On Tuesday night, Bray Wyatt (flanked by Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman) appeared on ESPN’s weekly “Off the Top Rope” interview segment (this time hosted by old friend Todd Grisham instead of the usual Jonathan Coachman), appearing live via spooky dimly-lit room, as is his custom. The interview was very much in character, but Wyatt still managed to let his charisma shine through, particularly when he noted that no one in the Wyatt Family has ever struggled with picking up the ladies.
At the outset of the interview, Wyatt was asked about his WrestleMania opponents and he made sure to further his feud against The Rock, the seeds of which were sown at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.
“The Rock is the biggest star in the world, period. It was a [big] moment for me, as well. Especially walking out, and there was over 100,000 Fireflies [in the crowd]. That, again, was something of beauty. But being out there with The Rock, it was … cool, I guess I would say. I would also have to admit that we have unfinished business. And if he’s watching, if he’s listening … Rock, I would love to finish it. At WrestleMania 33.”
So there you have it, everyone. The gauntlet has been thrown for next year’s WrestleMania. Elsewhere, Bray sang the praises of NFL megastar J.J. Watt. He claimed the Texan was his favorite non-WWE athlete and called him a “killer.” He also said if Watt could grow a beard, he would be a welcome member of the Wyatt Family. START FANTASY BOOKING NOW.
Let’s all prepare for WrestleMania 33, where J.J. Watt and The Rock will beat all four members of the Wyatt Family in 12 seconds.
