Bray Wyatt is one of the most iconic WWE figures in the company today, and he often finds himself compared to one of the greatest characters in WWE history - The Undertaker.
Taker called it a career earlier this year after suffering his second career loss at WrestleMania at the hands of Roman Reigns, but Wyatt is just hitting his stride and is currently in the prime of his professional wrestling career.
'The Eater Of Worlds' recently did an interview on the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast to discuss his comparison to The Undertaker, and admits that while the darkness that surrounds both he and 'The Deadman's' personas, they are different in almost every other way (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"For me to be compared to The Undertaker is unbelievable. I've been in there with him. I did a WrestleMania against him two years ago. And I did another one against him and Kane. I don't think if you put us side-by-side and watched our work, they're not similar.
"They aren't. It's the dark stuff that kind of brings us together that people want to branch us, but the thing is that we are completely different.
"And I think [pro] wrestling needs that kind of dark entity in it. And I just think that I bring it. I bring it in a completely different way, but it's still that entity that people need.
"They need that part of professional wrestling that kind of takes you out of the elements. It's not two guys in MMA shorts rolling around. It's magic."
As he mentioned, Wyatt wrestled Taker two years ago at WrestleMania 31 from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Wyatt came up just short in that match, however, he challenged Undertaker in a battle of mental warfare leading up to the contest.
'The New Face Of Fear' went on to win his first WWE Championship earlier this year when he defeated John Cena, AJ Styles, The Miz, Dean Ambrose, and Baron Corbin inside Elimination Chamber in February.
He dropped the title to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 33 last month.
