Views From The Turnbuckle: Daniel Bryan And The Disappointment That Is His Match With Triple H

Now, the argument could be made that WWE knows exactly what they have in Daniel Bryan and they are doing all they can to capitalize on his popularity. Why, he is even getting a match against the boss! The problem with that thinking is that it plays into the idea that Triple H has an enormous ego and an incredibly out-of-proportion evaluation of his own self-worth. Does Triple H really think a match against him is on the same level as a match for the world title? Either WWE thinks that, or they just don't understand what they have in Daniel Bryan and don't want to give him the grandest stage at Wrestlemania. It is either one of those two possibilities, and both of them are wrong.

To make matters worse, there are some rumors floating around that Triple H may actually go over Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania. Now, a few months ago, when those rumors were first reported, I dismissed them as pure nonsense. Triple H would never bury Bryan at Wrestlemania, that is just a rumor created by people on the internet who want HHH to be this insane egomaniac who buries everybody. But, as time has gone on, I have learned to accept that HHH going over Bryan at Wrestlemania is a realistic possibility. Noted Triple H friend Batista comes back and gets a completely undeserved push. The New Age Outlaws come back from the dead and win the tag titles from the most popular tag team in the company (although I think they were perfect fine during their title reign). Stuff is happening to indicate that Triple H will put his friends (and presumably, himself) over more deserving talent.

Daniel Bryan, over the last six months, as had one of the most exciting, yet disappointing runs in wrestling. Bryan has achieved fabulous levels of popularity and has clearly declared himself as the top babyface in WWE. However, he also been consistently given the short end of the stick when it came to booking, and he has been put in losing situations as a wrestler. WWE is walking a fine line with Bryan, had his popularity could begin to wane if they don't capitalize on it soon, and that wrestling Triple H at Wrestlemania is not going to get the job done.
