WWE Hell in a Cell: Triple H says Undertaker clash at WrestleMania 28 was one of his best
'Rusev has tough task up against Big Show on Sunday night'
Last Updated: 23/10/14 2:49pm
Triple H will not be involved in any Hell in a Cell Matches this weekend – but he has had many battles in the barbaric metal compound over the years.
The Cerebral Assassin has stepped into the Cell nine times, combatting the likes of Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Batista, his father-in-law Vince McMahon and Cactus Jack, a man he describes as “one of the most sadistic characters in the history of the wrestling business”.
However, Triple H says his clash with The Undertaker inside The Devil’s Playground at WrestleMania 28 tops those aforementioned tussles – and even ranks as one of the highlights of his career.
DID YOU KNOW?
Triple H and The Undertaker have won more Hell in a Cell Matches (6) than any other WWE Superstar
The Game was beaten by The Phenom on that glittering night in Miami in April 2012, in a match officiated by his great friend Shawn Michaels, who was retired by The Undertaker two years previously.
But he told WWE.com: “To stand in there with The Undertaker, a man I possibly have more respect for than any other in this business, was possibly one of my favourite matches.
“With Shawn in there as referee, it was the end of an era and none of us walked out the same, but it was a really memorable experience.”
Seth Rollins will face former Shield stablemate Dean Ambrose inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday, while Randy Orton and John Cena will also step amid steel as they fight to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar’s next challenger.
The most highly-charged contest, though, could be one that WON’T be housed in the Cell, namely the powerhouse showdown between Rusev and Big Show.
Rusev, yet to be pinned or submitted since he joined WWE’s main roster earlier this year, drew Big Show’s ire on Monday Night Raw by kicking a United States soldier in the head.
Triple H feels that course of action could come back to bite The Bulgarian Brute, but warned devout American Big Show to not let emotions get the better of him.
“As impressive as Rusev has been, I would not want to step in the ring with an angry 7ft, 450-pound giant with a knockout punch,” said The Game. “It’s not a good place to be.
“One thing I know about Big Show is that he is passionate about US troops and has belief in the men and women who defend the freedom of the United States of America.
“All that passion is going to boil over at Hell in Cell, so the one question is going to be whether Big Show can control that passion.
“Rusev will be waiting for Big Show to make a mistake and if he does it won’t be pretty.”
