The main event finish between Seth Rollins and ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt continues to be a hot topic amongst fans and wrestlers. The two clashed at this past Sunday’s Hell in a Cell event, with the referee ending the match via stoppage.
Speaking on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray voiced his thoughts on the controversial ending. He explained how WWE have inadvertently turned Bray Wyatt into a babyface with their decision.
“In doing what they did last night, Bray Wyatt might be the biggest babyface next to Becky Lynch in the WWE right now,” said Bully Ray. “Just because the fans are so annoyed with how the finish went down. Did you notice that after Seth Rollins got done using the kendo stick on Bray Wyatt, Bray eventually took the kendo stick and […] threw it away. Bray didn’t even want to rely on the weapons. The babyface brings in the weapons, they’re not effective, and the ‘heel’ throws the weapons away. There were so many points in that match that they backed Seth Rollins into a corner where it was almost impossible for him to look good.”
“The People Wanted To See Bray Wyatt Win”
Bully Ray addressed how the WWE Universe was in support of Bray Wyatt that night, and that Seth Rollins couldn’t compete with that. To him, it’s because of Rollins’ lack of connection with the audience versus Wyatt’s.
“The people wanted to see Bray Wyatt win. The people wanted to see Bray Wyatt destroy anybody and everything in his path. No matter what Seth Rollins woulda did last night, I think he would have been up against it,” Ray said. “Yes, Seth is a really great wrestler, but when it comes to the emotional investment, I don’t think it’s there…unless he’s standing across from the right person. And the person that he was standing across from last night is more loved by the WWE audience right now than he is. It’s not even close.”
Turning his attention to the ending of the matchup, Bully Ray explained that if a match ends and heat falls on the referee, then a mistake has been made.
“If you ever get to a finish where you have to ask this question: ‘Well, where’s the heat?’ If the answer is the heat is on the ref, you know it’s a bad decision. Heat doesn’t go on a ref. A ref is not a wrestler. Heat is designed for a heel.”
