Bray Wyatt on His Nicknames, Going Up Against Randy Orton, Advice for WWE Prospects

Bray Wyatt

WWE Smackdown Superstar Bray Wyatt sat down with “The Springfield News-Leader” to promote this weekend’s live events. The full interview is at this link and below some of the highlights:

News-Leader: So you’re going to wrestle Randy Orton this weekend. In doing my research, it looks like he’s about 7 years older than you, and by WWE Superstar standards, I thought he was a bit of a pretty boy. What’s going to happen when you two meet in the ring?

Wyatt: (Laughs.) Yeah, well, Randy might be a little bit of a pretty boy, but he’s still a dangerous person. I think he’s a 10- or 12-time world champion, you know, and looks can be deceiving here. But I also have a little bit of something behind me. He’s a little damaged right now, he’s perfect for me. I’ll be coming at him full-bore, just like I do everyone else.

Q. You have a lot of nicknames, Bray. I’ve seen “The Eater of Worlds,” “The Man of 1,000 Truths” and “The New Face of Fear.” Was there an “Old Face of Fear” you crushed and defeated to become “The New Face of Fear”?

A. Well, it was, again, all of these were given to me. (Laughs.) They’re all kind of pieces of a puzzle in time. “The New Face of Fear” came as I was going into Wrestlemania with The Undertaker — I was kind of coined that, as almost a passing of the torch, a changing of the guard. The one I’m most attached to is “The Eater of Worlds.” I’ve always liked that one the best because it was given to me by the late great Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes.

Q. Bray, do you have any tips on how to get into the business, how to become a WWE Superstar, for ambitious young kids out there?

A. Oh yeah, man. It’s a long, long, hard road, you know. It’s just a long ride, man. You have to find someone that will teach you, someone valid. And then you just have to keep your nose to the ground and just keep grinding try to find your way, because it doesn’t start out as glamorous. You don’t just train for months and walk out in front of 30,000 people. You gotta swallow your pride a little bit and do high-school gymnasiums and things, until you learn your craft and become something that people will pay to see. It’s a long, hard ride, but if you’re really cut out and qualified to be here, you’ll find your way here. One way or another. And that’s just what it is, man.
