As revealed on Raw during night two of the WWE Draft, the red brand ‘Let Him In’ – Raw decided to pick “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt as its number one draft pick.
This should mean that WWE has big plans for the former Universal Champion. However, this is WWE we are talking about, and the company doesn’t really have “big plans” for anyone until the last minute…
However, with The Fiend and his accomplice Alexa Bliss both over on Raw, we are sure to be treated to fresh feuds. This should hopefully increase Raw’s quality as, pre-Draft, Monday nights were a bore to sit through.
Let’s discuss six potential feuds for “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt on Raw.
Isn’t this a mouth-watering prospect?
Keith Lee has been in limbo since debuting on the main roster on the Raw after SummerSlam. Having great matches with Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre but pathetic endings with no contests and disqualifications alike.
Nothing has changed after that as he is still not picking up any wins in this rivalry with Braun Strowman. WWE just doesn’t know how to book a man as talented as Keith Lee.
He’s being put in these mega-blockbuster feuds but WWE isn’t capitalising on his ‘limitless’ (pun clearly intended) potential. This could all change in a feud with The Fiend.
Both are big meaty guys, and both can cut unique and mind-blowing promos. The war of words would be unimaginable between these two!
The best part about this is that either man could strike the victory. It would be a special treat to the fans after a horrible year for the world.
Ever since The Fiend was born, the uniqueness of his rivalries compared to others is that he challenges his former sins. He is out seeking vengeance for who hurt him in the past. One of Wyatt’s biggest feuds was against former ally Randy Orton.
Currently, Orton is in a long, never-ending rivalry with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. This will hopefully culminate at Hell in a Cell in their cell match for the title.
If it does – and it surely should – perhaps we could see The Fiend attack Orton, reigniting their feud on the red brand.
Previously, Orton viciously left Wyatt after winning the Royal Rumble back in 2017. Once Wyatt won his first WWE World Championship at Elimination Chamber the following month, Orton betrayed him, burning down his house in the process.
This led to a match at WrestleMania which had too much sperm snake entrance, holograms and maggots and too little wrestling. Orton won the title here adding to the many reasons why The Fiend had to rise from the ashes.
Now that they are both on the same brand once again, a rivalry would be fun, and could be a reason for an even darker or babyface turn for Orton after losing to Wyatt.
As much as I love Samoa Joe commentating on the three-hour show, his talent in the ring is undoubtedly missed. An exciting way to bring him back to in-ring competition would be to have him interrupt a Firefly Fun House promo challenging Wyatt to a huge brawl!
The acting and expressions of both man and Fiend would totally elevate this rivalry from great to insane! Furthermore, both men can convey a dark, gritty persona which should excite the adult audience while sending chills down the spines of the younger fans.
Please give me this as soon as possible, WWE!
