After months of intrigue, Bray Wyatt debuted as “The Fiend” on Monday Night Raw and attacked Finn Balor. Now, Balor vs. Wyatt is the plan for SummerSlam. A lot of people were curious how Bray Wyatt’s new gimmick would work in the ring, but the transition between Wyatt’s two characters is working extremely well heading into SummerSlam.
It’s been reported that Finn Balor will be taking a few months off the road following the PPV. The odds are high that Balor will be putting over Wyatt, but there is the question of where Bray and “The Fiend” go after that since he needs to keep building his characters.
According to a report from Rajah, WWE officials are planning for Balor vs. Wyatt to continue after SummerSlam and Balor’s hiatus. The expectation is Finn Balor will not be bringing back “The Demon” for SummerSlam. Therefore, Wyatt can win at the PPV and WWE can do “The Demon” vs. “The Fiend” later on, most likely at Survivor Series.
The WWE Universe has frequently complained about Bray Wyatt’s booking. He’s taken a lot of big losses, which many fans believes hurts his credibility. “The Fiend” character is extremely interesting, but he needs to win some big matches to keep it going strong.
Obviously, the big problem here is trying to fill two months of time for Wyatt while Finn Balor is on vacation. WWE officials could book him into another feud or they could also do a number of weeks of “Firefly Fun House.” The WWE Universe loved those segments and they brought Bray Wyatt back from the dead. They could give him a lot more time.
