The "Reality Era" is real.
The scheduled WrestleMania XXX bout between Triple H and Daniel Bryan will insert the winner into the main event to take on Randy Orton and Batista in a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
So yes, Triple H may headline WrestleMania XXX.
Not Daniel Bryan. Not CM Punk. But Triple H, the guy internet-smart fans heave most of the blame at for the direction the creative push has taken since the fateful Royal Rumble and Punk's departure. The WWE creative parody account sums up what could potentially happen:
The match was created on the March 10 edition of RAW after Bryan ran his "Occupy Raw" campaign, with the stipulation being that, should Bryan win, he would be inserted into the main event of WrestleMania.
But that was too obvious. Fan backlash helped alter creative's plans, but many surely shrugged the latest development off—Bryan was going to win and headline WrestleMania—end of story. It was a nice way for WWE to give the fans what they want while coaxing cash out of wallets for the WWE Network.
Now? Perhaps a shred of doubt, even a sliver, has to enter the minds of fans as to the direction this is headed. Triple H, often criticized in all circles of the internet as the man who puts talent down to feed his own agenda, is in the perfect position to fight back against the unruly fans who don't simply follow what the product feeds them.
In other words, much like how Paul Heyman expertly played the Chicago crowd a few weeks back to kick off RAW, WWE creative is playing the current landscape that meshes real and fake together to keep the predictable out of its biggest event of the year.
That's what is best for business.
