Bray Wyatt is to receive a slight refresh when he returns to in-ring competition.

According to Wrestlevotes, Wyatt's character will remain mostly the same, but he will be brought back for a babyface singles push.

Wyatt's return is a result of tag team partner Matt Hardy dealing with a series of injuries, with Hardy's in-ring future up in the air.
