• Storyline Update On Brothers Of Destruction vs. D-Generation X Feud
After Triple H defeated The Undertaker in their ‘Last Time Ever’ match at WWE Super Show-Down with help from Shawn Michaels, Undertaker & Kane laid out HHH & HBK to end the show.
As we have noted before, we will now get a tag team match between The Brothers of Destruction (The Undertaker & Kane) & D-Generation X (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) at next month’s WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia.
Below is the storyline update that WWE posted ahead of tonight’s RAW:
The Brothers of Destruction strike back
“One last time. At WWE Super Show-Down, Triple H conquered The Undertaker in their No Disqualification Match that shattered a table, bent steel and pushed both longtime rivals to their limits.
With both Shawn Michaels and Kane entering the battle and taking full advantage of the lenient stipulation, the WWE Universe bore witness as four of the most iconic Superstars of all time made history Down Under in an incredible main event. However, as Triple H showed his respect for his defeated opponent after the bell, both The Deadman and The Big Red Machine lashed out at The Game and HBK in a horrific display.
What will be the fallout from this heinous assault?”
