Video: Bray Wyatt tells the tale of Sister Abigail in one of the best WWE promos in years

Watch Bray Wyatt tell the tale of Sister Abigail in one of the best WWE promos in a very, very long time.

Every time Bray Wyatt speaks, you have to be aware of the potential double meaning in his words. He always says what he means but he's never obvious about it, instead electing to tell his tales in a spooky and ominous tone, with his soothing voice that betrays his intensity.

The guy is creepy but endearing, dark but full of potential.

The above promo, one of the best WWE produced pieces of work in years, is Bray telling the tale of Sister Abigail. I'll let you read the words and you can digest what it means:

"She taught me. She taught me from a young age. She said 'you got to get them before they get you. A rattlesnake's skin is the same color as the leaves,' she said. And we all understood her. She led us with her love but she taught us that the fires, well, they were our friends too. 'The world is an evil place,' she said. And we agreed. And I was there, I was there when she took her final breath. She pulled me in close and she said, 'you're the one.' She said, 'They chose you, long before you were ever in existence.' And I understood what she meant. Her touch could save the world but her kiss burns it to the ground. I love you, Sister Abigail."

Sister Abigail, it should be noted for those unaware, is the name of his finishing move, the downward spiral slam.

How great is that?
