Bray Wyatt is best known for his WWE days, where he was a three-time world champion. The 34-year-old from Brooksville has in fact won the WWE Championship once and the Universal Championship twice. As if that weren't enough, he won the Raw Tag Team Championship once (with Matt Hardy) and once the SmackDown Tag Team Championship (with Luke Harper and Randy Orton).
On July 31, 2021, after several months of absence from the ring, WWE announced his release to general amazement. During WrestleMania Backlash, the pay-per-view staged last weekend, Pat McAfee cited Bray Wyatt's alter ego - namely The Fiend - after seeing a child wearing a mask.
In the latest edition of the 'Hall of Fame' podcast, Booker T reflected on the possibility of seeing Wyatt in WWE again.
New details on Bray Wyatt
Windham Rotunda (f.k.a. Bray Wyatt) is reportedly demanding a "very high" price for an in-ring return, be it in WWE or AEW.
“After Pat McAfee mentioned The Fiend during WrestleMania Backlash, fans went wild on social media. I don't know if Pat's words were casual, or if it was a spoiler. We don't know what's going to happen and the company will do everything possible to ensure that no further details emerge.
I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Bray Wyatt in WWE again in the near future,” said Booker T. The two-time WWE Hall of Famer then analyzed the difficulties that AEW is going through: “At this time of the season, there are a lot of events that All Elite Wrestling is having to compete against.
Either way, it's odd that AEW fails to attract even 500,000 spectators for Friday night shows. I take the liberty of saying that it is quite alarming. For the rest, I don't know exactly how much they spend on making shows and how much they earn from advertising.
I doubt the TNT executives are jumping for joy. They are certainly worried about it, even if it is still a young company." Windham Rotunda's "Bray Wyatt" character made his main roster debut in 2013 and targeted WWE Hall of Famer Kane.
The Wyatt Family, comprising of the man himself, Luke Harper, and Erick Rowan, ran roughshod through a long list of top babyfaces for months on end. During this run, the Wyatt Family head won the WWE Championship on one occasion in 2017. Unfortunately, his reign only lasted a few weeks, and he lost the title to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 33.
