Erick Rowan talks Bray Wyatt's return to WWE.
After being away from the company for over a year, Bray Wyatt returned to WWE at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in October to a massive reaction. Since then, Wyatt has consistently been a favorite among fans and has seemingly re-established his place at the top of the company's food chain.
Although some fans speculated that Erick Rowan could have returned alongside Wyatt, that has yet to happen. In a new interview with WrestlingNews.co, Rowan was asked if he keeps up with Wyatt's storyline on a week to week basis.
“Ah, I mean yeah I don’t watch often. I’ve watched for certain people but I was sure to, you know, watch his debut and what he said and I think the last time I watched anything that happened was Crown Jewel because I was curious to see what he would do on that show and I was curious to see about Braun and Omos. I’m a big fan of big brawlers colliding, it’s like watching Sheamus and Gunter or Drew [McIntyre] and Sheamus, I watch those."
Rowan also went on to discuss the notion that wrestling fans can sometimes be impatient when it comes to storylines.
"Uh, I mean, it’s a story and I know most wrestling fans don’t have a lot of patience these days but I enjoy… Wrestling has a little something for everybody so it’s nice to be able to turn on a clip a few months down the line and get a quick recap of what’s going on. It’s kind of like watching a soap opera where at least they have stories that happen in between. Maybe you watched on a Monday and then you watch like three weeks down the line and all of this stuff happened but you have to like watch it every day to be clued in on what happened from day to day. Not everybody can watch all the time, so it’s cool to be able to have people go back and use YouTube and social media to go back and just watch clips to see the story live and not actually have to watch on television. I don’t know if that’s good or bad for the business, but it’s cool.”
Wyatt recently returned to the ring at a WWE live event on December 26. To learn more, click here.
