WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt returned to the company at the Extreme Rules premium live event. His arrival turned out to be a huge boost in viewership of the mage show which speaks a lot about his impact.
Wyatt has portrayed several gimmicks over the years in WWE and has nailed them to perfection. But the success was a result of the hard work and the constant efforts he put in to get better at his trade. Speaking to Bill Apter of Sportskeeda Wrestling, Ricky Steamboat, who worked closely with Bray Wyatt during their time at FCW, discussed the 35-year-old’s elite mentality.
“I liked the way how he [Bray Wyatt] thought because he was always thinking about how he could get better. And he wasn’t the type of guy to give up. I don’t know about now, but then [during his time in FCW],” said Ricky Steamboat
Further in the interview, Steamboat revealed that Wyatt had two of his character pitches rejected by the promotion.
“He [Bray Wyatt] could adapt. He got called up, and I don’t remember his first couple of characters, but the higher-ups didn’t like the character, so they sent him back down. So he came up with the idea to be a different character, and he would be called back up to take a look, but they didn’t like it, so they sent him back down. Then I think it was around the third time when he did this Lousiana type swamp guy, Bray Wyatt, and that clicked,”
