WWE Hall Of Famer Opens Up On Popular Gimmick Holding Bray Wyatt Back WWE

A WWE Hall of Famer has opened up about what he feels is holding Bray Wyatt back and it’s a popular part of his gimmick.

With Bray Wyatt not being listed on the internal WWE roster due to an injury, it’ll be some time before we see the character back on our screens again.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has, however, highlighted an aspect of his presentation that he feels is holding Wyatt back.

Speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T said:

“This Firefly Funhouse thing and the magic, you can only take it so far.

“The fans are looking to see a good match. That’s what this business has been predicated on since day one, storylines is always been great, but the payoffs.”

Booker T would acknowledge that The Undertaker is a supernatural character who went on to a long-lasting and successful career in WWE.

He would note that it wouldn’t have happened if The Undertaker wasn’t also a great performer in the ring.

Returning to the subject of Bray Wyatt, Booker T stated:

“I think that’s the problem that Bray Wyatt has had, being that magical creature and not being able to go out there and, I wouldn’t even call them five-star matches or anything like that, but just really good matches.

“I think that’s what’s held Bray Wyatt back more than anything.”

Wyatt’s legacy to date has seen him face a number of the top stars in high-profile matches, and his recent run in WWE has seen him locked in a feud with LA Knight that may be remembered for the Mountain Dew Pitch Black Match at the Royal Rumble in 2023.

Highlights of that particular encounter can be relived below this news story, courtesy of the WWE YouTube channel.

Booker T would go on to talk about Wyatt’s match style, concluding:

“I think he’s worked some good enough guys to go out and have some memorable matches to where you go, not only is he one dimensional, two dimensional, oh man, this guy is three dimensional, he takes you everywhere. I think that’s what’s missing with Bray.”

In early May 2023, it was reported that WWE had hired a new writer for the Bray Wyatt character.
