The Wyatt Family's Debut.

The Wyatt Family and First feuds.

Bray Wyatt, aka Husky Harris, aka Mr. Rotunda, is a cult leader who, along with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, debuted in Mid-2013 and destroyed Kane. In his latest inferno match, Bray dominated Kane and destroyed Kane and left him laying. They abducted Kane (in storyline) and told the whole WWE Universe that he was no more. They ran roughshod for the rest of 2013 and the first part of 2014. They had a feud with the most popular guy of 2013-2015 in Daniel Bryan. They forced him to join the Wyatt Family. I remember watching him reluctantly destroy faces. Then, in a steel cage match in Mid-January 2014, Daniel Bryan heralded the largest "Yes" chant in history. At the 2014 Royal Rumble, they had one of the best matches in their young careers. Even though Daniel Bryan lost, he was booked strong. The Wyatt Family entered the Royal Rumble and lasted a good bit before being eliminated.

Then, the Wyatt Family went up against The Shield, and that was an epic battle. Six Villains, one match. Who was going to win? Then, Bray Wyatt had his Wrestlemania moment when he faced off against John Cena. He lost by the way. What's even worse was that the Wyatt Family's momentum was teetering at the edge of rock bottom. WWE started to book him like a chump and John Cena far too strong. John was saying stuff on-script, while Bray was saying stuff on-script. At Extreme Rules, John Cena had the match won, but then a kid with a voice changing device (produced by WWE itself), sang "He's got the whole world in his hands" and that distraction caused Bray to pin him for the win. At Payback, though, John Cena won the feud in a Last Man Standing Match after a combination of The Usos preventing the rest of the family from interfering, and him performing his finishing maneuver on him and breaking a box and sandwiching him between under another box.

Bray Wyatt's Career after Payback.

After Payback, the fans started losing faith in him, but they still recognized talent in him. He talked about Sister Abigail giving him a chance at a WWE World Heavyweight Championship money in the bank ladder match (the WWE World Heavyweight Championship consisted of the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship at the time). That match was won by John Cena. After that, his career went dark. Then, Chris Jericho Happened. He wanted to put Bray over, so in a series of matches, first during RAW and then during Battleground, they exchanged wins. At Summerslam, he successfully put Bray over clean. In a later interview, he gave a reason as to why he put Bray over clean, and that was because of John Cena's actions towards Bray. However, on the August 25, 2014 edition of Monday night Raw, John Cena defeated each member of the Wyatt Family three times over three hours. He did his finishing maneuver on all three members of the Wyatt Family at the end of RAW that night. That's when their career went dark.

Survivor Series and Subsequent Feuds

The Wyatt Family began a partial feud with The Authority after Erick Rowan turned on his family. At Survivor Series, Team Authority lost when Dolph Ziggler defeated the last member of Team Authority due to a returning TNA and WCW superstar in Sting. After that, John Cena was told that he had the key to bring back the Authority, and he reluctantly did it after Seth Rollins threatened to crush Edge's windpipe. 2015 started on a low note for the RAW part of WWE, even though it garnered more than 4 million viewers that night.

Bray Wyatt's Career for the rest of 2015.

During February and March of 2015, he was talking about how he and Sister Abigail wold team up and defeat the once-invincible Undertaker. During the end of February and March, the undertaker's lightning effects were teased during various portions of the month. At Wrestlemania 31, he faced The Undertaker, but ultimately lost. I don't remember much about his career in 2015,, but here's what I know and read. Braun Strowman made his debut in Mid 2015 and attacked the remaining members of the shield. The Wyatt Family continued their feud with Reigns and Dean and lost the feud at hell in a cell. Then, The Undertaker returned and was quickly dispatched by the Wyatts. Kane returned to seek revenge, but he too was carried to the back. Bray started talking about gaining The Undertaker's thunderbolts and Kane's flames. Unfortunately for the Wyatts,, they were outmatched when the Brothers of Destruction showed up, even though they had the numbers game. WWE made the Wyatts look incredibly weak. The Wyatts continued to be underutilized for the rest of 2015.

Bray Wyatt's career, devastating Wrestlemania loss, other programs and Smackdown Draft.

