It’s noted that Vince McMahon wasn’t the biggest fan of working alongside Bray Wyatt backstage – but Triple H seemingly couldn’t get enough of him!
Bray Wyatt was shockingly released from his WWE contract on 31 July 2021, ending a decade-plus tenure with the company. Many were quick to jump to question why, exactly, he’d been cut, considering his stance as a top WWE Superstar.
Vince McMahon famously despised working with the creatively gifted ex-WWE Champion but as for Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, he loved every minute of it. Speaking to BT Sport’s Ariel Helwani ahead of Clash At The Castle, ‘The Game’ praised Wyatt for being one of the most creative minds in the business:
“One of the most (…) I mean this in the best way possible (…) crazy, creative people I’ve ever been around. [His] mind just never stops thinking of creative. But it’s like being in a whirlwind of stuff, so without the harness and without somebody to point the tornado, it’s just all over the place [laughs]. He’s a victim of his own mind and his creative, and it’s just everywhere.”
Triple H elaborated, explaining how much he loved working with Bray Wyatt during his time in NXT:
“But I loved working with him. I loved working with him down there [NXT] and even just being a small part of (…) as he was creating the Bray Wyatt character, and moments of just helping to harness his (…) I have no idea where some of the concepts and thoughts come from in his head, like some crazy place, but they’re wonderfully crazy.”
Bray Wyatt has remained a free agent ever since his WWE release. It’s believed he could make his anticipated comeback this weekend, either at WWE Clash At The Castle or at AEW All Out. Tony Khan has teased some big surprises for the latter – Wyatt would certainly fit the bill.
‘The Eater of Worlds’ last competed at WrestleMania 37, losing to Randy Orton. His appearance on the following Monday’s Raw was his final televised appearance for the company.
