Bray Wyatt was released from WWE back in July last year and it utterly shocked the pro wrestling industry. Jim Ross even previously stated that Wyatt’s release from WWE proved that the company has bad management. Several people simply couldn’t understand why he was even released.
Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character was one of the most creative gimmicks in the company’s history. In a creatively restricted environment such as WWE, fans wondered how much creative control Wyatt really had.
Rhino has been part of the pro wrestling industry for well over two decades now. He has competed in ECW, WWE, Impact Wrestling and others. While speaking on The Angle podcast, Rhino talked about a moment he had shared with Bray Wyatt when they first met. Rhino claimed Wyatt told him he is a huge fan of the pro wrestling veteran.
“I’ve gotten a lot of respect behind the scenes and, you know, from the men and women. I’ll never forget the first time I met Bray Wyatt, he goes, ‘Oh man, big fan’. You know, back when I was growing up, it was kind of taboo for you to say that.”
We will have to wait and see which pro wrestling company Bray Wyatt will call his home next as it has been a long time since fans got to see Wyatt compete inside the squared circle.
