Brock Lesnar and Triple H will take their intense rivalry to new heights when they square off in a No Holds Barred match at WrestleMania 29 with Triple H's career at stake.
Already one of the most exciting rivalries in recent memory, this stipulation will guarantee fans see not only one of the best matches of the night on April 7, but also one of the best matches of 2013.
This feud, dating back to spring of 2012, has been so personal that it wouldn't shock anybody if we saw Stephanie McMahon, Sable, Vince McMahon and Paul Heyman brawling alongside Lesnar and Triple H in New Jersey next month.
Many fans, myself included, frowned on the idea that Lesnar and Triple H would conduct their SummerSlam 2012 rematch at WrestleMania 29. However, these two legendary performers have proven fans wrong in recent weeks, highlighted by their bloody brawl on Feb. 25, as this has been the most exhilarating and consistent feud since The Rock and CM Punk parted ways following Elimination Chamber.
Though WrestleMania is generally saved for dream matches we've never seen, WWE is providing fans with rematches that still draw great interest from casual and diehard fans. We may have seen WrestleMania 29's handful of main events before at different events, but viewers can take solace in knowing that we are guaranteed to witness fantastic matches from each main event, starting with Lesnar versus Triple H.
Their first encounter last August at SummerSlam was a dream match for many that was one of the best matches of 2012. It had everything a fan could ask for, as it was perfectly paced and featured hard-hitting action that resembled a back-alley street fight more than a professional wrestling bout.
You weren't just watching a pro wrestling match that night—you were watching a straight-up brawl that intensified as the action unfolded, and you felt the emotion seeping into your body.
Considering how this storyline has played out, it only makes sense for Triple H to defeat Lesnar at WrestleMania. Lesnar has already defeated Triple H on pay-per-view, broke his arm twice in the storyline and even broke Triple H's friend Shawn Michaels' arm on top of destroying Triple H's father-in-law, Vince McMahon.
The destruction Lesnar has caused in Triple H's life and Triple H citing Lesnar's attack on Vince as the reason for his return should signal a victory for "The Game" at 'Mania, but we've seen WWE swerve fans for the sake of a swerve, so it's not unreasonable to think Lesnar goes up 2-0 to send "The King of Kings" into retirement.
Now with their WrestleMania stipulation, we're going to see another incredible match that will define what professional wrestling, especially WWE, is all about. These two future Hall of Famers are ring generals and know exactly what it takes to tell a compelling story inside and outside the squared circle.
Expect buckets of blood, a plethora of stiff shots, perfectly-timed spots and an appearance from a fan-favorite sledgehammer. Now that Triple H's career is on the line and the match will be contested with no disqualification or count out, fans will be more intrigued than ever to see this bout.
The in-ring psychology and brutality will blow fans away en route to a memorable match that has the ability to not only steal the show from CM Punk versus The Undertaker and John Cena versus The Rock, but also go down as one of the most intense WrestleMania matches ever.
