Daily Wrasslin' Match: Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy - No Mercy 2008

Before Triple H's two classic matches at WrestleMania 27 and 28, people considered The Game to be well and truly past it. 

People thought he was overrated, sticked to his "4 mechanical moves" (probably big fans of Bret Hart ironically) and never got good matches out of people.

Enter No Mercy 2008. In a match that was overshadowed by the Ladder Match between Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Jeff Hardy put on the match of the night (in my opinion). 

Triple H was simply excellent in this match. His ring psychology was top notch as always, he came across as the veteran against the hungry challenger in Jeff Hardy and also worked extremely well with him.

So, with that said, here's this brilliant match featuring one of the most underrated wrestlers in history. Oh, and to all the Triple H haters who think he stopped being good after the year 2002 - checkmate.
