On the most recent episode of his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T shared his perspective on Bray Wyatt and the storyline involving his return to WWE at Extreme Rules last year.

According to Booker T, Wyatt has failed to deliver performances in the ring that would advance his play and make the audience more invested in his stories.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the need for a satisfying match conclusion to the Wyatt stories: “This Firefly Funhouse thing and the magic, you can only take it so far. The fans are looking to see a good match. That’s what this business has been predicated on since day one, storylines is always been great, but the payoffs.”

On what Wyatt is lacking to achieve significant success: “I think that’s the problem that Bray Wyatt has had, being that magical creature and not being able to go out there and, I wouldn’t even call them five-star matches or anything like that, but just really good matches. I think that’s what’s held Bray Wyatt back more than anything.”

On the need for better in-ring action from Wyatt: “I think he’s worked some good enough guys to go out and have some memorable matches to where you go, not only is he one dimensional, two dimensional, oh man, this guy is three dimensional, he takes you everywhere. I think that’s what’s missing with Bray.”

In a recent appearance appearance on the Ten Count podcast, WWE alumni Hornswoggle recalled his fond memories of his match against El Torito at WWE’s Extreme Rules 2014 pay-per-view event.

Hornswoggle referred to the match as the biggest highlight of his WWE career, remembering receiving a standing ovation from those in the Gorilla position.

On his attitude before the match: “It was supposed to be presented, I believe, as a joke and a comedy thing, but we had the best match on the card that night including Evolution vs. The Shield. We killed it and I know we did, and I’m going to tell everyone we did. That might not have been a good move on my end, but I didn’t care at that point.”

On the quality of the performance: “It was the greatest thing I’ll ever do in my career. That was the first time I ever got a standing ovation in Gorilla, including Vince and Triple H, so that was a pretty cool thing. That’s all I needed.”
