Former WWE Superstar/Producer Mike Rotunda was interviewed this week on The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast.
The 5-time WWE World Tag Team Champion talked about his release from the company, his sons Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas, and he talked about his career that spanned decades across several major wrestling companies.
Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:
Mike Rotunda was asked if Bray Wyatt is the one coming up with the ideas for that creative: “I think Bray came up with a lot of it. I’m sure the creative staff helped with it. I don’t know per say. I let them do their own deals. I think Windam (Bray) is pretty creative and had a lot of different ideas for that character. I think it was playing off the Mr. Rogers deal even before Mr. Rogers was redone. I think he came up with quite a bit of it but I’m sure he had help from WWE creative as well. I thought the Bray Wyatt character was out of the box. I had not seen anything like that and he pulled it off so well. I didn’t even know he was going to start doing the Fiend stuff. I was like a new fan watching it myself because, even though you work for the same company, you can go a month without being on the same show. When you do have your own input, you’re going to be more comfortable in your thinking in that direction.”
Rotunda was asked what the legacy of his family in wrestling will be: “I don’t know. I think the fact that we all got a chance to work for WWE which is the biggest wrestling company in the world says something right there. Windham has had an opportunity to be World Champion a couple of times. I’m sure he will do it again. Taylor (Bo Dallas) even had an opportunity to be Tag Team Champion. I think Bo has a lot of ability. Even his brother will say that he’s a better worker than he is but hopefully they will figure out something that works for him and enhances his career. He’s worked there quite a while and has a lot of ability. They need to figure out something to capitalize on that.”
