There is no doubt that Wyatt has been screwed up the WWE creative team and not just by him never really being able to get a major win, but also his title win last year. Wyatt has had periods of time when he was the best thing on TV, but it seems like the company has never really wanted to invest in him completely which is very puzzling considering who he's feuded with. I agree with Meltzer though that Bray has needed something new for quite a while and I think even the time off will help.
However, his character isn't the only thing that needed to change as how they book him and view Bray needs to change as well. This though will loose all meaning if they bring Bray back and make him look like Dolph Ziggler did when he randomly returned at the Royal Rumble. I am very excited about them giving Bray Wyatt sometime off and am positive that this will hopefully lead to something good for the former "Eater of Worlds."
