From the WWE Rumor Mill: Bray Wyatt to be repackaged
What's the story?
It seems like being tossed into the Lake of Reincarnation may signal the change of fortunes for Bray Wyatt. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Wyatt could be repackaged and brought back in a different avatar in the aftermath of the events on Raw.
In case you didn't know...
The main event of this week's Raw was all about the Ultimate Deletion match between Woken Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt at the Hardy Compound.
The ridiculously entertaining match ended when Matt tossed the Eater of Worlds into the Lake of Reincarnation. According to Woken folklore, the men and women thrown into the lake attain 'Woken' status and Wyatt is the latest recipient of the potentially career-changing honor.
Wyatt has been in the doldrums for since last year's WrestleMania and direly needed a revamp to shake off the staleness that his character had accumulated.
Big Ol' Dave Meltzer's speculation paints a promising picture regarding Wyatt's future...
The heart of the matter
On the most recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer stated that Wyatt's repackaging has been coming for a year and that the WWE Universe should expect the former WWE Champion to be back after a few major tweaks are made to his gimmick.
Here's what the veteran journalist had to say about Wyatt's future:(Credit: RingsideNews.com)
"So, I guess he's going to come back different. I think it's been a year of needing repackaging. I don't know what he'll do but hopefully it's something completely different because the other character ran it's course a long time ago."
With WrestleMania 34 already quite stacked, WWE should ideally save the return of Wyatt for after the mega show in New Orleans.
It's still not sure what WWE has in store for Wyatt but we're sure it will infuse some life into his dwindling career.
The WWE Universe has been spared from sitting through the cryptic yet painstakingly boring promos of Wyatt for the time to come.
The change and much-needed break are exactly what Wyatt needed at a time when his former partners -- Braun Strowman, Luke Harper, and Erick Rowan are enjoying major pushes.
However, will the creative changes be enough to transform the Eater of Pins into a force to reckon with upon his return?
