Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House gimmick is developing into something very interesting. As it turns out, they could also be hinting at some serious layers that WWE is adding to the Wyatt character.
Mental health takes on many different forms and it appears that fans are getting a very deep and twisted look into Bray Wyatt’s psyche through the Firefly Fun House. WWE appears to have dropped some verbiage from therapy into the new segments that could hint at a serious case of PTSD for the Eater Of Worlds.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that references embedded in the Firefly Fun House segments certainly give off the appearance of PTSD therapy. A couple particular instances are especially apparent.
One therapist noted that “Special place” is a standard coping skill used for trauma. The art work of the house in fire is also related to trauma therapy. Putting his hands over his heart is a reference to butterfly hugs, which are used for PTSD therapy involving bilateral stimulation.
As WWE continues in this new entertaining direction for Bray Wyatt it appears that even more will be revealed. We saw that he didn’t seem to mind that one of his friends was brutally murdered last week so that was very intriguing as well.
Wyatt painting a burning house and constantly referring to forgiveness also indicates that therapy could be a major root of this character. It is still uncertain how WWE plans on translating the Firefly Fun House to the ring, but these new vignettes seem to be introducing Bray Wyatt as a character with PTSD who is continually haunted by some kind of past trauma.
