I seriously cannot wait until Sunday and TLC to finally arrive. I expect a great match between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt but also the finish of this feud that has been stale for a while now. So, at this episode of SmackDown both men just added another drop to their rivalry. A drop – no more, no less.
No-one will talk about Bray Wyatt in five years
Once again we had to stand some Bray Wyatt babbling. The following he had to say:
“I offered Dean Ambrose the path to salvation, and he chose the road to damnation. Dean Ambrose is just like you – and you, just like him, deserve everything that you’re going to get. This is no longer about what could have been! There is only what must be. 2,000 years from now people will still be talking about the great things that Bray Wyatt did. 2,000 years from now your children will be learning about me in school. This Sunday, Dean Ambrose’s demise is my salvation! Tables, ladders, and chairs. Run.”
In 2,000 years, huh? Oh, dear, like I stated in the headline: I really don’t get anymore what’s so great about Bray Wyatt. This character is stale, like this feud is. It’s just one little promo against one little promo; this neck injury to Dean Ambrose was probably meant to add some heat. But in the end it did nothing but wondering if this was just an angle to keep Dean Ambrose off the Slammys show for the best part at least. End this after this match. I won’t stand another month of wasting the talent that is Dean Ambrose.
Please, WWE, don’t waste Dean Ambrose in this feud any longer
So, Bray Wyatt promised salvation for himself while Dean Ambrose just wants to have a great fight. I still suffer from this badly timed interference by Bray Wyatt into the Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins feud. But this time I would welcome any interference to end this feud with open arms. Since The Ascension was already teased for making their debut and TLC is always great for debuts, an attack by Konnor & Viktor on Dean Ambrose would be my highlight of this show. My fear is – and I honestly expect nothing else – that WWE plans for just another month keeping Dean Ambrose into this meaningless feud. At least, let him win this match since it would be his first win in his singles career in WWE. Let him win clean or via attack by The Ascension. Both versions would be great and the only two options, really!
