“The truth is, it doesn’t matter what led us to this moment, Daniel. It just matters that now we are in this moment. And somehow, it feels like it was all supposed to happen this way. Like we were supposed to be in the ring together.” – Triple H
Logically, it all makes sense. From screwing Daniel Bryan out of the WWE championship at SummerSlam, stripping the title after Night of Champions, to all the obstacles since then; this moment was meant to happen.
Yet, as logical as Daniel Bryan versus Triple H at WrestleMania has become, it’s so strange to reconsider that this moment was not supposed to happen. “Anybody else would have folded a long time ago and took their ball and gone home. Not you,” Triple H’s potshot towards his original ‘Mania opponent CM Punk. Yes, a reboot of the Punk-Hunter rivalry of 2012 was supposed to take place at WrestleMania.
Before his departure, CM Punk was outspoken against The Authority and their blatant abuse of power. If anyone said something that was unfavorable to either Hunter or Stephanie McMahon, they would unexpectedly receive a beat down from The Shield. Then after Punk miraculously defeated all three members of The Shield in a handicap match at Survivor Series, his attention shifted over to WWE’s newest Director of Operations, Kane. This new focus cost Punk the Royal Rumble as he was the fourth-to-last contestant in the match lasting over 49 minutes.
Can anyone blame Punk for doing what he did? We were all upset over the direction the company was going through. Batista vs Randy Orton at WrestleMania? CM Punk vs Triple H or Kane? Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus? WrestleMania XXX was shaping up to be a crap-tastic event. And while internally there are some harsh resentment towards CM Punk for walking out of the WWE in its biggest season of the year, he’s the reason that the YES Movement got the push it so richly deserved. Because without CM Punk, the Chicago fans would never have tried to hijack RAW, leading Daniel Bryan to occupy RAW in Memphis, resulting in Bryan getting his match with Triple H and his agreement to be added to the WWE championship match if he is successful.
So while Triple H may say that it doesn’t matter how they got to this moment, it does matter because moments in time occur because of the actions of others. Don’t get where I’m going with this? Imagine if The Curtain Call never occurred at Madison Squared Garden? Triple H would have won King of the Ring that year as planned, instead of Steve Austin and Austin 3:16 would never have been born. There you have it. The journey in time to the present moment does matter, but most importantly it’s what they do now that Daniel Bryan is in the moment.
We heard it from Triple H, regardless of the outcome from his match, the WWE World Heavyweight championship match will be contested under Triple Threat Rules: Randy Orton vs Batista vs Winner between Daniel Bryan and Triple H. Who knows, maybe the addition of Daniel Bryan won’t change the possibility of “The Animal” Dave Batista walking out of New Orleans with the titles, but what if the YES Movement makes it happen?
Answer the Question: Will Triple H end the YES Movement, or will Daniel Bryan defeat Triple H?
