He appeared on Freddie Prinze Jr's podcast Wrestling With Freddie from iHeart Media's My Cultra Network and revealed that he did do some consulting work for WWE and came up with plenty of Bray Wyatt ideas when he was on tour with Pizza Underground.

"There were times where I wanted to, just find six months of my life at the very least to go in there and stuff," Culkin said about potentially joining the WWE creative team. "I do regret not doing that. Now that I'm a dad, I barely have time to pee. I just never got around to it. There was always something. Next thing I know, I'm on the road in a pizza band. I came up with some really great Bray Wyatt story angles in my room in Paris. They called me up for consultation kind of stuff. Just 'what do you think will make the brand better?' I think they might have done one or two things. I'm not saying I came up with it or nothing, but at the same time, 'oh, there you go.' I was just like, 'Hey, why don't we make the show slightly different just because one is blue and one is red.' God Bless Kevin Dunn but, 'nope, nope, nope, this is our product.' He's very good at what he does. Far be it from me to criticize what he does. I'm just saying, 'can we do something that is visually different?"

Freddie mentioned that WWE continues to do a lot of the same things, which prompted Culkin to weigh in with his thoughts of the current product.

"No shit. Especially the product now. If I have to see one more fucking, don't get me wrong, I'm actually looking forward to what will be different this time, but if I have to see Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns one more frickin time. That's the thing, they'll do the same pay-per-view back to back. It's always New Day/Usos every fricken card. I understand that their roster isn't as deep as it was a year ago. They've cut like 86 wrestlers in the past calendar year. You don't really have this rich variety that you might have had before. Even then, how many times can we watch the same match over and over? Recently, it was Survivor Series and the two before that were virtually the same card. What the fuck is going on?" he questioned.

During the podcast, FPJ once again brought up the idea of running his own promotion with Culkin involved. You can learn more about FPJ wanting to start his own promotion by clicking here.
