The Triple Threat at WWE WrestleMania 30 Will Turn Into a Fatal 4-Way

There is no doubt in my mind that the WrestleMania XXX main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will move from a Triple Threat to a Fatal 4-Way. Recent events in The Authority storyline mandate that will happen.

It’s been building for weeks now. Not only has Triple H, the storyline COO of WWE, had heat with top good-guy Daniel Bryan, but he also has had heat with current champ Randy Orton and Batista, the number-one contender. All that heat has to explode somewhere, and it will happen in the top match at the top pay-per-view event in WWE.

It’s just the latest in WWE’s rekindling of the old “top guy wants the spotlight” plot. Remember in years past how evil chairman Vince McMahon would insert himself into the top stories and how many of those stories would climax with him squaring off in the ring against whomever?

This time around, exit McMahon and enter Triple H. He is climbing into the ring with Bryan to put an end to the mega-popular “Yes” movement spearheaded by Bryan. And there is an extra caveat to this match – the winner joins Batista and Orton in the main event.

We all know that Bryan is going to win that match and move into the main event. Even WWE does not want its crown-jewel telecast to be headlined by three heels.

But do not be surprised if power-drunk, egomaniacal Triple H waves off the loss and executes a little “executive privilege,” deciding to insert himself into the main-even scene. It’s a move straight out of Vince McMahon’s playbook.

Usually, WrestleMania is the end of a feud. But every once in a while, a feud will continue in an effort to build some steam toward SummerSlam, the number-two PPV in the company.

I’m not saying this will happen, but I have a gut feeling that somehow, someway, Triple H will walk out of New Orleans with the title. In the PPVs between WrestleMania and SummerSlam, Triple H will dispose of the other two WM challengers, Orton and Batista, to set up the showdown with Bryan at SummerSlam.

Since it was SummerSlam 2013 that launched The Authority angle and Bryan’s storyline of corporate disrespect, it would only seem right that the plot come full circle at SummerSlam 2014 and end with Bryan capturing the top prize.

I think even that would be something to which even Vince McMahon himself would be saying, “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
