WWE makes a lot of interesting decisions and apparently, Bray Wyatt’s awesome human head lantern was too hot for YouTube.
We previously reported that WWE removed Wyatt’s Titantron video. It seems like they did some doctoring to Bray Wyatt’s Summerslam entrance as well.
One of the best parts of the entrance was cut out so people watching on YouTube had no idea what Wyatt was holding. The lantern made up like his own head was amazing and you can get a very close look at it here. One thing’s for sure, you won’t find it on YouTube.
The interesting part of this is WWE initially uploaded a video of the whole entrance complete with close-up lantern shot, but then they deleted it an hour later and immediately replaced it with the one you can see below.
WWE edited out Bray Wyatt’s human head lantern for some reason. The original video that aired live on the WWE Network featured a very good close-up of the head which you can see below. For some reason it made some wide shots, but the close-up it didn’t make the YouTube cut.
Let’s hope this isn’t a sign that WWE changed their mind about The Fiend’s new lantern. Then again, he is making his way to the ring while essentially holding a decapitated head. Even if it’s his own, there are parts of the world where that happens for real. So maybe WWE decided to make a judgement call and nix the lantern.
