Bray Wyatt‘s new character may be a hit with the audiences worldwide, but it hasn’t come without controversies. It was reported yesterday that WWE is planning to tone down the Fiend character for TV audiences because of the graphical content that may not be suitable for a family show.

Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda reported that Wyatt’s absence from RAW last week was due to WWE planning a more family-oriented character for the former WWE Champion. However, Bray Wyatt appeared on RAW this week and attacked Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, similar to how he attacked Kurt Angle and Mick Foley in the recent weeks.

Replying to a tweet by PWStream, Bray Wyatt tweeted that those rumors are false, and the account must find new informants. Wyatt was quite straightforward in refuting this rumors, and basically confirming that the Fiend character is here to stay for the foreseeable future.

Wyatt attacked yet another Hall of Famer (Lawler) this week in order to reaffirm his newfound Legend Killer persona. After attacking the King, Wyatt asked for his forgiveness on Twitter. He believed that what he did was fun, and was perfectly done.

Wyatt did something similar with Kurt Angle and Mick Foley after attacking them, and thanked Foley apparently for his finisher, The Mandible Claw.

Bray Wyatt’s nasty gimmick of taking down former superstars is quite different from the other things that are presented on RAW and SmackDown, and the whole segment has a completely different vibe from the usual segments.

Wyatt is currently not in a feud with any superstar after defeating Finn Balor comprehensively at SummerSlam last Sunday. He was challenged by Aleister Black recently on Twitter, but nothing has materialized yet between the two dark individuals.

The Fiend taking down legends is surely a fun activity for the fans as well, and hopefully, it continues in the upcoming episodes.
