The way a big thing was made about the contract signing between Triple H & Chris Benoit for Raw tonight it seems to me that HBK may get himslef involved, like Austin has suggested to him, give Benoit Sweet Chin Music and sign the contract. This sets up a triple-threat for the World Title, as Benoit is guarenteed a shot for winning the rumble. As Main Events go I could think of worse! Who would walk out of Wrestlemania as the champ then?

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
That's the current rumor - HHH/HBK/Benoit match, with a possibility of it being a ladder match.


I'd rather it be just HHH/Benoit, as adding HBK takes away from Benoit winning the Rumble to earn a shot for the title (albeit the wrong title). Of course, adding HBK means HHH doesn't have to take the loss, hmmm........

Benoit needs to beat HHH, one on one, in the middle of the ring for this match to be effective. Introducing a third dynamic takes away from the direct conflict and cheapens any sense of real victory or accomplishment for the winner.

Supposedly, the reasoning for this match has to do with... house show business(!??!) This way, they can run more house show main events. You know, because HHH vs HBK or Benoit vs HBK won't look as good on paper if HBK isn't in the WM main event. It's not like HHH and HBK have an already built issue to promote those matches with.

Because we all know how important those house shows are. It's worth compromising the biggest event, and possibly the most important match of the year, so that those non-televised events can draw 4,000 fans a night.

Vince McMahon has some really bad ideas and messed up priorities.

Me, I don't know why you'd use a spoiler tag with just half of this, since either it's ALL a spoiler or NONE of it is a spoiler.

I still hold out hope they keep it one on one, unless it turns out that whatever DOES happen at Mania sets up a one on one at Backlash (which admittedly has a logic to it).

Originally, I did have it all in a Spoiler. I changed it to just have the rumor as a spoiler, since the rest is just in reply to the original post, which seems to be asking for feelings regarding a possible triple threat match.

I agree, UNLESS they have Benoit win in a 3 way match at WrestleMania and then beat HHH 1 on 1 at Backlash (which I think is going to be in Benoit's hometown of Edmonton) to successfully defend his Title.

I still have no reason to believe that HHH will do the job to Benoit at WrestleMania. As the rules of triple threats go, Benoit should be able to win the title if HBK gets involved. A pin over HBK to win the title at WM would be good enough for me because I believe the only person to beat Shawn since he's come back is HHH

Now that would definately bring a match between HHH and Benoit the next month and as for who would win that, I'm still not sure. While I think HHH has the clout to not be pinned at WM, I see no way why he wouldn't put Benoit over in his hometown. Of course the way wwe treats guys when they work in their hometown is another thread all of its own that's been done before...



"The whole Dean anger thing is a bum rap. This guy has his emotions under control," Jon Stewart said as a clip of Dean shouting state names rolled. At the end of the list, Stewart added, "Dean will be driving to all those states - apparently in Truckasaurus, and he will do it on SUNDAY, SUNDAY SUNDAY!"

HBK should not get a world title shot at Wrestlemania. He was unable to decisively overcome HHH TWICE in the last couple of months. Benoit busted his ass and won the Royal Rumble and it will cheapen his struggle and momentum if a third guy will be put in the match. I mean what did HBK do to earn a title shot at Wrestlemania? Nothing.

I'd be more open to this scenario if they did something similar to Wrestlemania X with Owen and Bret, and Yokozuna/Luger.

This is a sweet idea. Have HHH/HBK in the first match, and then pit Benoit against Flair, Batista, or maybe even one of his old rivals from Smackdown (though not A-Train).

As long as we are throwing out ideas and possibilities, they could make the three-way elimination style and have Benoit pin both Triple H and HBK in the same match. Not saying that's very likely to happen, but that would be a way to put Benoit over big in a three-way dance.

Well storyline wise he didn't lose in 2 fights against the champ. It's only natural he'd want one more shot at it.

Not saying I agree with the booking, simply that given the Rumble match ended in a draw, having Michaels stay in the mix isn't without logic.

I definately think that HBK will get his shot at Mania. Do I agree with it, no. Benoit did beat 29 other me and wrestled his ass off for 61 minutes so putting HBK in overshadows it. HBK vs. Benoit vs HHH.

It's safe to say that Shawn Michaels is gonna get his title shot. He's definitely one of the best WWE champions of all-time.

WMXX is gonna be a biggie! I haven't ordered a PPV in a really long time.

I've noticed a LOT of people seem to think that adding Shawn Michaels to the main event is going to (supposedly) be done so that Benoit can get the title by pinning Michaels and therefore HHH keeps from jobbing.

What if the REAL reason they want to do it is so that Triple H can just beat Shawn (finally) and walk out of WM20 STILL as the champ without Benoit having to lose, with the McMahon family (and Triple H) really thinking that Benoit won't be hurt by that at all?

Why didn't Trips just beat Michaels in the Last Man Standing Match at the Rumble then, to save us a lot of time?

Then HBK doesn't get any that sweet WMXX main event money.

This reminds me of Chris Jericho two years ago. WWE didn't have confidence that Jericho could pull off the WM main, so they pad it up with Stephane and make it "TRIPLE H vs chris jericho with STEPHANIE MCMAHON"

Yep. Looks like WWE doesn't have confidence that Benoit can pull off a WM main, so pad it with Shawn Michales and make it "TRIPLE H vs chris benoit vs SHAWN MICHAELS"

Fuck them. HBK vs. HHH has been done about ten trillion times since Michaels has come back. Let it go, and let's see Benoit vs. Trips. It's not as if Benoit's not over, and he has been building up a ton of credibility recently.

You gotta admit the damn thing works very well for the fuckin' Clique, though. Benoit wins the Royal Rumble, and so therefore is in the main event of WrestleMania... then he jumps to RAW, so the World Heavyweight Title gets the main event. Throw Michaels in there, and just hope everyone forgets Benoit's even in the match.

Fuck that.

Did anyone seriously think Trips would drop the Deal and not include his little buddy HBK in the angle. Not likely. Trips does not like to lose, and what's more, he sure does not like to lose clean.

Remember, wasn't it HHH who called Bret a mark for getting steamed over the screw job in Montreal? Wasn't it HHH who called Bret a mark for thinking the strap actually meant something?

Well, that strap sure seems to mean a hell of a lot to HHH. The ultimate student of the game just might be the biggest mark in the game after all.

Just to make a counter point..
Benoit beating HHH and HBK (in a 3-way match) will make him look so fucking bad-ass..
Especially if it is heel vs heel vs face as it seems to be now.

I don't know how things are going to play out.
There are *still* many options. It might become a 3-way but who knows..
