In a recent interview with The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, former WWE producer Mike Rotunda, better known to wrestling fans as I.R.S. (Irwin R. Schyster) discussed the WWE’s usage of his sons Windham (Bray Wyatt) and Taylor (Bo Dallas).

“Windham’s had an opportunity to be World Champion a couple of times and I’m sure he’ll do it again and Taylor even had the opportunity to be a Tag Team Champion. I think Bo has a lot of ability and even his brother will say that, because he’s a better worker than I am, but hopefully they’ll figure out something that works for him, that enhances his career. He’s worked there quite a while and he has a lot of ability, they just need to find something to capitalize on in my opinion, but that’s the biggest thing, just being able to work, a Dad and his two kids, for the best wrestling company and the biggest wrestling company in the world. That’s probably our legacy, just being able to get that opportunity.

I thought the Bray Wyatt character was out of the box, because I hadn’t seen anything like that and he pulled it off so well you know and then, I didn’t even know he was going to start doing The Fiend stuff and all of a sudden, I was like a new fan watching it myself, because I wasn’t aware that he was, even though you work for the same company, you could go a month without being on the same show, because we were running so many shows, different directions and I’m sure he did have quite a bit of input in it, because the fact of the matter is, when you do have your own input, you’re going to be more comfortable with your thinking in that direction and I’m sure creative gave him some direction too as well, but I think he came up with quite a bit of that with his own creative.

Some people, you can do stuff to enhance a character and make it even bigger, it’s like the character my oldest son does when he did Bray Wyatt, they kind of came up with that themselves and it was, they developed the character more and more and then, they went to doing The Fiend stuff and he was just, Windham, my older son is good on the mic, he can talk well and speak well and he has a creative mind and so does Taylor, they’re both creative, they didn’t get that from me, but they both have creative thinking and have ideas to make it better and like I said, it just depends on the individual I think and also now, the WWE has a much more creative, bigger creative team assembled for stuff like that than they did back in the day, I mean it was more like a hey, this is what you’re going to be doing, we’ll do some vignettes and then, you get going and then you just kind of feed off of that, try to make it the best that you could.”
