Bray Wyatt Hints That He’ll Be The Next Challenger For The WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Dean Ambrose is the current No. 1 contender for AJ Styles’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but a new challenger could emerge soon. Give Me Sport is reporting that Bray Wyatt will challenge for the blue brand’s main prize once the Dean vs. AJ feud ends.

During a recent interview with the Mirror, Bray hinted that he’ll be AJ’s next challenger.

“[AJ Styles] is impressive. That is true, no one can deny that. But I fear no man, I only fear God and AJ is no God. My time is coming.”

Despite being one of the most popular wrestlers on the entire roster, Wyatt has been kept out of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture for the majority of his career. But, the brand split promised to deliver new opportunities to deserving superstars, and Bray is certainly deserving of a WWE title match.

Currently, Bray is back together with Luke Harper, and they’re involved in a tag team feud with the odd pairing of Randy Orton and Kane. But, while they’re currently feuding, three of the four men — Bray Wyatt, Kane, and Randy Orton — will likely be partners at next month’s Survivor Series show, as WWE is planning a Raw vs. SmackDown elimination tag team match.

What will the two teams look like? Well, the Raw team will likely be Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Rusev, while the SmackDown team will probably be Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Kane. Of course, it’s no guarantee that Kane will be the fifth man, as John Cena is being advertised for the show, so they could make him the fifth man on the blue team.

As of right now, it doesn’t look like the Survivor Series show will have a championship match. In fact, it’s looking like the only one-on-one match on the show will be Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar. So, Bray Wyatt probably won’t challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship until the next SmackDown pay-per-view, which will be the TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs event on December 4.

Wyatt being in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture isn’t the only big thing that’s in his future, as it’s been reported that WWE is considering putting him in the ring with Triple H at WrestleMania 33. However, a match with Triple H at WWE’s biggest show of the year doesn’t seem likely, simply because WWE has spent the last couple of months building up a Seth Rollins vs. Triple H match that will probably happen in Orlando next spring.

If Wyatt had it his way, he’d wrestle The Rock at WrestleMania 33. A match between the two was teased back at WrestleMania 32, and Wyatt challenged “The People’s Champ” to a match at next year’s big event on ESPN’s SportsCenter just a couple of weeks after their showdown at AT&T Stadium.

“The Rock is the biggest star in the world period. It was a moment for me as well, especially because I was walking out and seeing 100,000 fireflies, and that was something of beauty. Being out there with The Rock… It was cool, I guess I would say, but I would also have to admit that we have unfinished business, and if he’s listening or watching, Rock, I would love to finish it at WrestleMania 33.”

Even if he doesn’t end up wrestling The Rock in Orlando next year, there’s a good chance that he’ll end up winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the first time before then, so he’ll still have a big match at WrestleMania, even if it’s not against a guy who’s arguably the biggest superstar in WWE history.
