If Brock Lesnar and Triple H are going to have another match at WrestleMania―it should be a Hell in a Cell match.

The Undertaker and Ryback were my two top choices for Lesnar's opponent at WrestleMania 29.

Since the summer, we've all heard rumors of a rematch between Triple H versus Brock Lesnar set to take place at the biggest show of the year. I, like many others, groaned at the sound of this.

Based on Lesnar's return to television on Raw where he delivered an F-5 to Vince McMahon―it seems this is setting up for Triple H to come defend his family and company's honor.

This match is going to happen and it should be a Hell in a Cell match.

A physical gimmick match is appropriate given the history between these two in the storyline. Lesnar beat Triple H. He broke Triple H's arm. He broke his best friend's arm. If Triple H is going to come back and challenge Lesnar again, it should be in a match Triple H can claim he has an advantage in. On the surface to WWE fans, he does. Then, Lesnar can respond with, “Are you dumb? I've made millions off of being trapped in a cage with someone and beating them up.”

The gimmick of a Hell in a Cell match will draw to everyone. Casual fans already drawn in by the two monster names of Brock Lesnar and Triple H. The hardcore fans get a Hell in a Cell stipulation.

Gimmick and stipulation matches are traditionally used to help settle rivalries. When the feud has gotten to an emotional level where a typical match won' suffice. Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman did a terrific job last summer building to SummerSlam.

They did terrific despite the lack of consistency they had in booking. The angle would be addressed one week and then disappear for a few weeks based on Triple H, Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar all not being regular weekly on-air talents at that time.

Add Vince McMahon in the fold and the fact it's building to WrestleMania―the groans from fans turn into the “cha-ching” sound of a cash register.
