It’s a long time to be a champion. Over the last eight months or so, there has been almost no one in WWE on Bray Wyatt’s level. The Fiend has given Wyatt a completely new dimension to his character and it has garnered him a lot of success, including the second World Title reign of his career. It seems like a reign which could go on for a very, very long time and as it turns out, that might be what we are getting.
Wyatt won the Universal Title from Seth Rollins in October at Crown Jewel, surviving everything Rollins threw at him to become the new champion with the Mandible Claw. This came in the same month as Wyatt was an unstoppable monster inside the Cell against Rollins as well. The two matches would suggest that it is going to take a lot to get the title off of Wyatt, and that may be the case for a very long time.
According to Wrestlingnews.co, the current plans for Wyatt would likely see him holding the title all the way until WrestleMania 36 in April, if not even longer. Wyatt is scheduled to be in one of the featured matches on the show, though there is currently no plan for his opponent. WWE is currently looking for the right opponent for him, though a recent report suggests that Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are options.
This guy is just creepy. Check out some of Wyatt’s antics:
Opinion: I would certainly think that Wyatt has earned something like this. At the end of the day, one of the most effective ways to build up a mega face is to have them beat a truly monster heel. How do you make a monster heel? By having them beat everyone in their path, which is what Wyatt is doing. After the debacle of the Cell match, something had to be done to fix Wyatt up and that seems to be what they are doing now.
Who do you see facing Wyatt at WrestleMania? When will he lose the title? Let us know in the comments below.
