Yet again, Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss were the biggest talking point after the end of Friday Night SmackDown. Considering the reactions on social media, it seems like WWE has really struck gold with this pairing.
The fans are really digging the entire ‘beauty and the beast’ storyline between the two Superstars. In addition, there are a plethora of possibilities that the WWE can explore with this combination.
While it’s been a while since we’ve seen layered storylines, this one offers the opportunity. What exactly does Bliss mean to Wyatt? Has she been successful in activating a soft spot in his monstrous heart?

That could even lead us further into the Fiend’s universe. Bliss can tap into his human side and we may even get the story of how a normal man became The Fiend. Better still, we might get an insight into the character of Sister Abigail.
Maybe Wyatt starts projecting his probably deceased sister who gave him the trauma that led him to where he is, onto Alexa Bliss. That might lead to one of the best stories ever told by the WWE creative.
At the end of the day, Bliss might not even play a role in the entire rivalry. WWE has a habit of dropping storylines mid-way and this might get the same treatment.
Regardless of that, it has certainly piqued interest. Twitter was rife with speculations about the future and really like WWE’s handling of the story thus far.
Strangely enough, it seems like many WWE fans almost forgot that Braun Strowman is also a part of the storyline. That’s not a good sign considering that Strowman’s reign hasn’t exactly been very entertaining up till now.

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends
Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the… Fiend

The fiend and retribution together that would be something #SDLive

Braun Strowman making a scary voice and calling himself the monster is the best they could come up with? So now he’s a heel that doesn’t care about anything…like The Fiend? That scene was lame af. He should’ve saved Alexa. Now he has to have a full repackage. #Summerscam

Wow. Braun's really gonna forget about Team Little Big like that? I hope The Fiend and Sister Abigail destroy ThE mOnStEr at SummerSlam. #SmackDown

This picture can tell a greater story.
||What IF Braun Strowman is leaned into joining #TheFiend after @SummerSlam along w/ @AlexaBliss_WWE as “Sister Abigail.” This is our new “Wyatt Family” of sorts. Or maybe we get instead Joker and Harley Quin in Bliss and Fiend. #SmackDown pic.twitter.com/NFIA1QRPtH

It was weird. The Fiend reacted like he didn't like that Alexa stopped him. Was Alexa seduced by The Fiend? Is she under The Fiend's control. Was Alexa's strategy to get out of this literally to SEDUCE The Fiend?
I have to believe that she plays a role at SummerSlam. #SmackDown
