Triple H: set to face Undertaker

Sky Bet

After several weeks, WWE fans finally discovered the meaning behind the cryptic "2.21.11" videos when both The Undertaker and Triple H took to the ring on Raw.

With WrestleMania just six weeks away, two of WWE's finest didn't even breathe a single word when they faced off in the middle of the ring this past Monday night.

Instead, they each acknowledged the WrestleMania sign in the arena and strongly indicated an agreement to face one another on 'The Grandest Stage of Them All'.

Elsewhere on a packed edition of Raw, John Cena addressed the comments made about him by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson last week. Cena went old school and cut a promo with real attitude.

Then later in the night, Cena found himself paired with The Miz at the anonymous Raw GM's request to face WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater.

Short reign

Despite their animosity for each other, the WWE Champion and Cenation leader proved victorious and captured the championships - although their reign turned out to be a very short one!

In the quickest WWE Tag Team Championship reign in history, the two men who will collide at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship lost their tag team titles when Miz stabbed his partner firmly in the back.

The end of Miz and Cena's brief reign began when, immediately following their title win, Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater invoked their rematch clause. With their colleagues in The Corre looking on, Gabriel and Slater put forth a respectable effort in order to win back the titles.

Just when it appeared the result would be the same, however, 'The Cleveland Screamer' betrayed Cena. He levelled his partner with a Skull Crushing Finale as the referee was distracted, costing the pair the belts.

After defeating the athletic John Morrison with the GTS, CM Punk took to the mic and warned bitter rival Randy Orton to keep his distance. Rather than follow Punk's advice, The Viper instead attacked the Nexus leader.

And finally just hours after Alberto Del Rio defeated Kofi Kingston in a non-title match at Sunday's Elimination Chamber event, Intercontinental Champion Kingston couldn't wait for retaliation.

Before the bell rang, The Dreadlocked Dynamo pummelled the Mexican. As Kofi rained down blows, Del Rio's personal ring announcer, Ricardo Rodriguez, struck him from behind. The distraction allowed Del Rio the upper hand until referees could step in and halt the ruthless assault.

WWE Raw returns next week from the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, New York. Follow all the action live and in high definition next Monday Night from 2am on Sky Sports HD3.
