Bray Wyatt Posts Biblical Symbolism Following WrestleMania Loss – As noted, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt lost the opening match of WrestleMania 37 Night 2 to Randy Orton. That defeat came as Alexa Bliss acted in a very strange way, seemingly turning on The Fiend.
Earlier this morning, Bray Wyatt tweeted out a very interesting image. He didn’t use any caption, but the painting he picked was of Samson and Delilah, a famous betrayal story from the Old Testament of the Bible.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Sampson took life-long Nazarite vows in his service to the Hebrew God. One of those vows was that Sampson would wear his hair long and was not allowed to cut it.
As one of the last judges to rule Israel, Sampson was gifted from Heaven with god-like strength. He defeated many enemies of Israel by the strength of his hands, keeping them from being ruled by other nations. One of Sampson’s weaknesses was his relationships with women, and he soon began an interesting one with a beautiful woman named Delilah. Delilah was a Philistine, an enemy to Sampson’s people. During his time with her, Delilah tried multiple times to find the source of his god-like strength. Sampson finally told her his secret, that it was from his long hair as a Nazarite. While sleeping, Delilah cut Sampson’s hair and called the Philistines to come take Sampson away. After the Philistines chained Sampson to two pillars, Sampson would pray to God and ask for strength one more time. God granted his prayer, allowing Sampson to break the two pillars which killed the Philistines (and Sampson as well).
This symbolism was not lost on many fans, especially those who knew the Biblical story. It seems that Wyatt considers that Alexa Bliss turned on him at the show of shows by using his weakness against him. For those who know the Bible story of Sampson, some may wonder if The Fiend has “one more burst of strength” left for the character.
