No matter the level of the show, WWE heading to Madison Square Garden is always a big deal.
The famous arena is seen as the home of WWE and hosted the first-ever WrestleMania back in March 1985.
On March 12th WWE returned to their spiritual home for a live event that featured Charlotte Flair, Cody Rhodes, Becky Lynch, Gunther, and more of the company’s biggest stars. However, one name noticeably missing from the show was Bray Wyatt. Although the former World Champion doesn’t wrestle too frequently, he had been advertised to appear in a match with LA Knight.
With Wyatt absent, Knight took on Braun Strowman.
Bray Wyatt hasn’t wrestled since February 26th when he defeated Knight at a live event in Rockford, Illinois with his most recent live on-screen appearance coming on the February 17th edition of SmackDown. This is despite him seemingly heading into a match at WrestleMania against Bobby Lashley in less than three weeks’ time. The star has retained a presence on TV taunting the All-Mighty in a series of pre-taped segments and vignettes.
The spooky former champion has only had one televised match since returning to WWE at Extreme Rules on October 8th. On that occasion, Wyatt defeated Night at the Royal Rumble in the first-ever Mountain Dew Pitch Black Match.
WWE Star Bray Wyatt Is “Embarrassing To Watch”
Wrestling veteran Dutch Mantell recently shared his opinion of Wyatt’s work since returning to WWE. Mantell said that while he had shown promise initially he is now “hitting a zero.” The former wrestling manager added that the recent FireFly Fun House segment was “embarrassing to watch.”
