18. Bray Wyatt Reacts To Being The First Person In His Family To Be WWE Champion, Says He Will Last 15 More Years

During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt talked being the first member in his family to win the WWE Championship, how long will his wrestling career last and more. Below are the highlights:

On finally winning the WWE Championship this year:

“I think people expected it of me and I definitely expected it of myself and it was everything that I wanted to obtain. It is huge for me. It has made my life’s work complete.”

On how long does he plan to wrestle:

“There’s a lot of stuff I have to do yet. It’s just winning the World Title was something very important to me and this is something that will cement me. Forever I will be remembered as something special, but my body is ready to roll for another 15 years, so I’m not looking at stopping. I’ve got a lot that I want to do and a lot that I want to achieve. I just know I will last 15 more years. I’ve got nowhere else to go. This is where I belong and as hope would have it that I would last that long. That’s how I see myself.”

On becoming the first person in his wrestling family to become WWE Champion:

“I actually didn’t know that. Paul Heyman told me that. He congratulated me, called me, and told me I was the first one and I didn’t know that. I never really measured my success with titles because I never really had any titles. I was just working hard and trying to be the best me that I can be. But when he told me that, it was a big ‘wow’. Out of all of us, I was the one to do it. I wasn’t expecting that at all.”
