Will The New Face of Fear continue to haunt the WWE World Title?
After falling short in his attempt to become No. 1 contender to the WWE World Title in a Six-Pack Challenge one week earlier, Bray Wyatt returned to SmackDown Live last week to attack the Superstar who claimed that distinction, Dolph Ziggler. Then, after nearly stealing away The Showoff’s SummerSlam title opportunity, he and Erick Rowen took out both Ziggler and WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose as SmackDown Live came to a close. Will Wyatt be satisfied with his dark statement or will the failure of his adversaries to keep him in check only lead to further mayhem?
Moreover, although Ziggler only put his No. 1 contender position on the line against Wyatt to prove “who he was” to both Ambrose and the WWE Universe, could Wyatt’s aggression against both champion and challenger ironically force them to work together to repel The Eater of Worlds? In any event, it will be interesting to see how much chaos will come from further interaction between Ziggler and The Lunatic Fringe.
