Bray Wyatt's "Fiend" gimmick has quickly become one of the hottest things in all of WWE, and fans can't help but wonder if we'll get to see a dream showdown with The Undertaker.
Yes, the two superstars competed at WrestleMania 31 - where The Deadman emerged victorious. But Wyatt wasn't an established main event star then, and it took place long before "The Fiend" was born.
Some fans were hoping we'd see a showdown on this week's episode of SmackDown Live in Madison Square Garden, where Undertaker made a grant return. Well, the good news is that it sounds like we'll get to see a showdown between these two superstars soon enough.
According to Brad Shepard of Oh, You Didn't Know (h/t Ringside News), WWE chose not to do the Undertaker-Fiend segment this week because they're going to "continue to build" it up.
Shepard also said that the current plan is for them to meet on the Oct. 4 episode of SmackDown Live - the first under the Fox Sports television. That show also marks the 20th anniversary special. It was noted by Shepard that Vince McMahon could always end up changing his mind and thus hold off on the Taker-Fiend clash even more.
All signs are pointing to a big push for Wyatt here. It's been reported that he could end up interfering in the Seth Rollins-Braun Strowman Universal Championship match at Clash of Championship.
The rumor also outlines that Wyatt would get to face Rollins for his title at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Oct. 6. So if the rumored plans fall in place, Wyatt would get a confrontation with Undertaker ahead of a title match with Rollins. Indeed, he's receiving quite the push.
Is Bray Wyatt Ready For A Major Push?
With Wyatt supposedly getting involved in the Universal title picture plus a feud with Undertaker, it seems like Vince McMahon is ready to go all-in with The Fiend. New Raw Executive Director Paul Heyman also seems intent on pushing Wyatt, and rightfully so. He's cut out for being a top-tier heel, and with The Fiend gimmick completely over with the WWE Universe, Wyatt is deserving of a main eventer spot.
