Bray Wyatt has had an interesting career in the WWE so far. He’s wrestled Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose, had a memorable feud against the Shield, faced the Undertaker at WrestleMania 31, and is on his way to finishing a good program against Roman Reigns. Out of all of those partnerships with these WWE stars, he hasn’t won a championship in the WWE.
A lot of WWE fans consider that to be a huge problem with WWE’s Creative team. Wyatt is arguably the best mic worker in the company. The proof is also evident, as he carried a feud against the Undertaker without the Phenom showing up before the match. Wyatt took control of that program on the microphone and never let go.
Bray Wyatt was recently interviewed by Cleveland.com. During his chat, Wyatt talked about his entrance, Chris Jericho being the mystery partner at Night of Champions, and about winning and losing inside the WWE.
“It’s not an entrance in my mind. It’s sharing a feeling. When you walk out, it has its own aura. It’s a once in a lifetime experience where the fireflies come out in an arena.
I was ready for Jericho. He is a familiar foe. He is a legend and icon in his own right. Unfortunately I knew that we were invulnerable right now.
We are millions you know. At the drop of the hat there’s another and another and another. At the end of the day, wins and losses are meaningless. It’s not about one single battle. It’s about the entire journey.”
That’s an interesting perspective from Wyatt’s point of view. When he says winning and losing is meaningless in the WWE, that’s almost insinuating that he doesn’t mind the even-steven booking that’s currently going on. Would Stone Cold Steve Austin or the Rock have gotten over that much if they lost every week or so?
The opinion of WWE programming will always remain subjective, but the thought process behind even-steven booking doesn’t make sense if building talent is the primary goal. Bray Wyatt is in need of a push in the right direction by WWE officials, which isn’t a secret. There are always positive reports about Wyatt’s behavior backstage, and the consistent thoughts of his production thus far.
In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, Wyatt was supposed to have a huge feud going into WrestleMania 32. If Sting didn’t get hurt during his match with Seth Rollins at Night of Champions, then Wyatt was on his way to face Sting at the Grandest Stage of Them All. If that were to actually take place, then his place at the top of WWE’s best would’ve been solidified.
Wyatt is a favorite among WWE legends, as well. In an interview done last year, Mick Foley noted who his favorite WWE superstar was, and Bray Wyatt fit the bill.
“There are a few people. Bray Wyatt reminds me of myself. He’s one of my favorite guys. He’s really a mesmerizing interview, and he makes great use of his physical talents. He definitely makes the most out of his unusual frame. Love to hear him cut a promo.”
How will the WWE make Wyatt relevant on the main event level? That question will always baffle the WWE Universe, as he has yet to win a WWE championship. Putting the belt on Wyatt makes sense, especially if they want him in a high-profile match at WrestleMania 32. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose have a chance to turn heel on one another, which would give the victory to Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family. Hopefully, that’s the victory he needs to propel into the main event scene permanently.
