WWE WrestleMania XXX: Heading Toward 4 Triple Threat Matches?

    Daylight saving time begins very soon, which means spring is coming!

    YES! YES! YES!

    As WrestleMania XXX inches ever closer, not much has been made official when it comes to matches for the big card.

    So far, only the Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar match is set in stone despite the fact Batista seems locked in the main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

    As far as this company goes, one must never bank on something too quickly, for The Authority absolutely loves to change its mind when it suits its needs.

    This being said, it is being made more and more clear every week that the theme of this year's extravaganza will be the No. 3.

    Why not?

    Thirty has many "threes" in there, and too many Superstars have earned their places on the card, so how will Creative manage to fit all the right pieces in?

    Triple Threat matches, bien entendu!

    There is enough material to go around and more than enough participants. So, flip to the following page and begin to consider the inevitable card unfolding before your eyes.

The Most Obvious Forthcoming Match: The Shield Explodes

    This one has been rumored, per Bryan Alavarez of F4WOnline (subscription required), planned and made apparent for quite some time, and it could be fought over the United States Championship, whether it is still relevant or not.

    Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, collectively known as The Shield, have taken the WWE by storm and already have a victory together at last year's WrestleMania.

    Their track record is almost flawless, and their destruction will unfortunately come from within as dissension rears its ugly head.

    This past Friday on SmackDown, it was pretty obvious these three were on the outs. So in just a few weeks, the cracks in The Shield will be too great, and it will shatter to pieces, leaving a trail of broken memories and physical pain.

    While the U.S. title will most likely be up for grabs, this would be the opportunity for each member to sell themselves even further to the WWE Universe, and eventually, if what is expected actually happens, the winner of the match will begin his course toward newer heights.

    Personally, I see this as a step toward second-tier championship unification, where the winner of this one meets the intercontinental champion either as soon as Extreme Rules or at SummerSlam.

    No matter what, however, the members of The Shield will go their separate ways after April 6, 2014.

Clash of Titans over the Intercontinental Championship

    Finally, WrestleMania will have a real intercontinental title match on the card.

    Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show a few years back doesn't really rank up there with the legends, so redemption is right around the corner.

    Big E makes for a good champion. All he needs is to be inserted in a good program with talented performers.

    Enter the Real Americans, Cesaro and Jack Swagger.

    The members of this once-promising unit have been interfering in each other's matches against the big man, and now the writing's on the wall: A Triple Threat match is pretty much assured.

    It is a good way to go, definitely. All three tall guys have had a good year, and Cesaro, to point out someone, has been on a rocket ride to success as of late, so it is now time to capitalize on that and put all of them on the card.

    Nothing is official yet, of course, just as a winner here is unclear, but this should make for quite the impressive program. One that will be filled with high-powered action and the deviousness of Zeb Colter, no doubt.

    How Creative will book this particular one is still a mystery. One worth staying tuned for.

At Long Last: A Divas Championship Match at WrestleMania

    For me, this is a very anticipated program, as I have written, tweeted and blogged about it for years.

    WrestleMania has never had a Divas Championship match, and since this will be No. 30, things have to be bigger than big.

    AJ Lee is the most successful and longest-reigning champion to date. She is a great performer, a great interpreter and now has earned her place on the card, hands down.

    With her victory over the champion last night on SmackDown, Natalya is now well-deserving—and long overdue—of a title match.

    The Queen of Harts is one of the stars of the Total Divas series, and since it will begin its second season March 16, this calls for a much-appreciated dose of publicity.

    The other participant is a toss-up. Could it be Naomi, the fellow TD cast member who was embroiled in a feud with AJ recently before her in-ring accident a few weeks ago?

    This very athletic performer has defeated the champion in non-title matches on her own; therefore, she is due her opportunity. But will she be up and running by then?

    What about Tamina Snuka, AJ's personal body guard and destructive sidekick?

    There has been a teased annoyance between these two as of late, and it would be good to see the daughter of Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka be a part of the great show, considering her father was on the card at the very first WrestleMania.

    No matter how WWE spins this going forward, the pleasure will be all ours once these beautiful ladies of the squared circle get in that ring and show the entire world just how fabulous they are.

    It is the international day of women everywhere today, so kudos to you girls on getting your eventual match.

    You have earned it.

The Inevitable and Mandatory Addition of Daniel Bryan

    Randy Orton vs. Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event is not and has never really been set in stone.

    Daniel Bryan is the star of the hour, and he is hot, hot, hot!

    To put him anywhere else on the card would be pure folly and bad for business, because the fans go gaga for him every day and night, and rightfully so. He has captured the hearts of millions just by being himself.

    Orton and The Animal each have merits, but now the universe is against them. And since both are currently playing the role of the villain, what kind of program does that really sell?

    Most likely what will happen is Bryan will get his match against Triple H. However, some way, somehow, he will be inserted into the main event, probably by either host Hulk Hogan as a defiant act against the McMahons or simply because he will best The Game in singles combat.

    Either way, it is a most profitable endeavor. Fans would totally go for that, and it would be an impressive way to close the show by having a man who fought all the odds make his way to the top to vie for the ultimate prize in the game.

This Show Will Be Bigger Than Big

    This year will probably be the most successful edition of WrestleMania, and in such a historical city as New Orleans, the sky is the limit.

    There should be over 80,000 people there, which is enormous, and so the card has to reflect on that.

    Just the erupting cheers and boos will be well worth hearing, and who knows what kind of surprises the company has in store for everyone?

    No matter what, this will be the greatest event ever and the biggest night of the year, so imagination and optimism would be well advised.

    Things should get really exciting going forward, so stay tuned as the rest of the card unfolds before your very eyes.

    It is a month away, after all. Time flies when you are having fun.
