WASHINGTON, D.C. -- After weeks of bloody mind games, The Game came ready to play in the nation's capital and proved his mettle with metal against Umaga.
 
Fifty-nine percent of the WWE Fan Nation chose to have Triple H and Umaga battle in a Street Fight instead of a First Blood Match or Steel Cage Match, and The Cerebral Assassin showed his ingenuity, endurance and appetite for destruction as he and his trusty sledgehammer powered past the McMahon-backed monster. A sledgehammer, a steel chair and even the crowd barriers were all at the disposal of the 11-time World Champion, and they helped to slow the Samoan Bulldozer's momentum.
 
The match was on from the moment Umaga showed his face. Triple H attacked the savage, fighting him across and through the computer keyboard-like entrance set. The contest even spilled into the crowd, who had voted for the Street Fight over the past few weeks on WWE.com.
 
At times, Triple H seemed overpowered by Umaga, as the former Intercontinental Champion tossed him around like a rag doll and crushed his ribs with a breath-sapping bear hug. The end seemed near for The Game as the Samoan Bulldozer used the three announcers' desks as a runway and delivered a running head butt, sending them both crashing through the ECW announcers' desk.
 
But after dodging a splash from the monster, The Game pulled out his sledgehammer and was able to connect with Umaga's cranium. A Pedigree to the stunned beast led to a three-count for an exhausted Triple H.
 
As The Game celebrated with the Washington, D.C., crowd, he raised his sledgehammer high, knowing that he had brought down the hammer, so to speak, on this vicious and personal rivalry.

"He's one big tough bad-ass Samoan," Triple H told WWE.com after the match. "One thing I promised people tonight was, no matter what the match type was, it was going to be a war, and it was. I got my hand raised, but neither one of us won. This match took something out of both of us, and I'm sure it's not the end of [our rivalry.]"

But it brought The Game glee to him to think that perhaps somewhere in the nation's capital, the Chairman of WWE was cursing under his breath.
