Triple H Returns To Raw Set To Defend The WWE Championship Against Randy Orton

The speculation might be coming to an end. After the WWE has thrown some major curve-balls at us over these past few months, we might finally know what the main event of Wrestlemania XXV is going to be.

It's not looking to be Randy Orton vs. John Cena or Triple H vs. Edge. As of now (and keep in mind things can change) the most likely main event for Wrestlemania XXV will be Randy Orton vs. Triple H for the WWE Championship.

With two Smackdown Superstars winning both major championships last night, it's only logical to assume that something is going to give. With such a major changed needed, we might finally see Triple H's return to Monday Night Raw.

I'll warn you right here, possible spoiler alert for what you'll read below.

Things are starting to come full-circle and more so then you might think.

Nine months ago, Randy Orton broke his collar-bone in a brutal Last Man Standing match against Triple H for the same WWE Championship that he holds today.

The devistating injury kept Orton out of action for months. Ever since his return, he has been more vicous then ever.

Even with Triple H on another brand, the Legend Killer has managed to make a name for himself at The Game's expense along the way.

Randy Orton's Legacy managed to defeat both Triple H and Batista in their first official match as a group. Triple H could do nothing as his close friend was hit with the RKO and pinned for the three-count.

Weeks later, Randy Orton finished the job.

In a two on three handicap match that pinned The Legacy against John Cena and Batista, Randy Orton took out Batista for good. An RKO and a punt to the skull was all it took and ever since, there has been no Batista.

Triple H watched his friend utterly destroyed on national television and due to the fact that he was a member of the Smackdown roster, he could do nothing about it.

Then came the Royal Rumble. The match that Triple H fought so hard to even become a part of was brought to a disappointing end when Randy Orton used the distraction of his Legacy to eliminate The Game.

Which brings us to our current situation.

Randy Orton has taken out both Vince and Shane McMahon. Stephanie has been forced to watch her family fall one by one to the Legend Killer.

You want to know who she's been on the phone with all this time?

Let me give you a hint. If you were married to a 250-pound muscle machine who just happened to mentor the very man who's taking out your family, who do you think you'd call?

Enter Triple H.

Expect to see Edge bring the World Heavyweight Championship back to Smackdown. The WWE creative team will not separate him and his on-screen wife. Which means that one of the major champions has to be headed to Raw.

It would also be possible to see John Cena jump to Smackdown but that might be a bit far-fetched at the moment. For now, it would only seem logical for Triple H to return to the show that was once his.

He was moved to Smackdown to bring the brand some legitimacy as it debuted on My Network TV and he has done that. The move was also to accommodate his real-life schedule with Stephanie McMahon. I think we all know where Hunter can find her these days.

So there you have it, my premature prediction of the future of Monday Night Raw. Brought to you from the traveling word of gossip and outlined in a way that could potentially make sense. We'll have to all wait and see what happens in the weeks to come.

Stay tuned.
