WWE brought back Bray Wyatt during Vince McMahon’s absence, but this was something that Mr. McMahon was working on prior to his short-lived retirement. Uncle Howdy is now in the mix, but his identity is being kept a closely-guarded secret.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Uncle Howdy’s identity is a secret. To make sure that nobody knows who is playing that character, whoever is in the costume doesn’t even take it off backstage.

Whoever Uncle Howdy is, WWE is playing it close to the vest. Fightful has inquired repeatedly about who has portrayed the Bray Wyatt-contingent gimmick. We were told that thus far, the person who is in the outfit doesn’t take it off backstage in front of other people to reveal themselves.

Many fans believe that Bo Dallas is Uncle Howdy, but it could be anyone at this point. WWE have a few options, but it is certainly someone who has a mean Sister Abigail in them.


We will have to see what is in store for Uncle Howdy and Bray Wyatt. Alexa Bliss will very likely be a part of the mix as well. Keep checking back with Ringside News as we continue monitoring this ongoing situation.
