Smack down seemed to be a show full of missing the right finishes and was pretty Shit.

The Wyatt's do need the titles back because the perfect implosion to the family would be happening whilst they are champs

I'm ready for an end to the Wyatt Family, and Wyatt to be a singles guy. Orton as a Wyatt family member just seems like a desperate ploy for ratings and to make people care about the stable. I like Wyatt, but I've even completely lost interest in him these days.

Yeah I'm ready for a Bray Wyatt babyface turn and a end to the family, position Orton as a top singles heel and give Luke Harper a singles run in the mid-card.

Bray has all the makings of a top face, he's a marketing dream and the switch of roles may allow him to evolve his promo style into something a bit easier to understand rather than his usual gibberish, going forward I could see him becoming something in a similar mold to The Undertaker and Mankind.

I get the feeling too. However they still have options overall with how this gets played out. They can just as easily have Wyatt turn on both of them, as they could have Harper and a returning Rowan take out both Bray and Randy turning both of them face. I think it's too easy and predictable for it to be Randy to turn, so i'm hoping that doesn't happen without Bray turning with him.

literally, the only two times I've been interested in this run of the stable was when Bray and Randy won the titles, and when they faced off against Stroman expecting him to help them. maybe the return of Harper, but that's it.

it seems to have been an appeasement to Orton; letting him be a heel, but not a monster heel who was after the main title. I'd rather see Bray going solo, but at the same time, his last solo run wasn't brilliant.

I think the major appeal to Wyatt has been his merging the gimmicks of Undertaker with that of Jake Roberts, and that's where he needs to stay. Going forward as a babyface is doable, but he needs to study up on his Jake Roberts babyface promos so he can stay interesting, because Undertaker relied soley on his gimmick as the deadman early in his career, and later as his status as a legend, the only time he really got over as a babyface on his own without relying on any crutch was when he reinvented himself as the American Badass.

Wyatt is about to embark on his sophomore run through the company, having done the Wyatt Family gimmick for years now and meeting with a fair amount of success. If he's going to elevate himself and now just fade into obscurity he's going to have to be very careful, and Roberts' babyface work in the late 80's and early 90's is something not many people have ever seen, let alone remember, but it was really quite good and if Wyatt draws from that and mixes it with the Undertaker-ish aspects of his character it might just keep him going while not having to go too far into reinventing himself as a babyface.

I think that Wyatt vs Orton at Wrestlemania 33 could be a sleeper match of the night. I'm very honestly looking forward to it. But I do wish they had held off on teasing the break up so soon. It was like "Okay, you've won the belts. Now we've gotta start teasing dissention" when it would have been much more efective to wait until after the Rumble. But oh well.

If they do plan to turn Bray babyface he should eliminate a squabling Randall and Harper with a double clothesline at the Royal Rumble.

Randall should be kept in his favoured heel position, as should Harper who would be as bad as Rowan as a babyface.

Bray in his solo segment made me not want to miss what might happen next week.

I think we'll see one of them inadvertently eliminating Bray, leading to a Bray vs Eliminator match at Elimination Chamber.

This is a very slow burning angle with the pay off surely being a Bray vs Randy match. I reckon more tension will be seen at the Royal Rumble and then even more at the Elimination Chamber with the official split happening just before Wrestlemania.

As I've said before I hope the outcome of this is a Bray Wyatt babyface turn. He's run out of steam as a heel and I think his character has potential to be far more effective as a face and a merchandise goldmine for WWE.

Orton meanwhile is a natural heel, this applies off-screen as well as proven recently with how he responded to a fan who pestered him for a autograph while Orton was working out in a gym. Randy reminds me a lot of Brock Lesnar in that he doesn't have a great deal of time for the fans or people in general which makes both of them a much better fit as a heel.
