When Bray Wyatt and The Wyatt Family first arrived on the main roster people couldn’t but pay attention and it seems that the fans were hanging on to every word of Bray’s promos. It’s safe to say that Wyatt was one of the more interesting characters to perform in WWE over the last decade, but according to a former WWE star his gimmick was stolen.
Rory McAllister of The Highlanders recently appeared on Jofo in the Ring and he talked about his partner Robbie McAllister coming up with a gimmick that was similar to the Bray Wyatt character which was later used on WWE programming.
“That was Robbie’s idea, 100 percent. Because he went over and worked in the UK and stuff, and he was dressed up the same way, looked the exact same. He went to WWE and, all of a sudden, after they told him not to go back, here comes Bray Wyatt doing Robbie’s whole schtick.”
The Highlanders performed in WWE from 2006 to 2008, but Robbie McAllister noted during an Insider’s Edge interview that he sent WWE some ideas as he was trying to get back to the company.
“I sent them some stuff that I believe one of the things I sent them, Bray Wyatt became out of it. I was coming up with my own ideas to get there, but I didn’t get back.”
