Bray Wyatt has been through a lot of ups and downs since joining the WWE main roster, but he completely reinvented himself when he introduced the world to The Fiend in 2019.
The Fiend managed to pick up some momentum, and Wyatt has captured the Universal Title twice since The Fiend debuted, but not everyone is a fan of the presentation.
Jim Cornette recently shared his thoughts on The Fiend character during an episode of Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru and he held nothing back when he said “it’s garbage.”
“This whole thing is just… probably the worst. And over the last year and a half or two years, imagine how much that takes in. As probably 50% of it has involved The Fiend. Every time we see him it’s garbage. It’s goofy f**king puppets appearing out of nowhere. It’s supernatural bull**it, black sludge vomit, being killed in front of us and then just getting up or whatever.”
“No, it’s totally unsalvageable. That’s not wrestling anymore. So I don’t know what the f**king attraction is that anybody would be entertained by this horses**t. But no I wouldn’t book The Fiend except possibly a long stay at the mental institution. I mean the whole thing, the Firefly vignettes, the whole thing is an embarrassment to the business.”
The Fiend was recently defeated by Randy Orton after Alexa Bliss turned on him, and Bray Wyatt appeared in a Firefly Fun House segment the next night on Raw and teased that a new season is coming for the show.
Stay tuned for updates.
