Bray Wyatt showed up on SmackDown this week to take down Daniel Bryan with a Mandible claw. It appears that those two will be starting a rivalry especially considering the cryptic tweets from Wyatt this morning. Was that the initial plan?
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that last week’s canceled Miz TV segment was supposed to start a feud between Wyatt and the A Lister. Of course, the plane from Saudi Arabia didn’t leave in time so we got Miz vs Tommaso Ciampa instead.
At this time Bray Wyatt vs The Miz is listed for house shows including a steel cage match at their November 30th event in Mexico City. We’ll have to see if The Miz is swapped out for Bryan because the card is always subject to change.
Bray Wyatt did not appear in front of the live Manchester crowd until after both tapings were over this week. That is why there was some confusion with whether he appeared on the show at all until the backstage segment aired.
