Previous reports pointed to Bray Wyatt returning to wrestling on the September 29th episode of AEW Dynamite, however, this is now in doubt.
The episode of Dynamite in question will be held in Rochester, New York, which is the hometown of the late Brodie Lee. In his WWE days, Lee, then going by the name Luke Harper, was a member of Bray Wyatt’s faction, ‘The Wyatt Family’. Tony Khan has now announced that the show will be dedicated to the memory of the former TNT Champion.
Dave Meltzer previously reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it was likely Wyatt would debut with the company at that show. However, responding to a question on the Figure Four Wrestling forum, Meltzer has revealed the former WWE Universal Champion is not scheduled for the show.
“He’s not scheduled for tomorrow unless something changes which I doubt will happen.
He then added that the change might be due to the feeling it would be better not bringing in another new star “until a little way down the line”.
There are people who believe, possibly he himself but I’m not sure of that, it would be better not to bring another person new in until a little way down the line.”
The potential debut of Bray Wyatt may be being held off due to AEW having seen several high profile debuts in recent weeks, with Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole making their first appearances since leaving WWE at All Out on September 5th, and CM Punk making his return to wrestling after over seven years at the August 20th episode of Rampage in his hometown of Chicago.
