WWE has done itself a great disservice by labeling this rematch the "end of an era".
What does that even mean? What exactly is coming to an end?
The fabled Attitude Era has already reached its end, despite the fact that a number of top acts from that time are headlining this year's WrestleMania, including the Rock, Kane, Chris Jericho and Christian.
Plus, there are already rumblings of the Rock returning next year, while CM Punk has begun Twitter coaxing "Stone Cold" Steve Austin for a showdown at the same venue.
The Undertaker's undefeated streak isn't going to come to an end. The time and opponent for that was WrestleMania 21 against Randy Orton.
With an already unprecedented 12-consecutive victories under Taker's belt, the streak was entrenched enough in WWE to be an impressive and unbreakable record, but wasn't yet a spectacle unto itself.
Three years in to his WWE career, Orton was someone the company made no secret about having a long term investment in.
Already the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history, ending the streak would have shattered another record had the "Legend Killer" made good on his promise to bury the Deadman, but the decision came down to keep the streak in tact.
Nonetheless, their quality match added to Orton's luster and credibility, as well as the Undertaker's mystique.
Careers aren't going to end this year. If WWE knew for certain this would mark the last WrestleMania appearance of either Triple H or Undertaker, they would promote it because it's good business, as they did in anticipation of Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels.
Instead, this overwritten tagline of "end of an era" brings up retirement questions while distracting from an already hyperbolic event (Streak! Special ref! Hell in a Cell!). Like a Triple H promo, they just didn't know when to quit.
Last year's "slobberknocker" told a great story in the closing minutes.
Undertaker outmaneuvered Triple H, locking him in a submission. Triple H desperately tried to reach his sledgehammer, but in the end, was forced to tap. It was great visual storytelling, and an emotionally investing finish.
As a gimmick, Hell in a Cell doesn't really add anything. Unlike traditional cage matches, the participants can't even make use of the escape strategy that lent to high drama and classic encounters featuring Bob Backlund against Pat Paterson, and Bret versus Owen Hart.
I'm anticipating the same kind of "garbage" match between Undertaker and Triple H that we saw the previous year, except covered by a cage. As with every previous Hell in a Cell, I'm sure there will be a lot of down time to set up a couple of high spots.
Prediction: What I believe will be different this year, if the language on WWE TV has been any indication, is that there will be blood.
I'm expecting the company will take full advantage of their PPV status and unleash some NWA-style "crimson masks" for several reasons—to evoke this other era they spent time and money promoting, to set the match apart from the other contests on the crowded card and because a little color will go a long way for the two men to thrill the crowd without having to take any unnecessary risks or high spots.
