Some of you may have gotten some of the inside references on Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House segments but former WWE Superstar Lance Storm says there is much more than what fans are picking up on. He discussed the segments on Figure Four Daily with Bryan Alvarez.
Storm said that he would fast forward through the Firefly Fun House segments but he has recently started watching them and noticed the inside references that appear to be burying WWE.
“I’ve watched a couple and I’m like ‘Oh my God.'” Storm continued, “Correct me if I’m wrong [but] aren’t the writers making fun of Vince McMahon right in front of his nose with these segments? The Firefly Fun House is the WWE. The opening segment is ‘we’re glad you’re a friend, it’s a friendship that will never end’ and Bray keeps doing the ‘let me be the light, I’ll show you the way’ and then all of the skits are all of the inside complaints about the company.”
Storm added, “There was the husky pig that was eating too much and it’s like you’ll never get a push [because] you’re a fat slob. There was the [buzzard] that ate the rabbit and ate up his own to get ahead and was rewarded for it. In the last one that I saw, [Bray] bludgeoned the rabbit with a hammer because he was revealing the secrets on what really happens in the Fire Fun House. It was Dean Ambrose! All of these skits are all of the inside bad stories you hear about WWE. The Firefly Fun House is the WWE! He even has the Hurt and Heal gloves. Back in the day, it was the old joke in WWE that you either get the carrot or the stick. It’s like, he’s got the Hurt and the Heal gloves and it’s depending on which one you get, you either get the carrot or the stick. I don’t know whether Vince realizes it and he’s doing it because he’s thinking it’s inside and no one will get it or whether they think it’s funny but these segments are a burial of WWE.”
Alvarez thinks it’s possible that the people behind the segments think they are creating an insane world without realizing that what they are doing mirrors what happens on the inside of WWE.
Storm added, “The one video I saw, Bray’s hammering a sign on the door and it says ‘abandon all hope, ye who exit here.’ It’s threatening people, if you leave WWE then you can abandon all hope. These skits, if [Vince] realizes what they are, I’m like why would you put them out there? If he doesn’t then are the writers laughing that they are able to get this stuff on television?”
Alvarez believes none of this would be done without McMahon’s approval so it’s either on purpose or the references are inadvertent.
Storm pointed out how he’s worked for WWE so that is why he can see the segments differently, including the Hurt and Heal references.
On the same episode, Storm talked about the time Vince McMahon thought he was dead. In fact, McMahon was apparently so concerned about Storm’s “death” that he left a voicemail for Dave Meltzer. Click here to read the story.
