The popularity is strong. Over the last few months, few WWE names have received as much attention as Bray Wyatt. Despite only wrestling one televised match in a year, Wyatt has become one of the most talked about performers in the company due to his Firefly Fun House. Wyatt’s new Fiend persona made its in-ring debut at Summerslam and that meant WWE was ready to capitalize.
As announced on WWE.com, a limited edition Wyatt Firefly Fun House box set sold out in about three hours on Monday. Each box contained a limited edition shirt, an autographed postcard, cutouts and a display set, pictures and stickers. There were a total of five hundred boxes available for $39.99 each, many of which are now selling for well over $200 on eBay.

Opinion: I don’t know if it was a love for Wyatt or a love of being able to mark up the prices, but I’m sure WWE is happy with these results. Wyatt has been a very different kind of character since the new persona debuted and that makes for some very interesting segments. It’s no wonder that these sold well, though I can’t imagine anyone believed they would sell this well this fast.
What have you thought of Wyatt’s new character? How far can he take it? Let us know in the comments below.
