confront Triple H (WATCH | PHOTOS)
As John Laurinaitis gave himself high job ratings, WWE COO Triple H came out to call the Interim GM a spineless backstabber. After making him sweat out what his fate would be – including hinting at a Gauntlet Match and joining the legendary Kiss My Ass Club – The Game said he was going “to do what needs to be done.” But just as it sounded as if Triple H were going to wish Laurinaitis well in his future endeavors, The Undertaker’s ominous gong sounded, announcing his dark presence.
As The Phenom made his way to the ring in front of a shocked WWE Universe, Triple H stood equally as stunned. As the two sized each other up, The Phenom signaled for Triple H’s demise, while focusing his dark gaze on the WrestleMania XXVIII banner high over head. After some intense moments with no words spoken, The Gamed patted Undertaker on the shoulder and walked out of the ring.
Following the dramatic stare down, what is going through Triple H's mind? Why did he walk away? Is John Laurinaitis fired? Sound off now at WWE InterAction.
