Bray Wyatt turned out to be the “White Rabbit” and has returned to WWE in an epic comeback.
Wyatt, who was surprisingly released by the company in July 2021, passed the weeks of “White Rabbit” teasing and returned to WWE at the end of the Extreme Rules pay-per-view at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.
After Matt Riddle submitted Seth Rollins in the main event of Fight Pit, the lights went out as he returned to the stage with special referee Daniel Cormier as Michael Cole signed the show. Wyatt’s voice could then be heard singing his signature “He’s got the whole world in his hand” and the spotlight hit people dressed as each of his former “FireFly Funhouse” characters and Wyatt’s former Fiend character.
As the crowd began to buzz, a door appeared and a video package of a ransacked FireFly Funhouse was shown as its theme music played. A television in the room began to hum and a white masked figure appeared on the screen. The door to the arena was then shown and opened to a blue light. The figure emerged holding Wyatt’s signature lantern, before removing the mask to bask in the chants of “Holy s–t!”. Wyatt then blew the lantern and a logo similar to the one he uses when his Twitter profile hit the screen just to further confirm who it was.
It was the product of weeks of speculation and clues after WWE started playing Jefferson Airplane’s ‘White Rabbit’ with the lights off or flashing red – similar to those used by Wyatt’s ‘Fiend’ character. at live events and a few commercial breaks on Raw and SmackDowns. QR codes leading to clues to the identity of the “White Rabbit” hinting at a return of Wyatt along with a few other WWE talents to keep fans away, have appeared on Raw and SmackDown in recent weeks. WWE recently hired former Marvel and Disney writer Rob Fee, who has ties to Wyatt, as its new long-term creative director and he has been involved in the White Rabbit campaign, according to a Fightful Select report.
WWE wasted no time showing off the White Rabbit on Saturday, with the latest QR Code video interrupting the opener between Imperium and the Brawling Brutes. It’s unclear which version of Wyatt we’re getting. It felt like he left “FireFly Funhouse” and The Fiend behind and returned to an updated version of his original WWE “Eater of Worlds” persona, but anything is possible with Wyatt.
Wyatt, 35, is considered one of the best creative minds in wrestling, and bringing him back into the fold is a huge win for WWE and Triple H. Last we saw Wyatt, whose real names are , he was paired with Alexa Bliss and lost to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37.
The shard had begun to break away from the horror movie-based “Fiend” persona with two losses to Orton, a triple threat loss to Roman Reigns and a loss to Braun Strowman at Money in the Bank in space. about a year. . The character also included a twisted character similar to Mr. Rogers in the “Firefly Funhouse”.
