Re: The Fiend is awesome

Best part of the show by a country mile. My wife agreed she was like "this should be awful and it is cool as fuck." She added how awesome the theme is.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

What about feeding a heel to Bray next? Put over that he doesn't care about heel/face alignments and will fuck anyone up. The only problem with that is there aren't any credible heels.

Cena isn't credible enough. He's jobbed to everyone, including jobber Bray. Personally, if you INSIST on giving him another feud, I would have him destroy and retire The Undertaker at Survivor Series, where it all began for him.....but Taker is a selfish prick and would never put the kid over, as we well know from previous encounters.

A dominant victory over Goldberg would be good. A dominant victory over Brock himself would be good. Mind you they'd never happen. This is the problem. Any time I think of someone who's genuinely credible, the thought in my head is "it won't happen".

He could beat Roman Reigns.....if they'd let him. I'm sure they'd let him beat Roman before they'd let him beat Goldberg or Brock or Undertaker, but I don't know.

I don't think it's too early, though. I think people would be willing to accept Bray beating Rollins. He's not new, people know who he is. He doesn't need a lot of build. But again, I think Rollins is holding the title until WrestleMania 37.

I like his fiend gimmick too, but Bray Wyatt/Wyatt Family gimmick in NXT was goddamn perfection before Vince ruined it on the main roster with all the supernatural shit.

Bray Wyatt’s NXT gimmick was so good you had guys like Jericho requesting a match on NXT specifically to work with Bray. And this was when NXT was still an actual developmental show, not the trendy “3rd brand” it is today.

Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return

Last night was the first time I ever heard this is awesome chants for a damn entrance. I agree with everything you said here though. We'll really know if they're giving him a good chance with how he's booked the next few weeks. I don't think Rollins will be champ into Mania though. Maybe Bray goes to SD and goes after Kofi.

I hope I'm wrong about that though, The whole Bray Wyatt/Fiend stuff has been great and I'll enjoy it as long as I can....

Re: The Fiend is awesome

The way Bray looked last night he could literally squash anyone and they wouldn't look bad, so give him Goldberg.

Don't want to see him having matches on free TV just yet though

I'm fairly sure this has happened before.

Phht, speak for yourself, I won't. I'll know they're giving him a chance when he wins the title. People probably thought he was getting a chance under his original gimmick when he went undefeated for nearly a year and look how that turned out. Everything with him is always about putting someone else over.

Of course he's gonna be champion going into Mania. He just beat Brock Lesnar CLEAN. Nobody has done that since 2012. He's gonna be the champion until the WrestleMania AFTER this WrestleMania. WHO is gonna beat him? There's nobody credible enough.

This was a CLEAR passing of the torch. As clear as clear gets. This was the victory Roman Reigns never got.

I doubt it. The rosters are supposed to stay the way they are, and he's listed as a Raw guy. Besides, Bray as champion on the Fox network? LOL, I'll believe it when I see it. Knowing WWE, I can see Brock going to SmackDown to beat Kofi. The only thing that might put a pin in that is Heyman is working on Raw and might not be able to travel to two different cities a week because he's got to be busy focusing all his creative efforts on Raw.....but I could still see it because it's what they do and Fox probably wants Brock.

I remember in like 2013 I was in Fort Wayne Indiana seeing a Smackdown show and the dark match was Wyatt in his preaching gimmick and I was like who the fuck is this but then when he started talking I was like wow this guys mic skills are insane and then he impressed me big time in the ring so yes I am with you when you say his nxt gimmick was better.

1.Sting
2.CM Punk
