The chances of Roman Reigns winning the triple threat match at Fast Lane are so great, Vegas shouldn't even lay odds for it. It's Reigns vs. Triple H at WrestleMania 32 in AT&T Stadium, and there's virtually no chance that WWE gives us anything different. Commence two months of, "Geez, how predictable," and, "I'll bet Daniel Bryan gets cleared on Monday, April 4." Looking back at three decades of WrestleMania history, there have been far greater WWE Championship storyline builds than, "Vince's son-in-law tries to shoot Vince's pet project into the stratosphere before a potentially record-setting crowd." Of course, such transparent vanity is still better than Sgt. Slaughter pledging allegiance to Saddam Hussein, providing a catalyst for Hulk Hogan to defend Old Glory in a championship showdown that fell embarrassingly short of selling out the Los Angeles Coliseum. Actually, that may be hard to say; people actually did boo the heel and cheer the face when the Gulf War was invoked. Glancing farther up the chart, there are way better choices for WWE Championship stories to discuss, encompassing four different decades in WrestleMania's storied annals. Let's take a look back at the times in which WWE got the "Road to WrestleMania" right, and in droves.
