Bray Wyatt: Bio
The Superstar known as Bray Wyatt seems to have stepped out of the collective population’s nightmares and into our reality. A man shrouded in mystique, he came to WWE hellbent on sharing his macabre vision.
Doling out countless cryptic messages to the WWE Universe, The New Face of Fear aimed to lead his flock in search of some sort of a higher purpose. From their first appearance, The Eater of Worlds and his followers would not disappoint, exuding an eerie and dangerous presence as they offered a very succinct message to all opposition: “Run!”
In the course of his dark mission, The Man of 1,000 Truths engaged a slew of Superstars in battle, including Kane, John Cena and The Undertaker himself, leaving a lasting impression on any who dared to cross his path. Soon that path would take Wyatt into the dreaded 2017 Elimination Chamber Match, where he survived not only Cena, but also Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, The Miz and Baron Corbin to seize his first WWE Championship.
After a twisted rivalry with Randy Orton on SmackDown LIVE and a bizarre rivalry-turned-partnership with "Woken" Matt Hardy, Wyatt suddenly vanished without a trace. In 2019, Raw and SmackDown began airing several mysterious videos that featured puppets, dollhouses and other random objects in a dark room. For the WWE Universe member who listened closely enough, a faint familiar cackle could be heard in the background.
That malevolent laugh belonged to The New Face of Fear, but when he finally reemerged from the shadows, he did so during the pilot episode of “Firefly Fun House” as a seemingly more lighthearted version of himself. Gone were the ominous messages, sinister stares and promises of suffering and despair. Instead, Wyatt graciously welcomed his fireflies, declaring that everyone could feel safe in his home and introducing the WWE Universe to his new friends: Mercy the Buzzard, Abby the Witch, Rambling Rabbit and Huskus the Pig Boy.
Still, the new-look Wyatt seemed to retain some of his more unsettling (and unstable) characteristics, as evidenced by his willingness to take a chainsaw to a cardboard cutout of his former self and his selection of “sociopath” as the word of the day. When he finally revealed a terrifying alter ego known as The Fiend — complete with a gnarled facemask that would find its way into every WWE fans’ worst dreams — Wyatt made clear that this new nightmare was just beginning.
