Unexpected Person Behind The Fiend’s Mask at Extreme Rules – One Year On.

by | Oct 9, 2023 | News, WWE News | 0 comments

Windham Rotunda, popularly recognized as The Fiend, was not only an emblem of innovation but Bray Wyatt, as he was otherwise known, was surrounded by imaginative peers.

October 9, 2023, was set to be a poignant reminder of Bray Wyatt’s triumphant return to WWE a year prior. As part of the PLE event, before his appearance, characters from his Fire Fly Funhouse could be spotted among the audience. Surprisingly, so was his alternate persona, The Fiend. Yet, it wasn’t a fellow wrestler under the guise.

The person donning the mask was none other than Jason Baker. While his name might not immediately resonate with wrestling enthusiasts, those passionate about special effects would recognize him. Trained under the illustrious Tom Savini, a legend in horror film effects, Baker hails from Pittsburgh, PA. His collaboration with Rotunda gave birth to many of Wyatt’s quirky and memorable personas.

Jason Baker Reflects on Bray Wyatt’s Memorable Comeback Baker didn’t shy away from expressing his emotions on social media, emphasizing how pivotal the Extreme Rules 2022 event was for both him and Rotunda.

“A year ago today, I celebrated my 40th birthday, bid farewell to my beloved grandma, spent two straight days crafting puppet suits, impersonated The Fiend to my best ability, and watched Windham Rotunda reclaim his deserving spot. A truly unforgettable day!”

Tragically, Rotunda left the world on August 24, leaving behind a legacy that both colleagues and admirers continue to honor in the wrestling arena.
