Home » WWE News » Possible WrestleMania XXX Match for Triple H, Update on WWE’s Unified Champion, More

- WWE will tape the January 3rd SmackDown episode on Sunday, December 29th from Washington, DC. Advertised for those tapings are The Shield, Triple H, Daniel Bryan and Mark Henry. The same day, WWE will run a RAW live event in Hershey, PA with John Cena, Randy Orton, Big Show, Kane, Sin Cara, Rey Mysterio, Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, Alberto Del Rio and Roman Reigns, who will likely be pulling double duty that day.

– There’s a feeling that the winner of John Cena vs. Randy Orton at TLC won’t be called the Unified Champion, as voted by WWE App users on Monday. They will likely go with Undisputed WWE Champion.

– As noted, there has been a lot of changes to WrestleMania XXX plans within the last week. Word now is that they are building to a Triple H vs. CM Punk match either leading up to WrestleMania or at the big event itself.

    I love how some people on here say how HHH vs Punk would be bad then they come up with a worst idea than that one. Even though I wouldn’t mind see HHH vs Punk again will have to wait and see on that one. But you then have people come up with HHH vs Vince Mac and it like really you think people going to pay to see that instead of HHH vs Punk. It like if you going to go up with an idea at least make it more watchable I wouldn’t mind a HHH vs Bryan match at least that is something worth watching. We could still see and I been saying this for many mouths HHH vs Cena yeah it been done but who better to stand up to HHH than WWE biggest star John Cena. It wouldn’t be for the WWE title but I believe it would be a great match to watch. I am just saying come up with a good idea if you think Punk vs HHH is bad that find but try to think things though before just putting a match out there that really nobody is going to watch.

    And jerry Lawlers first heart attack happened in the ring he was wrestling and had to be carted off you dnt remember that then he was ok the next week and had another one announcing

  • J-SMOOTH

    I’m saying Vince is old too old to be wrestling he could be involved in the angle but he isn’t going get in the ring and wrestle HHH at almost 70 years old Vince had to be carried through all his matches whenever he wrestled because if his lack of athleticism and at 68 I’m sure it’s gotten worse an aging HHH trying not to hurt an even more brittle aged bodied Vince McMahon isn’t good for anything and Vince could end up seriously hurt. Hence it probably be Vince choosing someone to wrestle for him. And I’d rather cm punk than Daniel Bryan. Though @The Killswitch has a point. But Daniel bryans issue is more with hbk or the shield rather it’s hasn’t been said or proven that HHH oredered the attacks storyline wise despite speculation the only ones who have actually screwed Daniel Bryan are the shield and hbk HHH didn’t physically do anything to Daniel Bryan

  • J-SMOOTH

    No Shane left the wrestling business period he didn’tvwant to be part of the family business that’s not what he wanted to do he started his own media business that’s why he left they deal in internet and television marketing and exposure. He basically sold his shares to his father. Of course he can come back when he wants it’s his families company. And they haven’t talked to Shane about anything when Shane left he stated he was done and u haven’t seen nor heard anything about him and wrestling since only what he and his media company ate doing.

  • The Killswitch

    Let’s just agree to disagree. As stated before, Bryan vs HHH would make a lot more sense, since they have unfinished business with each other.

  • D2K

    Oh there was an epic fail at your attempt at levity. You didn’t have a point, you had an opinion which is fine. The line….

    “Because it’s 1999 and the pro wrestling has never been hotter?”

    Was not necessary to prove it or state it.

  • D2K

    Well good for you. I would not want to see Punk/HHH again because their matches were less entertaining than HHH/Vince was and as I stated before the feud was resolved. So what difference does it make? I would prefer not to see any of the McMahons involved in any match at all, but HHH/Vince makes far more sense storyline wise than HHH/Punk. That is a fact.

  • D2K

    What does Jerry Lawler’s heart attach have to do with this? He was broadcasting when that happened. I guess he shouldn’t do that either eh? Just go sit in a rocking chair until he dies.

    Besides, they have already talked with Shane about being involved at WM. Shane recently stepped down from being CEO and has less responsibilities. He can do pretty much whatever he wants. But I guess according you unless yo have share holdings and and current WWE contract you cannot appear at a WWE event right?

  • J-SMOOTH

    Yeah 35% is your good portion. I’m sorry no one wants to see a rematch from 14 years ago when one of the participants is beyond the age of should be wrestling. Did jerry Lawlers heart attack not teach you anything there a time to let it go and Shane is no longer part of wwe. He cut all ties with the company even his share holdings in ownership

  • J-SMOOTH

    Punk vs HHH would be a good match much better than HHH vs Vince. I’d pay to see punk be the stonecold to hhhs Vince.

  • J-SMOOTH

    how did using the cruserweight title show wcw wwe won cruserweight title was wcw and it wasn’t unified with light heavyweight the cruserweight title took it’s place. And they stopped using European title in place of us title. There was no unification. That has only been done once with the undisputed championship.

    my opinion and i was bored.. tell me what you think..

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    nope, look back at Survivor series 2001 during the (crappy) invasion angle: Edge unified the U.S belt (until it came back) and all the rest of them got unified as in 2001 as WWE’s way of showing WCW they’d “won” so every belt got unified. Then they unified the tag belts at WM 25, and the Womens Title with the crappy Divas belt

    its been done to death

    and thats not necessarily true, 220 is the weight limit so….

