His gimmick is so weird and cartoonish. As a viewer why would we believe he actually wants to be champion?
Gee, I don't know, maybe because he challenged the champion. Maybe that's why people would believe it.
Enough of this fucking "This character doesn't belong as the champion" shit. NOBODY FUCKING CARES if the character isn't a traditional champion. Go tell everyone in that building who was PELTING GARBAGE AT SETH ROLLINS, booing and chanting "AEW", "restart the match" and "refund" that "Bray Wyatts character doesn't belong as the champion" and see if you don't have an angry mob running after you. The audience was crystal clear last night. Bray Wyatt is their Universal Champion and Seth Rollins is not. This was a bigger fucking debacle than the two Daniel Bryan Royal Rumble snubs.
I don't get why everyone is so up in arms that he didn't win the title. He was protected in the match, so it's not like anyone was given a clean victory over him.
Uhh.....actually Seth Rollins WAS given a clean victory over him. The official decision is a referee stoppage, ie Seth knocked him out. Knocked out by a pussy who CRIES in the corner.
And the whole idea of "protection" is bullshit. It's a dishonest facade to try to rope people into believing Vince cares about Bray, all for the purpose of eventually putting someone else over. It's not "protection", it's a lie. Protection is WINNING. That's what protection is. If you don't want to beat somebody, you don't book the match. Period.
If you're a fan of his and if you want him to win the title - then you should be happy he didn't win.
Build up to the moment, give fans a reason to believe that he cares and is legitimately wanting to be champ when he goes for the title. Build up to a better moment.
WHO is going to believe that he's going to win the title after the insane lengths they went to to keep the belt OFF of him? It's impossible. There's nothing they can do to make me believe in a title journey for him after this.
There is no better moment coming. He will never be hotter than he just was, and this "give people a reason to believe he wants the title" shit is nonsense. He doesn't need a rallying cry, he's a god damn monster heel, not Sami Zayn in NXT. We're not trying to get the audience to get behind him as an underdog, that's not the point. He should be a force of destruction who just wins the belt because he CAN and holds it indefinitely until the moment comes when it's time for somebody to beat him.
Also - i don't understand why everyone is so upset for the overbooking. Have you seen his gimmick? He's really, really weird. Booking weird matches/finishes suits his character. What did you expect him to do, come out and wrestle a legitimate 5 star technical wrestling match with Rollins, and go over clean? That's now how gimmicks like his work.
I don't care about the overbooking so I have no reason to address this, but he should look completely unbeatable. No issue with that, only with the idea of keeping the title off him. Your strongest booked character NOT being the champion is completely stupid. The champion is supposed to be the best. If somebody is CLEARLY better than your top babyface then your top babyface is a worthless champion.
I legitimately don't understand all the outrage.
Of course you don't.
Some people will defend ANYTHING. Amazing.
i'm not trolling and saying "bray sucks". I think he's a great character (not my cup of tea though) and very talented. If you want him as champion, there should be a good story/build to it, and we should be given reason to think his character cares about it first.
Again, go tell the fans who were rioting that "this build wasn't good enough".
OBEY YOUR FUCKING CUSTOMERS.
