‘This Is Going To Be My Run’, Tyson Kidd Recalls Bray Wyatt Texting Him After Re-Signing With WWE

8 months ago By Sports Desk

WWE producer TJ Wilson, also known as Tyson Kidd, recently shared some lesser-known facts about the late Bray Wyatt that many people might not be aware of.

Wilson joined the Stamford-based wrestling company in 2006, three years before Bray Wyatt entered the scene. Over the next 14 years, they not only became colleagues but also formed a close friendship outside the wrestling ring. They even faced each other once in a six-man tag match at FCW in October 2009.

Tragically, Bray Wyatt passed away on August 24, prompting Wilson to share a heartfelt message on Twitter. During an interview with Ryan Satin on “Out of Character,” the three-time Tag Team Champion revealed two interesting tidbits about Wyatt that fans may find surprising.

“Most people probably don’t know this, but there are two things I’d like to mention. Firstly, I used to tease him about this all the time – Bray was possibly the best-smelling wrestler in history. It’s quite the contrast considering his on-screen appearance. I’d often say, ‘Man, based on how you look on TV, you’d expect something different, but he smelled great,'” Wilson reminisced.

The 43-year-old went on to share another anecdote:

“But the other thing I thought about recently, and I wish I had tweeted it when it happened – it’s not a profound thought, but it’s interesting – Bray had a genuine fear of heights. He was really afraid of them. What’s ironic is that he overcame that fear quickly because he soared to great heights in his career. There’s no one better than Bray Wyatt. I love and miss him dearly.”

In 2011, TJ Wilson had a brief stint in NXT. When he returned to the main roster, Bray Wyatt helped him prepare for a promo, as Wilson revealed during his interview on “Out of Character.”

Wilson praised Bray Wyatt, known as The Eater of Worlds, for always being supportive of his colleagues.

“Bray was truly unique. His creativity was outstanding, but it wasn’t limited to himself; he helped everyone all the time. His superpower was making everyone feel important when they spoke to him. He was incredibly special in that regard,” Wilson shared.

Regarding their meeting before Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE last year:

“He texted me and said, ‘Hey, I think I’m ready to get back in the ring a little bit.’ This was in August. I replied, ‘Sure, no problem.’ We exchanged messages about training times, and he asked when I’d be available. I said, ‘I’m training at five or six, but I can meet you anytime at noon or one.’ Initially, he suggested a private meeting, but later he decided to join our practice session. He was extremely helpful to everyone there, offering advice to the wrestlers.”

“He took me aside and said, ‘I love what you’re doing here. Our combined creativity can achieve something special in this business.’ At that point, I wasn’t sure if he was staying in character or not. He mentioned he hadn’t finalized his contract at that time. Later, he did re-sign, and I remember talking to him a few weeks after, and he said, ‘This is going to be the run.’ I genuinely believe that if he had been physically well, he was about to amaze everyone with his performances.”
