Bray Wyatt is talking about retiring Undertaker, right?

We're inching closer and closer to the big reveal. Sooner rather than later, we'll find out just who it is Bray Wyatt has been talking about in his cryptic promos over the past few weeks. We're fairly certain it's Undertaker, but if that's the case what's the angle here?

Here are transcriptions from his promos, in order:

"What makes you smile? Is it spending time with loved ones? Is it money? Power? Perhaps it's a memory that you hold dear? Maybe it's something nostalgic from your childhood? But me, I'm different. I find enjoyment from the types of things that your mommy and daddy have shielded you from your entire life. I am not like you. I'm different. I am legion amongst men. I fear nothing, living or dead. So I ask you, what makes you smile? Because after what transpires next I promise it will be hard for you to ever smile again. Run!"

"I have been called many names in the past: Seducer, accuser, destroyer. But you, you may call me Bray. Because I've been watching you man. I've been watching you for quite some time now. And oh how they used to fear you. But look what you gone and did; you let all that fear turn into love and admiration. But me, I'm a little bit different. Me, I am the new face of fear. I am the dragon. The devil is real, man, and he can not wait to see you again. I know you're listening. Find me."

"They say a man is defined by his actions but I am no man. I am everywhere. I am everything. I am the spirit of perpetual negation. I am the reaper. What is it that makes you think that you are immune to me and that there would be no repercussions to your actions? Maybe you think that your sins just don't count. But the eyes of a fool are blinded by pride and now the devil is knocking on your door. Knock. Knock. Knock. He just wants you to come home. Just let him in. Let him in. Let me in."

"Since the dawn of their existence, mankind has struggled to answer one simple question: Where do we go when we die? A man of science would have you believe that we just become one with the Earth, nothing more. A man of faith would view things from a much, much different perspective. But what about those like you and I? We're special. For us, there is no death. Wanna hear a secret? This world is our hell. This world is our hell. We don't belong here. I know you can hear me. Now, my eyes are wide open and I don't fear you anymore; I pity you. It's time for you to go home. Find me. FIND ME!"

"What happened to you was such a tragedy. What happened to you still stirs a rage deep down inside of me. It makes me want to do horrible things. And now look at you. You're an empty shell. And any fear that I once had of you has turned into nothing more than putrid, hateful pity. It's coming. His hands may have created this world. But mine will destroy it. Limbo is no place for a soul like yours. I'm waiting for you. What shakes the heart of a man who can never truly die? I believe I've found the answer. The answer lives within me. The answer is the creature that lives behind my eyes. The answer is Bray Wyatt. Look around you man. There's nowhere left to go. The angel with the burnt wings cometh. It's time. Find me. FIND ME. Or I'll find you."

He's talking about retiring Undertaker, no? If that's the case, could we be just over one month away from Bray Wyatt sending "The Deadman" riding off into the sunset?

Would you be okay with that if so?
