Extreme Rules: 5 major returns that can happen on the show tonight
The match card looks decent, but WWE hasn't built up the matches properly. While the in-ring action is likely to be solid, a big factor that could make it one of the better PPVs of the year are the returns of some major superstars.
In this article, let's take a look at five such returns that we could witness tonight on the PPV.
#5 Bray Wyatt
Let's start with arguably the most anticipated returns in pro-wrestling right now. Bray Wyatt's new gimmick and character change after WrestleMania has been one of the best decisions that WWE has made in a long time, with many even calling it the greatest gimmick WWE has produced in this decade.
The sociopath guest-show host Bray has introduced us to his world, inside a room which he calls the Firefly Fun House. He, along with Abby the Witch, Ramblin' Rabbit, Mercy the Buzzard, and Husky the Pig Boy have entertained us while telling a deep story of how Bray is nowhere near good as he portrays himself to be. The revelation of the masked character, Bray's split personality, The Fiend, has taken the fan's excitement to the next level.
With the Firefly Fun House episodes seemingly coming to an end a couple of weeks ago, there have been many instances of Bray's puppets spying on multiple wrestlers in backstage moments on both RAW and SmackDown. This all but confirms that The Fiend has been unleashed and it's only a matter of time before he targets his first victim.
The plan currently looks to let Bray have his first major feud and match at SummerSlam after returning, and for that, he needs to return to the screen ASAP. While WWE could easily book him to do that on RAW or SmackDown, a bigger impact would be if he decides to show up at Extreme Rules tonight.
What could he possibly do and who could he target is a question I'll leave to my dear readers' imagination. But from the looks of it, he seems to be hinting at a feud with Bobby Lashley. Comment below whether you think this would be a good first feud for a returning Wyatt or not.
