The Fiend’s influence on WWE was showing signs of waning before joining up with Alexa Bliss on SmackDown in an interesting angle over the past few weeks. With both Superstars moving across to Raw in the Draft we have to see their alliance grow as we enter 2021. One of the most unique flavours that Bray Wyatt has brought to his latest incarnation is the ability to alter the character of his opponents.
We’ve seen Daniel Bryan resurrect the Yes! Movement (and shave his head), and Braun Strowman return to the vicious monster that tipped over an ambulance (and shave his head). Seth Rollins has yet to go bald himself but his Monday Night Messiah gimmick might be his best since The Shield. Let’s not forget The Fiend’s first opponent, Finn Bálor, who took time away after his loss at SummerSlam 2019 and popped up in NXT, currently ruling as their top champion.
So, who needs the character shift (or total reboot) that an encounter with The Fiend would bring? What does that change look like? Once Wyatt and Bliss are through with Andrade and Zelina Vega, these Superstars should start checking under their beds at night.
