The booking of the Wyatt family on the November 5 edition of SmackDown has been what the Wyatt’s have desperately needed for months.
The WWE’s most twisted stable faced off against The Prime Time Players and The Lucha Dragons on Thursday night in a four-on-four Survivor Series elimination match, earning themselves a clean sweep against their opponents.
It was a refreshing and downright surprising sight to see all four Wyatt’s avoid elimination, considering their poor booking throughout the whole year.

Bray Wyatt has yet to capture a single belt in his entire duration in WWE and found himself on the losing end once again at this year’s Wrestlemania against the Undertaker, in addition to coming up short in a several month-long feud against Roman Reigns.
Luke Harper and Erick Rowan haven’t been booked as serious threats to anyone and have almost jobbed to an extent in brawls against Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns over the past few months.
Braun Strowman is the only member that has looked unstoppable. His triangle choke hold submission has yet to see anyone break free from his powerful grip.
It doesn’t take a smart person to know that The Wyatt family need to be dangerous. No superstar should be able to look at them and think that they are beatable as singles competitors, never mind as a collective unit.
The direction that the Wyatt’s go in, in the next few months, shall be intriguing to see. It goes without saying that they desperately need a win at Survivor Series this month in order to keep this run of legitimate momentum going following their collection of Kane and Undertaker’s souls.
The Wyatt’s, in general, have had a poor 2015. However, SmackDown appeared to show that they are slowly reclaiming their status as a force to be reckoned with, which is what they should be.
