Bray Wyatt recently trademarked Wyatt 6. AEW Dynamite is in Rochester, New York on July 6th, the hometown of Brodie Lee. Bray started the process to trademark “Wyatt 6” on June 21st, fueling speculation of an AEW debut.
Former WWE manager Dutch Mantell talked about Bray Wyatt’s character in WWE over the years. Wyatt was part of WWE for a decade and had gone through various changes during his time there. This included him being the leader of The Wyatt Family.
Speaking about Wyatt’s character on Wrestling Shoot Interviews, Dutch Mantell criticized The Wyatt Family for not using more heel tactics during their matches in WWE.
“They [The Wyatt Family] didn’t cheat to win. They just beat you up, so where is the heat in that? You can’t get mad at another guy for just beating a guy. It’s like a knockout punch, what’s there to get mad about? I never understood the gimmick. I guess it was like a country cult, but I never really got it. When he used to go out there, he didn’t do anything to make people mad. He never argued with them.
You can’t make wrestling fans think too much. If they don’t get it, they don’t get it. Bray Wyatt could talk for three minutes or two and when he finishes, you’d look over at your friend and say, ‘What the hell did he say?’ As soon as he said it, it was gone. It was in the atmosphere. But if a guy comes out and says, ‘I’m going to beat the living cr*p out of you, at least he said something.
Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31st last year and since then the former WWE Superstar has already teased what he might do next. From what it seems, it is likely he will be making his way to AEW far earlier than expected, as WWE may have let him have a shorter noncompete. Wyatt also appeared on March 13th, at the Showcase of Legends 7 event in Albany, New York. Braun Strowman was released last year as well.
