Ever since it debuted on WWE RAW this week, Bray Wyatt and his Firefly Funhouse have taken the wrestling world by storm on social media.
It appears to be a huge hit with fans thus far, but it almost wasn’t going to happen at all. The idea behind Bray Wyatt’s new character is essentially Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood meets Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
The idea is reportedly for him to be the creepiest and the scariest character that they’ve produced in recent years and for him to be unbeaten for the foreseeable future. They also have created some crazy segments with input from Jason Jordan, Triple H, and even The Undertaker.
Jason Baker who does special effects and has worked on “Jack Reacher” is said to have helped direct the vignettes with Bray and also built the puppets. WWE actually considered dropping the gimmick altogether after feedback on Tuesday morning from WWE shareholders and sponsors voicing their opinions on it.
They aren’t fans of the whole cult leader of children vibe but despite that WWE sees this as a hit and is going to move forward. Nikki Cross and Lars Sullivan with Bray as the New Wyatt Family was planned just in case but it appears that is not happening.
Hopefully for both WWE and Bray Wyatt it is and takes Wyatt to the next level that he’s been searching for since arriving in WWE.
