Just My Opinion: WrestleMania XXX – Step-Ladder To Supremacy

5/22/2014 1:57:41 AM


Daniel Bryan and Triple H collided in a step-ladder match en route to a triple threat battle for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on WrestleMania 30 last April.

Wait a second; this was supposed to be just a plain non-title singles bout, right? And perhaps, this was a “last minute” adjustments made by the WWE writers and other creative storytellers, considering these options:
  • The match was supposedly addressed as CM Punk versus The Game. But that did not happen after Punk left the WWE just a night after the Royal Rumble; and  
  • Daniel Bryan changed the blueprint of the projected WrestleMania itself. Supposedly, it was only Randy Orton and Batista for the WWE World Heavyweight Title (yes, only a plain singles match).
If you want to figure out what I’m talking about, about three RAW episodes prior to WMXXX, Daniel waged like an activist, together with a bunch of supporters in the squared circle to challenge the WWE COO for that fight.

But maybe, that’s because he chased his dream of becoming a champion in the pro wrestling world once again. If you can recall it well, Bryan defeated Cena in SummerSlam last August, but the game’s referee whose goes by the moniker of The Cerebral Assassin, changed the entire pace as Orton cashed in Bryan’s title, which means that Bryan’s reign as the WWE Champion only lasted for moments.

Talk about this guy’s huge movement comes with only short-lived moments of stardom. The last time he went head-to-head on WrestleMania (which dates way back 2012 at that summer-themed SunLife Stadium in Miami Florida) was he lost both the match and the title to not just Sheamus, but to then-girlfriend AJ’s kiss. And another worst thing: it only took 18 seconds for the Celtic Warrior to defeat the flying goat with a brogue kick and a pinfall.

Fast-forward to April 6 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome, the match served as the preliminary for the main coverage (which lasted four hours, as usual). A lot of observers tagged them as the “match of the evening,” and if you asked me it’s not that hard to see why. Good portrayal by both fighters though some would argue that HHH did not liked the outcome and unleashed his frustration over the Yes Movement king once again in the aftermath. But that’s how the story goes, people.

Though to be honest with you, I’d put them at top with a tie to Brock Lesnar-Undertaker match.
