A Triple Threat Match For the WWE Title is Slated for WrestleMania XXX

on

A Triple Threat Match for the WWE title is slated for WrestleMania XXX. According to a new edition of the Figure Four Weekly newsletter, penned by Bryan Alvarez of F4Wonline.com, the latest WrestleMania lineup that he received states that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship bout that will take place on April 6 in New Orleans is now set up as “Batista vs Orton vs ?”

Alvarez goes on to say that the question mark listed on the lineup allows the possibility of Daniel Bryan getting in the championship match at WrestleMania XXX. As we at WrestlingRumors.net previously suggested in various editions of Wrestling Rumors Radio and “WRESTLING WARM-UP,” there are two ways that we could see Bryan get inserted into the championship match in New Orleans.

Bryan could earn the opportunity of challenging Batista and Randy Orton by proving he is an “A+ player.” The easy way for this to happen is for Bryan to defeat the man who has constantly held him down, “The Game,” Triple H. With CM Punk away from the company, the proposed Triple H vs Punk match is not going to happen. This is why Bryan and Triple H began building towards a bout between each other during the Feb. 24 edition of “Monday Night Raw.” Alvarez agrees with this possibility in his report.

Another way Bryan could get inserted into the championship match is by WrestleMania XXX host, Hulk Hogan. While this avenue is much more of a stretch, Hogan could arrive on the scene just before Batista and Orton hook up and want to give the fans, “what they want to see…brother.” Alvarez also says that Hogan’s involvement in the angle could also be possible.

The main event was not the only match listed on the lineup they received however, as other bouts were penciled in on the card. Apparently, the card for WrestleMania XXX could look a LOT like this…

LATEST RUMORED WRESTLEMANIA XXX CARD: 

1) Big E vs. Dean Ambrose to unify the United States and Intercontinental Championships

2) Luke Harper & Erick Rowan vs. Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns

3) Sheamus vs. Christian

4) Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust

5) NXT competitors face off (likely Zayn vs ?)

6) John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

7) Daniel Bryan vs Triple H

8) Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar (confirmed)

9) Batista vs Randy Orton vs ? for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (semi-confirmed)

WWE officials likely understand that the New Orleans crowd would not respond well to Batista and Orton facing off in a singles match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, which is why they are looking at making it a Triple Threat. If they hold off on inserting another competitor in the main event, then it is possible that Triple H vs Daniel Bryan, or Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar could close the show.

If Bryan vs Triple H takes place early on the card, then it is quite possible that Bryan will face off against “the Viper” and “the Animal” and capture the WWE title.

    i already did i dont believe it cause batista is winning the title so why have daniel in the match if hes still gonna loseg

    • https://www.facebook.com/wrestlingrumors Wrestling Rumors

      He could win it, Batista is heel now, and so is Orton. Heels rarely win at Mania.

      That said, if Batista was promised a Mania win when he signed his contract, then putting Bryan in the match at LEAST puts him in the main event, and builds towards Batista/Bryan at the next PPV.

      Either way, it’s the best possible idea for the company to add Bryan into this match.

      nah its just another way for vince to screw with the daniel bryan fans batista will win what would shock fans have cm punk return at mania and win the title but hes really gone

    They can’t possibly keep it Batista/Orton unless they really don’t give a crap

    • https://www.facebook.com/wrestlingrumors Wrestling Rumors

      Exactly

    If they put Bryan in the main event then it’s too predictable. Either the face wins or Bryan gets screwed over again. Same stuff every week.

    • https://www.facebook.com/wrestlingrumors Wrestling Rumors

      We say this every week…predictability is not a bad thing. The crowd in New Orleans…and fans watching at home…would MARK OUT for Bryan getting into that match. Period.

      Elimination Chamber was the most predictable PPV in recent memory. Still enjoyable.

    Just anyone else in that match would make it better cause let’s face it Batista can not compete. The guy can barely speak after a 5 min match

    Oh and boring as he’ll

    Wouldn’t mind a fatal 4 way

  • justste

    what’s worse way to end mania, bryan not even being in the main event or him being the match but not winning the title

    • Philip27

      Him not being in the match at all… At least, if he is in the match, people will care about it…

      And we can get Batista vs Daniel Bryan afterwards…

    So it’s Orton/Batista/Title Abeyance?

  • Jake Jarmel

    If Bryan beats HHH in his match he gets to be the third member in the Championship match. Would be epic!!!!! WWE is too stupid to do that.

  • Bulkster

    I really hope the third person is The Miz!

  • https://www.facebook.com/potatochipmunch Tyron Escat

    reigns

  • Daniel Strandberg

    the third guy is Cm Punk ! :)

  • Padres4life

    if Bryan wins the title at WM it’ll be the biggest moment ever.
