Bray Wyatt has revealed the powerful meaning behind his exchange with The Undertaker on WWE Raw XXX this week.
On Monday night’s special anniversary show, the legendary Hall of Famer had a passing of the torch moment with the Eater of Worlds and now the 35-year-old star has opened up on its significance.
The pair – who faced off at WrestleMania 31 when the Phenom beat the then-rising star – crossed paths again this week after Undertaker came out in his American Badass guise to confront LA Knight.
Wyatt’s rival had called out any legend from backstage after insisting they were living in the past like the Firefly Fun House host, and it was the Dead Man who answered the call.
Knight tried to make a swift escape but found his path blocked by Wyatt, who herded him back down to the ring and into a chokehold from ‘Taker.
However, instead of hitting his signature Chokeslam, the former world champion pushed Knight into a Sister Abigail from Wyatt, who took the chance to lay out his rival days before they face off in a Pitch Black Match at the Royal Rumble on Saturday night.
This moment justified a lifetime of sacrifices for me. A lifetime of people treating my uniqueness like it was a disease. Through all the bad times I never changed myself to fit anyoneâs narrative. Iâm proud of that. Thank you Taker. #SuckItLAKnight pic.twitter.com/nQHYWNq7CL

Before Undertaker left, he shared a moment with the fan favourite and appeared to whisper something to him before leaving in a symbolic moment, and Wyatt has now revealed it meant more than fans realised.
Sharing pictures from last night and their WrestleMania clash in 2013, he tweeted: ‘This moment justified a lifetime of sacrifices for me. A lifetime of people treating my uniqueness like it was a disease.
‘Through all the bad times I never changed myself to fit anyone’s narrative. I’m proud of that. Thank you Taker. #SuckItLAKnight’.
Meanwhile, Undertaker himself suggested the exchange is one that will live on long in the memory of fans and the performers.
He wrote on his own Twitter account: ‘Moments define this industry. This one was special!’
Wyatt returned to WWE in October 2022 after being shockingly fired in the summer of 2021, and he has since reclaimed his position as one of the company’s most popular performers.
WWE’s Royal Rumble airs Saturday night (January 28) at 1am on the WWE Network and BT Sport.
