Bray Wyatt On Why SD! Live Is Better Than RAW, Working With Undertaker
WWE Superstar and SmackDown Live roster member Bray Wyatt recently spoke with The Daily Mirror to help promote the upcoming WWE tour of the U.K. in November.
During the interview, Wyatt explained why SmackDown Live is a better brand / show than RAW.
“SmackDown is the better show, period. Bottom line. It’s a better show and type of product. All the big dogs are over here on SmackDown. It’s been very, very good for me and very good for everyone on it. We view it as a war you know, it’s a war with Raw and we’re winning. It’s just a better show man.”
Regarding the reigning WWE Champion AJ Styles, Wyatt made it clear that he has his eyes on him, while at the same time pointing out that he considers him a “well-trained veteran” who is “incredible inside the squared circle.”
“Oh of course. And I want to preface this with I respect AJ Styles. He’s a well-travelled veteran, he’s incredible inside the squared circle. He’s impressive. That is true, no-one can deny that. But I fear no man. I only fear God. And AJ is no God. So if and when we do cross paths, I see myself taking that from him, or whoever else has it at the time. My time is coming. I can just feel it in the air and I think WWE fans all around the world can just feel it in the air. My time is coming.”
Finally, “The Eater of Worlds” shared his thoughts on what it was like working with The Undertaker on a grand stage such as WrestleMania. According to Wyatt, he has “never felt so alive” as when he was waiting to lock horns with “The Dead Man” on “The Grandest Stage of them All.”
“Man, I tell you what, watching him walking down that aisle, that ramp, coming to the ring at WrestleMania, was one of the most breathtaking moments I’ve ever experienced. It was, it felt like you have travelled back in time to the Old West and you were about to square off in a gunfight with the baddest gunslinger in town. I think just the aura he brings, man, it’s never duplicated. I have been in there with some real studs like The Rock [at WrestleMania 32 this year] who has that kind of aura, John Cena has his own aura, but The Undertaker, there is no duplicating that. It’s just a feeling that he gives off man, which is just ‘wow’, it’s just real man, and getting ready to square off with him, watching him walk down, I’ve never felt so alive. I couldn’t wait for that bell to ring. Man, what a feeling.”
