Follow the podcast. Bray Wyatt is one of the most interesting performers on the main roster. After debuting back in 2013, Wyatt finally broke through and won his first World Title earlier this year, only to drop it at “Wrestlemania XXXIII”. This continues a bad trend for him at Wrestlemania where Wyatt has appeared four times without actually winning a match. What does Wyatt think of his Wrestlemania appearances?
Wyatt recently appeared on the “Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast” and discussed several topics related to his career with a focus on his Wrestlemania appearances. He also talks about the Wyatt Family and the success of the former members of the team. Here are some highlights with transcription courtesy of Wrestlinginc.com:
On His Wrestlemania XXXII Segment with The Rock
“I was in a very bad place at last year’s WrestleMania, emotionally and physically I was a little beat up. But it was like all that rage an anger is what kind of drove me this year and brought me to where I am now. That’s the thing. I want to be The Rock. I want to be the next Rock. Being in there with him and seeing the energy that he can cause the fans to go through, it’s an amazing thing. But I don’t want to be the guy that gets beat up by The Rock. I want to be The Rock. I want to be better than The Rock.”

And On A Potential Wyatt Family Reunion
“It’s going to be in-and-out forever. I think we are owed our own singles successes and I wish the best for Harper and them. I hope they do great, but I’m always here and we’re always brothers. No one ever stopped being brothers.” Wyatt said, “and that’s the thing. No one ever asks me about Braun [Strowman]. Oh, will Braun ever be back? Of course he will. They always come back. I taught him how to tie his shoes and I taught him how to fly and he won’t forget that.”

Opinion: I know the official line from WWE is that wins and losses don’t matter but at the same time, fans know that Wyatt isn’t likely to win the big matches, especially at Wrestlemania. There’s only so much you can do when the match is going to be one sided and the build feels like a waste of time until we get to the inevitable conclusion.
Do you think Wyatt will ever break through to the top level? Does his record at Wrestlemania matter? Let us know in the comments below.
