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.Fans have noted an element in the Extreme Rules graphic which have been linked to possible return of Bray Wyatt.
Bray Wyatt could return at Extreme Rules
Fans on Twitter have pointed out that the Extreme Rules match graphic for Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle features a lantern and fireflies in the background. The lantern and fireflies are also visible in the background of another Extreme Rules poster with Ronda Rousey. The lantern and fireflies have been the important factors in Wyatt’s entrance in the past.
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.
After a backstage segment on 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.
