Bray Wyatt was suddenly released by WWE back in July 2021. This was after he was absent from WWE television for several months prior to his release. Wyatt was also inspired by Mick Foley in a huge way.
Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character truly showed off his creative genius, as fans couldn’t believe something like that could become a reality in WWE. Unfortunately, it was too good to be true, as WWE eventually ruined the character thanks to shoddy booking.
During the days of the Wyatt Family, Bray cut his promos on a rocking chair. While speaking on Foley Is Pod, Mick Foley revealed that Wyatt had reached out to him about a pitch influenced by Foley’s 2004 promo on Randy Orton.
“I remember him telling me, ‘Hey if you have a chance … I’m doing this thing, got a rocking chair.’ He alluded to the promo I did with Randy Orton.
I thought it was one of the best things I’d ever done and this is where Vince talked to me about the wisdom of doing it backstage instead of in the ring, because I could focus 100%. You didn’t have to wait for beats or pops, you didn’t have to get a cadence down, you didn’t have to worry about somebody yelling ‘what’.
By being able to do that backstage with the barbed wire bat in the rocking chair, alluding to the things I had done in Japan and the lengths I was willing to go, the things I was willing to do to human beings who were respectful and kind, that I was wondering what lengths I might be willing to go [with] Randy Orton.”
Bray Wyatt wanted a very high price to join AEW. He also revealed his name following his WWE release. It remains to be seen where Wyatt will end up next.
