Although Bray Wyatt’s match at the Royal Rumble is over a week away, fans are already looking ahead to WrestleMania in April.
At the event Wyatt is scheduled to meet LA Knight in the first-ever Pitch Black Match. The pair have been feuding for a number of weeks, but there is clearly a bigger story also at play. This had led fans to wonder when Wyatt wins at the Rumble as is expected, what happens next?
One of the features of Bray Wyatt’s current WWE run has been the emergence of Uncle Howdy. The mysterious figure has tormented Wyatt at every turn, even attacking him in the ring during a segment with Knight. Howdy has also crossed over to Monday Night Raw where Alexa Bliss appears to have come under his spell.
Who Will Bray Wyatt Face At WrestleMania?
Speaking on a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that it appears Howdy could be the man to face Wyatt at WrestleMania.
“I think we’re getting that match at WrestleMania, it sure looks like that way to me. It’s something. I mean, Bray’s a merch seller, and Bray’s over, and you have to do something with him, and the top guys probably want to avoid him, because his history with top guys, I mean, what did Bret Hart say, ‘you go in as a 10 and come out as a 6?”
Although Uncle Howdy’s true identity remains a mystery it has been rumoured that the character is being played by Bray Wyatt’s real-life brother Bo Dallas. The former NXT Champion was released by WWE back in April 2021 having spent more than a decade with the company. Dallas has also been backstage at more than recent WWE event.
