Fans are always hooked in and paying attention when Bray Wyatt is on screen. His promos alone are worth tuning in for as he provides entertainment every single time, however it’s no secret that The Eater of Worlds is failing to hit the high marks we expect from him.
He made his debut on the main roster as Bray Wyatt and instantly targeted Kane alongside Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, since then everyone thought he was destined for greatness – and he probably still is – but bad booking has resulted in fans not taking Bray Wyatt seriously enough.
It’s almost as if he’s all talk and very little action.
WORKING WITH STARS
He’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the finest in the industry, Kane, Daniel Bryan, The Shield when both teams were incredibly over with the WWE Universe, Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt has also gone on to secure a match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31; an honour in itself.
But the WWE have made a habit with Bray Wyatt, he’s incredible at carrying a feud on his own and hyping up a match and making it a ‘must see’, but in the end Wyatt more often than not loses and after each loss with so much talk beforehand, he continues to fall further and further down the ladder which is a shame considering he has the ability to become a successful WWE World Heavyweight Champion for years to come.
I feel that Bray Wyatt is in an interesting position now, he’s already started to hype up his next feud on WWE television. He’s been talking about motivation, and how the superstar he is targeting can lift all of the weights in the world but that weight will blind and suffocate him; the superstar he’s talking about is Ryback.
We should expect to see a feud between Ryback and Bray Wyatt kick off any time soon with the plan being the two will face off at the WWE Payback pay-per-view.
The WWE have a big task on their hands, they need to ensure Wyatt remains entertaining and mysterious in every single one of his promos and he needs to walk into his feud as the stronger superstar. But Bray Wyatt needs to win if he’s to be taken seriously.
He did a lot of talking before facing The Undertaker and John Cena the year earlier, but he fell at the final hurdle and fans are left thinking, ‘is that it?’ so he needs to win so he’s still taken seriously and is still floating around the main event picture so when the writers need him as a world title contender, he’s ready to fill that role.
John Cena and Randy Orton will always be WWE World Heavyweight Championship contenders, Roman Reigns still needs work whilst Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler continue to be overlooked. With Brock Lesnar on a limited schedule, the WWE needs a serious contender and they have the right man in Bray Wyatt, it’s just a matter of helping him get there successfully.
If he can’t be victorious in his feud with Ryback and capitalise on it with another big win, then I feel it’ll be a while before we see Bray Wyatt as a contender for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
