Bray Wyatt, has always been considered to be one of the most underutilised talents in WWE. Despite losing all the time, the fans have a burning desire to see The Eater Of Worlds reach the top of the WWE mountain. Furthermore, although he is a heel, he still gets support from the fans, perhaps, due to his unique character which stands out.
He has been compared to The Undertaker before, and in his interview with The Mirror, he spoke about his match with Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31, and what The Phenom brings to the table.
“I think just the aura he brings, man, it's never duplicated. I have been in there with some real studs like The Rock [at WrestleMania 32 this year] who has that kind of aura, John Cena has his own aura, but The Undertaker, there is no duplicating that. It's just a feeling that he gives off man, which is just 'wow', it's just real man, and getting ready to square off with him, watching him walk down, I've never felt so alive. I couldn't wait for that bell to ring.”
The Eater Of Worlds is currently on SmackDown Live, involved in a program with Randy Orton and Kane. He defeated Randy Orton in the main event of No Mercy, thanks to an assist from the returning Luke Harper.
Wyatt and Harper were in a feud with Orton and Kane, but in this past week’s episode of Smackdown Live, Orton turned on Kane and hit him with an RKO. This allowed Bray Wyatt to pin The Big Red Machine in their No Disqualification match.
Orton said, “If you can’t beat em’, join em’”, but it is not sure as of yet, whether it is a full-fledged heel turn. He did a similar story in 2014-15, where he got taken out by Seth Rollins, who represented The Authority and returned, to join the Authority once more, only to turn on them.
It is possible that he may turn on Wyatt to further their storyline. Not to mention, Smackdown Live needs some top babyfaces.
After Wrestlemania 32, they were clearly going in the direction of turning Bray Wyatt into a babyface. Unfortunately, he got injured within a few weeks, and the angle where The Wyatts would take on The League Of Nations was scrapped.
It was a shame because Wyatt started getting excellent reactions from the fans. He is one of those wrestlers who fans want to get behind. WWE Hall Of Famers Stone Cold and Jim Ross have agreed that Bray Wyatt is “a babyface waiting to happen”.
The fact that fans still hope he gets a huge push some day says it all. He is surely one of those wrestlers who can gain heat with the crowd in a few months, and be ready to go to the main event level. He is on Smackdown Live, the land of opportunity after all, so it may only be a matter of time before we see The Eater Of Worlds in the main event scene.
