In an interview with metro.co.uk. former WWE star Mike Bennett (Mike Kanellis) talked about WWE’s development of “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s character in 2019…
“Early on when Bray Wyatt turned into The Fiend, Vince [McMahon] was always high on having Bray lead a group for some reason – he always wanted him to lead a group. We were about a week away from making it happen where me and Eric Young were gonna be part of Bray Wyatt’s group.”
“We were gonna actually be – they were gonna bring to life the puppets. Each puppet was gonna represent an actual person. I don’t remember, there were talks that I was gonna be Sister Abigail and Eric Young was gonna be a buzzard.”
Mike Bennett has revealed an astonishing WWE plan which would have seen him play Sister Abigail on TV. The Ring of Honor star – who faces Jonathan Gresham tonight (July 11) for the Pure Championship at Best In The World – has opened up on one of the more unusual pitches made to him during his time in Vince McMahon’s company.
