Let Him In.
The Fiend returned to WWE at WrestleMania 37 and many fans in the WWE Universe are confused as to what exactly is going on.
The Fiend lost in his return match against Randy Orton after one RKO when Alexa Bliss who was sitting on top of a giant Jack In The Box started oozing black liquid. The Fiend distracted allowed for Orton to hit an RKO outta nowhere.
The question now becomes what’s next for this storyline?
Vince McMahon wanted to move forward from the Alexa Bliss/Fiend/Orton storyline and focus more on Bliss and the Fiend. Brat Wyatt is creatively helping with this strange storyline and Vince McMahon surprisingly has given Bray Wyatt creative freedom with his character and story’s.
The story moving forward is that Alexa Bliss controls The Fiend similar to Undertaker’s Urn and a small rivalry if you will begin brooding between Wyatt and Bliss.
Bray Wyatt being cryptic as ever posted this (see below) on his official Twitter account on Monday Afternoon, that picture is of The Story of Samson and Delilah in the Bible.
You see The mighty Samson (Shimshon, in Hebrew) was a judge who led and rescued the people of Israel from Philistine oppression. A nazarite from birth, Samson was endowed by G‑d with herculean strength, which he used to fight the Philistines who were occupying the Land of Israel. Samson led the people for 20 years until he was betrayed by his wife, Delilah, and captured by the Philistines. Blinded and mocked by his captors, Samson’s life ended when he knocked down the pillars supporting the building he had been taken to, killing himself and the thousands of Philistines inside. This will be the moral of The Fiend and Alexa Bliss story.
One of the more popular conspiracy theories (there’s a few) backstage in the WWE locker room is that Bo Dallas will somehow get involved in this storyline and many talents backstage suspect that Bo Dallas was indeed “The Burnt Fiend. Alex Bliss will then have control of two un-holy characters that will have to fight for her love and admiration.
This has been pitched but Vince McMahon does not think it has any ratings or monetary value. He has the final call on all storylines and character development.
This will not be a short storyline rather a long drawn out program that will take months to conclude. Vince McMahon considers Bray Wyatt a genius and loves The Fiend character and at some point WWE would like to have The Fiend and Alexa Bliss become WWE Champion and WWE Women’s Champion simultaneously.
The Fiend character is one of WWE’s top merchandise sellers for quite some time now that is bringing millions of dollars in merchandise revenue. As long as their is a demand for a character Mr. McMahon will give it to the audience.
The lore of The Wyatt family, The Fiend and Sister Abigail is deep needless to say and is a story WWE is looking to continue to tell for years to come.
