This almost seems like a forgone conclusion at this point, as Bryan is simply too popular with the crowd to give him the lesser choices previously mentioned.
It goes without saying that logic is also on the side of this match happening, as the story has been building since SummerSlam.
Daniel Bryan should rightfully seek vengeance when it comes to The Authority and having him face off with someone like Sheamus does not fulfill that promise.
Plus, having this match as the last one of the night solves one of the issues plaguing WrestleMania XXX at the moment.
As explained in further detail here, Batista vs. Randy Orton has the potential to be a dud if it ends WrestleMania.
Having this match close the show, on the other hand, makes it all but certain that the crowd would be red hot going into the main event.
What better way to finish WrestleMania XXX than to have the most over person in the company celebrating with an entire arena doing the "Yes" chant?
For that matter, who else is going to face Triple H at WrestleMania if it isn't Bryan?
With CM Punk missing and potentially gone for good, the most prominent wrestler outside of John Cena would be Sheamus, and rehashing his feud with Triple H from years before cannot and would not matter in comparison.
At this point, if Bryan is not inserted into the title picture in some capacity, WWE would be fools not to have him defeat Triple H in the main event of WrestleMania.
What would you like to see? Are there any opponents you hope Daniel Bryan will go up against if he isn't in the WWE Championship match?
