“Here’s what happens with these talents – they get to a point of no return where they know that we can’t fix this now. I found out something very interesting this week. I did not know this. I got smartened up. Did you know of this thing, this momo thing? This momo gimmick? A scary character that was just popping up. Bro, do you know that Bray Wyatt based that character and the Funhouse and the kids and all that stuff off of that momo crazy. And now when you look back at it, that all makes sense now. Bro, that was the idea in his head and that was his vision and look.”
He then said that the gimmick has reached to a place where it cannot be fixed and the talents like Elias are only there to collect the paycheck and have nothing special about the gimmick.
“What they turned that into? Black goo. Literally bro, just clipped his wings. That’s what happens with these guys. It happened with Elias. They get to this point of beyond repair. Let me just collect my cheque now because we can’t fix this.”
We will have to see when Wyatt decides to make his comeback and could settle the scores with Alexa Bliss.
