With Daniel Bryan absent in order to sell his injury angle, it was up to Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton to hype the upcoming title match at WrestleMania XXX.
And personally, I think they did a pretty good job.
So much so that I find myself wondering if we might be being robbed of a potential classic Triple Threat match between the former Evolution allies.
Batista and Orton’s opening segment appeared to be going nowhere until Stephanie McMahon found herself dragged into the equation. Batista managed to insult both her and Orton and got a slap for his troubles, much to the amusement of the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
It may only have been a minor detail, but it’s little things like this that suggest that between the lot of them these guys could have put on a pretty entertaining program if they’d been given more time.
Triple H later came out and made another subtle dig at both Batista and Orton living off of their "past glories” and “untapped potential,” which only further convinced me that there’s a great story to be told behind this one.
All three men have crossed paths at some point in time—but never simultaneously.
I’m all for Daniel Bryan being added to the main event at WrestleMania XXX, but after what we saw on Monday Night Raw, don’t you think that Triple H vs. Batista vs. Randy Orton could have been one of the greatest WrestleMania feuds of all time if given a chance?
