Earlier this week The RCWR Show with Lee Sanders interviewed former WWE Superstar Mason Ryan. It was the 1st interview Mason Ryan granted since being released from WWE last month. A wide range of topics were discussed including Mason Ryan’s thoughts on teaming with CM Punk in New Nexus, learning from him and his walkout on the WWE.

Mason Ryan also discussed the drastic change Husky Harris was able to do in becoming Bray Wyatt. Check out highlights of the interview below! To watch the interview scroll to the bottom.

Lee Sanders: You spent time working with CM Punk, talk about what that was like as we always hear about how he strives for perfection while being a true professional at the same time.


Mason Ryan: Yeah, absolutely! There’s not many guys like him around. To be under his wing and have him around lots of times as we traveled together, just to be around him was awesome. He’s such a big star, just the way he carries himself and his matches. That was another huge thing as on the live events we got to be a ringside for a lot of these main events like with him and John Cena and stuff. We got to witness first hand as we had the best seats in the house watching, learning and seeing what these guys do and watching two people at the top of their of game. CM Punk is what what he puts out there, he is the best in the world, he’s phenomenal in the ring and on the mic. To be around him and witness how he does stuff was—you don’t get much of a better experience than that.


Lee Sanders: Now while being part of New Nexus you also had the opportunity to work alongside Husky Harris who would go on to become Bray Wyatt. Talk about what it was like working with him back then and the 180 he was able to make as Bray Wyatt. It’s no secret that when Randy gave him that punt to the head a few years back to have him removed from TV he said to Vince he’d be back. Took him a hot minute but he came back and he came back in a big way!


Mason Ryan: I’ve known Bray a long time. He was there when I first got to FCW. I always got along great with him, he’s a good guy. There was a group of us there that would go out and have fun and he was one of those guys. I’ve known him a while and he’s a really cool guy to be around. I remember when him and Curtis Axel debuted with New Nexus, that was quite crazy seeing what they were doing and then to put myself alongside him was awesome. That night when he got punted we really didn’t know if that was the end for him or what ever. Turns out they didn’t but he went away and reinvented himself like I don’t think anyone has. To come back with the Bray Wyatt character that he has now which is phenomenal! To see the interviews he does, promos are unbelievable, they blow you away that there that good. Very cool to watch cause I came back down a little a bit after he was working on his character, just to see the development of it over months and months and what he put into it was really cool to see. He deserves all the success he gets.
