Source: The Miami HeraldThe Miami Herald has published part 2 of their interview with Chris Jericho. Jericho talked about his Battleground opponent Bray Wyatt:
"It's different. It's something nobody's ever seen before. It's a character that he's really dropped into. People believe it's real, and when people believe it's real, they get into it. Same thing as heel Jericho from 2008 and 2009. People wanted to fight me on the streets for real. I was getting in fights with fans. People believed this character was the biggest %$#^& on earth, because that's the way I played it."
"It's like an Academy Award winning actor. When he wins an award, there's a reason for that, because you believed the character. That's what Bray's doing. He dropped into it. He's embraced it. He created it. It's real. So it's something the people haven't seen before, and that's why it's getting over as good as it is."
"[The music] really fits the character. It's a swampy type, groovy, New Orleans Cajun type vibe. It's a little bit creepy, and that's basically what the Wyatts are as well. It's very important to have a good ring song that really matches your character to help you get into that character, before you go on stage. That's very, very important."
