Why would they have a three-way rematch? I dunno, it just seems pointless. I'd say have it just be Benoit vs. Shawn Michaels, and HHH vs. Edge if he's ready by then. Benoit needs to get a win back from Michaels since he was beaten by him before Mania, and it would be a good way to legitimize Benoit's world title reign...that is if WWE plans on doing that instead of just giving Benoit a one month token run.

Hey I like that idea and never really considered it.

I think doing HHH v. Edge this soon would be a mistake, because hopefully the idea is that it will be there for HHH to have a fresh opponent later on this year, after he's back from his time off.
Doing Benoit-HHH solo or Benoit-Michaels solo obviously is more interesting, but if you do one, what does the left-out guy do this month? There is absolutely no heel that they can slot into a match against Michaels and no face (besides Edge) that can be put in against HHH and have it seem at all interesting.
I think maybe the idea is that if you do the three-way one more time, and this time in a ladder environment, and Benoit wins again, HHH can do an injury angle or something to take his leave, and then you've still got Benoit-Michaels set for June, and you aren't thrusting Edge right into the main event, where he's never been before, or relegating Benoit to a straight rematch with Michaels, or a program with Kane.
Then for the June show, you can do Benoit/Michaels and build up from under while HHH has the time off with Edge and Orton, who stand to gain a lot. After he's back, HHH can (probably will) regain the title from Benoit, Orton cycles to Benoit, and Edge cycles to HHH. On their bicycles, of course.
So it takes 5 years for WWE creative to learn if an idea is bad enough they can make a mockery of it? Seriously, I'm going to miss Boogeyman, if only for the whole George 'The Animal' Steele effect they were on the cusp of.
