Bray Wyatt was once one of the most mysterious and intriguing characters in the WWE, but the mystique around him has suddenly dropped off and fans are losing interest.
Wyatt is one of many in a long wrestlers in his family, his father being Mike Rotunda (IRS), his brother Bo Dallas, his uncles Barry and Kendall Windham, and his grandfather Blackjack Muligan. He begun his own wrestling career in 2009 when he was signed by WWE and sent to their then-developmental territory of Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) before it was rebranded to WWE NXT. His initial gimmick had him going by the name "Husky Harris" and he was soon cast as a member of the second season of NXT.
He made his main roster debut as a member of the Nexus alongside his fellow NXT cast members. Soon after a brief run with them he was written off WWE TV after being punted in the head by Randy Orton on an episode of Monday Night RAW.
Harris was instead sent back to FCW to continue the developmental process and attempted to find a new gimmick that best fit him. In April of 2012 he finally debuted the Bray Wyatt character in the midst of the new NXT rebranding. He would then form The Wyatt Family alongside Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, taking the NXT Tag Team division by storm and creating one of the most iconic factions for its time.
After making their main roster debut The Wyatt Family made quite an impact on the division, with Wyatt soon propelling himself into a great position as a singles competitor. He has competed at WrestleMania against the likes of John Cena and The Undertaker, as well as having won the WWE Championship once.
Over the past few months, however, Wyatt has been booked poorly and hasn't captivated audiences the way he used to. Fans have grown rather tired of him and aren't interested in what he has been doing on WWE TV lately.
One fan took to Twitter to comment on this and WWE Superstar Goldust was quick to jump to Wyatt's defense:
What are your thoughts on Goldust jumping to Wyatt's aid during the recent fan criticism he has been under? Is Wyatt's character starting to get kind of old? Is Goldust right in the fact that fans just need to try and enjoy what WWE is giving them right now?
