The Fiend remains one of the most unique characters to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. Bray Wyatt’s latest iteration made its in-ring debut back at 2019’s SummerSlam pay-per-view again Finn Balor, where he won in a squash match. However, his booking since then has been panned by many fans. Particularly him losing to Goldberg at WWE Super Showdown last year. He would lose to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 in a singles match after being betrayed by Alexa Bliss. He has not been seen on WWE television since then. Bray Wyatt might be replacing Alexa Bliss on Monday Night RAW as well.
Pro wrestling legend Jim Cornette talked about Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend on the latest edition of “Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru“. He utterly blasted the character, stating that it is an embarrassment to the pro wrestling business in general.
“This whole thing is just… probably the worst,” Cornette said. “And over the last year and a half or two years, imagine how much that takes in. As probably 50% of it has involved The Fiend. Every time we see him it’s garbage. It’s goofy f**king puppets appearing out of nowhere. It’s supernatural bull**it, black sludge vomit, being killed in front of us and then just getting up or whatever.”
“No, it’s totally unsalvageable. That’s not wrestling anymore. So I don’t know what the f**king attraction is that anybody would be entertained by this horses**t. But no I wouldn’t book The Fiend except possibly a long stay at the mental institution. I mean the whole thing, the Firefly vignettes, the whole thing is an embarrassment to the business,” Jim Cornette said.
