Bray Wyatt left behind an entire band of loving family members, friends, and millions of his fans. While the unfortunate event happened a few weeks ago, the effect of this unfortunate tragedy continues to feel fresh. Not only wrestling stars, but even fans all around the world continue to pay homage to the Eater of Worlds in their own unique way.
However, one such fan got an endorsement from the man who was not only close to Bray Wyatt but also played a big part in bringing his creative genius to life.
Who is the “Important Person” of Bray Wyatt’s professional life?
The world was left in utter shock on hearing the news of Bray Wyatt’s passing on the morning of 24 August 2023. The former WWE Universal Champion reportedly died in his sleep after suffering a cardiac arrest. Wyatt reportedly was recovering well for a return to the ring, however, his contractions with COVID-19 led to him developing heart issues ultimately resulting in his demise.
For weeks, we have seen many WWE superstars like Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, Bayley, and LA Knight pay homage to Wyatt. Furthermore, stars of rival competitor AEW and millions of fans also joined to give their respects to perhaps one of the most influential WWE superstars of all time.
However, Jason Baker, the man behind bringing Bray’s popular character ‘The Fiend’ to life decided to acknowledge a mesmerizing tribute for his fallen friend. Baker took to X to give his thoughts on a video posted by a fan on TikTok. The fan showcased incredible body art made on his back featuring every character and insignia of Bray Wyatt’s career.
The body art made by the fan included characters like The Fiend, Alexa Bliss, Uncle Howdy, and Wyatt’s toys from the popular Firefly Funhouse.
Jason Baker and Bray Wyatt’s Long-Standing Friendship
Jason Baker had been a close acquaintance of Bray Wyatt for a long period of time. His company, Callosum Studios was responsible for the creation of the Firefly Funhouse and several of Windham Rotunda’s iconic masks. When Bray made his first WWE exit, the duo collaborated on a horror movie along with a host of projects.
Moreover, he was also involved in the production of Bray Wyatt’s second coming back to the WWE alongside Rob Fee. However, Baker’s work on Wyatt’s return delayed their own collaborative effort’s release as he explained in an interview with Metro.co.uk.
Much like many others, Jason Baker also paid his tribute to Bray Wyatt, posting an unseen video of him on X enjoying some leisure time. It was from the time Baker and Wyatt were in the development stage of The Fiend character and displayed a happy moment that all his fans will cherish forever.
Bray Wyatt may have left us all, but as he always said “This is a friendship that will never ever end” and we along with many other Wyatt fans will continue to keep his legacy alive, who was undoubtedly, one of the greatest WWE superstars of all time.
