Over at WWE.com, a list of eight "dream matches" for WrestleMania 30 was put together that includes some feasible showdowns, like Roman Reigns vs. Big E. Langston for the Intercontinental title,and some that will never happen but would have been great to see, like Dean Ambrose vs. Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
But it's the last suggestion that piqued my interest:

Yes, Randy Orton defending his WWE world heavyweight championship title against both Daniel Bryan and Triple H. Here's a bit of the reasoning provided:
Not bad, right? Well, here's the thing: Orton hasn't been able to beat Bryan on his own for a while. Anybody who talks about what's "best for business" has to know a thing or two about an insurance policy. Enter a walking, talking, sledgehammer-swinging contingency plan in the form of Triple H. The Game's presence ensures The Authority holds the 2-on-1 edge and, if Orton should fail against the "Yes!" Man, Triple H at least has the opportunity to pick up the pieces and keep the supreme prize in his own camp.
To my eyes, this might actually be the best option available for WWE in reality. To hell with the "dream" component, this match should be booked immediately. It would serve the continuing story that The Authority doesn't trust Orton and he's fallen far out of its favor while "The Game" returns to the ring to become the "Face of WWE" himself all while stopping Bryan from winning the title once and for all.
Naturally, Bryan would win, vanquishing his top two foes in one fell swoop, and the WrestleMania 30 broadcast would go off the air with 70,000 fans in New Orleans at the Superdome chanting "YES" along with the new champion.
Sadly, Batista has won the Royal Rumble and guaranteed himself a spot in the headlining match challenging for the title Orton is currently holding. He may have also been promised a shot at the belt upon signing his two-year contract to return to the company.
Plans not only can change, they often do but don't expect this "dream" match to actually happen, even if it's the right call.
