The Wyatt Family SHOULDN'T be doing the same thing that the Shield are doing. Every stable doesn't HAVE to be a "biggest threat to the company". They shouldn't be thrown into the main event scene right away because then there's nowhere to go but down and we'd just complain that they've been "buried"

HOWEVER, if all they do is squash Zack Ryder or whomever for the first few weeks and then immediately go into a feud with a main eventer, all they've served to do is further perpetuate the "Non-main event faces don't matter" environment that we've been subjected to for the past few years, and thus their presence is no real improvement to the product.

Ideally, they should be firmly in the midcard, but they should be booked dominantly over midcard faces. Not squashing them, but always winning. Put them over as a force in the midcard, with midcard faces stepping up to challenge them. The Wyatt Family can save the midcard.
Normally I would agree but, like Ambrose, Wyatt is a main-event level talent. And unlike Ambrose, Wyatt is heavily gimmick-based and intimidation-based, so they really need to establish him straight away or his character will end up looking like a joke. TBH I'm really not sure what Wyatt's longevity will be because of this, someone like Ambrose would have made it to the top even if he'd started off feuding with Hornswoggle but Wyatt really needs the rub and proper booking to make his character work. There are plenty of guys in NXT who could be used to beef up the midcard, Wyatt is a different level of talent and the kind that really needs a strong push straight away. I'd argue he needs it a lot more than The Shield did.

Re: Bray Wyatt: The eater of worlds is coming

Personally, I'd have actually done it the same way as they did on NXT. Have Bray Wyatt debut, then debut the family after a few weeks. I know they initially did that because Wyatt was injured for a while, but it was still a good way to do it.

Re: Bray Wyatt: The eater of worlds is coming

I like the idea someone had about people in the crowd wearing lamb masks but I think it'd be cooler if plants were the ones wearing them. If they're gonna go with Wyatt being a pseudo-cult leader they'd have more meaning if people just started showing up wearing them as a sign of their devotion. It'd be like Punk shaving people's heads but a lot darker in my opinion.

That's how I saw it happening as well. Like "if this guy wasn't dangerous enough, shit, there's more?"

Re: Bray Wyatt: The eater of worlds is coming

always felt husky had that old school quality of a wrestler who became his character rather than nowadays where it feels like wrestlers are ppl pretending to be wrestlers

Look at Bray Wyatt, the guy completely turned his image and promo style around and went from being a complete goof to one of the best talents in years. Absolutely NOTHING has changed with McGillicutty, he's still trash just like he was 3 years ago.
Wyatt was never a goof, the only goofy thing about him was his name, his promo ability was still decent.

Re: Bray Wyatt: The eater of worlds is coming

I'm actually really excited about his debut! I really liked him in Nexus. I thought his physic made him stand out from the rest in a odd but peculiar way.
