#1 When Triple H couldn’t use the sledgehammer
During the match, The Undertaker locked Triple H inside his signature Hell’s Gate submission maneuver. The hold was countered using a sledgehammer as The Cerebral Assassin choked The Deadman using the wooden handle, and forced him to release the hold.
Seven years ago, these two superstars faced each other in a No Holds Barred match. In the closing moments of that match, Triple H was caught in the same hold. He tried the best he could to get out of the hold, and was looking to use the hammer to do that as well.
However, The Undertaker managed to keep him away from using the offensive weapon as he pulled him deep inside the hold. Ultimately, The Game had nowhere to go, and was forced to submit, marking his loss in that match.
