On his way to Saturday Night Special Q&A session, Chris Jericho was asked about how he feels about “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. Chris Jericho would say that he really enjoys seeing the character change and called Windham Rotunda, the man behind the character, a very smart man.

“I love 'The Fiend.' I love Windham Rotunda, it's kind of a mouthful of a name. He’s such a great guy and super smart, creative. I think that is why he reminds me a little bit of me, he'll never be the same guy twice because that's the true secret of having longevity in show business. You can't be the same guy. Look at David Bowie or any great actor.”

It wasn't always nothing but love between Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt. Both men squared off at the 2014 Battleground and SummerSlam events, gaining one victory apiece, before culminating their feud in a steel cage match, won by Bray Wyatt on the September 8th, 2014 episode of Raw.

Next for Bray Wyatt is a clash with Braun Strowman for the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam on Sunday, August 23, 2020.
