Bray Wyatt passed away on August 24 at 36 years old. Wyatt left a legacy behind him that will live on forever in the annals of wrestling history. His tragic death left fans dumbstruck and in grief.Wyatt had been dealing with health issues earlier this year. He was expected to compete at WrestleMania 39 in April against Bobby Lashley. However, the plan was scrapped due to “physical issues.”
While his brother Bo Dallas hasn’t participated in a WWE match since 2019, he was the person portraying the Uncle Howdy character in those Bray Wyatt angles.
Unfortunately, the storyline was abandoned following the untimely passing of Bray Wyatt at the young age of 36.
During a Q&A segment on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked about any updates on Dallas making future appearances. Meltzer speculated that while it remains a possibility, fans shouldn’t anticipate it. As of now, it seems unlikely that Uncle Howdy will return.
“I think he’s done. I mean, the only reason he was even being used was as a favor to Bray Wyatt. So I mean, it’s possible they’ll use him, but I don’t expect him to be back.”
Earlier this year, Wyatt made an appearance on Out of Character with Ryan Satin. The late star had a lot to say about the Uncle Howdy character. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
“Uncle Howdy and Bray and all these things, these are all real,” Wyatt said. “They are based on moments and things that have really happened. The Uncle Howdy, there is so much more to it than you think. It’s not just so cut and dry, spooky man in the background, there’s more to it. There’s complexities that you haven’t gotten to see yet.”
