Bray Wyatt Talks Triple H, Promos, and The Undertaker

Bray Wyatt is one of the WWE’s most intriguing upcoming superstars. The youngster has captivated WWE audiences with his unique presence and persona and gave a behind-the-scenes look at both in a recent interview.

Bray Wyatt took the WWE world storm a year ago. The anticipation for his debut was maybe the most for a debuting star in quite some time. Wyatt lived up to expectations with a unique presentation of persona and attitude, topped off with a new flavor of promo unseen in the WWE Universe. Wyatt recently talked to Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald about his promo style and revealed some of the inspiration to his mad ramblings.

When I speak, I like to speak powerfully,” Wyatt said. “I like feeling behind my words. I just don’t say things. Everything I say has a piece. Martin Luther King Jr., I’ve studied a lot of his work. Just the way he was able to speak, and the power he gives us is really incredible. In my opinion he is the greatest speaker of all-time. There are so many that I’ve studied and idolized. It’s deep for me…

Wyatt also talked about the controversy behind some of his promos and whether he walks the PG WWE line behind the microphone.

I don’t think I toe the line,” he said. “The things I say sometimes can be offensive to some, but for the ones that can figure it out and solve the puzzle or the labyrinths I put out there, they deserve it. Here is your cake. Here is the prize because there are so many complexities. I like to throw curveballs.”

Wyatt also credits the guy who ironically is blamed for holding back many careers for pushing the Wyatts and championing their push.

I can tell you Hunter [Triple H] was very instrumental in the upbringing of the Wyatts. He saw something in us that we saw. We were so attached to it that we were dying to make it work and to get it out there.

Hunter saw the same thing. From the first glance, people are just comparing us to hillbillies. I’ve heard ‘Deliverance’ and all kinds of things, but they were missing that underlying factor. Hunter was able to see that because we are more complex in the way we speak if you listen to the message behind it. You’re not looking at three Neanderthals. You’re looking at three very smart, capable athletes. Hunter was able to see it.”

Again this is a bit or irony here as Hunter has a reputation among many of Wyatt’s fans as being the guy responsible for holding back talent and squashing careers. According to Bray if not for Hunter, who knows how his career in the WWE would have played out. Something to think about the next time you accuse Trips of being the King of Buriers.

Finally, Bray has had a stellar 2014 but he has high aspirations for 2015. He had a prominent feud with John Cena which included a WrestleMania match as well as a recent feud with former undisputed champion Chris Jericho. So where does Wyatt go next? Wyatt sees one man and one match as the ultimate goal and that goal is the Dead Man.

Bray Wyatt versus The Undertaker would be the greatest I could accomplish,” he said. “Just being there side-by-side with him. I get the comparisons, but we are also very different. He is ‘The Deadman.’ He will always be ‘The Deadman,’ and I’m Bray Wyatt. When or if, or when we shall meet, it will be every bit of everything I thought it would be.

Unfortunately I don’t think that’s going to happen but nobody would have ever predicted a Cena vs. Wyatt WrestleMania match at this time last year. Overall this is a great interview which you owe yourself to check out over at http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/fighting/article2529425.html
