A new report provides some insight as to what fans can expect to see from Bray Wyatt on the October 14th episode of SmackDown!
For weeks leading into Extreme Rules, cryptic QR code clues were peppered into WWE programming and seemed to signal the upcoming appearance of a mysterious White Rabbit character. As the clues continued, it became more and more apparent that they were most likely hinting at a Bray Wyatt return to the company as there were references to patricide, the words “let me in,” and even a quick shot of Huskus the Pig, one of the characters in Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse.
Sure enough, after Matt Riddle was victorious in the main event of Extreme Rules, the lights in the arena went off and fans held up their phones to create the familiar firefly effect that was synonymous with Wyatt during his previous run with the company. Live versions of the Firefly Funhouse characters were shown throughout the arena, and a severed Fiend head appeared on the announce table before a mysterious masked figure appeared carrying a lantern. Bray Wyatt removed the mask, said “I’m here,” and blew out the lantern to end the show.
Fans tuning into the season premiere of Monday Night Raw may have been disappointed not to see the returning Eater of Worlds live, as he appeared only via video packages and a garbled message that encouraged everyone to “revel in what you are.” However, there was a new QR code clue on the episode, and Wyatt was advertised to appear on the October 14th episode of SmackDown in New Orleans, LA. A report from PWInsider confirmed that he is assigned to the SmackDown brand going forward.
Plans For Bray Wyatt On The October 14th Episode Of SmackDown
Now, a new report from Fightful Select reveals some of the plans for his appearance on October 14th, noting that he is going to be a focal point of SmackDown. The new mask that Wyatt will be using is said to be called the “Uncle Howdy mask” internally, and there are plans to use the abandoned Firefly Funhouse aesthetic as seen at Extreme Rules.
Divisive star Eva Marie recently took to social media to tease that she might be joining the heavily-rumored Wyatt 6 faction.
