This match would be a rematch from the main event of WrestleMania X-8 where the Undisputed WWE champion Chris Jericho battled the game Triple H. The feud between Chris Jericho and Triple H longed till the Judgment Day pay per view event of that year. After that, Chris Jericho and Triple H never got involved into a direct feud. However, they faced each other one on one in 2008 in an episode of Monday night Raw.
Most of the rumors are suggesting that Triple H would face Roman Reigns at the grandest stage of them all. Hell, the internal news says something else, something completely different. Who would Roman Reigns face at WrestleMania 31, well, there is no news on this matter yet.
So how this storyline would be created? Let us look at the nearby possibilities for the building of this feud; as we all know, Triple H indirectly addressed Chris Jericho as a B+ player during the feud between Triple H and Daniel Bryan, Jericho was out of action due to his Fozzy tour. Jericho replied on twitter; “Thing is @tripleh despite ur major push,u never were either. Good luck in ur future endeavors”. Later, he deleted the tweet.
Chris Jericho made an indirect apology tweet later. But the tweet that Jericho made earlier clearly indicated the anger that grew in Jericho’s head when Triple H denied to accept Chris Jericho as the ‘Guy’ of WWE.
A lot of talking points were created after this small cold war between two of the biggest names in WWE history. But later, all these incidents calmed down as everyone moved on.
But this tweet of Chris Jericho can definitely be used to build up a feud between Triple H and Chris Jericho. And just imagine, Triple H vs. Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 31. A rematch from WrestleMania 18, after thirteen years, the two are head to head on the same event. Yes, this match would definitely be best for business.
So what was the actual point behind the planning of this feud? As we all know, the feud between Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels from 2003 is considered as the best feud of WrestleMania history. Is Triple H trying to take Shawn Michaels’ place? We all see how Triple H battled twice against Undertaker after Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker on WrestleMania 25 and WrestleMania 26 respectively was declared as the best matches of WrestleMania history. Critics raised questions when Triple H faced Undertaker at WrestleMania as he is ‘jealous’ on best friend and he wanted to take his spot. Could the same reason be applied here as well?
But what we are thinking might not be right. We can understand that Triple H vs. Chris Jericho would be a superb match to highlight the match card of WrestleMania 31. Maybe Triple H just thinking about what best for business is.
So which match do you think would be best for business at WrestleMania 31; Triple H vs. Chris Jericho or Triple H vs. Roman Reigns? Feel free to share your views.
