Triple H Retire? No way...

The hype and speculation since Triple H's loss to Brock Lesnar at Summer Slam all points to retirement. The WWE superstar's Twitter feeds, the appearance by a very aged Shawn Micheals on Raw last week, the ringside comments by Micheal Cole and Jerry Lawler all try to hold the WWE fan's hand and pull them to the conclusion that The Game will finally call it quits and retire. Why not? He is a part-timer now, and holds a big corporate position. His giant loss at the hands of The Beast pretty much sealed his exit. I thought the End of An Era match between HHH and The Undertaker would have been a better way to exit. Which is exactly why The Game is still in it.
The retirement nonsense is going to play out in a storyline, most likely with the Game being angry at "his best friend" for even mentioning such a thing. Last year, I would have went for a Shawn Micheals/ HHH match. Now, after seeing an out of shape Micheals limping to the ring at every appearance, I don't think that would be such a good idea. Shawn, please stay out of the ring and let the fans remember your greatness. If Shawn were to continue with brief backstage or ringside appearances, I would be more than happy. Micheals is hysterical, and his presence is always appreciated. With that said, I in no way shape or form want HHH and Shawn Micheals to get in the ring together to prove who really is the best of the two. It makes no sense, since Lesnar could beat them both. And the way Micheals cowered from Brock at the recent Raw appearances, maybe Lesnar could take them on both at once.
So, what does the future hold for the Game? I see him calling out Lesnar eventually, all leading up to a rematch at Wrestlemania. Lesnar's contract is up, which opens the door for Triple H to prevail and regain his position  in the WWE as The King of Kings, and then retire. He must beat The Beast, simple as that.
Now, if that were true, then The Undertaker versus Brock Lesnar would not happen at Wrestlemania. Which is okay with me. So who will The Undertaker face at Wrestlemania? John Cena would be a good match, but with him all tied up with CM Punk, I'm not sure that will happen. The Rock? Nah, he's after the title. what other name is big enough to try to break the streak? None... So, I am reneging and saying Punk will face The Rock for the championship, leaving John Cena to face The Phenom.
