David Otunga (with John Laurinaitis) vs Ezekiel jackson (with Theodore Long)
The crowd starts a chant for Zeke, and he slams Otunga down. Otunga is able to take control with a Side Headlock, but Zeke quickly fights out and hits a Clothesline, followed by a few in the corner. He then misses a Stinger Splash, and Otunga hits The Verdict for the win.
Winner: David Otunga
After the match, we see a replay of what happened last week between Shawn Michaels and Triple H. We see Undertaker's feet walking backstage, and "The Memory Remains" plays as the announcers say he's next.
Back from the break, Undertaker's music plays and he gets a big pop. 'Taker walks out wearing his hooded entrance attire (WWE '12 players know what I mean). Once in the ring, 'Taker says for nearly a year, he has realized the beating he took last year at WrestleMania, and it has been a mental living hell. He says he cannot bear it anymore, so he challenged Triple H to one more match to end the uncertainty. He says he never expected Triple H to say no in his wildest nightmares. He says the choice was not Triple H's to make however, and that they are on the verge of the apocalypse on their era of wrestling. They are the last of their kind. He says Triple H has to stop lying to himself about this, and he will not lie to 'Taker. He says Triple H will come out here and look him in the eyes. Keep in mind that his hood is still on through all of this. He says this is far bigger than the two of them, it is, the apocalypse. Triple H's music hits and he comes out to another great pop. Once in the ring, Triple H is about to say the same thing about feeling pity for 'Taker that he's already said, but 'Taker tells him to shut up and say she's just coming up with excuses. Triple H says this is the end of an era, but their fate is not to end it, their fate is to ensure that it carries on. Triple H says it's his fate to make sure the WWE exists, and Undertaker's is to be the leader, and lead the way for the new generation. Triple H says he won't extinguish that flame because it's bad for business. Undertaker asks if it's bad for business if he's gone, or if it's bad for business if Triple H would be gone. Triple H says it's just plain bad for business.
Helmsley says if 'Taker would look inside himself, he would realize that he's not asking Helmsley for redemption, he's asking for an end. Triple H says he refuses to be the one to end the Undertaker. Triple H starts to leave, but Undertaker calls him a coward, and Helmsley makes his way back into the ring, and he gets hot. He says he's tired of people calling him a coward, but realizes he's doing exactly what 'Taker wanted him to, and settles back down. He says he's sorry, but the answers no. Helmsley then leaves back up the ramp, and 'Taker says he just figured it out. He says Triple H knows he can't do what Shawn couldn't do because Shawn was always better than Helmsley. Triple H takes his jacket off and walks back down to the ring, and gets face to face with the Deadman. Triple H says this has nothing to do with Shawn, and he knows he can get the job done. Triple H says that if Undertaker wants an end at WrestleMania...he's got it. Triple H says if they do this, they go all the way, he'll face 'Taker under one condition...Hell in a Cell! Undertaker leaves to "The Memory Remains" as Triple H looks on in the ring. We go to commercial.
