Bray Wyatt is heading into WrestleMania as WWE Champion.
Hold on. That's so crazy, I'm going to type it again just to see if it makes my laptop burst into flames.
Bray Wyatt is heading into WrestleMania as WWE Champion
I hope this is covered by Apple Care.
When you consider where Bray Wyatt was last year at this time, without a program at 'Mania 32, and being called a fatty by The Rock in front of 80,000 people, this is amazing
It's widely assumed that he will lose the championship to Orton, but remember, he does have a few guys he can call on for backup. Luke Harper might be a lost cause at this point. He went and changed into a clean undershirt and everything--that train has sailed.
But Erick Rowan is healthy and hanging around backstage, when he's not burying stuff in unmarked graves and whatnot. Braun Strowman doesn't have any plans for WrestleMania (for some reason), so maybe there could be a reunion there, too.
Wyatt says he doesn't need their help, though, and even if he did, he doesn't know if they'd even be willing.
“There is a lot of damage and many burnt bridges right now,” Wyatt told Sports Illustrated. “The Wyatt Family will always exist in one form or fashion, whether or not the four or us are ever back together again. It’s one thing to look at us on television, but when you’re standing next to all of us together, it’s almost too dominant of a presence. You can’t hack away at us—we’re four giants. As much as I would like to be reunited with my brothers, I don’t really need them right now, but it’s always a possibility.”
However, there is one more guy who might be available to be Bray's wingman on Sunday.
HIS BROTHER BO DALLAS.
By the way, not only is Bray open to this happening, he would love to form an alliance with his baby brother, of whom he has a very lofty opinion..
“Bo Dallas is, quite possibly, the most talented wrestler on either roster,” said Wyatt. “He is the most underrated superstar of all time, in my opinion. He has so much to give. At some point, I would love to form an alliance with him because I know who and what he really is. Whether people want to look at him like that, well, then I’ll show you. It’s very, very possible.”
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN.
So maybe he'd be amenable to a move to SmackDown.
Then he and Bray could form a new Wyatt Family, and go after the Tag Team titles--since Bray's probably not sniffing the top strap again any time soon.
Of course, eventually--hopefully not for at least a year or two, after a very good slow build--we will get a breakup and a blood feud and then we can get stuff like THIS:
I can't wait.
