Bray Wyatt was one of the most talked about Superstars in all of WWE for years, but the former Universal Champion was released from the company and has yet to return to wrestling.
Matt Hardy previously worked with Bray Wyatt in WWE where they won the Raw Tag Team Titles together. During a recent episode of The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast Matt discussed Wyatt’s relationship with Vince McMahon and indicated that it was strange at times.
“Windham (Bray Wyatt) has always had a very strange relationship with Vince, very strange, like, I almost felt like Vince looked at him like a son in some ways. When he would do things that he liked, he would love him and he would really give him everything that he could possibly give him. He would bend over backwards to try and accommodate him. But then when he did something he didn’t like, he hated, like he was going to lock him away for good.”
“It was almost like a really weird, a really strange and different duality that Vince shared with Bray. When he liked him or loved him, he was all about him. But when he disliked him, oh my god, it was really bad and he would like punish him and insult him. To me, it was so strange. It was almost like a parent.”
