With rumours of Bray Wyatt’s imminent WWE return swirling, Seth Rollins has claimed that it was “difficult to have a story” with the character.
Bray Wyatt left WWE in July 2021 when he was released from his contract to the surprise of many. He last competed in a WWE ring at WrestleMania 37 in the same year when he lost decisively to Randy Orton as The Fiend to end their long-running feud.
In recent weeks, WWE has been running several ‘White Rabbit’ teases on their programmes and at live events. Many onlookers have speculated that these are for Bray Wyatt who could be the latest in a string of stars to return under the management of Triple H.
One WWE star who may be hoping to see a different iteration of Bray Wyatt if and when he does return to WWE is former WWE Champion Seth Rollins. In a new interview with Ariel Helwani on BT Sport Rollins explains why the Bray Wyatt character was difficult to work with for many WWE Superstars:
“The Bray Wyatt character was just difficult. If you look at anybody that worked with the Bray Wyatt character for an extended period of time, they didn’t come out of it better than they went in.”
“It was very difficult to have a story with him where, aside from Randy obviously who killed him, it was difficult for anyone, maybe Daniel Bryan. Bryan may have escaped a little unscathed, but I mean everyone else pretty much met a dire end for their character.”
Bray Wyatt and Seth Rollins last met in a WWE ring in late 2019. At Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia in October of that year, Wyatt – as The Fiend – defeated Rollins to win the Universal Championship.
