Nothing screams "sports-centric" quite like Bray Wyatt.

Of course FOX wants him, he's the hottest act in the company. But he belongs on RAW.

Re: FOX Reportedly Wants Bray Wyatt On WWE SmackDown

Whatever happens this will be one of the downfalls of trying to keep 2 major networks happy.

Raw is the flagship but SD being on a broadcast network like FOX is a huge deal as it is available in way more homes than USA ever will. There are definitely going to be some power struggles as clearly FOX wants all the talent they see as relevant. Brock, Becky, and Wyatt now being probably the top 3 attractions they have at the moment.

Of course I want him on the A show, but I can only trust my own personal booking.

If I'm Vince McMahon, what I do is have him squash Seth, get drafted to SmackDown as the Universal champion, Brock gets cost his title match by somebody, so he goes off and feuds with them, and the New Day just flips and they go to Raw, and Kofi is WWE Champion on Raw, and then you just change the belt back to a real design (I'm not making that terrible belt blue, lol).

If he has to be on Raw to have his career saved, then fine. I hate him being on the B show, but fine. I can't trust Vince with these A show people, I just can't. Bray isn't one of his guys. It doesn't matter how much Fox wants him, it's Vince. He'll sabotage Bray with a smile on his face. Hell, he's gonna do it anyway and Bray will probably stay on Raw. He doesn't want this character over.

And besides, at the end of the day, and we'll see if this actually happens, there's STILL a good chance Raw stays the A show ANYWAY, just because it's been ingrained in every wrestling fans mind for almost 30 years that Monday night is wrestling night. Friday is a bad night for tv. Whichever show gets the higher ratings is the A show, so if he's champion on Raw, and it gets higher ratings than SmackDown, there's your A show, regardless of where the stars are.

Like I said, though, if he doesn't win the title at HIAC, I don't care anymore anyway. Just fire him at that point, there's nothing you can do to make me interested again.

In kayfabe how do you draft the friend? Redshirt Bray is in a weird TV land and the friend teleports in the dark.

Itís not like they have a mailing address.

The same way you draft everyone else. You either get on a podium, and you say SmackDown chooses The Fiend as their first draft pick, second draft pick, whatever, if that's how they do it, or it's a random draw and his name comes up like they've done it the last several years. It's not hard.

"The Friend" That's how they should call his Firefly Fun House persona since, you know, the line between Friend and Fiend is so fragile... LET HIM IN!

Fox reportedly wants anyone remotely popular.
