In 2010 under the guise of Husky Harris, Rotunda began his professional wrestling career with the WWE through their developing division NXT. As the cult leader Bray Wyatt of the Wyatt Family faction, which also includes Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, and Braun Strowman, he was added to the main roster in 2014.
He was regarded as one of the best speakers of his generation, enticing the crowds with the expression “follow the buzzards” and frequently sang the line “he’s got the whole world in his hands.”
