Bray Wyatt will be FOX’s newest star.
In case you somehow haven’t heard, Bray Wyatt returned to the company during this past weekend’s Extreme Rules premium live event. The former two-time WWE Champion. Following the conclusion to the show’s main event, which saw Matt Riddle defeat Seth Rollins in a Fight Pit with UFC Hall of Famer, Daniel Cormier as the special guest referee, the lights went out…and the chaos ensued.
Wyatt’s vintage ‘He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands’ began echoing throughout the Wells Fargo Center. The song would slowly stop and a spotlight would appear on real-life masked versions of Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse characters, first, Huskus The Pig Boy, next, Mercy The Buzzard, followed by Rambling Rabbit, and Abby The Witch. The final character to appear was The Fiend, before everyone’s attention was directed to a door on the stage.
Cameras then cut to a vignette with a masked figure speaking with an in-and-out screen graphic interrupting whatever message the figure was trying to get out. We then cut back to the live arena and the door, which had a beaming blue light shining through the cracks. The door would blast open before the light would go out…just to reveal a lantern, and there he was. Wyatt would walk through the door, lift the mask to confirm it was him and proclaim ‘We’re Here’ before blowing out the lantern’s light to send the show off-the-air.
During this past Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, several clues hinting at Wyatt’s next appearance began to be known through another QR code, before later on in the show, it was announced by WWE that Wyatt will be in-person at the Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana during this Friday’s edition of SmackDown.
In an update provided by PWInsider, Bray Wyatt will now be appearing on WWE’s blue brand going forward.
While Bray Wyatt returning to WWE was a special moment, there’s a real chance that it wouldn’t happen as the popular star was fielding several ‘real’ offers from multiple notable companies. More on which companies were interested in Wyatt can be found by clicking here.
