The Wyatt Family is like the Demonic Version of The Godwinns

In the mid 90's, there was a tag team by the names of The Godwinns managed by Hillbilly Jim. They did get popular in the tag team division and feuded with the likes of Smoking Gunns and the Bodydonnas. Later on, the Godwinns turned heel and one of them, Phineas would later be part of Ministry of Darkness.

So, I thought to myself: "These guys do remind me of today's The Wyatts!" So, I'm wondering if The Wyatts inspiration came from The Godwinns or they are somewhat the demonic version of them. WWE have this thing that they'd rehash gimmicks like Undertaker's American Badass used on Chuck Plumbo.

I wonder if that's the case or I'm digging deeper onto this more than it actually is.

Such an awful comparison that people keep making like they're the first to think of it.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Re: The Wyatt Family is like the Demonic Version of The Godwinns

I remember when a classmate of mine grabbed another one to give him Godwin's finisher, the Slop Drop, on a normal floor and knocked him out cold from it. Good times.

They do resemble each other. Obviously Bray is much deeper about his gimmick and wants to come across as like the family from Texas Chainsaw Massacre more so than random hillbilly hicks. The Wyatts try to borrow a lot from horror movies.

They should walk around with a bucket full of Sister Abigal's blood and give bloodbaths as a satanic ritual to guys they want to join them.

Meh I just thought it's more like The Manson Family, than Texas Chainsaw.

They're both horrible, so sure.

It's an interesting perspective. I am a fan of Bray Wyatt and I felt as though he was partially inspired by Waylon Mercy. You can definitely hear some Jake The Snake Roberts in there as well. Nice thread, I forgot all about the Godwins.

If that's the case, then how long before they're a demonic Southern Justice?

Re: The Wyatt Family is like the Demonic Version of The Godwinns

Godwins were more of a comedic group. The Wyatts are much better workers. Bray's mic work is unwatchably bad. I think both groups suck.
