40-year-old star returning to WWE for Bray Wyatt: "I'm coming back to represent my fallen brother"
Bray Wyatt was a friend and brother to many WWE stars behind the scenes. Braun Strowman, who has been out of action for a while, revealed that he isn't returning to TV for himself but for Wyatt.
Strowman debuted on the main roster as the "Black Sheep" of the Wyatt Family in 2015 and has since established himself as a popular name in WWE. The Monster of all Monsters has been sidelined from in-ring competition since May 1, as he underwent neck surgery and has been training for a comeback.
The 40-year-old isn't thinking about himself, and all his focus is on ensuring he represents Bray Wyatt, as he stressed below:
"I'm so blessed that he saw something in me and believed in me if something happened to him and step up into that role to be the godfather of his son. So I'm not only coming back to represent myself, I'm coming back to represent my fallen brother," said Strowman.
Braun Strowman is working hard to get back in shape ahead of his WWE return
Bray Wyatt passed away in August and left behind a unique legacy in professional wrestling. His creative pursuits were well-acknowledged, but he was also a loved name backstage. Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt were on-screen stablemates and rivals but were even closer outside the ring.
Returning for neck surgery isn't easy, but Strowman has all the motivation in the world as he has a bigger purpose behind his return this time around:
"That's one of the biggest things why I'm working so hard to get back into shape. Get back into the ring because, like I'm coming back for more than me, I have to come back for him as well, being that he's my brother." [H/T India Today]
Wyatt meant a lot to Strowman, and he can't wait to compete in WWE again and pay homage to his late best friend.
