Booker T holds the mindset that wins and losses shouldn’t be of interest to The Fiend, but mind games should be more of his nature.
On his most recent episode of The Hall of Fame podcast, Booker gave his thoughts on Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton’s WrestleMania encounter, a bout that ran shy of six-minutes and was heavily-panned by viewers as well.
“I said it many, many time and I don’t know if anybody’s hearing me or not — The Fiend’s career is not about wins and losses. I don’t think it should be about wins and losses because I mean, we saw what happened. The Fiend got beat, lights go out, everybody disappeared, so did The Fiend really get beat? Could The Fiend have kicked out? Is The Fiend taking Randy Orton on a ride? What’s going to happen next? ‘To be continued!’ That’s the way I look at it.”
Booker continued, saying it’s more about who The Fiend is as it pertains to Bray Wyatt and even Alexa Bliss rather than the supernatural star accruing wins under his belt.
“I think The Fiend is more character-based than anything, man. I think The Fiend is just to make the story something different as far as The Fiend goes, as far as Bray Wyatt goes, as far as the mixing of those characters. ‘One day I’m happy, one day I’m mad,’ you know? You got Alexa Bliss as well playing this role. Something totally different than she’s done before.
And Booker is well-aware of the extreme difference of viewpoints for fans regarding such a polarizing angle. “I know from the outside looking in, it’s one of those things: either they like it or they don’t.” Despite that, Booker sees a silver lining for both Bliss and Bray.
“But at the end of this thing, Alexa Bliss is gonna come out a better worker, a better student of the game and Bray Wyatt is just working on his craft. That’s the way I look at it.”
