Its Bray Wyatt, he wouldn't make a good champion. He was champion before and thankfully they took it off him quick.

That was so obviously an insult I didn't think I needed to say it. Never once did I compare Husky Harris to "Le Fiend". It was a joke that only really highlights how Wyatt jumps from cringe gimmick to cringe gimmick. And it's still just as laughable that you would compare "Le Fiend" to the Joker regardless.

And? What does this prove? Avengers Endgame is the highest grossing movie of all time, and I bet you a huge chunk of that audience (a majority, actually) have never even sniffed a comic book in their lives. You wanna know what this proves? Comic book movies are popular. Especially comic book movies with great reviews.

Wow, go figure, who could've guessed.

And you think Wyatt is going to tap into that demographic with his edgy Ronald McDonald costume?

Wow, insanely sound logic here. Not even sure if I should bite.

So the Joker = entertaining, therefore a cringe-tastic, 13-year-old's fanfic version of the Joker is also entertaining...k.

Wyatt wouldn't be half as entertaining as any version of the Joker even if he had just as long to develop as the Joker has. It's just not even comparable. Wyatt comes off as even more tryhard than Leto's Joker, and we all know how that turned out.

Some of them are, not all. When done right, you get a masterpiece. When done poorly, you get something with middling reviews (IT Chapter II as an example), or something that completely bombs (like Suicide Squad). Yes, those movies failing had many different factors behind them (Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise is still great in the second movie imo) but people don't think "le chaos" villains are great just for the sake of being "random". It has to be done right ffs, else you get shit like Jared Leto making everyone cringe with his whole "mailing used condoms to my coworkers" shtick.

Wyatt comes off as goofy, and not at all intimidating. I laugh pretty much every time he appears now. The high-pitched edgy tune doesn't help, and the silly flickering lights are WWE basically saying "ooooohhhh, isn't this spoooooky?" It's just so......stupid. Taker, Kane, and Foley didn't come off nearly as tryhard as this.

The biggest, strongest wrestler you'll ever meet.

It's not about being champion. It's about winning matches.

He is (or was, or still could be) the hottest thing going for them. People want to see the hottest thing on top.

You could have Mr. Rodgers Bray keep the Universal Title as prop for the Funhouse and have The Fiend come out with it wrapped around his severed head lantern. There's a bunch of cool things you can do with it.

Not that it matters because HIAC pretty much proved that shit ain't happening.

No, it's ABSOLUTELY about being champion. I GUARANTEE you Asuka has won more matches than Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and Becky Lynch. It doesn't make ONE iota of a difference, because she doesn't win the big, major, championship matches.

Braun Strowman never loses outside of title matches. He's a geek.

Bray Wyatt has been in WWE since 2013 and he's held the title for a grand total of 49 days. Less than Jinder Mahal, and people wonder why some people don't consider him a top star. There's a complete lack of commitment. His issue was never winning matches, he won matches all the time, he would just lose the ones that counted.

I can't believe The Fiend didn't even make it to Halloween under Vince's booking...

This is what people get for underestimating how little Vince knows about pro wrestling. There is no level to where it can't get worse, it's bottomless. Vince could find a guy today with Steve Austin level overness and he would deliberately sabotage it because the guy stuck his hand in the peanut bowl, or he sneezed, or Vince thought his look was ruined because of a small mole.

I generally agree when you put it that way, but what I mean here is in regard to this specific match. The fact that they won't even let the guy beat Rollins even though he's booked over him. You got to win before you can be champ.

Bray wouldn't be a suitable champion in a traditional sense that much is obvious.

But he can take a new twisted take on being the World Champion through gimmick work alone as well as being built as the strongest booked Heel in WWE, It's more or less he's holding something of value through tyranny but Babyfaces want to restore the Championship to it's former glory.

Hell he could easily recreate the Title in his own image to fit the narrative.
