Bray Wyatt needs a good summer rivalry

Published 6 Comments

It's no secret that The Eater of Worlds is a man that knows how to turn a rivalry into golden must-see TV and has been doing this since his emergence on the main roster a couple of years ago.

His rivalries with such stars as John Cena, Dean Ambrose, and Chris Jericho are legendary, making already established WWE stars better and keeping up and comers on the right track.

So, with that said, we are on the way to the 2015 SummerSlam. Who would be a SummerSlam worthy rival for The New Face of Fear?

Let's take a good look at a few potential candidates...

Right off the bat, Roman Reigns has the potential to be a phenomenal rival for Bray Wyatt. Anyone who is paired with Wyatt has come out much better in the end when you look at the business. Much better in the ring and much, much better on the mic, which is one thing that many critics state is a major thing holding Reigns back.

A feud with Bray Wyatt over the summer would most definitely fix that. If Reigns manages to win the Money In The Bank contract, this could be added fuel for the enigmatic Bray Wyatt to use in an epic promo.

Now this is a bit of a reach, but it has the makings of a stand alone DVD. A feud between Bray Wyatt and Seth Rollins could become a rivalry of the year and match of the year candidate if cared for appropriately by writers.

For the last month we've heard Bray mention that the reason he targeted Ryback was because he was simply in the way. Keeping that phrase in mind, a Rollins-Wyatt pairing would be phenomenal!

Add in the element of the World Heavyweight Championship, and Wyatt could claim that it is his time and one Sister Abigail at SummerSlam later, we could be looking a new champion.


How awesome would this be? Continuing with the Seth Rollins part, it was noted Lesnar would be back between July and August. Adding Lesnar to the fold will make things interesting seeing how he is due a long awaited rematch for the title he lost at WrestleMania.

Rollins will have a huge target on his back and an angry, wrath-filled Beast coming for him.

Bray Wyatt on the same token, is looking to be the top man, the New Face of Fear versus The Beast versus The Future of WWE... This has amazing written all over it.


This one is interesting. Rumors surfaced a while back about a potential Wyatt Family reunion that never took place. This would be an interesting play off of those rumors.

We could see Bray Wyatt in a match against a random opponent. Lights go out. When they come on there is Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Bray would look pleased until Harper turns to look at Wyatt.

Bray would spout out a "I freed you!" And Harper would pounce, and pounce violently. Luke Harper would be Bray Wyatt's toughest opponent hands down. This pairing would make Harper's career, again, if handled correctly.


We witnessed this pairing when Bray first arrived to the main roster. While many would say the words "Why Kane? That would be stupid."

Be patient, this could be very interesting. Kane could very well be a stepping stone to the bigger prize at the end of the tunnel...the World Championship. A restart of the Kane-Bray Wyatt feud could do great things for both men.

First off, Bray Wyatt being the character he is could use the fact that he will no longer do the bidding of the machine without a payment.

We could see Kane laid out in front of The Authority's room. Seth would be blamed for it but in the end no one knows. This coupled with cryptic messages about the machine crumbling from within, would then be escalated by Bray finally stating his intentions: He wants a shot at Rollins at Summer Slam for the title.

Kane then voices his opinion, declines the request and says he is first before Rollins. Then the month of July sees an epic series of matches involving Kane and Wyatt leading to their matchup, which Wyatt would need to win.

Who would you like to see The Eater of Worlds rivalled with?
