Update: Note that these claims are Billi Bhatti’s own, and Ringside News have a source who disputes his claims.
Recently, on the newest episode of ‘The Nitty Gritty Dirt Show,’ Billi Bhatti sat down with former WWE writer Vince Russo. The two talked about a vast landscape of all things pro-wrestling. Here, Bhatti discussed how Bray Wyatt was at one time punished for a relationship and bringing WWE into the court proceedings. Wrestling-Edge transcribed Bhatti’s comments. This new Bray Wyatt mask cost huge money.
Bhatti: In regards to Bo Dallas, I don’t think you’ll ever see Bo Dallas ever again – like there is actual heat. Before the Fiend character came around. Bray Wyatt was off TV for a while but he was off TV as a punishment. Bray was even teaming up with Matt Hardy and was taken off of TV as a punishment because his divorce was very, very public and WWE were dragged into the proceedings to disclose Wyatt’s earnings. This was so his wife could essentially get the right amount. At this time Wyatt was [allegedly dating] JoJo.
During a recent edition of the Legion is RAW podcast, Vince Russo offered up his opinion on the current incarnation of The Fiend character. Credit to SportsKeeda for the following transcription below.
Bray Wyatt revealed this ‘sad’ AEW wrestler photo not too long ago. “You know what this reminds me of a little bit? You know we have the great series of horror films. We got Friday The 13th with Jason, we got Nightmare On Elm Street with Freddie Krueger… you got those great series. You know what this is the equivalent of? You know what, in Friday The 13th three and four, Jason’s not going to be in these movies. He’ll be in one and two and we’ll bring him back for five and six. That’s what this is the equivalent of. Freddie, you know, Freddie Krueger won’t be in Nightmare On Elm Street 4, we’ll bring him back for five but right now the plans aren’t for him to be in four. It’s incredible and when you think about why they’re doing this, because they don’t have a clue about what to do with the guy, it makes it 10 times worse.”
