WWE Rumors: Backstage news on Bray Wyatt's return
What’s the story?
Bray Wyatt is fit again but WWE have no idea how to bring him back. All this according to Wrestling Votes who report that WWE creative still wonders if he should be brought back before WrestleMania or after.
In case you didn’t know…
Wyatt returned from injury during Starrcade late in 2018 but never made it RAW or SmackDown. Reports suggest that he was involved in a car accident and that is why he has been kept off TV for a prolonged period.
He was first expected to replace Braun Strowman at TLC in the match vs Baron Corbin. But when that did not happen, people thought he would be back for Royal Rumble. As expected, nothing happened during the first PPV of the season too.
The heart of the matter
WWE have the main roster filled and every single one of the top stars are occupied is one storyline or the other that they have no space to squeeze Wyatt in.
Wrestling Votes tweeted: “Noteworthy: I’ve heard both sides of story, from two different sources regarding Bray Wyatt. 1 He’s poised to return prior to WM & have a featured match or 2. They are saving his return for post Mania RAW / SD to make a larger impact. Must be Mania season. News gets more erratic.”
The only chance they have is putting him against Braun Strowman but that too is a long shot. Another slot they have is making him the 4th member of The Shield. However, that would require a lot of backstory and future planning which WWE might not do right now.
We will have to wait and see what WWE Creative plan as there are absolutely zero updates from their side about Wyatt right now.
