WWE can listen to it's fans but if it's fans want to push someone just because he was their flea circus hero what's the end result? It's not always growth.
And I'm not saying that towards Bray or any wrestler in particular. There's guys like Punk, Bryan who were worthy of pushes and Bray may be there eventually but as of now his character is just too green to run with the belt.
I think WWE has 2 options here. 1). Turn Seth. They've already made him into a b so go out all of the way. Similar to Michaels v Taker in 97. 2). Have Bray cost the Fiend the match. But that's just my opinion and I'm not claiming it's any better than anyone elses.
I mean you literally just DID claim your opinion was better than mine 2 paragraphs ago.....
I have watched WWE for that long, I don't watch other promotions. Building up a strong, main event heel, albeit not always a monster, but fine, and then building up a babyface beating them is something they've always done. Hell, it's what they did for the last year. The only difference between Brock and Bray is that people actually want to see Bray and he doesn't make people want to disconnect from the product, and for him to leave, because he hasn't been marginalized by their booking in the sense that he's not portrayed as a guy who hates pro wrestling, and he's not a fucking chore to watch who stands around doing nothing in the ring, plus has his manager say his entire diatribe for him because he can't get a point over himself.
I'm not saying that Bray Wyatt is the person you build the company around for the next 5 years, I'm saying you give him a strong run until SummerSlam 2018 to SummerSlam 2019, you give him a year to run through all the opponents who are tired, or stale, or just aren't world champion level, and you have him repair the damage that's been done by pushing a bunch of uncharismatic geeks, and then you re-build a babyface like Owens, who would be the best guy for it because of his natural charisma, mic skills, and relatability to the audience, elsewise you sign somebody with those capabilities and put him over - hell, get CM Punk on the phone, he's open to it now, and that guy beats Bray and that's the babyface who becomes your big deal babyface. Bray Wyatt is never going to perpetually be your flag bearer but he NEEDS title runs now and again and he NEEDS to be your big obstacle so that when he does lose, it means something and it makes a star.
This character is not "too green" to win the belt, and if he is, what does that say about everyone on the roster who's getting their ass kicked by this guy who's "too green" to win the belt, especially the champion who's crying and screaming in the corner in fear of this guy. Your top babyface is a pussy. That's a character, performer aside, and the performer who's playing him, even booked well is not a main eventer, that's a character who's not ready to be the champion. It's not the most over guy on the show, he's ready. Bray Wyatt is also an established act who everybody is familiar with, it's just a fresh coat of paint and it's their responsibility to have that character win the title and not slash their key into the paint job.
