Bray Wyatt Discusses Working With John Cena, Says Cinematic Matches Should Be Finite

Bray Wyatt has used the empty arena to his advantage, creating two separate cinematic matches with a similar theme, but different settings.

At WrestleMania, Wyatt battled John Cena in the Firefly Fun House, which was more of a career retrospective than a wrestling match.

Speaking to ESPN Africa, Wyatt discussed what it was like working with Cena.

"John's such a sweet guy, isn't he? What a sweet guy that John Cena is. What a sweet, sweet guy. I've been through so much with John Cena, you know, it's amazing to me to see him, you know, from the star he always was turned into this gigantic movie star. And John is very much the type of person you have to earn his respect. Because he doesn't just give it, he's very forward that way. So hearing that phrase, for me and Seth [Rollins], it's a big deal because, like I said, John is this huge star. That's a milestone, for me and my legacy, I think it's pretty neat," said Wyatt. "It's pretty wild, really. When I came into the arena, it was like I stepped through a door and then I'm not kidding -- 48 hours, [it] just erased my mind. It was like I was teleported to another place in time. It was pretty wild dude, from what I remember it was, it was pretty wild."

Along with the Firefly Fun House, Wyatt also competed in and helped put together the Swamp Fight against Braun Strowman at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules.

WWE has leaned on cinematic matches during the empty arena era and though Wyatt enjoys them, he doesn't want them to be overdone.

"I think they're fun and all, but like I said, I like being around the people more. And those [matches], they should be select. There should be a few here and there. That's what keeps them special. Especially after the humdinger that Undertaker and AJ Styles put together, because that thing's close to undefeatable. But you know it's something that you get to approach differently, so it's wonderful for your creativity. But they should be finite," he said.

Wyatt is scheduled to defend the Universal Title against Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns in a triple threat match at WWE Payback on Sunday.
