The Wyatt Sicks finally made their WWE debut on the June 17th edition of Monday Night RAW and they are truly the talk of the town right now. However, not everyone is optimistic about the faction, and that includes Jim Ross, who believes it will be difficult to make the faction work.

The group made a powerful statement by laying out everyone backstage and closed the show standing tall. The presentation of the group, especially Uncle Howdy’s involvement, drew comparisons to the late Bray Wyatt among fans.

While speaking on his Grilling JR, Jim Ross talked about the debut of the Wyatt Sicks. He acknowledged seeing highlights of their debut and expressed skepticism about their ability to replicate Bray Wyatt’s impact.

Ross gave emphasis to the fact that Bray Wyatt’s unique talent cast a massive shadow that would be challenging for anyone to fill. He compared the situation to trying to replace iconic figures like Steve Austin with similar personas, highlighting that such efforts often fall short.


“I saw highlights of it, I did. I think it’s gonna be challenging to make it work. Bray Wyatt cast a massive shadow, and he was amazingly talented. The new group doesn’t have anybody that, to me, and I don’t mean to be course, but Bray Wyatt can’t be replaced. So the more that WWE can make this new group different, the better off they’ll be. But to try to emulate and to replicate step-by-step, it’s gonna be really challenging. That’s like saying, ‘We’ll get another bald guy with a goatee that can do. stunner, and he’ll be [Steve] Austin.’ Well, it don’t work that way. It just does not work that way. So look, I’m all for those guys being successful and going well. It’s all about the business and guys getting an opportunity to provide better for their families, which I’m all for. But I think it’s gonna be challenging.”

We have already reported WWE’s long-term plans for the Wyatt Sicks faction. It remains to be seen how WWE will book the faction in the coming months, as it is very clear they will have a constant presence on the shows going forward.
