On the most recent edition of Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, a fan sent in a question, and asked how Jim Cornette would book “The Fiend”.
The Bray Wyatt creation has seemingly spilt wrestling fans down the middle as of late, and many people either love "The Fiend" or hate him. Another person many people love or hate is Jim Cornette, who had this to say about the character:
"This whole thing is just... probably the worst," Cornette said. "And over the last year and a half or two years, imagine how much that takes in. As probably 50% of it has involved The Fiend. Every time we see him it's garbage. It's goofy f**king puppets appearing out of nowhere. It's supernatural bull**it, black sludge vomit, being killed in front of us and then just getting up or whatever.”
Cornette’s co-host, Brian Last, followed up by asking what could be done to save the character, at least in Jim’s opinion. The legendary manager told listeners:
"No, it's totally unsalvageable. That's not wrestling anymore. So I don't know what the f**king attraction is that anybody would be entertained by this horses**t. But no I wouldn't book The Fiend except possibly a long stay at the mental institution. I mean the whole thing, the Firefly vignettes, the whole thing is an embarrassment to the business.”
