Sadly another Cena casualty, look for Rusev to be next.
Bray Wyatt lost momentum by losing the feud with Cena but he was still sufficiently over that he could have been rebuilt easily enough, however rather than do that WWE put him in a rubbish feud with the fading Chris Jericho which Bray did emerge from as the victor but not in the convincing fashion that was needed, worse still Wyatt was fed to Cena to help rehabilitate Cena after his squash loss to Brock Lesnar, in the match Wyatt was made to look a complete jobber and he and Harper and Rowan were not allowed anything other than to have to sell like crazy for Cena as he dominated them all.

Since all this I've noticed Bray's reaction has not been what it was, more of a mixed fan response than the strong headliner standard reactions he had been getting.

It's not too late to save Bray Wyatt but he will need some heavy rebuilding, sadly it seems they are going to have him tread water in the mid-card for a while feuding with guys like Sheamus and Ziggler.

Well I didn't see all of last week's show because I was driving, and this week because the cable went out half way in, and for as best as I can remember before that I haven't seen Wyatt on Raw since his cage match with Jericho. That means it's been several weeks since I've seen him on TV at all.
He IS still around right?

Quote From Jim Ross Website

Something tells me that the re-start of the Bray Wyatt promotion might make Wyatt more heelish than before he went on a strangely timed sabbatical. I still like Wyatt as a character 'face but if he can be made a heel then more power to him as WWE is in need of top level main eventers of all types.


He's definately been more heelish since his return, which is definately a good thing.

He's not been pandering to the fans as much and that was making him hard to believe as an heel.

On his own and booked as more nasty only thinking of himself is the way forward.

I'm a HUGE Bray Wyatt mark, but I'll admit ever since his loss to Cena at WWE Payback -which REALLY wasn't needed- he's been all over the place. He looked weak as hell at Money in the Bank, he had an "ok" feud with Jericho, which culminated in a very good steel-cage match on the "Season Premiere" of RAW, and then jobbed here and there before disappearing and returning to have an "ok" feud with Dean Ambrose, which had some good matches, such as the matches at TLC, Miracle On 34th Street-Fight on RAW and the Ambulance Match on another RAW which ended it all, but I feel he's FALLEN FAR! He seems to be on the rise again little by little and with rumors he may face Undertaker at Wrestlemania; I have a feeling Wyatt MAY overcome the odds of a Cena burial and be the first to say, "I survived the golden shovel and now I'm top of the world, again! You can't touch me!". Not many have been able to say that...

I don't understand blaming it on Cena when it was WWE who done the most damage by taking Rowan & Harper away from him.

A cult leader gimmick, yet he has no followers.

I blame Cena's character, because he did not need that win at Payback, especially because he symbolically BURIED Wyatt.

Also, it hasn't really done harm, because they were getting in the way quite a lot and making him look weak. People got tired of them beating down Wyatt's opponents, and now he can do his own beating. I miss the Wyatt Family, but... oh well...

I guess they're setting him for "future followers" so to speak.

I think its a mixture of both, his losses to Cena didn't exactly help his momentum, WWE should have had Wyatt win the rubber match, Cena got the victory at Wrestlemania and at this point it cant do John Cena any harm to suffer a few losses to top talent.
Wyatt then got put in a boring feud with the over the hill Chris Jericho which stalled Bray even further and for some bizarre reason they handed the first win of the feud to Jericho, a part-time middle aged veteran who is barely a enhancement talent these days.
 
Wyatt does need his followers, its all part of his gimmick, he isn't so effective alone. WWE did restore his momentum a bit with wins over Ambrose and Daniel Bryan recently but he is still not back to where he was before the John Cena feud. I don't get why they took Harper and Rowan away from him, Harper is doing ok but is not likely to rise above mid-card and could still be where he is as part of the Wyatt Family, Rowan is settling into a low-card semi-comedy jobber spot. The best thing WWE could do is put the Family back together.

His losses to Cena DEFINITELY hurt him as-well as his pathetic win at Extreme Rules, which REALLY hurt him and the reason they took the family away is 'cos the audience grew tired of Wyatt and believed he was just a chickensh*t. I mean he claims to this "godly" cult leader, and then he loses a majority of his matches after saying a bunch of BIG things. That hurt him, and it's the main reason now why a lot of people say he's "boring" 'cos his losses to Cena didn't make him a believable "threat".

We know a lot of the audience are either dopey or smarks, so the smarks will be like, "Oh, he sucks" and the dopey casual ones will be like, "Cena kicked his butt!". In the end, the only impression of him is he's a charismatic guy who talks out of his a** and loses most of his matches and has to get wins over an OLD guy and a guy who's been on a seemingly endless losing streak! It does nothing for him! His win against Daniel Bryan was the ONLY thing that helped, but didn't that involve interference from Kane? Again, this makes him look like a chickensh*t who can't "fight his own fights". I know most heels tend to be chickensh*ts but Wyatt's character just doesn't suit that and it's why the fans are turning on him. Thankfully he still has people who believe in him, so he's not "too far gone" yet.

Still; I am a fan of Bray Wyatt and I won't give up until he's jobbing on Superstars... THEN I'll give up.

what has hurt him more now is that his program with Ambrose went from headlining a PPV, to be a television feud done within a few weeks.
 
sorry, Cena may have halted his momentum, but he did have an amazing comeback to kickstart the feud with Ambrose.  the fact he won the feud is lost on people because it very quickly dropped down the WWE pecking order.  why would you give a shit about a feud like that when it's being given away on free tv, and when Ambrose was on the very next set of programming after losing the Ambulance match?
 
Wyatt doesn't need the family bought back together, even as loose affiliations.  the direction they have gone with in Harper is working, but the way they have taken Rowen was perplexing.  they didn't seem to have a plan for him, as he looked like he was going to be a creepy stalker character, now he "DON'T LIKE BULLIES!!!!!", and yet, weirdly, both Harper and Rowan are probably above Wyatt on the WWE roster right now, because too much has happened to Wyatt in the last 12 months for him to keep being built up as a massive threat, then being made to look unimportant.

It's sad... I hope he can recover from all of this, tbh.
