The wrestling world continues to mourn the loss of WWE superstar, Bray Wyatt. A famous Hollywood star recently shares details of how the talent was thinking about breaking into the movie business.
Bray Wyatt’s Movie Plans
The WWE superstar passed away on Thursday, August 24th, with the news being announced on X by Triple H. Since, tributes have been pouring in from fellow wrestling colleagues and fans.
Former WWE writer and movie star, Freddie Prinze Jr. recently talked about his working relationship with the wrestling legend during Wrestling with Freddie. He spoke about his work run-ins with the talent.
Freddie also mentioned in detail about how the WWE superstar was interested in a carny role for a movie he was planning. As Prinze put it, the star was a “creative” and a “special human being”.
Prinze notes that they weren’t close friends but working acquaintances. The two had tremendous respect for each other.
Prinze notes that the star was the last “attraction” wrestler in the industry, especially with The Undertaker retired. Freddie notes there is no one that can fill this void he’s left behind.
Freddie is not wrong. Leaving this world at the age of 36 feels far too soon.
It’s undeniable that the WWE talent did a lot in wrestling. However, there was so much more he was set to do.
He entered the company in February 2009, debuting in a dark match for Florida Championship Wrestling. The talent entered the main roster as Husky Harris in 2010, working in the Nexus stable.
He eventually rebranded into the cult persona he’s best known for in 2012, when he went back to a newly packaged NXT. The Wyatt Family would make its way to the main roster, some months later.
Over the years, he became a two-time Universal Champion, WWE Champion, and two-time WWE Tag Team Champion. He also added layers to his character over recent years with the reveal of The Fiend and his Firefly Funhouse persona.
