The problem is with the lack of character development overall there are not enough wrestlers to feed to The Fiend to make things interesting.

I know. I'm still on Cloud 9 from last night lol. That shit was so awesome. The whole hurt and heal shit is exactly how I wanted them to do it too. Bray fighting with himself during the match showing that the fiend is 'controlling' him. They literally are doing the character perfect. Go watch the entrance again the way he sinks down during the hurt part of the music and pops out for the heal was brilliant. He should be a main champion by Survivor Series. Let him dominate until Mania and let the babyface inevitably take him down. Or have him dominate and finally capture the title at Mania. This is the best character they've had in god knows how long. I am so scared they're going to fuck this up.

Strowman is not any higher on the card than Finn, lol. It would mean more to beat him in the sense that he's big, though. My worry with that is that they'd have him struggle too much to beat Braun. He should not struggle with any opponent, until he makes his way to either Brock or Seth, where you can have a competitive match, but he must win.

And I would agree that he should win the title and go until Mania, if it weren't for the fact that he's 0-3 at WrestleMania. He needs a win at WrestleMania. Let him hold the title until around SummerSlam, maybe MITB if you just really have to beat him but not WrestleMania.

They need to keep Braun and The Fiend away from each other. That could be a big time title match down the road but for now. If anything have Braun be the guy who finally takes down The Fiend at Mania.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

this is so much better then wyatts family gimmick. I feel like this one can actually stay. That head lantern was dope as fuck. I honestly did not see wyatt wrestling with the mask on. Thats a cool touch.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

it was great and all but I still don't like the mask... looks something taken out from the purge movie.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

So long as they don't turn him into a clown show as they have done previously and keep him booked strong, I'm happy with it. I love the way Bray wrestles and he has a ton of charisma. Putting him over the smiley twink was a good idea.

Roster is weak as shit right now man. I don't want him anywhere near Ricochet right now because I know those idiots love him. I also don't want him near AJ as I don't want him going for a B-title. That doesn't leave many credible faces.

Didn't I JUST say no losing at WrestleMania? He's lost ALL of his WrestleMania matches. This is a hot character. He needs to win.

I'm fine with Strowman being the guy to beat him when he does lose the title, but not at WrestleMania. He can hold the title a few extra months, and honestly, Strowman has lost so much credibility, he needs the build up to get back to that level of overness anyway.

Either way, there ain't gonna be a fucking title match because Seth is gonna be the Universal champion for 2 years.

It's a botched concept from DC's New 52 reboot of Joker, in which he has another villain cut his face off and then sew it back on.

I don't want him near Ricochet either, but if you're more scared of Ricochet beating him than Strowman, you need your head examined. Ricochet's a geek. Paul Heyman might love him but Vince sure as hell doesn't, and guess who books the show.

So do you put the rocket on and give him Rollins right away? I think he needs one more dominant feud before hand. Just not sure who the right person would be unless someone like Cena came back and put him over. (my optimism is showing again lmao this would never happen)
