It’s something new. When Roddy Piper tried to get into acting, he was told that he was just a wrestler. When Piper was wrestling, he was told he was just acting. While wrestling is built around athleticism, there is also a lot of performing included. Some wrestlers have been able to turn that into an acting career, and now another wrestler seems to be trying to do the same.

According to Fightful Select, Windham Rotunda, formerly known as Bray Wyatt, has been taking inquiries about opportunities in Hollywood for various projects. Rotunda was recently seen on the Warner Brothers property in Burbank, California with Jason Baker, who designed Wyatt’s lamp in WWE. There is no word on where Rotunda will wrestle next, following his release from WWE in July.

Rotunda can do a lot of things. Check out his time in WWE:

Opinion: This isn’t exactly a surprise as Rotunda certainly has a history of putting together some amazing ideas. It could be interesting to see what he comes up with outside of WWE, as it is clear he has a mind for storytelling. At the same time though, he has never been allowed to try anything without WWE and there is no guarantee that it will work. Either way though, it should be interesting to see where he winds up, because the talent is there.

What do you think of Rotunda? Where do you see him going next? Let us know in the comments below.
