Bray Wyatt has been often imitated but never duplicated within WWE. Except for that time where Bray Wyatt was actually duplicated…Batista ‘Replaced’ At WrestleMania Backlash.
Just before writing on the dotted line with Ring of Honor, Beer City Bruiser had a very short stint on WWE television as the fake Bray Wyatt. Bruiser had done a lot of enhancement/jobber work for WWE in the past previous to becoming fake Wyatt.
The venture that he was apart of as the fake Bray Wyatt not only gave him a great television appearance that he was very content with, he was also gifted with a modified version of Bray’s Sister Abigail.
Bruiser had stated: “The DDT came because I was the fake Bray Wyatt at a WWE show. It went over really well and he was like, ‘Hey man, you should use my finishing move and make it twist.’ So, I ended up throwing a DDT with it and that’s my new finisher in Ring of Honor.”
Bruiser’s current version of the high regarded finisher sees him start in the Sister Abigail position that the real Bray Wyatt uses and then Bruiser adds his own flavor to it by adding in a twist into a DDT to end his victim.
