10. Triple H vs. Batista – Vengeance 2005
One of the best storylines in WWE history was Batista’s rise in Evolution. After much buildup, ‘The Animal’ finally challenged Triple H at WrestleMania 21 and won the World Heavyweight Championship. Things could not be settled there and a Hell in a Cell match was booked for Vengeance.
This stands as one of the best Hell in a Cell matches ever as these two brutally beat each other. Many of Triple H’s best matches have an additional stipulation on them as you will see on this list. This is one of the best examples of that as Triple H brought the aggression he is best known for.
9. Triple H vs. The Rock – SummerSlam 1998
Prior to his rise to the main event scene, Triple H and The Rock feuded over the Intercontinental Championship. You wouldn’t think of these two as Ladder Match performers by any means, but they showed a different style of match fans had not seen before.
Neither man has ever been much of a flyer so instead, they brawled and used the ladder as a weapon. The emphasis was put on drama rather than stunts and it resulted in one of the biggest matches of SummerSlam 1998. It wasn’t long before both men would find themselves on top of the business and doing battle over a much more prestigious prize.
8. Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan – WrestleMania XXX
Triple H has often been criticized for having slow and boring singles matches. Truthfully, much of that criticism has been earned but one match that stands out is his WrestleMania XXX battle with Daniel Bryan. Bryan had been tormented by ‘The Game’ and The Authority since SummerSlam and now everything had come to a head.
Bryan is one of the best in-ring performers in WWE history and the mix of new-wave wrestling and old-school wrestling was perfect on this night. The match was never boring and we saw a match people were genuinely invested in. People lost their minds when Bryan finally got the win and this stands as one of Triple H’s best modern matches.
