This week on "The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy," Hardy discussed the relationship between Bray Wyatt and Vince McMahon, as well as Bray's overall creativity.

Matt Hardy explaining the relationship between Bray Wyatt and Vince McMahon:

"Windham (Bray Wyatt) has always had a very strange relationship with Vince, very strange, like, I almost felt like Vince looked at him like a son in some ways," Hardy said.

"When he would do things that he liked, he would love him and he would really give him everything that he could possibly give him. He would bend over backwards to try and accommodate him. But then when he did something he didn't like, he hated, like he was going to lock him away for good."

"It was almost like a really weird, a really strange and different duality that Vince shared with Bray. When he liked him or loved him, he was all about him. But when he disliked him, oh my god, it was really bad and he would like punish him and insult him. To me, it was so strange. It was almost like a parent."

Matt talking about the creativeness of Bray Wyatt:

"He's just an out of the box thinker. He's also a very interesting person. Some of the material that he reads and studies is stuff that is just really out of the blue, things that you wouldn't expect."

"He's a very well versed and educated person and he has a lot of interests. I feel like that makes him overly creative in many ways. His thought process of trying to do things new and differently is very unique and very special just to himself. Not a lot of people think like he does. He's very unique and it really is a very special talent and gift that he has when it comes to being creative."
