5 creepiest WWE moments in 2017
Bray Wyatt has given fans the chills on a few occasions, but he doesn't top the list.
If you’re a die-hard WWE viewer and the culmination of multi-year storylines is your thing, then it’s been a good year. From the recent Shield reunion to The Undertaker’s retirement and so much more, we’ve been provided with plenty of memorable moments in 2017.
However, it’s also been a good year for fans of creepiness; fans of scary segments; fans who long for the days of the Attitude Era weirdness to return; fans who want to watch a wrestling show and get a little bit spooked along the way.
In this article, we want to show our appreciation for the weird side from the world of sports entertainment, so we’ve put together five of the creepiest moments in WWE so far this year.
#5 Bray Wyatt's revenge on Randy Orton
It’s been a rough year for Wyatt. Back in February, just when he thought he had an ally in Randy Orton, “The New Face of Fear” proudly told the WWE Universe how he had allowed the Royal Rumble winner the keys to his kingdom: the Wyatt Family Compound.
Appearing on the big screen in the arena, Orton spent the next five minutes burning the Compound — and the soul of Sister Abigail — to the ground, while Wyatt could only look on in despair from the middle of the SmackDown Live ring.
The creepiest moment during the build to their WrestleMania match came a fortnight later when Orton was interrupted during an interview backstage with Renee Young.
All of a sudden, the lights went out. When they flickered back on, Orton was surrounded by 10 men, all wearing sheep masks. Wyatt warned that his one flaw had been exposed by “The Viper” and revealed that the power of Sister Abigail lived on… inside "The New Face of Fear".
