• WWF Veteran Explains Why It Would’ve Made More Sense To Have The Undertaker Win At WWE Super Show-Down
As seen at WWE Super Show-Down, Triple H defeated The Undertaker in their ‘Last Time Ever’ match after interference from Shawn Michaels.
During an appearance on Figure 4 Daily, Old School WWF Veteran Lance Storm explained why it would’ve been more sense to have The Undertaker defeat Triple H:
“Why did Hunter win that match? Wouldn’t it have made so much sense for the Brother Of Destruction to screw Hunter and then Hunter could beg his friend to come back?
Then his friend could say, ‘I’m honoring my word and I’m honoring the stipulation with the match with The Undertaker and then have Undertaker straight up come out and say: ‘This ain’t about respect, you ain’t coming back because you’re scared. Don’t do it out of respect to me — I’m letting you come back but I know you won’t cause you’re scared’ and let Hunter talk Shawn into coming back so he’s a hero for saving his friend rather than…
Hunter screwed Taker because they did they: ‘This match is now a no-disqualification!’ And they got the shot of Taker’s face going: ‘What?!’ And Hunter laughed and then Shawn – like it was the ‘secret plan.’ The secret plan finally happened!
It did, Hunter screwed him by not telling him it was going to be No DQ, Hunter and Shawn had the plan to screw him so he did. It’s like, why do we want Shawn to come back after you’re the ones who screwed things up.”
