Live report from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta:
The match spilled to the floor in the first minute. Triple H charged at Undertaker and they both went through the Cole Mine.
Undertaker went for Old School a minute later, but Triple H pulled him off the ropes and then clotheslined him out of the ring.
Triple H tried a Pedigree on the announce table, but Undertaker backdropped him off the table onto the floor.
At the 6-minute mark, Undertaker did a headfirst dive over the top rope reminiscent of the move he did against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXV. It was scary-looking, but he appeared to be OK.
At the 8-minute mark, Triple H hits a spinebuster through a table.
Back in the ring, Undertaker hit a chokeslam for a two count. There were dueling chants at this point.
After Undertaker hit Snake Eyes, Triple H landed another Spinebuster for a near fall.Triple H brought a chair into the ring, but Undertaker took it from him and nailed him in the back with it. Triple fired back with a Pedigree for a near fall at the 13-minute mark.
A minute later, Triple H kicked out of The Last Ride. Undertaker did the throat slash and hit a Tombstone at 16 minutes, but Triple H kicked out.
Triple H then hit a DDT on a chair, and both men were down. After they got to their feet, Triple H hit the Pedigree, but Undertaker kicked out at the last second. Triple H followed with yet another Pedigree, and Undertaker kicked out again.
Triple H nailed The Undertaker in the back with about nine chair shots and then collapsed to the mat in exhaustion.
Triple H hit him over the head with a chair (Undertaker appeared to get his hand up at the last second) at the 23-minute mark.
A weakened Undertaker tried to grab Triple H by the throat, but Triple H swatted it away. Triple H then did the throat slash and landed a Tombstone at 25 minutes. Undertaker kicked out and the crowd erupted.
Triple H slid backwards and stared at The Undertaker as if he were looking at someone who isn’t human.
Triple H grabbed his sledgehammer from under the ring. As he prepared to use it, Undertaker caught him in Hell’s Gate. Triple H struggled and eventually grabbed his sledgehammer, but Undertaker wouldn’t release the hold.
After being in the hold for a long time, Triple H went limp and the referee called for the bell at 29:25. With that, The Undertaker extended The Streak to 19-0.
Undertaker stayed down a long time after the match and was taken to the back on a cart.
This was by far the best match on the show to this point. While it wasn’t in the same class as the Undertaker-Shawn Michaels matches at the past two WrestleManias, it was still very good and had tremendous crowd heat.
Note: I've been told by several people who watched the show on TV that Triple H did lightly tap out.
