With Bray Wyatt set to be in action at the Royal Rumble in a Pitch Black match, a new report has shed light on what WWE has planned for the unique bout.
Since Bray Wyatt returned to WWE at Extreme Rules on October 8th, he has made multiple appearances on SmackDown and at Premium Live Events to speak to the audience about how he has changed his ways since his days as The Fiend. Much of the time, he is interrupted by the mysterious Uncle Howdy, who has accused Wyatt of being a liar who really wants to hurt people.
In recent weeks it has become apparent that Wyatt does really want to hurt LA Knight with Knight goading the former WWE Champion on SmackDown. The two men will meet in Wyatt’s first televised match back in WWE at the Royal Rumble but it will be no ordinary match. The bout is being billed as a Mountain Dew Pitch Black match with nobody really knowing what to expect.
Fightful Select has shed some light on what could be in store with a report stating that there will be “neon” elements involved in the unique bout. The report also added that there have been run-throughs for the match taking place.
