Wrestling and horror are going together lately like machetes and Jason Voorhees, especially when it comes to the WWE Universal Champion, Bray Wyatt.
Wyatt has always had a horror-tinged gimmick when it came to wrestling as of the last few years, from a cult leader with a family to be reborn as almost a supernatural hero before vanishing from our screens. Then the Firefly Funhouse started to appear on our screens and we were eventually introduced to Bray Wyatt’s alter ego, The Fiend. The entity that seemingly cannot be stopped and will do anything to protect Bray and destroy his enemies.
So who better to contact to create the Fiend’s look than the master of horror makeup, Tom Savini. Tom not only created the mask that Bray wears when he is the Fiend but now he’s created one of the creepiest title belts in the history of professional wrestling.
That’s something else. There is a limited run of the titles available signed by Tom Savini going for upwards of $6500 made with latex skin and acrylic eyes and are numbered and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
This is just proof that horror never really goes away. It’s always there lurking beneath the surface and all you have to do is let it in.
