Returning to WWE programming at the conclusion of Extreme Rules, Bray Wyatt has been cemented as one of the top stars on Friday Night SmackDown. His continued attention to detail in his character has won over yet more fans, while his current presentation has left many intrigued as to what WWE has planned.
“I just loved the way they [WWE] teased it all the way through [Extreme Rules]. He is one of those creative cats who you got to hold them down. He’s got all these crazy ideas and bottom line is, that’s some really good sh*t man. Like, what they, how they went to the crowd and showed the different little characters from his [Firefly Fun House], really cool. The lights are all out there and then you think you’re not going to see it and boom, the door opens.”
DDP Claims Bray Wyatt Should’ve Been The Next Undertaker
Elaborating on Bray Wyatt’s immaculate character, Diamond Dallas Page claimed that Wyatt should’ve beaten The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31. This would have marked the second loss at ‘Mania for ‘The Deadman’, following Brock Lesnar ending the famous undefeated WrestleMania streak the year prior:
“I always thought Bray should’ve beat ‘Taker and he becomes the next ‘Taker. How they handled Bray was really good in the beginning before, but then it sort of lost and got a little tarnished and then they brought him back with that new style of character, and I thought, ‘Okay, where is he going with this,’ and it just went and fizzled out and they let him go and I was like, ‘Oh my God, how soon before Tony [Khan] goes to pick him up?’ My question is, that character, how do you make him a heel? Maybe they listen to the crowd and they keep him the babyface.”
Bray Wyatt appears to be working on WWE SmackDown as a babyface for the foreseeable future, having cut a rare out-of-character promo on the October 14th broadcast of the blue brand, explaining how he never thought he’d get back to this point.
