Wrestlemania 30 will take place live on Sunday, April 6th. The scheduled main event for the night is a triple threat bout. Champion Randy Orton defends his WWE Championship against Batista and either Triple H or Daniel Bryan. If the WWE Universe has their way, and it’s likely they will, Daniel Bryan will depart Wrestlemania 30 as WWE Champion.
Countless wrestling fans assume the Daniel Bryan versus Triple H storyline is an angle designed to troll the broadening internet wrestling community. Daniel Bryan has long been the poster boy for the once hidden culture. In the last several months, Bryan has been juggled between main event virtuoso and mid card fodder. He sprouted feverishly with a feud against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, then was relegated to a conflict with the Wyatts, only to come back to the main event scene after the WWE Royal Rumble. The internet wrestling community points to these facts as confirmation that they are being toyed with.
However, the complete opposite is true. In an age where storylines and angles are birthed and expired within a few weeks, Bryan’s storyline follows a more classic approach. A perfect application for such a milestone Wrestlemania. It’s referred to by some as the slow burn. They’ve done this throughout the course of Wrestlemania history. One only has to look back to The Rock and John Cena, whose main event match burned for a year. The time allows fans to anticipate more. It gets their emotions involved. And right now, fans are riled up and devoted to Daniel Bryan and his run to the top.
If you look at its illustrious history, Wrestlemania was built on the baby face triumphing at the end. Most Wrestlemanias are capped off by the good guy standing tall. Usually with the WWE Heavyweight Championship. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Steve Austin. The list is endless. The good guys almost always win. Why would this year be any different, especially considering how red hot Daniel Bryan is at the moment.
Additionally, following the rule that the good guy always goes over in the end, Daniel Bryan is the clear baby face of the four potential winners.Triple H has been playing the evil dictator of the WWE, so there is no way evil will triumph on the biggest stage of them all. Batista’s return has been mocked and universally recognized as a complete disaster. And lastly, Randy Orton has flipped flopped more than a fish out of water. His fan base is so scattered because he has very little direction. The only man with a large positive cheering fan base is Daniel Bryan.
Wrestlemania 30 may be boasting one of the most undesirable cards in recent years, but a Daniel Bryan win will erase most of the stink that the undercard will feature. Outside the controversial John Cena, he is the biggest baby face that the WWE has at the moment. His road has been a long one, and on April 6th, he’ll finally get the gold. Guaranteed.
