WWE star Bray Wyatt on fans cheering him, his inspirations, and why it took time for the Wyatt Family act to click in NXT

Chad Dukes Wrestling Show interview with Bray Wyatt
Host: Chad Dukes
Interview available at Chaddukeswrestlingshow.com

On his past year with the Wyatt Family on the main roster: "This ride this last year has just been a roller coaster, man. The intensity is off the charts. I measure it a lot by the reception from the people and the fans. So NXT, it took people a while to understand, you know, what exactly you're trying to portray because everyone wants to immediately look at us and they go, 'Deliverance' and all these foolish hillbilly... what's the word I'm looking for?...Stereotypes, exactly, but we're highly intelligent, you know, more like some kind of hillbilly assassins.

"When we started in NXT, we go from that reaction to...I actually was there just last night, and when I walkout there, I just, I see the people ignite. I do the entrance, and I say 'NXT, we're home' and they believe it and I believe it, how real it is, and that's sort of how it's been. It starts out, I'm in no man's land not knowing what's going to happen from day to day, how the people are going to receive me, until now, I see in their eyes they understand. They see me for what I want them to see me as, it's truly truly a wonderful feeling, man."

Wyatt on his inspirations: "When we looked at ourselves we never said we wanted to be the next this, we don't want to be the next that. We saw the Shield when they were coming up and we were really angry that the Shield was coming up, because as talented as those guys were, we were already a three-man group. We already existed. We were already battle tested and ready to roll and I think that's why our involvement with them was so special because it was a real affliction.

"As far as inspiration, I'm inspired by everything. I'll watch a homeless man walk down the street with a crazy little limp and the next thing I know I pick it up. And that's the thing though, I don't sit down with a pen and paper, and I don't say, 'Hey I'll walk out and say this on Monday Night Raw.' I feel it out there, you know man.

"I start out with a little point that I want to get across and wherever my brain takes me is wherever I go in those promos. It's not something made up, the ideals are not made up, and everything is real to me. Everything I say it's so passionate, it's just real, it's what I really think of the world, what I really think of society and heroes, and all those people that I have a lack of respect for, it's all real images that pop up in my head in sequential order. Boom-boom-boom-boom, and they just flow out of me as if it's not even me talking but something else."

On the positive crowd reactions: "I feed off the energy. I don't care what noise that they're making as long as they're making noise. It makes it real; it makes it real to me. If they were sitting down and they were quiet and not making any noise then I'd be worried. But as long as they're loud and they're into what I'm doing it makes me more into what I'm doing."
