This will be the third match in their recent and final trilogy of matches that began at Wrestlemania 30 when Lesnar broke The Undertaker’s Undefeated Streak.

This is another trilogy to add to the list of some of the greatest wrestling trilogies to have been created by two performers so intertwined that it takes three matches to solve their issues and truly declare a better man.
