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.
Hogan was already the hottest act in the country before McMahon got his hands on him, which is actually why McMahon was so anxious to get him. In the AWA people were going nuts for Hulk, and were ready for him to be top guy.
