Bray Wyatt was definitely one of the most creative wrestlers in all of WWE, even while he was gone. In fact, some believed he was far too creative for the company, as he was never used to his full potential there.
The former Universal Champion was let go by WWE in July of last year. Since then, the world wondered where he would go next. AEW seemed like a good option at the time, but it never happened.
Bray Wyatt made his return during the Extreme Rules Premium Live Event and completely blew the roof off the entire arena. While speaking on the “Grilling JR” podcast, Jim Ross talked about Bray Wyatt’s return and made it clear that he is very happy for Wyatt.
“I think he’s a big-time player and I’m glad he’s back. I’m not sure where they’re headed with that deal, nor would I like to know, I like to watch it all unfold when I get a chance. Somebody earlier asked if I watch WWE, I watch it sometimes, but I do because I’m a wrestling fan. I’ve got my brand, AEW is my brand, and that’s what I’m buying my groceries on but I think he’s a hell of a talent.
He’s got that Blackjack Mulligan and Mike Rotunda blood running through his veins, he’s athletic as hell for a 300-pound guy. I’m glad he’s back, I’m glad anybody is back for any company if everybody is on board. In other words, I believe that this is going to make Bray Wyatt very happy and very fulfilled and I think that’s a good thing.”
Bray Wyatt cut a very emotional promo on Friday Night Smackdown this week. We will have to wait and see what the future holds for Wyatt.
