• Former WWE Wrestler Pitched A Gimmick Similar To The Fiend

While speaking on The Lewis Nicholls Show, former WWE Tag Team Champion Erick Rowan revealed that he once pitched a split personality gimmick, like Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character, for himself to the WWE Creative. He would use different masks to appear as different characters on TV.

Below is what he said:

“I’m obviously a huge fan of split personalities. I love that kind of character. I remember for the longest time, I pushed for myself to have a split personality with different masks. I had like 20 different masks.

I remember I did a Talking Smack once where I tried a split personality character, and next thing I know, we’re the Bludgeon Brothers, but yes, being a fan of that sort of thing like horror movies, it’s cool to see them allow somebody to do that.

I mean yeah it’s frustrating. Everyone has so many different ideas, and they’re not being used. The ideas don’t get used. You get told what you do, and it’s the unfortunate thing about characters today, like not everybody has the same characters. Unfortunately, you can push and try to do what you can, but within the company, again, it’s a publicly traded company.”
