This is 4 years ago. Even then you see the inspiration for "The Fiend."
From everything we've heard most of this stuff is Bray's Brainchild. Doesn't mean he hasn't had help or other ideas along the way. But, what we're seeing now looks like what he always wanted to be. And it's amazing to see.
I don't even think they came up with this, this is too good, this is probably something Bray created himself and they let him go because they are desperate for some viewers.
I may sound exaggerating right now to some, but in my almost 21 years watching pro wrestling, I've seen very few characters with such a very well designed structure, presentation and background, the fiend irradiates it factor, all of it is great, the written of it is great.
This is something you could have put back in 98 along the likes of Taker, Kane and Mankind and probably would have been huge, but sadly it will just something that will pass unadvertised in this shitty era of wrestling or will just be ruined in about no time.
It was Jason Baker, film director.
There's an awesome podcast with him 'Wrestling Reality with Justin Labar', on April 26th. It was done the first week so the guy was scared to say too much and spoil things. But, he helped film a night of the living dead; whichever one took place in Pittsburgh.
Great podcast if you want to hear how they collaborated for the idea.
So you mean to tell me you are going to pretend like you are on this high horse and werent fans of gimmicks like Mankind, Undertaker, etc. STFU dude... this might be the dumbest attempt at being a smug, wrestling purist type. Oh what... how do you want your wrestling, grown ass man crying about gimmicks for an entertainment platform built for kids and teens.
