SmackDown returns with Bray Wyatt making his way down to the ring. Wyatt says he usually aware of how people perceive him. He knows people whisper behind his back and he knows what most people want to see out of him, most people “want to see the fiend” Wyatt says that’s not the man he wants to be anymore. Wyatt says it’s hard for him to explain what he has gone through. Wyatt knows violence is the only language he has every shown everyone, but he wants everyone to know that he did not attack LA Knight.

Wyatt is cut off by a strange video being played on the titantron, scenes from Wyatt’s past are shown with cuts to the “Howdy” character we have seen before.

Immediately after this video we cut to LA Knight being interviewed backstage. Knight says that Wyatt gets to stand in the ring and fill the world with his trash and stand their without facing consequences for what Wyatt did, and that if he wasn’t standing there injured, he would give Wyatt the consequences himself.
