Bray Wyatt has suffered an underwhelming last six months or so in the WWE, he was on top of the world earlier this year alongside Luke Harper and Erick Rowan when they were taking down the likes of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and John Cena.
With so much promise and potential after some of the most entertaining feuds in the year, Wyatt turned his attention to the returning Chris Jericho and even though the duo put on a couple of decent matches, the feud failed to live up to the high expectations considering how talented the two men are.
After Jericho Bray Wyatt then took on The Lunatic Fringe in Dean Ambrose, in a feud which is now reaching its closing stages. Again, the feud failed to hit the high expectations the fans had set considering how entertaining and twisted both Wyatt and Ambrose are.
With WrestleMania XXXI quickly approaching, the WWE already have plans for who they want Wyatt to face in 2015 after he lost to John Cena earlier this year. The current plan is for Bray Wyatt to face The Undertaker if The Deadman is fit enough to compete this year.
But the WWE will also be looking ahead at other feuds that could be in store for Bray Wyatt if he is to have a better 2015, here are the three superstars I believe could engage in an entertaining feud with Bray Wyatt.

If current rumours are to be believed then Roman Reigns might not win the Royal Rumble and he won’t defeat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXXI for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Although it’s only a rumour, if Reigns doesn’t get Lesnar in the ring it’ll be because of his work on the microphone and working with someone who can build him up to look even stronger would be the way to go, and that man would be Bray Wyatt.
The WWE haven’t totally given up on Reigns; who knows he might actually capture the big one but if he doesn’t then Reigns can still look like a monster by engaging in a feud with Bray Wyatt. Wyatt has already targeted some of the biggest names in the WWE, from Kane, Daniel Bryan and CM Punk to John Cena, Chris Jericho and Dean Ambrose and if he does target Roman Reigns next then that’s not bad company for Reigns to be in. It will also make Wyatt look like a huge threat to a superstar like Reigns, the only ‘big-man’ Wyatt has targeted is Kane and Roman Reigns could be the next one he targets.
The fans adore Dolph Ziggler and they show it week in – week out as he receives possibly one of the loudest reactions on every show for the hard work he puts in. He’s already been targeted by Luke Harper and Ziggler got the better of him by recapturing the Intercontinental Championship in a ladder match at the Tables, Ladders, Chairs and Stairs event. If Ziggler isn’t inserted into the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture towards or after WrestleMania then Bray Wyatt would be a great feud for him.
It would also be beneficial to Bray Wyatt, as both of the superstars are higher ranked superstars and anyone below them wouldn’t help them develop at all – they would both put each other over. The feud itself would be entertaining as well, because the fans love Dolph Ziggler so much, the hatred for Bray Wyatt would continue to grow and truly establish him into the true, dominant heel we know he should be.
I think we all know that Randy Orton will be returning to the WWE as a face and that run could last well into the new year and beyond; if it does then one feud the WWE need to ensure comes to fruition is one between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton. The Viper taking on The New Face of Fear could be another dangerous feud which could bring out a much darker side to Orton once again.
It’s been a while since anybody has really gotten personal with Orton like Triple H and John Cena have in the past and it’d be a huge boost to the Bray Wyatt character if he is able to stoop to new lows to bring out the dangerous side in Randy Orton once more, not the one we’ve seen hiding behind The Authority for over a year.
Bray Wyatt needs to be built back up to the monster he was when he was against Cena and that could all begin against The Undertaker and the WWE need to capitalise on this feud by ensuring he engages in another big name feud which could potentially catapult him into a title picture.
