawn Michaels pinned The Undertaker with Kane

Total Matches  33

Triple H: 6 wins, 24 losses, 3 no contests

The Undertaker: 24 wins, 6 loses, 3 no contests

Of the thirty three matches Triple H pinned Undertaker four times winning two by disqualification, Undertaker pinned Triple H seven times, twelve wins coming from Casket matches and five by disqualification.  

In the grand scheme of things even with Triple H getting the win at Super Show-Down he is far from equaling the amount of Victories that The Undertaker has over him.  That and with Triple H winning it makes sens for Undertaker and Kane to attack Triple H and HBK after the match to set up the tag match at Crown Jewel on November 2nd.
