Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE was an exciting event in WWE history. Triple H gets lot of credit for arranging that, but the truth is that Wyatt’s return was in motion before Vince McMahon even retired. Now, Bray Wyatt is off television, and there are a lot of questions about his status before WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 39 had a match booked for Bray Wyatt and Bobby Lashley. Despite Uncle Howdy’s involvement, Wyatt was the man in the marquee match, but his absence put a big question mark over their contest.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Bray Wyatt’s current situation is very interesting. He’s been off television for a week or so, which puts his WrestleMania match in apparent jeopardy.

“Man, nobody knows what’s going on there. Not a mention of Bray Wyatt all night [during RAW]. Not a mention of Bobby Lashley all night.”


“I mean, it looks to me like he’s, I mean I don’t wanna say it looks like he’s off the show, but it looks like he’s off the show, because they are not mentioning his name at all. They did a little flash with that Bray Wyatt stuff on Friday’s show, so he’s with the company. There was another video where they showed him briefly, so it’s not like he’s been scrubbed from anything, but he was supposed to be at the show Friday night. So whatever it is, it’s a health issue, and the health issue hasn’t cleared up yet, and you know if they were confident that it was, they would at least have Bobby Lashley out there doing promos and stuff.”

It was noted that “maybe they don’t wanna commit to” a Bobby Lashley vs Uncle Howdy match, because Bray Wyatt might return. Either way, this situation with Bray Wyatt is still very interesting.

Dave Meltzer also made it clear that Bray Wyatt was never booked to be on WWE RAW this week. That being said, he still missed SmackDown last week, and they made no mention of his WrestleMania match on RAW.

This is a very interesting situation, and WWE’s silence is saying a lot. On that note, click here for big spoiler on Uncle Howdy’s true identity.
