Bray Wyatt’s sensational return at Extreme Rules offered up more questions than answers. While fans were excited to see one of their heroes come back, attention soon turned to what comes next.
Wyatt’s comeback incorporated many of the characters from his past, while there have also been hints at a faction called the ‘Wyatt 6.’ This has led many fans to believe that the former World Champion will now be forming a new stable, possibly in a similar vein to The Wyatt Family from his initial run with the company.
A Number Of Current And Former Stars Linked With New Roles
Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer offered an update on the potential faction, and who might be involved. Interestingly, Meltzer claimed that Malakai Black (Aleister Black) was also considered for a role, although he has since confirmed he will be staying with AEW.
“There is all kinds of speculation regarding the identities of the Wyatt 6 group. There is also said to be a long-term plan for the group up to WrestleMania.
There have been teased hints of Joe Gacy as Huskus, Grayson Waller as Mercy the Buzzard and Alexa Bliss as Sister Abigail between social media for the fist two and a teased photo of Abigail with both the Raw and Smackdown women’s belts, which Bliss has held. The Mercy character also greatly resembled Waller with a shirt that he had worn on television and same height and build.
Plus, for weeks, the announcers have done teases about Bliss not being where she used to be. There was also a Liv Morgan tease for that spot. Ramblin Rabbit has had the obvious rumors of Erick Rowan although those are just rumors at this point because Rowan was formerly with the group.
The Fiend rumors are for Taylor Rotunda, Wyatt’s younger brother, the former Bo Dallas. It should become obvious within a week. Others internally have said some of those are believed to be accurate but said things are up in the air, mentioning others could be part of it, mentioning The Dyad in particular are possible, and other names listed are not sure things.
While obviously this won’t happen, there was talk of Aleister Black for this group.”
Bray Wyatt had been absent from WWE for just over 14 months having been released by the company back in July 2021. At the time it was reported that the star often clashed with then-Chairman Vince McMahon. When McMahon retired, this appeared to clear the way for the former World Champion to return.
It has been announced that Wyatt will make his next appearance on the October 14th edition of SmackDown.
