5 ways to revive Bray Wyatt's WWE career
The former Wyatt Family leader's recent storylines have left a lot to be desired.
When Bray Wyatt debuted on the main roster in 2013, he was one of the most captivating characters WWE had seen in a long time.
Throughout his feuds with Daniel Bryan, The Shield and John Cena, it was quite clear that WWE had huge plans for “The Eater of Worlds” and he was going to be one of the company's top stars for many years to come.
But that was then and this is now, and even the biggest Bray fan would agree that his believability as a character has been severely damaged over the last three years by major losses, particularly at WrestleMania, and underwhelming storylines.
In this article, we put forward five ideas that would help revive the career of the former WWE champion.
#1 Championship reign
Bray Wyatt’s long-awaited WWE Championship reign was, quite frankly, a farce. It lasted 49 days, he only had one successful title defence, he didn’t get a televised rematch, and he was one of five people to hold the title within the space of four months.
His run with the SmackDown Live Tag Team titles a few weeks earlier wasn’t much better. Teaming with Randy Orton, they won the championships from Heath Slater & Rhyno at TLC 2016 but lost them to American Alpha just 23 days later.
For a character who already had a reputation as someone who wins every so often but, when it comes down to it, can’t win the big one, it was typical Bray to lose both titles shortly after winning them.
The general feeling about the former Wyatt Family leader, much like The Undertaker in years gone by, was that he didn’t need titles because his character and storylines were interesting enough that there was no reason for him to chase any gold.
But, let’s be honest, that’s no longer the case, and a lengthy run with a major title, tag title or even a secondary title would go a long way to helping Bray’s career get back on track.
