Sad to hear Bray Wyatt is reportedly in a cast for his ankle. Do you think this may hurt any momentum he had ? Even losing, he still got to be in a marquee match with the greatest ever, Undertaker. Do you think it would benefit Wyatt to cut promos while injured? Maybe manage someone, such as Luke Harper to help elevate a very underrated talent ??
Wyatt merely sprained his ankle and he will be fine and working with and subsequently losing to the Undertaker enhanced Wyatt’s career.
Alex Szollo Asks:
Dear Mr. Ross, My name is Alex Szollo, I’m 24 years old, I live in Timisoara, Romania, and to say I’m a WWE fan would be the understatement of an era. WWE has been providing me with unforgettable moments for about 8 years now. It all started with a late-night channel-surfing session, which led me to an Undertaker entrance. I was instantly hooked. I’d never seen anything like that before. The music, the slow, imposing walk, the empty stare, the bad-ass Western look…everything was mesmerizing. I don’t exactly remember the opponent, but I know for certain that once I saw his entrance, I knew I’d just found my next hero. Born with Cerebral Palsy, I’ve always been fascinated with people who stand out, who are far from typical. And I’m sure you don’t need my opinion to know that for a fact. I’m writing to you to share a very special moment which I believe I owe to the Undertaker, as well as to ask you a question. Back in my last year of high-school, about 5 years ago, for the high-school Halloween celebration, I chose to dress up like the Undertaker, and “cut a promo” (completely improvised at that time),addressing my condition, my Cerebral Palsy, as if it were an opponent I was playing mindgames with before a big match. After the promo, in which I basically outlined my struggle with CP in a style reminiscent of The Undertaker’s eerie speeches, I had my very own larger-than-life moment, which came completely out of the blue. I asked the people who were supporting me to let me attempt 5 steps on my own(I can pull off about 5-10 steps unassisted), and those attempted 5 steps on that day became 15, 20, 25, until I ended up crossing all 3 of the corridors between the English department room and our main classroom. To this day, it remains the longest distance I’ve ever walked, and, as I said, I feel like I owe it to The Undertaker. Ever since that moment, I’ve been wanting to meet him(both in person and in-character) and personally thank him for the huge inspiration he’s been in my struggle with my condition. I also want you to know that you were a HUGE part of the excitement generated by Taker’s matches, in my view. Nothing captures the drama of a Taker match like the trademark “Bah Gawd! Tombstone Piledriver!” Ever since that epic, larger-than-life moment, I’ve been wanting to meet Taker(in character and in person), and thank him for the tremendous inspiration he’s been all these years, and perhaps get a reaction from him regarding my “promo”, which, oddly, I remember almost word-by-word. With his retirement looming, I don’t like my odds of making it across “the pond”, as the Brits say, in time for this larger-than-life meaning. How do you think I should go about it? Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did in WWE. You made it exciting for this skinny, shaky, jumpy Cerebral Palsy nerd, and I want you to know that you’re my all-time favorite announcer. Why? Because no one made me believe the stories in the ring better than you have. My proverbial hat is off to you! Boomer sooner! Alex Szollo, avid WWE, Undertaker, and Good Ol’JR fan.
Thanks for the email Alex and much respect to you for being such an Undertaker fan. Keep battling.
JR’s correct in saying working with Taker enhanced Wyatt’s career. The fact that Bray Wyatt by himself carried the build only made that enhancement stronger. I hope Alex’s battle ends in a successful win for him.
