Bray Wyatt Career:
Bray Wyatt is the master of psychological warfare and probably one of the greatest modern era performers, it is hard to imagine that he started his career in the WWE with a below-average character called Husky Harris.
Bray made his in-ring debut in dark match on the February 5, 2009 episode of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), defeating Brian Jossie. Rotunda made his television debut in April 2009, using the name Alex Rotundo. Wyatt later changed his name to Duke Rotundo.In June 2009, he began teaming with his brother Bo.
Wyatt’s wrestling history began at Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) in April 2009, where he was part of a tag team with his brother Bo Dallas. The duo won the FCW tag-team Championship.
They successfully defended the championship against Dylan Klein and Vance Archer and the team of Curt Hawkins and Heath Slater. At the FCW television tapings on November 19, The Rotundo Brothers lost the championship to The Dude Busters.
WWE saw some talent in the elder Rotunda, and hence, he was rolled out in the second season of NXT, which worked on a reality show-like platform back then. This is where he was given the in-ring name Husky Harris, while current AEW wrestler Cody Rhodes was his pro.
On June 2, 2010, he joined NXT under the name Husky Harris, with Cody Rhodes as his WWE Pro.
Harris failed to impress many during his stay in NXT and was eliminated before the finals. But, it was not as if Husky Harris didn’t taste any success.
Perhaps his most important WWE moment came when he along with Michael McGillicutty (now Curtis Axel), interfered in a match between Wade Barrett and John Cena, while hiding their identities. The stipulation required Cena to join the Nexus if he lost, which he did, owing to this interference.
Harris and McGillicutty became part of the Nexus, giving Harris his main roster debut. But, as the Nexus folded, Harris had no direction on the roster and he was soon sent back to FCW.
It seems like this was what was required for Rotunda to undergo a Renaissance. Bray Wyatt reappeared on NXT after FCW was remodeled as the yellow brand in 2012. However, this time, he debuted with a cult-leader character called Bray Wyatt.
Under this persona, Wyatt was given two disciples in the form of Eric Rowan and Luke Harper. It was as if he was a completely different person with his mic skills going up to a supremely intelligent level.
The new NXT awarded talent, and the Wyatt Family was a smash hit. Their spooky inferences with references to demon mythology were interesting to the audiences of Full Sail University. They soon won the NXT Tag Team Championships. Wyatt Family was promoted to the main roster with their success in just one year.
Since then, Bray Wyatt has attracted audiences no matter what hat he has dawned. His cult personality saw him feuding with the likes of John Cena, Daniel Bryan, The Undertaker, Randy Orton, the Demon Kane, Chris Jericho, and many more.
Wyatt never got adequate championship success even after being a fan-favorite,. This is when he showcased his creative potential as he changed his character yet again in 2019.
Bray Wyatt began airing vignettes where he was shown as a children’s show host like Mr. Rogers who had imaginary friends. But, this layered character had a dastardly alter-ego known as the Fiend which was built by the WWE as an unbeatable personality.
Bray Wyatt has already achieved huge success under this persona and continues to impress the audiences.
After a break from summer 2018 to spring 2019, Wyatt returned with a change in character. Wyatt started hosting the “Firefly Fun House” where he would perform as a friendly-mannered children’s television show host. Soon after, Wyatt debuted a masked alter-ego called The Fiend, who had supernatural characteristics and remembers all the wrongdoings that others had inflicted on Wyatt in the past.
Wyatt has been praised for his character work. Readers of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter voted him as the Best Gimmick twice; winning the award in 2013 and 2019.
Bray Wyatt run as The Fiend saw him win the Universal Championship twice before dropping to Roman Reigns in 2020. Wyatt was involved in a storyline with Randy Orton and Alexa Bliss, where the latter was his helper. But, Bliss turned on Wyatt during WrestleMania last year and he went on a break after his loss to Orton.
At Fastlane on March 21, 2021, The Fiend made his return as a tweener with a new grotesque look with charred skin and attire as a result of being set on fire, aiding Alexa Bliss during her intergender match against Randy Orton, attacking Orton with a Sister Abigail and allowing Bliss to gain the pinfall victory.
On the next episode of Raw on April 12, 2021, Bliss declared that she no longer needed him, while Wyatt’s cheery Firefly Fun House persona also returned in a Firefly Fun House segment, stating he was looking forward to a fresh start.This marked Wyatt final appearance in WWE, as he was released on July 31, 2021, thus ending his 12-year tenure with the company.
Many had predicted him jumping ship to Tony Khan’s AEW during the past year.
After weeks of cryptic clues, Wyatt returned to WWE at Extreme Rules on October 8, 2022.
But, Wyatt has now returned to the company. For weeks, vignettes about a certain White Rabbit were being played in arenas where RAW, SmackDown and WWE Live Events were being held and now we know who it was meant for.
Bray Wyatt Wife:
Bray Wyatt married Samantha, with whom he has two daughters, in 2012. She filed for divorce in 2017, claiming that he had been having an affair with WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman. He filed an injunction stating that Samantha had made “defamatory statements” about him in order to ruin his reputation.
During the divorce proceedings, she demanded that he pay her $15,000 per month in spousal and child support. They were eventually forced into mediation at a family practice in Tampa, Florida.
Bray Wyatt and Offerman were later revealed to be together, and have two children: a son named Knash (born May 18, 2019)whose godfather is wrestler Braun Strowman, and a daughter named Hyrie (born May 28, 2020). Rotunda and Offerman became engaged on April 28th, 2022.
