Creative details behind Bray Wyatt’s “Fiend” creation

Bray Wyatt’s latest transformation into the ‘Fiend’ character is proving to be a hit with WWE fans and the early signs are certainly strong. During an interview with, designer Jason Baker who has been working with WWE for nearly 10 years, offered more detail into the creative process behind the new character:

“[Tom Savini Studios has] been working with the WWE for almost ten years now,” Baker said. “We have a great relationship with them. We coordinate with the wrestlers to find out what they want, so we spend a lot of time on the phone with them.”

“Firefly Funhouse has consumed my life,” Baker said, laughing. “I don’t want it to sound like I’m complaining though. I’ve had a blast working on it. It’s like a dream come true.”

“It’s all Bray’s brainchild,” Baker said. “He had these ideas, and we did some concept art, but it wasn’t really hitting home with Bray. So he got a really, really good sketch artist named Kyle Scarborough, out of St Louis, to do some concept art for him. Those sketches were awesome, and we took those and brought them to life.”

“They’re good blueprints, but we put our own stamp on the mask as well,” Baker said. “It comes down to sculpting, logistics, and comfort. If the guy’s going to wear this while beating the living piss out of people, he should be able to see out of it and make sure it’s strapped to his head.”

“They [the fans] need to keep watching because they haven’t seen anything yet,” Baker said. “If they think this is the greatest thing to ever happen, they just need to keep watching. It’s going to blow them away.”

    In all fairness, was this comment absolutely necessary. Yes, you indeed saw it. That’s great. Others may not have. Dude, this is what I was talking about. Handle it however you will, but dicks are jerks and assholes are jerks some of the time. You love to flirt with that line. This is a site for wrestling fans who enjoy the art and hate on Harrison…well because he deserves it. He sucks at writing. It’s plain awful. However, and this is to the group as well as you, there doesn’t need to be all of this shit-flinging, dick-measuring mess. Either contribute or go away. I don’t know how old you are but I’ll tell the whole group about me: I’m 32 with 3 kids. It’s the same message I give them. I’ll shut up at this point and I sit at the edge of my seat awaiting your lovely response.

    Usually the concept art isn’t that close to the final product. Interesting how it’s almost exactly the same today.

    this is a little bit of everything, you got a hint of Leatherette from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, severed face Joker from Batman, the bunny from Donnie Darko and finally, Venom from Spiderman.

    This is exactly the same stuff that was reported months ago in a previous interview.
    Hell, even that tweet you linked was posted back in May.
