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.

He will be a jobber soon and fed to a returning Demon Balor
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.

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.

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!

The problem is with the lack of character development overall there are not enough wrestlers to feed to The Fiend to make things interesting.

I know. I'm still on Cloud 9 from last night lol. That shit was so awesome. The whole hurt and heal shit is exactly how I wanted them to do it too. Bray fighting with himself during the match showing that the fiend is 'controlling' him. They literally are doing the character perfect. Go watch the entrance again the way he sinks down during the hurt part of the music and pops out for the heal was brilliant. He should be a main champion by Survivor Series. Let him dominate until Mania and let the babyface inevitably take him down. Or have him dominate and finally capture the title at Mania. This is the best character they've had in god knows how long. I am so scared they're going to fuck this up.

Strowman is not any higher on the card than Finn, lol. It would mean more to beat him in the sense that he's big, though. My worry with that is that they'd have him struggle too much to beat Braun. He should not struggle with any opponent, until he makes his way to either Brock or Seth, where you can have a competitive match, but he must win.

And I would agree that he should win the title and go until Mania, if it weren't for the fact that he's 0-3 at WrestleMania. He needs a win at WrestleMania. Let him hold the title until around SummerSlam, maybe MITB if you just really have to beat him but not WrestleMania.

They need to keep Braun and The Fiend away from each other. That could be a big time title match down the road but for now. If anything have Braun be the guy who finally takes down The Fiend at Mania.

this is so much better then wyatts family gimmick. I feel like this one can actually stay. That head lantern was dope as fuck. I honestly did not see wyatt wrestling with the mask on. Thats a cool touch.

So long as they don't turn him into a clown show as they have done previously and keep him booked strong, I'm happy with it. I love the way Bray wrestles and he has a ton of charisma. Putting him over the smiley twink was a good idea.

Roster is weak as shit right now man. I don't want him anywhere near Ricochet right now because I know those idiots love him. I also don't want him near AJ as I don't want him going for a B-title. That doesn't leave many credible faces.

Didn't I JUST say no losing at WrestleMania? He's lost ALL of his WrestleMania matches. This is a hot character. He needs to win.

I'm fine with Strowman being the guy to beat him when he does lose the title, but not at WrestleMania. He can hold the title a few extra months, and honestly, Strowman has lost so much credibility, he needs the build up to get back to that level of overness anyway.

Either way, there ain't gonna be a fucking title match because Seth is gonna be the Universal champion for 2 years.

it was great and all but I still don't like the mask... looks something taken out from the purge movie.
It's a botched concept from DC's New 52 reboot of Joker, in which he has another villain cut his face off and then sew it back on.

I don't want him near Ricochet either, but if you're more scared of Ricochet beating him than Strowman, you need your head examined. Ricochet's a geek. Paul Heyman might love him but Vince sure as hell doesn't, and guess who books the show.

So do you put the rocket on and give him Rollins right away? I think he needs one more dominant feud before hand. Just not sure who the right person would be unless someone like Cena came back and put him over. (my optimism is showing again lmao this would never happen)
