Brock Lesnar and Triple H seem poised to clash at WrestleMania 29. Not only are they two of the toughest brawlers in the WWE, but their matchup also touches on the most basic of emotions: revenge.
If their past encounters are any sign, these two behemoths of the ring will impress on The Grandest Stage of Them All with their emotional, revenge-fueled rematch.
What every good WrestleMania match needs is emotion. Not just from the wrestlers but from the fans. There needs to be an emotional connection to what is happening in the ring.
Think about some of the emotionally charged bouts from past feuds. Matt Hardy and Edge. Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan. Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair.
In each one of those feuds, they were fighting over something that resonated with fans. With Hardy and Edge it was the real-life betrayal of Lita. For Savage and Hogan, the bitter feelings of jealously over Miss Elizabeth. Michaels and Flair was all about the closing of the book on one of the greatest careers of all time.
Lesnar and Triple H have the same connection, only this time, it's about that most basic and visceral emotion: revenge.
The storyline of revenge will play out well with these guys. After all, not only did Lesnar beat Triple H at SummerSlam in 2012, but he also broke his arm—twice. While the break may have been kayfabe, it doesn't matter. In the world of the characters, it was real and demands to be avenged.
Both of these men are brawlers, pure and simple. Despite his background in amateur wrestling, Lesnar rarely pulls out his technical skills. Instead, he relies on brute force.
If there was any question on how tough the man is, look no further than his match with John Cena at Extreme Rules. Despite the scripted nature of wrestling, he still made Cena look like an amateur.
When these two men clash in their inevitable WrestleMania showdown, there will be no technique, no armbars or even bodyslams. But there will be plenty of pain and blood.
Look no further than what happened in the brawl on Monday Night Raw on Feb. 25. The two tore into each other like bears fighting for dominance. At one point, Triple H bounced Lesnar's head off the steel post, then clotheslined him through, rather than over, the barricade.
Lesnar and Triple H will impress once they step into the ring again. Because it will happen at WrestleMania, all the WWE needs to do is to let these guys go at it. What better way than in a No Holds Barred bout?
Theirs is a golden feud, full of history, backstory and genuine hardcore action. When these two beasts step into the ring, they're going to tear each other apart.
At WrestleMania, everything should be big. The event should be the place to end feuds. Let's see these two monsters of the ring tear each other apart and finish this thing for good.
