Bray has been busy working on his first Hollywood film project, as he is cast in a horror movie. Work of the filming on the project was scheduled to begin in late November in Tennessee, and the project is being described as a blend of Ichi the Killer and Xanadu. Horror movie fans have been following the film updates, curious to know the details of it.

Wyatt was released from WWE back on Saturday, July 31, 2021. He became a free agent when his 90-day non-compete clause finished on Friday, October 29 but has yet to appear in any other pro wrestling company as of writing this article. Wyatt had reached the zenith of his WWE career when he had faced The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 31. His character was well written, he even managed to scare grown-up adults, such was his commitment to being a heel.
For those who haven’t heard about the gaming consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X gaming consoles have been extremely difficult for the average person to order since they were released in late 2020. The issue of bots buying up all the gaming consoles and subsequently scalping up prices has become such a huge problem that the US Congress recently introduced a bill that could automatically ban bots from purchasing such items.
