Bray Wyatt doesn’t need a title to show WWE fans just how good he really is.
The evil genius of the company and resident stalker is about to take the biggest step forward in his short career in a WWE ring.
Challenging not only The Undertaker, but bringing Kane back into the mix is like trying to decide which poison to drink first. Both could be a deadly combination that leads to an expanded role in the main event picture.

His Time Is Now
Wyatt's time is now, but it really has been “now” for a lot longer than fans might have realized. Since his match at WrestleMania last year with The Dead Man, everything Wyatt has done has led to this moment where he breaks away into a stratosphere that puts him in elite company. Getting over by way of two of the most respected men in the company and business is quite a feat.
Most wrestlers wait their entire careers to get this far this fast. Wyatt has made it look easy.
Somewhere, Kevin Sullivan must be smiling. Raven must be smiling. A devious James Mitchell must be laughing.
Wyatt does it just like the veterans who made it popular.
He may be inching closer to the main event, but the numbers of opponents, like the same issues that Seth Rollins would face or John Cena, are dwindling. Who steps forward? It would appear every major star has been in a program with him. That's both good and bad at the same time.
Dolph Ziggler's still available, but he is chasing pretty boy Tyler Breeze. Goldust would be amazing in this scenario, but he is out of action. Cesaro isn't viable. Dean Ambrose has been used before. Kane could continue the feud once he and his Brother of Destruction leave Atlanta.
Don't rule out someone else like Cody Rhodes, should Rhodes at some point turns face.
Wyatt doesn't need a belt around his waist to validate his greatness, but it wouldn't hurt. Dwindling numbers on the roster will have created scrambling for opponents.
Sometimes, that is a good thing. Right now, it isn't. The better Wyatt gets, the harder it becomes to book him. That's the mark of a star on the rise. That's the mark of a problem that still exists.
And all the while, Wyatt takes another step up the ladder of greatness. No title is needed. Only new victims.
