Bray Wyatt had complete control on the Firefly funhouse

Bray Wyatt’s make-up artist Jason Baker recently confessed in an interview that the WWE Chairman was impressed by the inception of the firefly funhouse concept.

He admitted that Vince listened to all the ideas and responded in a positive way, which gave Wyatt the freedom to put out the best content every week.

“I wasn’t there every week, I wasn’t there all the time. But I will say this, a lot of times guys like Vince [McMahon] would listen to ideas. They’d really take it under consideration and allow us to run rampant with a lot of things,”

Baker also recalled the time when Vince openly said that he trusts the process because the concept was so over with the WWE Universe.

“At a particular time, I remember when we first started it, there was a time when we could just do whatever we wanted and Vince was like, “OK guys, I trust you!” I don’t know the ins or outs of what happened or what went down, but he was very open. He listened to us, he listened to ideas. I think that’s definitely credit to him!”

It has been five months since the former WWE Universal champion wrestled a match. Earlier this year, Jason reported that Wyatt is currently looking for projects in Hollywood.
