If you thought Bray Wyatt’s new look resembled more Jason Voorhees than anything else currently going on in the landscape of professional wrestling and sports entertainment, you aren’t alone and that definitely was by designed as it was recently revealed that the Fiend, who reemerged at WWE Fastlane, attacking ‘The Viper’ Randy Orton, had his entire look supervised in part by iconic SFX makeup artist Tom Savini. Savini is known for his work in such legendary and acclaimed horror movies as Dawn of the Dead (1978), Friday the 13th (1980), and Day of the Dead (1985). A Bray Wyatt ‘father’ WWE storyline idea just leaked.
In other news regarding ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt, former WWE writer and polarizing professional wrestling personality Vince Russo recently expressed his displeasure of how ‘The Fiend’ character was utilized during the WWE Fastlane pay-per-view event this past Sunday. During the latest Legion of RAW podcast, Russo told Dr. Chris Featherstone the following remarks.
“Can I hit you with something more puzzling than that? There was a lot on tonight’s show where the stuff was just banging me over the head immediately. I didn’t watch Fastlane but I saw the clips and I saw what happened. Here’s the thing I’m thinking of, The Fiend has not been on TV for the last three months, a major character in the show you didn’t have in the toolbox. Now after three months he’s come back and he’s wearing a really cr***y looking mask and I’m saying to myself, before he got ‘burned’, I’m sure you sold a lot of that mask. That was a realy cool looking mask. Now I’m thinking, what was the point of ‘burning’ this guy and keeping him off TV for three months.”
