Bray Wyatt has been well-known for his enigmatic persona. The Fiend’s gimmick gave most of Bray Wyatt’s career recognition. The 35-year-old made his much anticipated return in October last year. However, he then disappeared from television due to his real-life injury. Wyatt has remained absent since then, showing no signs of returning.
While speaking on the Hall of Famepodcast, Booker T spoke about Wyatt’s character and its flaws. The WWE veteran spoke on what he believes hinders Bray Wyatt’s career. Wyatt is one of the most prominent stars in the WWE. Despite his much-hyped return last year, he failed to make a mark and live up to the hype. Booker T believes that some aspects of his character hold him back.
Speaking about it, Booker T said that Bray Wyatt was confined to his Firefly Funhouse and supernatural characters. He believes that one can only do limited things with that persona. The WWE veteran believes it’s also necessary to give quality matches in the ring, which he feels Wyatt lacked. “This Firefly Funhouse thing and the magic, you can only take it so far,” he said.
Booker T then praised The Undertaker and compared him with Bray Wyatt. He said that The Undertaker, despite having a supernatural character, delivered great performances in the ring. The NXT commentator feels that Wyatt should do something similar to his character. He believes this is one of the significant reasons behind the former WWE Champion’s setback.
