According to PW Insider, some metrics on Wyatt’s return in regard to WWE’s social media accounts are in, and those numbers are impressive. Over 7 million different reactions were made across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok at the time of the report.

* YouTube: 1.86 million views (between two videos)
* Twitter: 1.2 million views, 5,252 retweets, 27,200 likes
* Instagram: 437,045 likes
* Facebook: Around 500,000 views
* TikTok: 73,000 views with 20,000 likes

This is great news for WWE, because Wyatt was one of the more popular superstars from the 2010s. His ability to reinvent himself over the years earned a lot of respect from the fandom and when he became The Fiend, that gimmick increased his fandom.

Wyatt’s return may be the best audiences have seen in professional wrestling in over a decade, and will be talked about for years to come. We will have to see what’s next for Bray, but he made a lot of noise in Philly at Extreme Rules.
