Let’s take a look at Bray Wyatt’s run since being called up in the summer of 2013.
– Mid-card feuds with Kane and Daniel Bryan that lent him just enough credibility for a WrestleMania program with Cena. Cena wins LOL.
– Mid-card feuds with Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho that lent him just enough credibility to be squashed by the Undertaker at WrestleMania
– Long-winded feud with Roman Reigns clearly designed to get Reigns over as a babyface
– Current feud with the Brothers of Destruction over supernatural shenanigans
Everytime Bray gets put into a new feud, and they’ve mostly been with high-level guys, people wonder if this is when he gets elevated to that next level.
People complain about how he never goes over in the end, but talk about how much talent he has and the originality of his character, etc.
I’m convinced that Bray Wyatt’s existence on the main roster is to provide new, fresh programs for "bigger" stars on the roster. His character and presentation is unique enough that it provides something different than the other typical WWE-style angles that we get, so it does serve as something different for the Cenas and Reigns’ of the world. However, there’s no evidence that anything has been set up for Wyatt to become more of a force to be reckoned with in the ring.
Is there anyway to re-establish some credibility to the character as someone who can win big matches at this point? There’s no way they’re going over Taker and Kane this Sunday. Where to after that?
Normally in these sorts of situations, what would happen is that Bray Wyatt would leave the territory, go to WCW or the AWA or Texas or Memphis or whatever to freshen up and follow the buzzards somewhere new for a while. Now, with one company and no way to actually end a storyline, he just kind of floats from feud to feud. It’s fine, I guess, but as noted he’s never going to be a top guy that way. He’s just 90s Undertaker, without the drawing power.
