That’s some internal criticism. As powerful and successful as it may be, WWE is certainly not without its critics. There are a lot of people who do not like various aspects of things that WWE presents to their fans and with the internet as powerful as it has ever been, those fans can make their opinions heard in a big way. However, they aren’t the only people who can do so.
Earlier this week at Super ShowDown, Goldberg defeated the Fiend to become the new Universal Champion. This was a rather polarizing result, as fans on both sides were complaining about the title change. Some felt that Goldberg was a better option as the Fiend was not a good character while others said that Goldberg was too old to be champion and was another part time wrestler getting the title. One person made his opinion clear though and he is rather close to the situation.
On Friday, a fan sent out a tweet during SmackDown, complaining about Miz and John Morrison losing a match the day after they won the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, asking if WWE was trying to kill their characters. Later that night, Bray Wyatt responded, saying that yes they were. Wyatt has been known to say some out of character things on Twitter before.
You booked your brand new tag champs to lose clean in a non-title match?
Are they trying to completely destroy their characters?#SmackDownLIVE

Wyatt had a busy Friday. Check out what he did to close this week’s SmackDown:
Opinion: I’m not sure if Wyatt is being serious or sarcastic here, but neither one would surprise me. What happened at Super ShowDown didn’t cripple the Fiend but it felt rather out of place after everything that he had survived in the previous months. It’s quite the shift and I could see it being insulting that he was just keeping the title warm until a bigger name could hold it for five weeks and drop it in a hurry. Maybe Wyatt is cool with it though and if so then that’s what matters, but I could understand not being happy.
Do you agree with what Wyatt said? What is next for him after WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
