After weeks of teasers, WWE Universe finally got to witness the highly-anticipated return of Bray Wyatt last night at WWE Extreme Rules. Fans had been waiting for it to happen. Wyatt closed out the show last night. He debuted a new mask and also indicated the demise of the Firefly Funhouse. Jason Baker has now revealed that his company Callosum Studio was the brains behind the mask and the costume designs for Bray Wyatt’s return. It has been noted how Wyatt’s return paid tribute to former Wyatt Family member, Luke Harper(Brodie Lee in WWE), who passed away.
Bray Wyatt pays tribute to Brodie Lee
Fans were quick to spot a few homages to Bray Wyatt’s past during that vignette. One thing that was seen had to do with Brodie Lee and Erick Redbeard’s former Bludgeon Brother gimmick. It was noted that when Wyatt walked through the door on that Extreme Rules stage, a light, that was similar to Brodie Lee’s AEW debut as the Exalted One, erupted through the door. Abby The Witch’s mask was also the same that Brodie Lee used during the Bludgeon Brothers gimmick.
The return featured multiple characters from the Firefly Funhouse coming to life in the audience as we saw Huskus the Pig, Mercy the Buzzard, Ramblin’ Rabbit, Abby the Witch and even The Fiend. However, this was all in the lead-up to a short vignette that aired, showing the ransacked funhouse covered in cobwebs and seemingly destroyed.
Thereafter, a voice could be heard saying, “Who killed the world? We did!” A masked person then walked through the shining door holding a lantern, before Wyatt unmasked himself. Many have even speculated that ‘The Wyatt 6’ trademark and the six figures who were shown in the spotlight before Bray made his return are somehow connected. We will have to see what Wyatt has in store for the fans.
Yall can tell me if this is a reach but I thought this tiny detail/tribute to Brodie from Bray Wyatt’s return at #ExtremeRules tonight was pretty freaking cool if that’s what it was. Anyone else catch this? pic.twitter.com/iRJMnx2WOk

What a tribute to Mr. Brodie Lee. That mask that Abby The Witch is wearing is what Brodie Lee used when he was Harper as the Bludgeon Brothers. Thanks for that @Windham6 & God Bless & continue to Rest In Power @ThisBrodieLee pic.twitter.com/HKtNOzFbJH
