Bray Wyatt recently spoke with Brian Fritz of BetweenTheRopes.com about facing Chris Jericho this Sunday at Battleground. During the interview, Wyatt discussed what the last year has been like since his WWE debut, being a third generation star and when he knew he wanted to be in the wrestling business, the Husky Harris character, expectations and more. You can watch the full interview above, here are some excerpts from the interview:
The last year since he debuted with the WWE:
"It's been a whirlwind. I always expected to be successful. I don't remember being a child and plan on doing anything but what I'm doing right now. I was kind of born to do this and this past year has been rewarding. I like the grind of things. I like to keep my ear to the ground and just keep moving forward. It's been crazy but I expect it to get much crazier as it continues with my career and my growth and a unit especially."
If Bray Wyatt is really him just amplied:
"Right. 100%. I couldn't create something if I didn't feel it. When I say things, when I speak on television, I'm not making stuff up. I'm not like sitting in the back with a notepad thinking 'maybe this will make them think I'm crazy'. That's how I really am you know? My views on this and that, which I really don't want to delve into, but my views are that of the real me. There is no character. I think that's the biggest mistake people think when they approach me, they think 'you're some character you know, I love the character you play'. You don't really know who I am."
If he told people that he will be back after Husky Harris was written off of TV:
"Whatever that person was, Husky Harris, that ain't me. It never was. And I may have said that, I may not have, I don't recall. But I wanted a chance to show everyone who I really was. I'm not my father, I'm not my grandfather, my uncles or my brother even. I am what I am... whoever that person was a few years ago, it was a shell of a man that never really existed at all."
