This week WWE took a huge step in building momentum towards Wrestle Mania. Multiple storyline were started or taken forward in a big way. Lets review.
Bautista vs Triple H
This one was clear as day. Bautista clearly asked Triple H whether he has his attention which was taken forward from the tense moment between them at SmackDown 1000 episode. Triple H has recovered from his injury way before expectation and the plan for Wrestle Mania is kick-started. Bautista needs a final match with WWE before going into retirement with wrestling and will be juggling the shoot for his next movie and sporadic WWE appearances on Road to Wrestle Mania.

After their match became an instant hit amongst the fans, WWE has tried to stretch for as long as possible. What started with a tag team face-off, was later taken forward with a singles match and then Two out of Three falls match which was ruined by Samoa Joe’s attack. Since then the storyline was taken forward with some random attacks and interferences like one this week, with the aim for a possible final showdown at Wrestle Mania.
Daniel Bryan (c) vs Kofi Kingston
WWE has acknowledged the Kofimania after all and resultingly, the Bryan-Owens match is shift to Fastlane from Wrestle Mania and Kofi will get the shot at the title for Wrestle Mania.
