Re: So why isn't Bray "RATINGZ" Wyatt the Universal Champion?

Of everyone on the roster you wanna go with Bray Wyatt?! Bray Wyatt who was given a chance as WWE champion and was exposed for being worse than most ppl thought? That Bray Wyatt?! The guy is horrendous, and his mic "skills" are absolute trash. I have a long ass list to go with before Bray

In fact, in current WWE it's better to strike immediately when a character has momentum. The longer he's on the roster, the colder Vinces bad booking is going to make him. You've got to establish him as a headliner before Vince has the chance to bring him down, not after.

Believe me, the ratings aren't going to drop any more than they otherwise would (in fact, they'll probably go up because it's something different) if you put the title on a fresh character who just came back. It will be fine. Especially with what the alternatives are. Hell, they put the title on Balor within one month of him joining the roster and there wasn't a crash, and he isn't even close to being as good or as popular as Bray Wyatt.

I agree and wish he was immediately put into a title feud, but I think the hate the Balor feud is getting is a bit much. He is going to beat Balor as the demon. I don't care what anyone on here believes, but it is a BIG rub. I'd argue beating Finn as the demon is the one of the biggest kayfabe accomplishments you can have besides being a world champion or beating Bork. He is going to be in the title mix post Summerslam, watch.

From what I've heard, Balor is not scheduled to be the Demon, he's scheduled to be just.....Balor. And no, beating Balor is not a big rub, Demon or otherwise. He needed to beat a star when he came back. You've entrenched him firmly in the midcard with this feud. Nobody cares about him beating a guy who loses all the time just because he wins the 1 time a year he wears some goofy paint. Not to mention the Demon has already lost in NXT, and yes, NXT and other shows do count towards your record besides Raw and SmackDown, as evidenced by their refusal to let Asuka lose anywhere but WrestleMania prior to breaking her streak.

And even if he's "in the title mix" post SummerSlam, it's not enough to be a contender. NOBODY is beating Brock Lesnar right now. Or Seth Rollins for that matter.....except Brock Lesnar. Being a contender will doom him, you need to put him above those guys.

He can't start losing. He just can't. His character has always needed to be dominant to work. Once you start having him lose, then we're right back where we were before with him. This is a fresh start, he needs to win every match he's in for at least a year before putting over a new guy.

I wasn't happy with Finn being the first person to feud with, but gotta roll with it now. Since he started doing the funhouse skits I said literally the exact same thing you are now. He CAN NOT LOSE. He shouldn't even have competitive matches. If Finn really isn't coming out as the Demon then this is a HUGE missed opportunity to put Bray over. He better destroy normal Balor. He can't get 50/50 booking or the 'aura' behind the Fiend dies. If I was booking I would have him take out the entire roster and eventually take the belt off Brock. But I'm not and as you said, nobody is beating Bork. Curious to see how they book his match at SS. HE CAN'T SELL FOR FINN.

In my opinion it’s not Seth or Brock’s fault or Becky’s fault or kofi’s fault, the product from top to bottom is just trash. In 1995 Bret and hbk were some of the lowest drawing champions in history yet this are 2 of the top 10 greatest in ring performers of all time. The product was trash then before the attitude era boom.
PirateMonkE and optikk sucks like this.

I certainly hope so but nah, won't happen unfortunately, WWE will continue making record profits for the duration of their current tv deals then, when the ratings have dropped to below 1 million, limp on, moving to increasingly obscure channels (like TNA), slowly dragging the rest of the industry down with them.

I think you hit the nail on the head without even realizing it. Bret and Shawn didnít draw because they werenít great promos and werenít physically intimidating guys. Their strength was in-ring and that didnít draw. Seth and Kofi are a poor manís version of those guys.
