Last night on Monday Night Raw, Bray Wyatt was seen backstage cutting one of his famous promos. His delivery works perfectly with the character Wyatt portrays. He’s a deranged psychopath that salivates over destruction and chaos. The Inquisitr reported a few days ago that Wyatt is set for a feud with the Undertaker. That promo Wyatt cut last night insinuated that he is after the Deadman.
The word-choice Wyatt used made it seem fairly obvious that he is after the Undertaker. One question is on the minds of WWE fans everywhere, and that is why Taker would wrestle Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 31. While that is unknown right now, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has a good idea for when Undertaker will make his WWE return.
“The Undertaker’s return to the WWE is probable for the Raw that takes place the night after the Fast Lane show. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, industry insider Dave Meltzer said “I would think they don’t pull the trigger until the day after Fast Lane, I’m guessing that’s when The Undertaker would show up.”
Meltzer confirmed that as of right now the plan is still for The Undertaker versus Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 31. There had been rumors of that angle starting on last night’s Raw, but in the end WWE just went with another teasing Wyatt promo.
Remember, the difference between Fast Lane and WrestleMania 31 is longer than the break between normal pay-per-views. WWE will most-likely build up Wyatt into a bigger monster than he already is, then “pull the trigger,” like Meltzer said.
Undertaker lost at WrestleMania 30 to Brock Lesnar. Lesnar and Heyman took that momentum and won the WWE World Heavyweight championship. Lesnar has yet to lose that belt, and probably won’t until WrestleMania 31 against Roman Reigns. Another problem the WWE Universe picked out is that Taker isn’t undefeated at WrestleMania anymore.
If WWE goes through with this match, they would have had Bray Wyatt lose to John Cena and the Undertaker back-to-back. Is that helpful to his career? The flip side of that argument is the effect this match will have on Undertaker’s career. If he loses at a second-consecutive WrestleMania, where does his legacy stand?
Wyatt looked very strong at the Royal Rumble, so a loss to the Deadman will only detriment his push, right? It’s all subjective, but this case with Wyatt is very delicate. They cannot continue to have him lose at WrestleMania, because then he wouldn’t be seen as legitimate. These next two months are vital for Wyatt’s career, as well as the Phenom’s. As WWE fans, let’s hope they make the right decisions.
