Bray Wyatt’s first televised match since WrestleMania 37 has now been confirmed.
Bray Wyatt opened the December 30th episode of Friday Night SmackDown to address his actions from the previous week where he attacked a cameraman. The former World Champion said that he doesn’t consider himself a bad person, but also doesn’t regret the bad things he’s done to get where he is today. However, he did want to apologise for attacking the cameraman.
LA Knight Vs Bray Wyatt Set For Royal Rumble
As Bray Wyatt began to apologise he was interrupted by LA Knight. The former Max Dupri mocked Wyatt for apologising before claiming that he had paid someone to dress up as Uncle Howdy a few weeks ago. Once he was in the ring, Knight challenged Wyatt to a match at the Royal Rumble.
Wyatt said that it was time to show the world how cruel he could be before accepting the challenge.
It was later announced that the bout will be the newly advertised Pitch Black Match.
Just as the match was made another Uncle Howdy video played on the big screen before the mysterious figure appeared in person. After a slow walk to the ring, Howdy removed their hat and climbed into the ring. The figure initially stood between Wyatt and Knight before moving to stand next to the former.
However, just as it appeared that an alliance had been formed Howdy delivered a Sister Abigail to Wyatt to leave him laying. A bemused Knight left the ring and could be hearing shouting “what the hell was that?!” as the bizarre scene played out.
Uncle Howdy slowly left the ring and walked back up the ramp to close the segment.
Bray Wyatt returned to the ring for the first time since WrestleMania 37 on December 26th at WWE’s traditional Boxing Day live event at Madison Square Garden. He has since wrestled a further three times, but his match at the Royal Rumble will be his first on WWE television.
