Professional wrestling legend and two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion and a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion recently discussed about the comparisons between Bray Wyatt and the Undertaker.
Bray Wyatt is not only one of the best characters in WWE right now but in the entire world of professional wrestling. Throughout his WWE career he went through three gimmick changes, all of them were unique and just fantastic. His Fiend character had been loved by the fans most.
Booker T Makes Comparison Between Bray Wyatt And The Undertaker
Recently he made his much awaited return where he is not been seen carrying his previous fiend gimmick. He has been given a completely new gimmick and it had been really fun to watch so far. Last year he was shockingly released by WWE, finally he made his much awaited return at the Extreme Rules pay per view event recently, and from the very first day he had been outstanding.
The gimmick of Bray Wyatt is often compared with the legendary gimmick of the Undertaker. This is not the first time a gimmick is compared to the Undertaker’s one. Most of the times, wrestlers with dark gimmick have been compared to the Dead Man. Even his half brother Kane was compared to him to some extent.
Is the gimmick of Bray really similar to the Undertaker? If so, we have to compare each and every dark gimmick with the Undertaker, which is absolutely not right. The gimmick of Bray is pretty much unique and fans loved it throughout. But we can definitely say that Bray Wyatt is a great successor to the Undertaker.
Booker T who is a former five time WCW World Heavyweight champion recently spoke on latest Hall Of Fame podcast where he discussed about the comparisons between Bray Wyatt and the Undertaker. He said;
“I loved a lot of the backstage segments, the interview segments. Always was captivating and made me feel a certain way … but then some of the stuff kind of wasn’t the wrestling that I wanted to see. I thought that Bray Wyatt could really do both, be that storyteller and be able to draw you in just by the way he speak to you, but then when he go out in the ring, his in-ring performance matches that same intensity.”
“The Bray Wyatt character for me is the character that I would be really, really trying to lean into, just because that character has got legs, it could go forever. That’s what made The Undertaker work, he was The Undertaker, but he was still beatable, he was still a guy that could go out and his shoulders could get pinned to the mat in certain situations.”
