There are currently two prevalent thoughts around the WWE Universe over how the WrestleMania clash between Brock Lesnar and Triple H will play out.
The WWE is selling this match as a tale of redemption.
Triple H was taken to his lowest point after his loss to Lesnar at SummerSlam. He has seen his and his best friend’s—Shawn Michaels'—arms broken at the hands of The Beast. He has also seen his father-in-law Vince McMahon forced into hip surgery by the former UFC Heavyweight champion.
Everything is pushing towards Triple H winning the match and being able to stand tall over the evil that is Brock Lesnar.
The other school of thought is that Triple H has been so dominant over recent weeks he is bound to lose at ‘Mania.
It is not unusual for the WWE to push one wrestler over the other, only for the apparently weaker individual to rise up and gain the victory at the pay-per-view.
Add the rumor that Brock Lesnar has been guaranteed a run as champion in his new contract, and it would appear that The Game is coming to the end of his in-ring career.
Yet these two situations can happen simultaneously.
A no-holds-barred contest has the obvious advantage that the match can change momentum very quickly indeed. It also makes Triple H’s legendary sledgehammer a completely legal weapon.
No one in the modern era is so well connected with an individual weapon, and it is likely to be the difference-maker.
Yet fans can look to just two years ago when the no-holds-barred match between Triple H and The Undertaker saw one man win the match, but the other win the war. ‘Taker could barely get out of the arena on his strength and was not seen again for an entire calendar year.
If Lesnar put a similar beating on Triple H, then he top would get an enormous boost despite losing.
In this situation, Triple H being carried out of the arena is likely to be the last WWE fans see of The Game for several months.
