Bray Wyatt’s WrestleMania Plans “Up In The Air”

Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt was in line for a big WrestleMania 39 bout after his recent return to WWE but now his status for the event is very much up in the air with time quickly running out.

Wyatt made his intentions clear for WrestleMania 39 ahead of the Elimination Chamber when he set his sights on the winner of the Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley match. Lesnar nixed plans to work with Wyatt at the event so Lashley picked up a disqualification victory and looked to be on a collision course with Wyatt.

The match received some build when a Wyatt video played while Lashley was in the arena but the former Fiend was pulled off live events in recent weeks and things appear to have gone quiet on the planned bout.

Speaking on Sunday Night’s Main Event, Dave Meltzer confirmed the speculation that Bray Wyatt is dealing with an illness and his WrestleMania 39 plans remain in some doubt:

“He’s ill. He was supposed to be at the show Friday and he was not so he’s still ill. They did do a quick tease of him so he’s not gone from the company. When I asked this week if he was going to be wrestling Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania, I did not get an answer and they did not promote that match on either show at all.”

“I was not given an answer so my gut is that it’s up in the air. I was not told a no, I was not told a yes. I was just told that he is ill. I guess it’s out of their hands right now. But he’s still with the company. I know there’s people who think that he quit the company but they did do a tease on Friday Night SmackDown show.”

Bray Wyatt’s logo appeared behind LA Knight during a backstage segment on SmackDown leading many to wonder if Wyatt is going to renew hostilities with his Royal Rumble opponent soon.
