One of his most iconic creations was “The Fiend,” an unearthly character introduced in 2019. With a menacing Joker-like mask, The Fiend showcased a transformed, child-friendly persona, starkly contrasting Wyatt’s previous alter ego, the Firefly Funhouse.

This intricate dual character concept underscored Wyatt’s extraordinary creativity. Controversially touted as invincible in the ring, The Fiend drew the audience’s attention and quickly became a prime attraction in WWE programming. His last match was in the 2023 Royal Rumble.
