Bray Wyatt says The Fiend character “died” at WrestleMania 37.
At WWE Extreme Rules 2022, Bray Wyatt made his return to WWE after over a year since his release from the company.
Wyatt will make his in-ring return against LA Knight in the Mountain Dew Pitch Black match this Saturday at Royal Rumble 2023.
Ahead of this weekend’s show, Bray Wyatt sat down with Ryan Satin of WWE on FOX for an interview. Discussing his previous incarnations, the former WWE Champion explained that he feels he cannot do the “cult leader” character without Jon Huber, better known as Brodie Lee, who passed away in 2020.
Wyatt believes it would be disrespectful to do so without him around. Explaining why he feels “The Fiend” character “died” at WrestleMania 37, Bray said:
“For me, the Hawaiian shirt, cult Bray, he can’t be without Brodie [Lee], to me, you know? So I can’t be that without Brodie. It’s just not the same. It’s disrespectful to my best friend.”
“It just can’t be without him but, The Fiend died that day in Tampa, Florida at WrestleMania to me, you know? And again, The Fiend is not just a goof in a mask like people think. That’s just ridiculous (Wyatt laughed).”
“To me, it’s so much more and what you see, where all these things come from, you know, or how they sculpt me or how they molded me as a human being. But he died that day to me and it could never be again. It’s gone.”
As previously reported, Bray also discussed what The Undertaker told him during their segment on WWE Raw 30 this past Monday.
