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 could be losing The Fiend to a big name in WWE.
Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31st and since then the former WWE Superstar has already teased what he might do next. From what it seems, it is likely he will be making his way to AEW far earlier than expected, as WWE may have let him have a shorter noncompete.
Jeff Hardy recently spoke with Metro UK, where he revealed that his Willow character in WWE would be similar to Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend.
I can’t help but think how cool it was when I first witnessed The Fiend, and the light shutting down. It was so cool to me – that’s kinda my thing too, I was like, “Man, this is so cool!” Now he’s not here anymore, I think there’s something really cool Willow could do similar to that.
