November is drawing to a close, and in the WWE year, that can only mean one thing- Triple H has come out of hibernation, blown the cobwebs off his sledgehammer and is about to insert himself into a top-level feud for Wrestlemania. Over the last few years it has been pretty obvious who Triple H’s opponent is going to be, especially in the case of Seth Rollins last year, and Sting two years prior to that. This year, however, things are looking a little different.
At the end of the Survivor Series main event, Triple H went crazy and made the whole thing about himself- attacking both Shane McMahon and Kurt Angle, and then getting beat up by Braun Strowman. While the ending was supposed to have made Braun look strong, Hunter isn’t fooling anybody and the internet reacted with its usual response to Triple H doing such things. The match did create a lot of speculation surrounding Triple H’s Mania opponent, though, and fans have since been discussing it ever since the show closed. While it seems likely it will be one of the men involved in the finish at Survivor Series, just which one it will be remains uncertain, and who knows, it could be someone different entirely. Let’s take a look at five potential Wrestlemania opponents for Triple H.
At the time of writing, Braun Strowman is definitely the front-runner to face Triple H at Wrestlemania. The two men had a square off at the end of Survivor Series and Braun followed that up by confronting The King of Kings on Raw the night after.
Triple H cowered away from Braun in their in-ring segment, something we have rarely seen The Game do in recent years, and there is every chance that sooner or later he will find some underhanded way to retaliate against the big man. WWE won’t be teasing a feud between the two for nothing either, and Triple H, for all his faults, has a habit of putting over younger stars on the grand-daddy of them all, Wrestlemania.
A match between Braun and Triple H, and a victory for the former Wyatt Family member would work wonders for his career, and with Brock Lesnar likely leaving the company after Wrestlemania, this would position Braun as the next unstoppable force in the WWE.
