Reports of the former WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt possibly returning to WWE created a buzz. Wyatt reportedly had a flight booked for a WWE return at Clash at the Castle. It turns out his return to the square circle has been delayed. Meanwhile, fans were frenzied after last week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown. WWE had seemingly teased Bray Wyatt’s return. However, it seemed that the rumor has been snubbed by WWE star Karrion Kross.
Bray Wyatt drops interesting hints
Fans have also noted an element in the Extreme Rules graphic which have been linked to possible return of Bray Wyatt. After a backstage segment on this week’s RAW with Austin Theory, a QR code could be seen in the background, and when scanned, it was noted that it takes to a video on WWE.com featuring a white rabbit. The video asks the question, “Who killed the world?” The letters fill in to say “You did,” and then a “Come with me” message appears before it flashes “9.23,” the date of Friday’s episode of SmackDown.
Post RAW, Wyatt liked a tweet from 2019 that may have added further speculation.
Meanwhile, during the September 16 episode of SmackDown, arena speakers played the iconic 1967 psychedelic rock song “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane. Red lights were flashed and the crowd turned on their phones’ flashlights, similar to how it was done during Wyatt’s entrances.
Some fans in attendance believed that these occurrences are teasing the return of ‘The Eater of Worlds’. Karrion Kross recently tweeted out a few emojis relating to his character. There was an hourglass, a question mark, and most intriguingly, a rabbit. This was in response to a video of Kross from 2018, when he worked for Mexican promotion Lucha Underground as The White Rabbit. WWE had previously also dropped a tease, which could possibly for Wyatt. The former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey also opened up on the rumors.
A new WWE website video may have Bray’s new theme.
