Brian Myers Recalls The Great Khali Mistaking Bray Wyatt For Michael Hayes
'Talk About A Locker Room Pop!'
Brian Myers has recounted a hilarious story in which The Great Khali thought Bray Wyatt's real name was Michael Hayes.
Myers notes that Khali had an uncanny ability to just forget everyone's names, even though he worked in the WWE roster for a number of years, and amazed the locker room during a recent visit back to WWE by remembering Drew McIntyre's name.
However, when Wyatt - real name Windham Rotunda - asked Khali the same question, the WWE Hall Of Famer thought Wyatt was actually former Fabulous Freebird and 62-year-old producer Hayes.
Speaking to Fightful, Myers recalled: "So I remember that day because we hadn't seen him in a while. We were bulls****ing with him sitting in catering and kind of ball-busting. We were making fun of that he knows like nobody's name even though he's been around us for like 10, 15 years or whatever. He's like, 'Hey, man,' and everyone's just whatever.
"Gallows, who knows him like very well was with him in Deep South and wrestled him a million times is like, 'Hey, Khali, what's my name?' He goes, 'Drew!' and we were like, 'Holy sh*t! He knows his name!' or whatever.
"And then Windham, Bray Wyatt tries to go, 'Khali, what about me? What's my real name?' He goes, 'Michael Hayes, man.' And you talk about a locker room pop. I mean, the boys f***ing exploded."
