This is not the Battle of Atlanta. This is not Buzz Sawyer and Tommy Rich. This is not about two wrestlers who wrestled almost every night in the early part of the '80s where the two men bled every night and nearly killed each other.
Although there is great potential in Lesnar vs. Triple H, the WWE must realize this is not the type of feud that has a major amount of shelf life and therefore, it must come to an and in 35 days.
Anything else would be overkill.
The WWE was smart to sign Lesnar to a contract that runs through WrestleMania 31, according to cagesideseats.com. But what happens to Lesnar following his latest run-in with Triple H, a part-time talent and full-time behind the scenes creator? Does someone one else step up and make something magical work in ring with arguably the biggest question mark in the WWE?
The room for error here is slim, and the potential for error is great.
Welcome to the dilemma the WWE is faced with. One thing is for certain, the company cannot hang its hat on the COO of the WWE bailing out the company by getting in the ring when the mood fits the situation. This is not Vince McMahon getting in the ring, saying a few words, stirring the pot and claiming his dominance over the company he created.
Had this been a Stone Cold vs. McMahon type of situation, this would be different.
But, it isn't and is set for an epic fail.
I wrote last week that I thought the idea of Lesnar vs. Triple H was a part of WrestleMania 29 because it was needed, but it was also created because there are still question marks about The Undertaker's return and the fact CM Punk is still without a dance partner.
I still stand correct because The Dead Man hasn't shown up on Raw and, well, CM Punk is still matchless. We should see that settled Monday night, hopefully.
Triple H and Lesnar provide another form of thrill for McMahon: Two brawlers going the distance, such as Sheamus and Wade Barrett potentially locking it up again.
It will be interesting to see how the creative team plots this feud. Will we see both wrestlers every week exchanging barbs? Will Shawn Michaels get involved like last year? Does the WWE have a plan for after WrestleMania?
Many doors may open because of this match, but they should all close immediately after the WWE's greatest show ends.
