3 Lesser known facts about Bray Wyatt
Bray Wyatt is possibly the hottest star in not only WWE but the entire pro wrestling fraternity right now. His Firefly Fun House episodes have been intriguing and his first match (after returning) at SummerSlam 2019 left the fans wanting for more.
While the journey of the man named Windham Lawrence Rotunda has seen more downs than ups, it seems that Wyatt’s career is finally back on track. The Fiend’s theme song has been ruling the music charts and it can be said that WWE has struck gold with this scary, yet entertaining gimmick of Wyatt. Bray was not on last week’s RAW and SmackDown Live but appeared out of nowhere to attack Jerry Lawler on the Red Brand this week.
As is the case for any pro-wrestler, there are many facts about Wyatt’s career which are not so known. Today, we present to you three such facts about the 'Eater of Worlds' Bray Wyatt:
#1 ‘Eater of Worlds’ moniker was given to him by Dusty Rhodes
Wyatt has been called the ‘Eater of Worlds’ ever since he debuted the Wyatt Family gimmick. After all, the creepy gimmick that Wyatt had, with his horrifying family led to the fans believing that Wyatt was capable of conquering WWE, if not the whole world.
Dusty Rhodes was the head writer and creative director for WWE’s NXT brand till 2013. It was in April 2012 that Wyatt made his debut as the leader of the Wyatt Family on the yellow brand. So, it may not come as a surprise that the ‘Eater of Worlds’ moniker was given to Wyatt by the WWE legend himself.
Given how Wyatt’s previous gimmick unfolded, with him dominating his opponents and calling himself a god, the moniker surely suited Wyatt. This is yet another example of the creative intellect possessed by the late Hall of Famer and Wyatt’s willingness to do whatever he can to make his gimmick more interesting.
