Jim Cornette has given his opinion on who he thinks the white rabbit teasers are for, and whilst he’s been sceptical of the wrestler in the past has admitted he may have to keep an open mind this time.
The teases began on the 16th September 2022 edition of Friday Night SmackDown, when Jefferson Airplane’s song White Rabbit was played to the live audience during a commercial break, since which time there have been plenty of other hints.
In a discussion on his Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the legendary manager and promoter admits he thinks it will be Bray Wyatt who is unveiled, and repeated his past dislike for The Fiend.
I mean, unless it’s somebody that we don’t know about to this point, it seems like it fits Bray Wyatt and or some sh*t that he’d come up with. And now this brings up an interesting thing. Because we said the last couple of goddamn years that we watched Bray Wyatt, holy sh*t, this is f*cking rotten. They liked him, the fans liked him with the Wyatt Family and the spooky lantern and the rocking chair, whatever, okay.
And then suddenly, he became an invulnerable supervillain The Fiend, had gasoline poured on him and set himself, didn’t set himself, but was set on fire and burned to a crisp, The Crispy Critter of Canyon Creek. And all this other Firefly Fun House supernatural hocus pocus lights going on and off people teleporting what the f*ck, get this sh*t away from me. But then he said, after he was let go, that it was Vince didn’t he? He was blaming Vince for a lot of the the creative. He wasn’t happy with it. This wasn’t what he wanted?
Jim Cornette went on to admit that he will keep his mind open if the return is handled in a creative way.
So basically If that is true, we may need to give this guy another chance. If he comes back and it’s spooky and interesting and not silly and fake, then you know, well that would be swell. So we’ll see what happens but it sounds like kind of the stuff that Bray Wyatt was doing and then they got who was it, Alexa Bliss? [She] was tainted and her mind taken over by him and then she got his gimmick when he left and blah, blah, blah.
I’ll keep an open mind. Maybe they will tweak this from the way it was presented under Vince to the way that it wants to be presented under Triple H and that’ll be better or more adult or just not as bad. So we’ll see what happens. But if this is Bray, we’ll give him another chance.
This isn’t the only positivity towards a WWE storyline by WWE recently, as he is a fan of what Sami Zayn has been doing with The Bloodline.