  • Andy

    Well I don’t want to see a 68 year old Vince McMahon fight a 44 year old triple h that’s for sure. That doesn’t sound entertaining whatsoever. I don’t want to see punk fight triple h. I personally couldn’t care much less about the whole idea of this storyline gone awry. I mainly posted because your match was directly out of the attitude era and that made me laugh. So there wasn’t really much of a point behind my “failed attempt at levity”. Sorry.

  • Sam

    It SHOULD be the undisputed wwe championship…I mean ‘unified’ just sounds stupid

  • J-SMOOTH

    Ur wrong half of those titles u named they just stopped using there was no unification. And that tag title unification was stupid what was the pint of making wcw tag belts and they didnt have tag teams they just did that to get rid of all the belts they had. The US title dropped not unified cruiserweight title unified with a light heavyweight what were u watching backyard wrestling light heavyweight title dropped cruiserweight title dropped wwe had like 4 cruiserweights. And cruserweights are basically 195 pounds and under

  • J-SMOOTH

    Wth dude that is definitely sumn u dreamed of

  • J-SMOOTH

    Cuz idiots voted for unified champion just say that in a phrase it sounds dumb unified champion of what? And sooner rather than later it’ll be right back to wwe champion which it should just stay that way in the first place

  • Purple0ranges

    Too bad it’s not Punk vs Stone Cold

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    The Tag belts, the U.S & Intercontinental (before the Us belt came back), the light heavyweight & cruiserweight, womens title etc….

    its been done, plus were see in Cena/Orton again for the billionth time

  • D2K

    Unfortunately…..

    So what’s is your point behind your failed attempt at levity? Would rather see a rematch of a match you just saw 2 years ago or one you saw 14 years ago? And just exactly how many people who watch WWE nowadays even remember that? A good portion of fans weren’t even born yet or still in diapers.

  • D2K

    I do believe Daniel Bryan manages to squeeze in a headlock or two in between the “YES” and “NO” chants…..

    *rollseyes*

    I mean really, c’mon dude……

  • D2K

    We’ve only see it once for the WWE title and that was with Jericho VS. Austin/Rock.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    i left out the unification thing because (to me) its pretty bland, how many times have we seen that done?

    and id push barrett because he NEEDS the push again, and believe it or not more people would care about Barrett/Cena than Cena/Orton

  • Keith Learmonth

    I apologise, then. In the past, I’ve seen you posting as his biggest defender, though, that’s all. I guess something changed.

  • xXx

    so…. what’s the use of “VOTING” if they’re not gonna go with what the people voted for?

  • Shawn OB

    How ’bout the WWE CHAMPIONSHIP? You know they’re gonna drop the term Undisputed, ya know?

  • max1982

    if I had my way I’d like to see Teddy Dibiase Jr come back and face undertaker at Mania will Million Dollar Man in his son’s corner with the storyline of “I brought him in, I know how to beat him” during the match have run-ins from ex-taker mania opponents against taker, But of course we don’t want taker to lose so he wins.
    Rey vs Cara
    Los Matadores vs The Usos vs PTP vs The Rhodes
    The Wyatts vs The Shield vs 3MB
    Brock vs Ryback
    Punk vs RVD
    8 men IC ladder match: Christan vs Kofi vs Fandago vs Kane vs The Miz vs Santino vs Curtis vs Xavier Woods
    WWE title match: Cena vs ADR vs Randy Orton
    Dolph Ziggler vs Big Show
    Swagger vs Cesaro

  • JohnCena33

    Who says I dont see Cena as stale, he is stale.

  • Andy

    The attitude era.
    HHH vs Vince McMahon with Shane involved happened at Armageddon in 1999, in the attitude era. Which is when I would want to see that match. See what I did there?

  • Keith Learmonth

    But you’re a Cena fan…? He’s been doing the same thing for about 8 years now. How do you not see his character as stale?

  • JohnCena33

    That would be a horrible match. All Bryan does is YES or NO, his character is getting stale.

  • D2K

    I can’t see a reason fans would actually care about a Cena/Barrett match at Wrestlemania. Back during the Nexus days that would have been good, but not now. Besides that the title unification leaves a gaping hole in your card.

  • D2K

    Huh?

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    dear god is it really that hard to book a decent card that the fans ACTUALLY want?

    Punk vs Bryan

    Undertaker vs Lesnar

    Open invitational for the Intercontinental championship (seeing as its the 30th anniversary of WM they could do something where they bring in past champions and mix them with todays generation)

    Wade Barrett vs Cena (WHC)

    Natalya vs Aj womens Title

    Ziggler vs Orton (WWE title)

    piece of cake

  • Daniel Schein

    I have no issue w/ Punk vs Triple H but it has been done….Bryan/Triple H would make more sense in elevating Bryan since Triple H has made such a big point of saying he doesn’t have the it factor…..unless of course HBK is returning to take on Bryan, but my hunch is that’s not happening

  • Andy

    Because it’s 1999 and the pro wrestling has never been hotter?

  • D2K

    That would be a great match.

  • Yes!3X

    Agreed. HHH vs. Bryan would make alot more sense.

  • D2K

    We’ve already seen that and any heat at this point would be contrived and shallow. That feud got settled. It’s over.

  • JohnCena33

    I do. It would be a great match with awesome promos.

  • D2K

    I’d rather see Triple H VS. Vince with a run-in from Shane.

  • ddfindl

    HHH vs. Punk? Wtf, no body wants to see that.
