It's just something that occurred to me, but what if instead of Bryan actually gaining two huge victories (one over Triple H, the other in a WWE Championship match), he actually only defeats HHH by a disqualification? I know it's not likely to happen, and I'm willing to give HHH the benefit of the doubt (in real life) that he'll put over Bryan and be fine with him winning a whole separate match later on, but still. At some point during the match, let's say Triple H gets fed up and increasingly frustrated with not being able to put Bryan away and decides to say fuck it, and takes out his old trusty sledge hammer and just nails Bryan with it and gets himself disqualified. He then continues to do damage with it in an attempt to injure Bryan to the point where Bryan can't possibly compete in the championship match later in the night. (Of course, Bryan, being the ever resilient and never say die babyface that he is, manages to limp put and pull off a victory anyway.) The next night, Triple H tries to bullshit people into believing that if he could have beat Bryan if he wanted to but decided it was best to just revert back to his old ways and make it easy by ending Bryan's career entirely right then and there. Of course people would know he was bullshitting and only got himself disqualified to avoid having to take a loss, but being full of shit is a natural part of being a heel. At the same time though, by not actually SEEING him eat the pin fall or submit to the Yes Lock, it can make a difference (albeit a small one perhaps.) Triple H can move on to his next feud while maintaining a certain heat and 'aura' about himself since he wouldn't have officially jobbed in the normal ways (pin fall, submission) just yet. I know many feel Bryan picking up a clean, decisive victory over HHH brings the whole rivalry with him full circle, but honestly, HHH needing to get himself DQed still sort of shows that Bryan (in HHH's mind) was more than capable of winning, and meanwhile, the MAIN thing people want to see - Bryan winning the gold - still happens regardless. It wouldn't be a bad idea imo.
