On Monday’s episode of Raw, WWE recapped Bray Wyatt’s incredible return from Extreme Rules and hinted at more to come with a video that repeated the phrase “Revel in what you are.” Fans first thought that was all they would see of Wyatt on this occasion, but a footage and a subsequent Twitter post made it clear that Wyatt will come on SmackDown this coming Friday in person and live.
THIS FRIDAY on #SmackDown!
🐇 #BrayWyatt makes his return to the blue brand

Fans will be debating what Wyatt will be doing and who will be joining him all week as they try to understand what exactly they saw at Extreme Rules on Saturday and what the masked video message from this Monday’s Raw signifies. Will the members of the Firefly Funhouse in human form also appear? Or would Wyatt and WWE merely bring back the previous Eater of Worlds character, which fans immensely admired prior to his significant character change to The Fiend?
The fact that WWE is promoting this as “#BrayWyatt makes his return to the blue brand” suggests he will be in his human form and may reveal more about his whereabouts and activities. Most fans are aware that he was let go as a result of financial cuts made by WWE over the past few years. However, in terms of the storyline, Randy Orton torched his character and subsequently defeated him at WrestleMania 37. He vanished after Alexa Bliss turned against him.
Is Wyatt Permanently On SmackDown?
If he stays with the blue brand, that show will feature a tonne of well-known people. The brand separation is less of an issue now than it once was, thus Wyatt might appear on both shows, and video clips might air on every episode of WWE programming across all brands (assuming they continue).
