Triple H Wins WWE Championship Last Night at Royal Rumble [VIDEO]
Triple H has become the NEW WWE World Heavyweight Champion after entering last night's Royal Rumble main event as the #30 entrant.
He eliminate the defending champion Roman Reigns in the match, which came down to Triple H and WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose.
Triple H will be main eventing WrestleMania 32 as a 14-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
The story with Triple H and Roman Reigns really isn't much different than the Daniel Bryan story in terms of the way it's been booked. Bryan won the title, got screwed over by Money in the Bank guy - it was just a few months before Reigns did. Other things happened to make things difficult. Then Triple H realizes "okay I have to put this guy over" because he's pushed so much as a heel so he did that for Bryan at WM30 and he'll do it for Reigns at WM32 this time with the title.
Bryan beating Orton/Batista in same night added to it, but is essentially the same idea.
The difference is that Bryan was the most universally loved babyface in a very long time while Reigns is booed by a portion of the fans. The problem also is that they just did the same f'n thing two years ago with a better wrestler. That's why I'm not going to sit here and say this is great. It's repetitive. My opinion.
