Sonny Gray is…Bray Wyatt

The Undertaker and Bray Wyatt have a lot in common. In fact, they even fought at WrestleMania 31.

The Undertaker will always be considered the face of fear, but Wyatt and his group the Wyatt family have sort of become the new faces of fear. From their creepy entrance to appearing and disappearing at their will to their numbers game to Bray’s creepy crab walk, the Wyatt Family are some of the spookiest guys in wrestling today.

And Bray is their cult leader. He cuts promos speaking words that most fans don’t understand. He turns the lights off and interrupts when no one expects it.Where Undertaker was deliberately scary, Bray comes at you surprisingly. His scare tactics are not known beforehand, and hearing the Wyatt Family sound can scare even a grown man.

In turn, Sonny Gray has a lot of connections to Bumgarner. They were both selected in the first round, and both men have been dominant in their time in the MLB.

Gray has been in the MLB for three seasons and in those years he has made a name for himself as one of the best pitchers in the game. He has a a career 33-20 record with a 2.88 ERA and 419 strikeouts. Last season he made the All Star team and finished third in Cy Young voting.

Gray has proven that he is one of the dominant young pitchers in the league. His stuff dazzles opponents and he finished third in Wins Over Replacement with 5.8 wins.

Teams should be scared to face Gray on the mound. Knowing he has been so dominant so young in his career adds to his mystique.

Wyatt has become WWE’s new face of fear, and in only three years Gray has become one of the youngest and dominant pitchers in the MLB; be afraid.
