• Possible WrestleMania 36 Opponent For The Fiend
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt might go on to face “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns or “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36 next year.
Below is what Meltzer said:
“Brock is stuck with Paul [Heyman] and because of Brock, Paul and Vince [McMahon] it is always planned out in advance. We probably should be seeing hints of whatever [Lesnar’s direction] is pretty soon.
I’m still thinking it might be Bray Wyatt although they’re different brands. Maybe that’s out of the question, but maybe it’s not. Even if it is out of the question today, it might not be out of the question in a month.
If ratings go down then what decisions will they make at that point? They’re building Bray up for somebody. It certainly isn’t Daniel Bryan. It’s certainly not The Miz. I don’t think it’s Strowman. I guess it might be Roman. I mean it could be Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania. I could absolutely see that.
Those could be the two. I’d say it’s Bray Wyatt against either Roman Reigns or Brock Lesnar.”
