Things are about to get a lot more intense in the WWE.
With AJ Lee dropping knowledge on every diva in the company, CM Punk getting abused by Paul Heyman and Curtis Axel and, of course, our favorite vegan trying to remain upright as he is pummeled by Randy Orton and the Shield, another angle we haven’t touched on could very well happen.
Because of his desire to protect the family interests and his personal investment in Orton, could Triple H return to the ring and wrestle?
Just to be sure we are all on the same page, the King of Kings never officially returned after his last match with Brock Lesnar.
The idea of Triple H in the ring sets up nicely for Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series. By then, the WWE will have undergone an nWo-like revolt of superstars who will walk across the imaginary picket line in support of Daniel Bryan. And a five-man team of Orton, Wade Barrett, two of the members of the Shield and Triple H vs. a quintet of Bryan, Big Show, Dolph Ziggler, Miz and Mark Henry makes perfect sense.
More importantly, Triple H’s track record in the ring lately has not been stellar and getting in the ring again as a heel bully makes him the powerhouse he once was. Hell in a Cell and Survivor Series are two pay-per-view events Triple H would do well in.
Monday night was a night where Triple H as COO of the WWE bullied the entire roster and held their careers over their heads if they got involved in the Bryan Gauntlet match.
This is not a case where Eric Bischoff got in the ring with the likes of Larry Zbyszko or Ric Flair’s son. This is about the WWE and protecting an investment. This is about protecting a new direction and a chance to get back toward the Attitude Era. You won’t be seeing Vince McMahon in the ring any time soon. Those days are gone forever.
Right now Randy Orton and Triple H are the new power couple in professional wrestling. They should be strong together in and out of the ring.
