Shortly after Bray Wyatt’s Spectacular return to WWE, his veteran father, IRS, sent him an important reminder.
As Extreme Rules came to a close, the lights went out and “He’s got the whole world in his hands” played in the arena. Then, people dressed as characters from the Firefly Fun House were spotlit in the crowd one by one.
Finally, a doorway that had appeared at the top of the ramp opened and Wyatt walked through with his signature lantern in hand to a huge reaction from the Philadelphia crowd.
In the aftermath of Wyatt’s return, his father Mike Rotunda posted on social media to say how great it was to see him back in WWE before leaning into his IRS character to remind him that he won’t be safe come April and that he’d better pay his taxes!
Great to see my son back in @wwe, but nobody is safe come April.

Mike Rotunda had a decades-long career which saw him wrestling all over the world in promotions like WWE, Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He is likely best-remembered for his alliance with ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase in the early-1990s when he portrayed IRS, a villainous tax inspector.
Bray Wyatt has been confirmed to be making his next appearance on the October 14th edition of WWE SmackDown.
