Bray Wyatt returned to WWE during Extreme Rules, capping off brilliant marketing campaign centered around a White Rabbit. Through it all, he never forgot about those who stood by him, including one who is no longer with us.
WWE put a cryptic and outstanding angle together as Bray Wyatt’s return. As Ringside News exclusively reported, the company brought in director Rob Fee to make sure it was done correctly.
Fans were quick to spot a few homages to Bray Wyatt’s past during that vignette. One thing that was seen had to do with Brodie Lee and Erick Redbeard’s former Bludgeon Brother gimmick.
When Wyatt walked through the door on that Extreme Rules stage, a light, that was similar to Brodie Lee’s AEW debut as the Exalted One, erupted through the door. Abby The Witch’s mask was also the same that Brodie Lee used during the Bludgeon Brothers gimmick.
This tribute was on purpose, because everything about that return was done in a very careful fashion. Only time will tell what’s next, but fans certainly noticed how much this return meant to the entire pro wrestling landscape.
