Backstage News on The Wyatt Family Debut – WWE’s Reaction?, The Undertaker Injured, More

– Even before last night’s RAW hit the air, The Wyatt Family were trending worldwide on Twitter.

– WWE officials were happy with the way Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper debuted on last night’s RAW, even though they were debuted in a segment that normally gets bad ratings. No word yet on WWE’s response to the crowd reaction but it’s worth noting that they did not edit out the Husky Harris chants when re-posting the debut on YouTube and

– There was immediate speculation that The Wyatts were gearing up for a SummerSlam match against Kane and The Undertaker after they took out Kane on RAW last night. reports that The Undertaker may not be ready for SummerSlam as he’s hurt again. Apparently Taker injured himself in his most recent WWE TV angle with The Shield a few months ago.

For what it’s worth, WWE’s goal with The Wyatt Family is said to be turning them babyface but that likely won’t happen for a while.

    more like, one group (i.e Shield) will be headed to Smackdown. And since U.S champ Ambrose is in the Smackdown MITB match I think its already happened. Also why is there no talk about the Tag team match being pushed to the pre show? Usos didn’t deserve a real PPV title match.. fucking poor effort WWE. Give them one day in the sun before you push them back in the shit again.

    As for their debut… boring. The pathetic “ reporter” clips were soooo poorly edited together. Dragged on for way to long. Husky talking about all the same dribble he has been talking about for weeks in each promo, nothing new there and then sat his ass in a chair. We all know hes a big high flyer, why not have him in the air in the attack with them?
    Picking Kane for the debut was shit also. No offence to him but Kane is no longer a big major player… attacking him does what exactly? (without knowing about the Undertake/Kane match) Should of attacked Orton or even come out during the Shemus/Brian match stirred the pot, have Kane come out then trying to help Brian and then get the Wyatt’s to focus there force on him, laying him out. Hell even unmask Kane.
    The debut as it was… Stale.

    Wrestling crowds seem to be really proud to realize guys at some point were also other guys.

    Ugh, no. They need to stay heel and compete with The Shield. Maybe do an angle where they both try to do a run in and attack someone at the same time and the two groups are like, “No, WE’RE gonna beat this guy up!” and set up a good, long feud. Maybe they could eventually do parodies of one-another and bring a bit of comedy to the situation, but not full-blown babyface.

    I got mad when they were chanting – “You’re ruining it!!!” LOL

    “Husky Harris” chants are why we can’t have nice things.
