The Wyatt Family has been a big part of WWE since their arrival in 2013 to the main roster. They have added a member since then in Braun Strowman, and they have split up at one point. However, they never seemed to leave the minds of the WWE fans as everyone knew that once they got back together, something big could most certainly happen in the WWE.
Sadly, nothing major has happened just yet but it looks like those moments could come very soon. WWE teased an angle of sorts regarding the Wyatt Family on WWE.com recently, saying….
“After dominating the ECW Originals in a Tables Match at WWE TLC, The Wyatt Family brought the fight to The Dudley Boyz, Rhyno and Tommy Dreamer in ECW’s birthplace of Philadelphia on Raw, defeating the hardcore veterans in an Extreme Rules Match that brought the house down in the City of Brotherly Love.
But what’s next for Bray Wyatt and his dark disciples? On SmackDown, The Eater of Worlds proclaimed, “We are not of this world. We do not obey your rules; we do not conform to your society. Sleep with one eye open, and know that we are everywhere. And we can never stop.”
Indeed, The Wyatt Family won’t be stopped on Raw.”
The Wyatt Family has been ready for a big push to the top of the roost for some time, but WWE never truly let them get there. They had them go over The Shield on numerous occasions to prove that The Shield was behind them as far as the best faction in WWE was concerned. However, WWE still gave more attention to The Shield and even had them made through beating the infamous Evolution faction.
It seemed that WWE would always make The Wyatts look good, but the meaning of the group seemed to always be about getting Bray Wyatt into a major position, not the entire family. Now it does appear that the entire Family is going to get the move up. There have been rumors of Bray Wyatt turning babyface this year, but the plans kept being held off due to the need for heels. However, with a babyface turn, there does come some amenities in that the group itself gets more attention.
Due to WWE having so many heels at this point, it makes sense to turn someone sooner rather than later. There appears to be a plan to turn the family with Bray, as the rumor going around is that WWE is going to pit the Wyatt Family against the League of Nations. Sheamus is owed a rematch with Roman Reigns, which could take place at The Royal Rumble PPV. There he would most likely lose and then Reigns would go into WrestleMania 32 as champion while Sheamus re-joins his nations group to potentially take on The Wyatt Family at the show of shows.
The issue with some of this is that this removes several people from use at the event. They remove Sheamus, King Barrett, Alberto Del Rio, and Rusev… some of whom could be used as help for mid-card matches. This doesn’t even mention Bray Wyatt. There is a thought that WWE might debut some NXT stars by the Rumble, which might help the Mania card a bit but this does mean that it will occur.
While there has been a plan to turn the Wyatt’s face for a while, this does not seem like the right time to do it due to the need at WrestleMania for mid-card matches. While Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, and other legends could be back by the event….WWE is without Cesaro, Seth Rollins, and Randy Orton. All of which would be clearly used in a big match at the event. There is a chance Daniel Bryan makes his way back in 2016, but will he do so by WrestleMania? Even if, that is one person who runs as a babyface.
We will have to see where WWE leans in their potential storyline with Bray Wyatt and his Family on WWE RAW, but will that direction be toward The League of Nations? There is a chance, if nothing else.
