Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31st last year and since then the former WWE Superstar has already teased what he might do next. From what it seems, it once seemed he would be making his way to AEW far earlier than expected, as WWE may have let him have a shorter noncompete. Wyatt also appeared on March 13th, at the Showcase of Legends 7 event in Albany, New York. Braun Strowman was released last year as well.
He finally returned during WWE Extreme Rules as well, as fans simply lost their minds. He cut an emotional promo on Friday Night Smackdown earlier this month.
Fightful Select reported that there are plans to include several pieces of Wyatt’s past. That was in the plans as of Thursday. One thing that was said was that they wanted to bring in the rocking chair that Wyatt used during his early years as part of the Wyatt family. Also, there has been talk of The Fiend mask being ripped up by Bray or another talent.
Fightful added that a WWE source claimed that rumors about Wyatt vs. Reigns shortly starting a feud are false because “Where would we go from there?” It was also reported that another person in the company said they learned from the Fiend run. Seth Rollins has said publicly that the previous Fiend run was difficult on the people he worked with because The Fiend had to be booked to be indestructible, thus burying others in some cases. Others have said similar things privately.
