The Fiend has been one of the most over characters in recent WWE history and one of the most imaginative too. Who would have thought that we would all be tuning in to see a load of toys talking and a face Bray Wyatt interacting with a doll, a vulture and even a puppet of the boss himself, Vincent Kennedy McMahon? But we did and were rewarded with The Fiend, a character that was neither face nor heel, a creepy horror character closer to Michael Myers than any wrestler. The character was so great, he even gave John Cena an amazing match/film and is probably the reason that JC is getting the cheers now on his return.
So, it seems strange that WWE should, seemingly without warning, let Byat Wyatt go with nothing but the old “Best wishes in your future endeavours’ bullshit. It seems even more cutting as they are currently trying to sell us a watered down version of the character for Alexa Bliss, who was always so threatening as she was in cahoots with this monster. Without him here, we probably have to tolerate more of her dumb doll, Lily. See, Bray made the puppets live and you really cared about them, with Bliss, it is all too much.
Bliss commented on Bray’s release : “I really am at a loss for words…thank you so much Windham for everything you’ve done for this company. The most fun I’ve had is working with you. Such an amazing talent and the most kind person. I’m just in shock.” Us too, Alexa, WWE might have trouble now trying to sell us the fiendish Bliss without the whole audience giving back a Fiend chant, you’ve been warned Vince. I expect Bray on AEW being used properly as soon as possible. Fans doing the math have deduced he can appear in time for…Halloween, which seems perfect. Omega vs Wyatt? Yes, please. Wyatt vs Page? Yes, please. WYATT VS CM MOTHERFVCKING PUNK? I’m getting too far ahead of myself but the future must surely be bright for ole Husky Harris.
