WWE Rumor Roundup: #30 Royal Rumble entrant, Major twist with The Fiend story, Return update for 7-time World Champion (January 8, 2020)
#4 Interesting unplanned twist in The Fiend's story
What started out as speculation from fans has now become a key aspect of the on-going mythical story of The Fiend. I am talking about the conspiracy theory regarding Superstars undergoing a major change in their character after facing Bray Wyatt.
Both, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor turned heel after losing to Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan chopped off his hair and returned to his 'American Dragon' look, and now even The Miz is back to being a heel.
Sportskeeda's Tom Colohue explained that this aspect was not planned by WWE in advance:
“It started off pure coincidence but when it comes to this Miz heel turn, I think maybe the change was leaning towards [John] Morrison and it was planned, and you see several elements building to it.
“But it [Miz’s heel turn] was also a little bit sudden, so I think they’re leaning into what is happening with Bray Wyatt, as they did with KofiMania and like they did with the main event of WrestleMania . They saw the way the wind was blowing and they leaned into it.”Published 08 Jan 2020, 23:30 IST
