The director working with Bray Wyatt to produce the Firefly Fun House segments says Wyatt is right on par creatively with some of the highest-profile actors he’s ever worked with. He called him a performer who teeters the edge of creative genius and insane and that it’s been a joy to watch him work.
Adding that he can’t wait for the WWE Universe to witness what comes next, Jason Baker has been helping Wyatt create videos and a character, unlike anything WWE fans have seen in years. WWE reintroduced Wyatt in to a “children’s” show titled Firefly Fun House, a show it seems Wyatt will be doing weekly. It’s a hybrid of Blue Clues meets Norman Bates with Wyatt seemingly inviting kids into his twisted and ever-increasing tormented world.
The first segment introduced fans to Mercy the Buzzard, Abby the Witch and Wyatt himself who is a new and improved version of the old Wyatt character. To signify that the Wyatt fans knew was dead and gone, the new Wyatt cut his likeness up with a chainsaw.
Baker appeared on the Wrestling Reality podcast and talked about working with Wyatt. “Bray’s great man. He’s intense. He’s always thinking, and then he’s thinking past what he’s thinking. That man is… what’s that old saying? The razor’s edge between genius and insanity?”
Explaining that every idea you throw at Wyatt, he throws eight back, collaborating with Wyatt is an enjoyable experience. Baker added, he’s worked with Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, and Will Smith and Wyatt is on par creatively with those guys.
What’s Next For Firefly Fun House?
With Wyatt heavily involved in creative aspects of this character and the videos and with WWE investing heavily in a Hollywood director to get the best out of Wyatt, this seems to be a long-term play for WWE.
Short-term, fans can expect to see more interesting, unique and potentially creepy videos with insights into what this character will be all about.
