The Fiend is awesome

I'm loving Bray Wyatt's new character. That entrance was fuckin dope. The music and aura were perfect. I was completely entranced and the crowd was loving it. I don't remember the last time an entrance got a "This is awesome" chant. I'm a sucker for detail so when I saw The Fiend coming out with that lantern shaped as Wyatt's head I thought that was a great touch and throwback to his old character. Not gonna lie I'm not a huge fan of the Mandible Claw, but it's working out for him so far.

I don't know if they put him up against Rollins now, but I don't think he should be losing anything until Wrestlemania at the earliest. The Fiend could be a game-changer and if handled correctly, could be on the level of an old school Kane or Undertaker.

So you're saying he could either be a geek or a star?

I still think everything about this gimmick in and of itself, from the Firefly Fun House, to the ring gear, to the remixed theme (until the chorus anyway) is bad and shouldn't work, but it does work only because he has so much charisma and the presence of a madman.

It's impossible for me to get excited about it, though, because I KNOW they're going to ruin it. If this was AEW I'd have faith, but in WWE, uh uh. We don't get to have nice things like real main eventers as champions, we get Rollins and Reigns.

Yeah, I assume that when Finn returns in a couple of months, we'll get the Demon V Fiend, and it'll go Balor's way, leading to a decider.

I don't mind that too much. Handled correctly, they should both come out of the feud looking good, regardless who wins the rubber match.

The entrance was sick! I'm excited to see how the character develops.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

Haven't gotten as hype as I was last night in years. My wife was going crazy too. Coolest thing they've done in forever. JUST. DON'T. HAVE. HIM. LOSE. Next victim should be someone higher up the card then Finn. Maybe Strowman.

Re: The Fiend is awesome

Not going to lie I was impressed even though I've previously hated Bray Wyatt. If Bray and his opponents can keep kayfabe, and they don't do anything silly (maggots in the ring etc) they have potentially have something really special their hands. I'm holding back any further praise/judgement until we see a 10+ minute match from him. I have been stung too many times before!
