Where Should Bray Wyatt Wrestle Next?

All Elite Wrestling

The most obvious place for “The Fiend” to wreak havoc next is AEW. Several WWE castaways have made their way over the second-largest wrestling organization in the States. Talents such as Miro, Malakai Black, Andrade El Idolo, FTR, and a slew of other wrestlers have succeeded as they now ply their trade in AEW. I could definitely see Bray taking a meeting with Tony Khan and showing up to shock us all once his 90-day no-compete clause comes up. He could immediately make an impact by taking on a new moniker concocted by his twisted mind and embracing a new mysterious character that strikes fear into the heart of the AEW roster. Do I want to see him step into the expected role of the new leader of The Dark Order? Nope! That request has pretty much turned into a meme at this point. Wyatt should come in as a solo act that’s protected more than he ever was during his WWE run and get built up into “The Fiend” 2.0. Having him feud with guys like Darby Allin, Malakai Black, and Lance Archer could lead to some intriguing storylines that veer into the dark & supernatural realm. And I’m totally here for it!

New Japan Pro Wrestling

Mike Rotunda (better known as Irwin R. Schyster from his WWF days) competed in NJPW back in the late 90s. As the son of Rotunda, Bray could follow in his father’s footsteps by also plying his trade in the biggest wrestling company in Japan. His supernatural gimmick won’t be welcomed there, of course. Which means he’d have to utilize his “fiendish” tricks in AEW only and put his working boots on when it’s time to put in work in the Tokyo Dome. While Bray isn’t the greatest in the ring, he’s not terrible by any means and has it in him to hold up his end of the bargain against some strong opponents. A heavyweight of Bray’s stature has it in him to work well with the likes of Shingo Takagi, Tomohiro Ishii, EVIL, Jeff Cobb, etc. Now that Bray is in amazing shape with a renewed spirit and probably a chip on his shoulder, I think he has it in him to show and prove during an extended run in NJPW. No need to place him in any of the company’s many stables - have him do things solo and prove his worth to an international audience.

Impact Wrestling

Impact Wrestling is starting to gain a bit of traction now that fans are back and responding well to the inter-promotional run-ins and strong match quality. A ton of former WWE talent has moved over to Impact and have breathed new life into their once stagnant careers - Matt Cardona, Brian Myers, Deonna Purrazo, Rich Swann, and several others are now thriving thanks to their new home. If Bray ended up coming in, I’d love to see him show up alongside his real-life sibling Bo Dallas, plus his former stablemates Braun Strowman and Joseph Rudd (best known as Erick Rowan). Having all four of those ruthless brutes show up to shock the world at Bound for Glory in October would make quite the statement, wouldn't it? Bray could just adopt the role of a maniacal, badass leader that has two destroyers by his side. Just imagine that trio going to war with Violent by Design and Decay! If Bray made the decision to compete for Impact, I’d be down to see him go the stable captain route and revive his career for all to see.

Ring of Honor Wrestling

ROH is a company that primarily focuses on its in-ring product. If you work there, chances are you’re held to a high standard when it comes to your grappling expertise. As I mentioned beforehand, Bray might not be amazing in the ring but he’s far from horrible. Watching him stroll into ROH would be the most shocking (and honestly, unlikely) scenario on this whole wishlist. ROH has a strange mixture of wrestlers that call themselves The Righteous, which consists of twisted personalities such as Vincent, Bateman, and Dutch. Bray would fit right in with those crazies and possibly step into the role as their new leader. Watching him go to war with The Briscoes, Brody King, PCO, and even Danhausen would make for some great material. Bray’s presence would do wonders for ROH’s audience and bring a few more eyes to the severely slept-on wrestling company.
