7 Ups & 8 Downs From One Year Of Bray Wyatt’s Fiend In WWE

Hurt, heal, hurt again...

11 August 2019.

That was the date on which Bray Wyatt's 'Fiend' wrestled his very first match under the nightmarish mask against old foe Finn Bálor. Last year's SummerSlam seems like it happened 10 years ago, never mind one, and a lot has gone down with Bray's monstrous alter ego since he defeated Bálor without breaking a sweat.

He's been part of the most controversially awkward pay-per-view main events in recent WWE history, become the new face of an entire brand as Universal Champion, worked some cinematic magic during testing times for his employer and even kayfabe drowned another man (or so it seemed before the same pairing were programmed together for SummerSlam 2020).

Bray's 'Fiend' has given haircuts, sleepless nights to toddlers, endless reasons to debate his pros and cons on social media, enough Mandible Claws to make Mick Foley grin, and he's helped change some of WWE's biggest characters seemingly for good. The past 12 months have been interesting at best and embarrassing at worst, but they've produced loads of 'Ups' and 'Downs'.

Here's Wyatt's own personal 'Year In Review'...
