I dont necessarily think he needs a group - it wouldnt be the worst thing if he did (perhaps he could do the Wade Barrett role, but tweaked, in terms of leading a group of NXTers).

I'd prefer him to stay on his own and be more badass, like stone cold sort of attitude, and work his way back through the IC or US title picture and spend a while regaining his momentum he had way back.

I like his feud with Matt Hardy, but I am mostly with #Heel on this one. I would love to at least see him go after the Intercontinental or U.S. belts as opposed to leading another group. I don't want him to be stuck in the "he needs a group to succeed" typecast, like the aforementioned Wade Barrett. 

I don't mind his current "creepy" persona.

I think WWE made a mistake not putting the main belt on him when he was at his best and since then hes really just gone one way - downhill.

There is absolutely no doubt that, with all the build and rise Bray Wyatt had from late 2013 to early 2017, they fucked up his first World Title reign royally. It seems they only made Wyatt win the belt at last's year's Elimination Chamber just to lose to Orton in their blow off match and thus have a short reign. And then Orton himself didn't even have a long reign and quickly dropped it to Mahal. 

I have always felt that someone the caliber of Wyatt that his first World Title reign should have been more special and for sure longer. He should have at least been the guy walking out of WrestleMania as Champ and then had a good run. 

And yes I know that The Undertaker's first World Title run back in 1991 was only a week before he quickly lost back to Hulk Hogan; but Taker was so dominant both before and since that he could take a hot potatoed reign and not fall off the rafters. WWE dropped the ball with Wyatt in 2017.

Yeah considering Wyatt survived a gruelling Elimination Chamber match and entered Wrestlemania as World champion to defend against the Royal Rumble winner it was a completely forgettable reign. His feud with Orton was dull despite all the theatrics, it didn’t deliver in the ring, the matches were mediocre. Worst of all Wyatt’s title reign was completely transitional, as mentioned he did seem to win it just to then drop the belt to Orton as Wyatt was then switched to Raw where he has since plummeted down the card.

I don’t mind Bray’s creepy persona but they seem to be heading in a almost comical direction with it lately. If he stays heel he needs to go really dark with a persona that scares children, or he turns babyface and goes more in a different direction. I’ve always said I think Bray Wyatt merchandise could be a goldmine and a face turn is the way forward.

Exactly; and well put. His first title reign should have been more than transitional. The WrestleMania match itself with Orton wasn't all that horrible, and would have been fine for a WrestleMania mid card match. The problem is that a WrestleMania match for the "most prestigious prize in the industry" or whatever they call it should be a showstealer that exceeds expectations. I would have to say that it was lackluster in this regard (although there have been much worse, see also Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus.) 

Also, I wasn't buying into the images of the worms and maggots in the middle of the title match neither.

Ooooh yes, can you imagine if they tap into the cell phone market in any way with Bray Wyatt licenced "firefly" merchandise?
