"Wrestling is not a love story, it’s a Fairy Tale for masochists. A comedy for people who criticize punchlines."
This past weekend, the former world champion Bray Wyatt, whose actual name is Windham Rotunda, issued a stirring message to his followers on Twitter, eloquently expressing the love that fans have for this magnificent world. The Undertaker, All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Ring of Honor, Kane, and even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were all mentioned in the memo.
He wrote: ‘Wrestling is not a love story, it’s a Fairy Tale for masochists. A comedy for people who criticize punchlines. A fantasy most can’t understand, a spectacle no one can deny. Lines are blurred. Heroes are villains. Budgets are cut. Business is business.
‘But it can also be a land where Dead men walk. Where Honor makes you Elite. Where Demons run for office. And Rock bottom is a reason to rejoice.
‘WOOOOO! It’s an escape. A reason to point the blame at anyone but yourself for 2-3 hours. An excuse to be a kid again, and nothing matters except the moment are in.
‘Wrestling is not a love story, it’s much more. It’s hope.
‘And in a world surrounded in hate, greed and violence, a world where closure may never come. We all know a place that has hot and cold hope on tap. For better or for worse. (sic)’ Fans have praised the statement, and some have seen it as a hint that Wyatt isn’t finished with wrestling despite being released from WWE little over a year ago and having recently worked on his first feature film in Hollywood.
Since his release last year, Bray Wyatt (now Wyatt 6/Windham 6) hasn’t participated in any wrestling promotions. Although he is a fantastic wrestler, to effectively showcase his ingenuity, WWE’s size is necessary. According to some stories, Wyatt’s issues were mostly caused by creative disagreements. Many superstars now have more creative flexibility than they had when Vince McMahon was in control of creative, thanks to Triple H.
To see Wyatt with a solid booking and creative flexibility would be really intriguing. The gifted wrestler has been urged to return to the industry by fans. However, he was preoccupied with a secret film. Having said that, this has undoubtedly generated a lot of curiosity about Bray Wyatt’s future endeavours. There is practically no question that he will succeed if he rejoins WWE. However, it will be fascinating to watch how he is portrayed if he decides to make his debut in another campaign.
