    Daniel Bryan Will Have To Beat Some Respect Out Of Triple H

    Without a doubt, Daniel Bryan is the most over superstar in WWE today and deserves to be in the main event of WrestleMania 30. He’s gotten a lot more comfortable on the mic and continues to put forth consistent performances night in and night out. Hell, WWE even relies on him to pull double duty, which is incredibly rare these days, but that just shows you how much faith they truly have in him. I like to think that Triple H sees Bryan’s true potential and his rhetoric of Daniel Bryan being a “B+ troll” is leading to a satisfying payoff.

    This Triple H Daniel Bryan feud has been boiling hot, but the question still remains: will Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H satisfy WWE fans at WrestleMania? Or will fans expect nothing less than Bryan competing in the main event and winning the WWE World Heavyweight Title?

    Whether you’re a Dragon fan or not, it’s clear to see that he’s been screwed out of winning the World Title multiple times since defeating John Cena cleanly at SummerSlam 2013. After the emotional and historic victory, special guest referee Triple H hit a Pedigree on Bryan, allowing Randy Orton to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase and steal the championship. One month later at Night of Champions, Bryan would have defeated Orton cleanly, but referee Scott Armstrong purposely gave a fast count (he hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since), which resulted in Bryan relinquishing the Title to Triple H the next night on Raw.

    After watching the last two weeks of Raw, it’s looking more inevitable that Bryan vs. Triple H will happen at WrestleMania 30. Bryan challenged him to a match and the Game just laughed it off – bringing up the assumption that Bryan is not an A+ player. Also last week, Bryan attacked Triple H, but of course, the King of Kings got the last laugh and ended the show by giving him a Pedigree.

    Overall, Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H makes sense. It is definitely a high-profile match-up and even though a lot of fans want to see Bryan compete in the main event of Mania, this (Authority) Triple H vs. Bryan storyline has dominated the last six months of WWE programming. Honestly, it’s been pretty compelling stuff. Sure, Bryan getting beat down and screwed out of the Title virtually every week has ran its course, but once Bryan hits his Busaiku Knee finisher and applies the Yes Lock – making Triple H tap out – then, finally, he will get his revenge.

    Some may think that the ultimate way to get back at Triple H and the Authority is to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 30, which may still be a possibility, but I don’t see it playing out that way. Trust me, I’d love to see Bryan pull double duty and have a WrestleMania moment, but we can’t forget the man he’s going to be wrestling. Triple H.

    There is no denying that planted within Triple H’s brain is a very egotistical trait. Everybody jokes and/or is serious about Triple H and his burying shovel, right? A good reflection of this is CM Punk. Punk was the hottest thing since last week’s Playboy and Triple H beat him, with multiple interferences and an appearance from Kevin Nash at Night of Champions 2011. Sure, Punk kicked out of a Pedigree, but in the end, Triple H overcame both Nash and Punk.

    I’m scared to say that there is a possibility of Triple H defeating Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30, which indeed would be shocking and highly illogical, but I firmly believe that Bryan will get the victory. That’s my biggest question mark about Bryan pulling double duty. Do you really think that Triple H will be okay with putting Bryan over, then going on to compete in the main event and perhaps even winning the Title? That makes Triple H look extremely weak. Therefore, I can see Bryan defeating Triple H (via submission), but cannot see Bryan competing in the main event.

    The Game Has A Solid WrestleMania Legacy

    With all the bad things people say about Triple H, we must remember that this is a guy who has also put over a lot of talent, especially at WrestleMania. Triple H has an 8-9 record at Super Bowl of wrestling and has put over guys like Chris Benoit (submission), Batista (pin-fall) and John Cena (submission). When you look at his WrestleMania stats, there is really no distinct connection between wins and losses. He’s put over Batista, Cena and Benoit but has defeated hot, up and coming talents like Chris Jericho, Booker T, Randy Orton and Sheamus.

    Daniel Bryan, on the other hand, has not yet recorded a singles victory at the Showcase of the Immortals. At WrestleMania 28, Bryan lost the World Heavyweight Title to Sheamus in 18 seconds and last year, he and Kane retained the WWE Tag Team Titles. A singles victory over Triple H may not be the final icing on the cake, but it would still be one hell of an achievement.

    One has to wonder what would have happened if CM Punk stayed with the company until his contract officially ran out. Original WrestleMania plans revealed CM Punk to take on Triple H, Batista to square off against Randy Orton and for Daniel Bryan to wrestle Sheamus, but with Punk’s departure things have changed drastically. Now, fans are most likely going to witness Sheamus vs. Christian, Bryan vs. Triple H and the originally scheduled main event between Randy Orton and Batista.

    To WWE, the main event looked good on paper, but the recent fan backlash towards Batista forced the Creative Team to turn The Animal heel, and having two heels face off in the main event of WrestleMania for the WWE World Heavyweight Title is much like Johnny Cochran’s Chewbacca Defense – it doesn’t make sense.

    Naturally, WrestleMania should showcase the best babyface taking on the biggest heel. Daniel Bryan is undoubtedly the best babyface and honestly, Batista is the biggest heel in WWE today. However, neither of them are the WWE World Heavyweight champion.

    Can These Guys Really Carry The WM30 Main Event?

    Even though they’ve had a great series of matches, fans have seen Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan far too many times and Batista must be included in the main event, so a Triple Threat match makes sense. Fans need a fresh main event match and it will be very interesting and intriguing to see what and if WWE changes things up to incorporate Bryan or another superstar in the main event. Including Bryan in the main event would be easy to do too. He has a clean non-title victory over Orton and Hulk Hogan is the special guest host, which means he can have a say in what goes on at the event.

    Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H has all the ingredients to make for a great match. The two have been involved in an intense storyline for months and Triple H is the sole reason why Bryan isn’t the current WWE World Heavyweight champion. I can see these two larger-than-life superstars competing in an instant classic.

    WrestleMania 30 is going to be the biggest event in WWE history and the card has not been finalized just yet. There are just so many questions that have been left unanswered and I can guarantee that the next 2-3 weeks of WWE programming will be relentless and entertaining.

    What is your take on Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H? Is the WWE making the right call by leaving Daniel Bryan out of the main event? Will Randy Orton vs. Batista be one of the worst WrestleMania main events in history? Let us know by posting here on the thread.

  2. To discuss? Like people do on forums and stuff.
  3. I have no doubts that Bryan is walking out as WWE Champion. I said this in another thread but I'll repeat it here because it's simple logic - they're not gonna want their 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania to end with a heel walking out as champion. They're gonna want a babyface to have that huge moment that Wrestlemania is notorious for, and with one of the biggest babyfaces of all time hosting the event (an event that he helped make into a spectacle, mind you), there's no way I can envision any other ending other than Bryan being crowned the new WWE Champion.
  4. I don't know why people think him wrestling 2 matchest on the same night is a bad idea? I mean 20 year ago at WM10 Bret Hart had 2 matchest. Lose the 1st but then walk of the main event at the New WWE Champion! This will even be better for Brayn since he going 2 win both matchest! other he going get a BIG CHECK! One for middle one for him match against HHH and A BIG MAIN EVENT CHECK FOR THE MAIN EVENT MATCH!
