Daniel Bryan Could Save Stuttering WrestleMania XXX Main Event

For such an important WrestleMania in a historical sense for the WWE, the company appear to have created a major drama for themselves this year.

Granted, it shouldn't have really worked out like this. The people who set up Batista vs. Randy Orton didn't know that Batista was going to garner such a negative reaction upon his return to the company. In essence, that is the major reason why the main event for this year's WrestleMania lacks so much intrigue.

Batista has only been back with the company for a couple of months, but has instantly become a guy in whom many people lack an interest. For somebody who is supposed to be a top star, that is a frightening scenario.

In some ways, you almost have to feel for Randy Orton. After being the dominant heel in a potential WrestleMania rivalry, he now finds himself marooned in a peculiar one—following Batista's heel turn. The match is in desperate need of a third party to ramp up the intrigue. Step forward, Daniel Bryan.

Yes, there is a potential match with Triple H on the horizon—or so we think. But if the company continue to push Triple H's resistance to lace up his boots one more time, there is great potential for both men to drag themselves into the Batista vs. Randy Orton picture.

Bryan doesn't have to win the title. You would imagine the plan for Batista to lift the belt is still very much in the cards, regardless of Bryan's inclusion. However, his momentum and popularity have made him an ideal candidate to force his way into the main event.

That is an argument that is perhaps made even stronger given Daniel Bryan's recent record at WrestleMania. Last year, he appeared early on in the card as part of a tag team with Kane. And we don't need to be reminded of what happened in 2012 when, in the first match of the evening, Bryan was beaten in 18 seconds flat.

The way Daniel Bryan is perceived by wrestling fans all across the world would guarantee this becoming a hugely anticipated main event. Granted, it wouldn't be on the level of some of the biggest matches the company have ever put on—but it would certainly suffice for WrestleMania XXX.

If the plans change going forward toward WrestleMania XXX—and Bryan vs. Triple H is somehow nixed—the alternative for Bryan is abundantly clear. Not only would it enable him to get his true spot on the card at Mania—but it would just about save a main event that is in grave danger of falling flat on its face.
