Brock Lesnar Reportedly Removed From WWE Raw

Xero News reports that Brock Lesnar will not appear on WWE Raw tonight, after reported he’d return tonight. This would come on the heels of Bray Wyatt’s return.



WWE Universe was delighted after Bray Wyatt finally made his highly-anticipated return last night at WWE Extreme Rules. The return was teased for weeks and 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 had 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. It has come to light that Wyatt’s return plans had ben chalked out ever since former WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon announced his retirement.

Bray Wyatt return was planned after Vince McMahon retirement

According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Bray Wyatt’s WWE return was being planned as soon as Vince McMahon retired from the company. It is also reported that several people were kept out of the loop regarding Wyatt’s return including the standard WWE creative team:

“As if there was any doubt, Bray Wyatt’s return worked out very well. WWE sources that we spoke with said that Wyatt’s return was very well received, and that they were very happy with the buzz created in the weeks leading up to WWE Extreme Rules with the QR codes and cryptic videos.

Several WWE sources had been playing up Extreme Rules as a “big night” to media ahead of the weekend. As early as one week after Vince McMahon’s retirement, members of the new WWE regime told Fightful they felt optimistic about Wyatt’s return. A full month before Wyatt returned to WWE, one WWE source was completely convinced that Wyatt was back with WWE and heading back.

Several that are usually in the know were kept out of the loop about the context of the White Rabbit videos until this past week. Some of the references had to be approved, but standard WWE creative were largely hands off. It’s worth noting that the returning Bray Wyatt has a very good relationship with WWE’s new Director of Longterm Creative, Rob Fee. Fee had even pitched a Fiend movie directly to Nick Khan last year before Wyatt’s release.”

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 to a roaring response from the Philadelphia crowd. He then proceeded to blow the lantern off in his trademark style.

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.
