Earlier this month, there were rumours floating around that Big Show would be Brock Lesnar’s next tree to fell.
However recent episodes of Raw and Smackdown have showcased a budding Bray Wyatt and Big Show rivalry. This I believe is the right move.
Pushing Show into the title picture makes zero sense. Despite strong showings in recent weeks, I don’t think he has nearly enough heat to get into a Lesnar situation, let alone Lesnar with the title. Also, it does nothing for Brock.
Luckily, WWE went with a DQ loss for Lesnar at Night of Champions, meaning we will likely see a rubber match between Cena and Lesnar.
And this might do great good for Bray Wyatt. A few weeks ago in Raw’s tag team main event, Wyatt got violently pushed by Show into the corner, and Wyatt responded by laughing maniacally. It was an entertaining spot, which I suspect wasn’t planned and may have led to this budding feud.
The Wyatt train has slowed down post his feud with Chris Jericho. What seemed like a dream run on paper didn’t deliver due to a lack of buildup and a missing story. However, their cage match on Raw was a great step in the recovery of Wyatt.
Now that laugh spot mentioned earlier, and Wyatt’s promo about him being David to Show’s Goliath present the possibility of a working angle. A feud with a veteran Big Show – a healthy, light, sunset-flipping Big Show – might do wonders for Wyatt, as he attempts to take down an opponent who is stronger, taller, heavier, more experienced and now, arguably faster than him. With a focus on Wyatt being outclassed in a physical context, WWE can bring out Wyatt’s crazy nature and daredevil attitude, showcasing him as a uniquely fiendish monster.
Hopefully, third feud’s the charm for a fading Wyatt.
