Following WrestleMania 36, cinematic wrestling matches became the talk of the industry. The Firefly Fun House and Boneyard Matches pushed the boundaries of traditional wrestling and gave a glimpse into what sports entertainment could potentially evolve into.
Speaking with SuperSport, new WWE Universal Champion, Braun Strowman had high praise for these matchups, calling them “cinematic pieces of art.”
“They were cinematic pieces of art. It was literally sports entertainment at its pinnacle. It was mind-blowing watching the cinematics… the fights scenes, just the whole presence of it all,” Braun Strowman would say. “I’ve got goosebumps thinking about it right now. When I watch wrestling I don’t watch it as an analytical wrestler trying to break it down and nitpick everything, I watch wrestling like I did when I was a teenager, when I was a child, I watch it to be entertained… and, dammit, it entertained me.”
Continuing on, Strowman admitted he’d like to have a similar match with Bray Wyatt.
“As much as I hate it for him, because he isn’t going to want to get these hands, it’s my mentor, it’s the man that made the monster, the man that turned into The Fiend, the one and only Bray Wyatt. His mind, his abilities, there is nothing else like it.”
Braun Strowman may be closer to a Firefly Fun House than he initially believed. Bray Wyatt set his sights on his former protege on the most recent episode of SmackDown. Learn more at this link.
