The Fiend remains one of the most unique characters to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. Bray Wyatt’s latest iteration made its in-ring debut back at 2019’s SummerSlam pay-per-view again Finn Balor, where he won in a squash match. However, his booking since then has been panned by many fans. Particularly him losing to Goldberg at WWE Super Showdown in 2020. He would lose to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 in a singles match after being betrayed by Alexa Bliss. He had been absent from WWE television since then. Bray Wyatt could be losing The Fiend to a big name in WWE.
Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31st last year and since then the former WWE Superstar has already teased what he might do next. From what it seems, it once seemed he would be making his way to AEW far earlier than expected, as WWE may have let him have a shorter noncompete. Wyatt also appeared on March 13th, at the Showcase of Legends 7 event in Albany, New York. Braun Strowman was released last year as well.
In the past few weeks, WWE has inexplicably played the song ‘White Rabbit’ by Jefferson Airplane in between commercial breaks at various events, with many thinking that the 60s classic is hinting towards the return of Bray Wyatt, but others believed it was about Karrion Kross, who use to be known as White Rabbit.

WWE has added an interesting name to their employ, in an equally interesting spot.
Fightful has learned that horror writer Rob Fee recently joined the company, starting full time work in October, and officially signing this week for the spot of Director of Longtime creative. Fee has worked as a horror writer for Marvel in the past and has been well regarded for his work. He’s penned comics for Spider-Man, Daredevil, Avengers, and was head writer on several Disney shows.
Fee once pitched a Fiend related movie, that was said to have resonated well with WWE higher ups, and had the possibility of getting produced. However, Bray Wyatt was released shortly after, so the project couldn’t get produced. However, we have been told that one of Fee’s early projects with WWE has been the direction and production of the QR code-related cryptic messages we’ve seen on television in recent weeks that has gained an incredible amount of buzz.
Fee is known as a longtime follower of wrestling and sources within the company said the was very familiar with the product.
