Let’s start by saying that Jim Cornette is clearly not a fan of The Fiend Bray Wyatt..
The Fiend Bray Wyatt is one of the most popular and creative characters we’ve seen in WWE for a long time.
Bray Wyatt has an extremely creative mind and worked hard with WWE as well as Hollywood special effects stars to bring The Fiend character to life, and create a very dark and captivating appearance.
Unfortunately for Wyatt the booking for him has been less than desirable and the character has suffered overall due to this. Some even feel that it’s already lost it’s appeal altogether.
Jim Cornette recently spoke about The Fiend on his Drive-Thru podcast and let’s just say he didn’t have a lot of great things to say.
“This whole thing is just… probably the worst,” Cornette said. “And over the last year and a half or two years, imagine how much that takes in. As probably 50% of it has involved The Fiend. Every time we see him it’s garbage. It’s goofy f**king puppets appearing out of nowhere. It’s supernatural bull**it, black sludge vomit, being killed in front of us and then just getting up or whatever.
No, it’s totally unsalvageable. That’s not wrestling anymore. So I don’t know what the f**king attraction is that anybody would be entertained by this horses**t. But no I wouldn’t book The Fiend except possibly a long stay at the mental institution. I mean the whole thing, the Firefly vignettes, the whole thing is an embarrassment to the business.”
The Fiend Bray Wyatt is a fan favorite, but he hasn’t appeared since his loss to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37, which saw Alexa Bliss turn on him. He might not be Jim Cornette’s favorite, but we here at The Ringside Roster hope when he reappears he can start to get some momentum going.
