I am sure by now everyone has seen clips from this Monday's RAW, where Bray Wyatt finally made his television debut, attacking Finn Balor after his match. On the most recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray gives his thoughts and advice on how he feels Bray Wyatt's new Fiend persona should be booked if WWE wants to keep the character fresh.
Below are some exerts from the show:
“If you pick your spots with Bray Wyatt, just like they did Monday night, you will have something special,” Bully stated. “If I’m Bray Wyatt, I’m looking at a couple of the hurdles the Undertaker had to get over with that character, that is very similar to the fiend character, right now. I want to keep myself fresh, nothing can be prostituted, nothing can be given away, nothing should be done with the fiend that is a throwaway and doesn’t even matter, everything has to mean something.”
“If you take a look at the fiend, it’s really kind of a gimmicky gimmick. This is like Doink was taken to the millionth level. You don’t want it to get stale, how do you not make it stale? You make it special. You don’t do it every single week, you find the right people at the right time, and the right time is when you normally expect it to happen the least.”
“Bray is the key,” Bully reiterated. “He is the one to make sure, he has got to say no. if they say, ‘Hey Bray you’re going to go out there and do this,’ if he doesn’t feel one-hundred percent right, he has to say no and he has to stick to his guns. It’s hard, but he knows what is going to get this character over. Nine times out of ten, the wrestler knows what is going to get their character over better than creative does.”
