8: Brock Lesnar vs Triple H

Wrestlemania 29

This is the first of the rematches that will certainly be adorning the top of the card, ¬†and will probably end up being the most brutal. There’s a lot of bad blood between these two, and quite a bit at stake.

Brock Lesnar returned to the company last year and it wasn’t long before he found himself at odds with The Game. The two feuded up until SummerSlam, where Lesnar forced Triple H to tap out to the Kimura Lock. After the match, it looked like Triple H’s career would be over, but the Game answered the call to arms when Brock attacked Vince McMahon.

Heyman being the Mad Scientist, he manipulated the terms of the bout to suit Brock by having Triple H sign the contract before knowing the match’s stipulations. After taking a beating from The Game, Heyman revealed the bout would be No Holds Barred and Triple H’s career would be on the line.

We’re sure to get one hell of a slobber-knocker with this one. Lesnar may not be as good as he was in his first run with WWE, but he’s still a beast and he looks like some kind of monster in the ring. Triple H is the seasoned warrior who’s looking for vengeance against the monster that threatens to end his storied career. We’ll be sure to see Triple H’s sledgehammer come into play, as well as Brock’s deadly Kimura Lock, which has “broken” Triple H’s arm twice already.

At the go-home Raw, Shawn Michaels announced that he would be in Triple H’s corner. I think this will be the difference maker. Since the bout is No Holds Barred, that means that there are no disqualifications. Brock could set up Triple H for the F-5, only to to get some Sweet Chin Music from Mr. Wrestlemania at the last second. Triple H can add a quick Pedigree or two to score the pinfall. Everybody wins with this scenario. HBK gets some payback for Lesnar attacking him last year, Brock looks great by virtue of the fact that it took two legendary superstars to put him down, and Triple H keeps his career until next year at WrestleMania XXX.

Winner: Triple H