I don't remember the beginning of 2016 for bray wyatt, other than being underutilized for the first half of 2016, including a catastrophic double-loss at Wrestlemania 32, which was arguably the worst Wrestlemania of all time. The Rock competed for the first time since losing the WWE Championship to John Cena 3 years earlier. He Defeated Bray Wyatt in 6 Seconds, which was just one-third of Sheamus's Record of 18 seconds over Daniel Bryan for the World Heavyweight Championship, and one-tenth of a minute. As if that wasn't enough, John Cena returned and teamed up with the rock to take them down again. Then, they started to feud with The New Day and together they did a cheap version of TNA's "Final Deletion" scene, where the New Day were victorious. They continued their feud with The New Day, and then lost the feud. Then, light at the end of the tunnel happened. Bray Wyatt, along with Erick Rowan, were drafted to Smackdown, while Braun Strowman was drafted to RAW, therefore isolating the Wyatt Family. Luke Harper returned later on after Rowan was injured.

Bray Wyatt's slow rise to Tag team Gold, betrayal, and eventual WWE Championship Reign

Throughout August and September, the Wyatts were not utilized properly, until an unexpected turn of events happened. In October, Randy Orton was about to perform his finishing maneuver on Bray Wyatt, but instead performed it on his friend, Kane, turning heel in the process for the first time since the year prior. In December, the Wyatt Family captured the Smackdown Tag Team Championships for the first time when they defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno. A few weeks later, though, they lost the titles to American Alpha. They invoked their rematch clause, and a week later, they lost when Orton and Harper engaged in a miscommunication. In January, Harper faced Randy Orton. I don't remember the results of the match though, because I deleted every single recording of Smackdown the John Cena appeared on. The Tuesday after John Cena won his 16th WWE Championship, Daniel Bryan announced his opponents for the elimination chamber in 12 days, including Bray Wyatt, who is the world's greatest talker, and a potential multi-month title holder. At the Elimination chamber, Bray Wyatt defeated two of the world's greatest superstars in AJ Styles and John Cena (Even though 99.9% of hardcore fans see John Cena as untalented) with his finishing maneuver, Sister Abigail, to win his first ever WWE Championship after more than 3 years of clawing and scratching and hardships along the way.

The Beginning of the Era of Wyatt and subsequent premature end.

On the following Smackdown, he cut a promo after the fans told him that he deserved the win, telling them that he and Sister Abigail spoke the truth and that he had the whole (damn) world in his hands. He said too much power can be a good thing for him, and he welcomed the fans to "The Era of Wyatt" before being interrupted by John Cena, who told him that he had everybody brainwashed. Newsflash, John, you've been brainwashing the entire WWE, Media, music industry, and movie industry that you are at the top of the kingdom for more than 10 years. Anyways, After that, AJ Styles interjected himself into the equation, which set up Daniel Bryan to issue a triple threat match for the WWE Championship. Just like that, the Era of Wyatt was in jeopardy of a premature finish. Then, the Era of Wyatt took a turn for the worse when Luke Harper attacked him just before the main event. However, Bray Wyatt was able to defeat his opponents when he performed Sister Abigail on John Cena, the same man he Eliminated at the Elimination Chamber just two days prior, and pinned him for the win, effectively keeping the Era of Wyatt safe. Then, Wyatt Family member Randy Orton came and cut a promo, saying that he won the royal rumble and would normally headline Wrestlemania, but he said he will not face him because he pledges his undying allegiance to Bray Wyatt, who in turn said that he has the keys to the kingdom. After that, Randy Orton posed with Wyatt after the promo. Then, on Talking Smack, Daniel Bryan and Renee Young were bantering over the Randy Orton situation. Bryan, in turn, would make a game-changing decision that would affect every Smackdown Superstar. Over the following number of weeks, Luke Harper would get a push, but that all changed when Randy Orton cut a very dangerous promo inside the supposed Wyatt family compound. He then proceeded to commit an act of arson on the compound. Over the following weeks, they played mind games with each other. The Wyatt Era came to an end at Wrestlemania 33 when Randy Orton defeated him.

Subsequent move to RAW.

Bray Wyatt continued to be on Smackdown until the shake-up, when the whole WWE Universe, their ratings, viewership numbers, and superstars, were flipped upside down. Since then, Bray has absolutely floundered on RAW. I saw him clearly get beat by Roman Reigns on an episode of Monday Night RAW. I don't know when he will recover. It is shown that Bray has lost 64.2% of his matches, which does not bode well for the Eater of Worlds.
