Bray Wyatt continued his descent into madness on the January 20th episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
On the show, LA Knight was in action against local competitor Ren Jones and made short work of his opponent, winning in under a minute. However, the lights flickered on and off during the match after Knight ran down Wyatt in a pre-match promo.
After the match the Firefly Fun House returned to a big cheer. Abby The Witch, Ramblin Rabbit, Huskus the Pig Boy and Mercy the Buzzard all featured as Wyatt fell back into another of his previous personas. A week earlier the star cut a promo while in a rocking chair and claimed once again to be The Eater of Worlds.
Bray Wyatt Returns To The Dark Side
In the Fun House Ramblin’ Rabbit said that he was scared of the dark and worried about the Pitch Black Match at the Royal Rumble. Wyatt said that Rabbit was right to be scared of the dark and mocked LA Knight for having parents who decided to call him Los Angeles Knight.
The segment was interrupted by a short video from Uncle Howdy who repeated “I told you so” before adding “all you needed was a little push” seemingly confirming Wyatt’s return to the dark side.
As the camera cut back to Wyatt he dropped his jovial front and said it was Knight’s fault for opening the door, and now whatever comes through it is his problem.
"Now that I think about it, you should be scared of the dark." 😉

On SmackDown, Michael Cole stated that anything goes and the match will only end via pin-fall or submission.
