Conflict Reports On WWE Toning Down The Fiend?
Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character has been one of the hottest attractions in WWE. Now, the character might be dialed back in it’s presentation. According to Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda, WWE wants to tone down The Fiend to be “more audience-friendly”.
The Fiend, alter-ego of Bray Wyatt, has been presented as something out of a horror film. His appearance at Summerslam included a new theme and Wyatt lantern head. The lantern being removed is being considered, as well as making Wyatt more of a “special attraction” so he does not appear as often.
On Raw this week, The Fiend did not seem toned down. He came out to the same horror music and attacked Jerry Lawler. Wyatt himself even disputed the claims on social media. Time will tell if The Fiend does get toned down, or if he will continue to terrorize.
