Re: The entire Wyatt family is getting a monster push

Let's break it down:

- Wyatt - Got his sudden, yet deserved, push after Randy won the RR. His push was gradual before RR and after EC the proverbial rocket has been strapped to his fucking ass.
- Orton - Its Orton, winning the RR and winning the title against Bray isn't something unexpected from him. After all, arguably he's the third biggest star (full-time wise) behind Cena & Styles
- Strowman - He got consistent push ever since the brand split. The 'natural' push.
- Harper - Went from obscurity to possibly about to beat Styles because Randy won the RR & Wyatt won the title.

Which of these sticks out like a sore thumb that doesn't belong? Harper. Harper joining the title match in a triple threat greatly devalues the meaning of the match. Orton vs Wyatt is much more than the 'wyatt' triple threat because Wyatt/Orton already has a story to continue.

I'm sure Rowan will help Harper against Orton and Wyatt. Still hoping it's a ruse to destroy Orton tho.

OT: Such a breath of fresh air that they are focusing on Wyatts for once. The SHIELD headlining everything was getting old

The Wyatt Family
Bray Wyatt
Luke Harper
Erick Rowan
Braun Strowman

Re: The entire Wyatt family is getting a monster push

I love it. Bray has always been great...and no exceptions this year. And I'm super into Randy Orton--who isn't?--so I think it's cool that he's in the fam now.

What did you think of Orton "pledging allegiance" to Bray? I wasn't expecting Orton to be that...compliant. Do you think he'll turn on him in the next couple ppvs? And then have an epic rivalry with Luke Harper returning to the fold...who knows. But Randy and Bray are a perfect alliance...both hearing voices and all haha.

Man I thought there was a rumor for a minute about them bringing in a female to join the family, perhaps the elusive Sister Abigail. Is that still in the air? Part of me would really be into a creepy chick wrestler to be in the family, but another part of me likes how vague Bray's Sister Abigail references are...they just add to his crazy and creepy factor.

Does Eric Rowan still own a world renowned vinyard in California?

I think the story isn't about a triple threat Wyatt family match, but rather a way to have Wyatt win without defeating Orton clean, and in meanwhile showing how he's a sort of evil genius when it will be eventually revealed that Harper never left the family to begin with.

Of course that's what I'm hoping for, but if they actually pull the trigger on this story, I could overlook how inferior Harper is kayfabe wise.

Re: The entire Wyatt Family is getting a monster push

I'm especially happy for Harper. Braun and Bray ? I like that they are getting a push but I think it was somewhat predictable. Bray Wyatt kept having big matches at Wrestlemania so they trusted him while Braun had to get a push with his size.

But Harper ? I would've loved to see him champs with Rowan and after he did not happen, I dealt with the fact he would never get a push... So getting a WWE Title match at Wrestlemania ? Oh My God, this is incredibly awesome and I will probably root for him in the Triple Threat

Re: The entire Wyatt Family is getting a monster push

Orton isn't a legitimate member of the family and Harper and Strowman aren't really getting pushes. Strowman is a monster heel who's been built up to be fed to Reigns. The odds of him actually getting pushed beyond Fast Lane are quite low, even if he manages to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. He'll probably go exactly the way of every other monster heel and become a low card jobber or comedy babyface, which is dumb, but that's how Vince has always booked monsters. Harper is just a body to get pinned at WrestleMania to protect the loser of Bray vs Orton.

Is there any use for Strowman after that loss? Giants just don't sell in 2017, and he's not exactly Lesnar in that he can take losses and still come off like a beast.
