Just over a decade since the Bray Wyatt character was born, he remains an enigma, and one of the biggest mysteries of professional wrestling.

His status for WrestleMania 39 was recently thrown into doubt with reports that he’s dealing with a “physical issue.” There’s no word on what this issue is, or when he might be back in action.
