Bray Wyatt’s ‘The Fiend’ gimmick has been doing great with the audience, as fans await the Bray Wyatt WWE Raw return. So great, in fact, that we might see Bray with the gold. The ‘fake Bray Wyatt replacement’ on Raw was just revealed as well.
Vince Russo sat down with Billi Bhatti recently on RussosBrand.com to discuss every WrestleMania leak and change that there are. Upon this new episode, Bray Wyatt was spoken about. Here’s what was said.
Bhatti: “Alright, so we start in October, and the plan is to get the belt off Drew and then have him get the belt back at Wrestlemania. The rumor here is to lose it to Randy Orton-which they did. Randy Orton transitions into ‘The Fiend’. ‘The Fiend’ then carries it over into ‘Mania so you can get Edge and Randy back together.”
Vince Russo speaks up: “Now, Billi, why do you think that went sideways? Why do you think we went from that to ‘The Fiend’ being off TV for two months?
Bhatti: “It went sideways because the company-firstly, they went in a different direction. So, here in November an idea comes around for Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre and keeping Edge and Orton for the Raw championship. This is what essentially happens here…Orton beats Drew for the championship. Immediately after, he goes into a program with ‘The Fiend’. The idea was for ‘The Fiend’ to win this and then Drew and ‘The Fiend’ for Wrestlemania and Randy Orton waits for Edge.”
