Bray Wyatt has opened up about the creative risks he chooses to take, following his bout at Royal Rumble 2023.
At the January 28 premium live event, Wyatt defeated LA Knight in a Mountain Dew Pitch Black match.
The bout had a mixed reception, with a portion of the fanbase taking to social media to criticise the match.
In the post-show press conference, Wyatt explained why he doesn’t play it safe in wrestling, noting:
“There are some people that like new concepts and people who take risks and things, and then there are people who don’t just because they don’t.
“It’s a sport to some, it’s a show to others. The beautiful thing about wrestling and this industry is that there is something for everyone.
“I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I’m willing to take risks and do things that no one has ever done. In my opinion, if you’re not willing to do that then what are you doing here?
“It’s about leaving a legacy, for me, and I’d do pretty much anything, especially if no one has ever done it before because I know people will notice, and it’s fun for me.”
