WWE Extreme Rules was an amazing show that featured some stellar matches. The show was headlined by Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle who battled in the Fight Pit. Then they had a big reveal after that closing contest that we’re still talking about today.

As good as that fight pit match was, it was what happened after the match that has fans buzzing. As Matt Riddle was celebrating his victory at the entrance ramp with Daniel Cormier, the lights went out and members of Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House made their return.

It finally happened, after weeks of WWE planting mysterious clues and vignettes, Bray Wyatt had made his much-anticipated return to the company. The buildup to the reveal was brilliant that couldn’t have been thrown together in an instant.

According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Bray Wyatt’s WWE return was set in motion as soon as Vince McMahon retired from the company. It is also reported that several people were kept out of the loop regarding Wyatt’s return including the standard WWE creative team.


“As if there was any doubt, Bray Wyatt’s return worked out very well. WWE sources that we spoke with said that Wyatt’s return was very well received, and that they were very happy with the buzz created in the weeks leading up to WWE Extreme Rules with the QR codes and cryptic videos.

Several WWE sources had been playing up Extreme Rules as a “big night” to media ahead of the weekend. As early as one week after Vince McMahon’s retirement, members of the new WWE regime told Fightful they felt optimistic about Wyatt’s return. A full month before Wyatt returned to WWE, one WWE source was completely convinced that Wyatt was back with WWE and heading back.

Several that are usually in the know were kept out of the loop about the context of the White Rabbit videos until this past week. Some of the references had to be approved, but standard WWE creative were largely hands off. It’s worth noting that the returning Bray Wyatt has a very good relationship with WWE’s new Director of Longterm Creative, Rob Fee. Fee had even pitched a Fiend movie directly to Nick Khan last year before Wyatt’s release.”

Now that Wyatt is back for another WWE run, it will be interesting to see if they actually use him properly this time. Only time will tell if he receives a push to the top.
