Bray Wyatt medically cleared, could be in the mix for Money in the Bank

Seems Bray Wyatt's New Orleans tease from this past weekend may lead to more than just a return on Raw next week from the Crescent City.

The Wrestling Observer reports not only has Wyatt been medically cleared, but he'll likely be thrown into the mix for the pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Sunday, June 19. The ladder match which gives Money in the Bank its name currently only has six men booked, and most prior iterations included seven. While there had been rumors the battle for the briefcase would go with one less wrestler than usual this time, The Observer believes Bray will be added.

It would make sense for a couple reasons. Despite losing most of his feuds (sometimes one-sidedly), the Eater of Worlds has been presented a being on the verge of entering the championship scene in the past - and he has history with at least two of the already announced participants, Dean Ambrose & Chris Jericho.

A big question would be if Wyatt would return as a heel or the babyface he was morphing into before his injury. The Observer's report speculates he'll be a villain again, as he was starting a program with a faction who no longer exists in League of Nations and, partly because of the break-up of the League, WWE is in need of bad guys.

What do you think, Cagesiders?

Excited to have him back? Is putting him in a ladder match a couple months after a serious calf injury the right call? Should he be a heel?
