Why Wrestlemania 28 will truly be an 'end of an era'

Ever since Triple H accepted Undertaker's challenge for a third go-around match at Wrestlemania 28 in Hell in a Cell, I have been deciphering what it truly means when they say the match will be "an end of an era."
I thought it would mean that one of their careers come Sunday ends.
Triple H is 42 years old and Undertaker is closing in on 50. Both future hall of famers wrestle on a "special attraction" basis.
Wear and tear on the body has weighed on both over the years, and with WWE going in a youth movement of pushing future superstars, they have practically stepped aside and have given younger wrestlers an opportunity in the spotlight.
While I thought the "end of an era" meant one or the other's career would end, I think this match being the finale means that they will finally pass the torch to WWE's future stars.
Taker' and Triple H are not lying when they say they are the last two remaining from their era.
Both have a combined 20 world championships between them and were the top stars from an era that brought more eyballs to wrestling than at any other time.
Wrestlemania 28 will be the passing of the torch from Taker, Triple H, and even, Shawn Michaels to a whole crop of new talent who are ready to seize the spotlight for Wrestlemania's to come.
Hopefully 10-15 years from now, we see two wrestlers will put an exclamation point to another great era.
