Bray Wyatt WWE Career
When Bray Wyatt debuted on the main roster in 2013, he was one of the most captivating characters WWE had seen in a long time.
Throughout his feuds with Daniel Bryan, The Shield, and John Cena, it was quite clear that WWE had huge plans for “The Eater of Worlds” and he was going to be one of the company’s top stars for many years to come.
But that was then and this is now, and even the biggest Bray fan would agree that his believability as a character has been severely damaged over the last three years by major losses, particularly at WrestleMania, and underwhelming storylines.
Bray Wyatt’s long-awaited WWE Championship reign was, quite frankly, a farce. It lasted 49 days, he only had one successful title namely “defence”, where he didn’t get a televised rematch, therefore he was one of five people to hold the title within the space of four months.
His run with the SmackDown Live Tag Team titles a few weeks earlier wasn’t much better. Teaming with Randy Orton, they won the championships from Heath Slater & Rhyno at TLC 2016 but lost them to American Alpha just 23 days later.
For a character who already had a reputation as someone who wins every so often but, when it comes down to it, can’t win the big one, it was typical Bray to lose both titles shortly after winning them.
The general feeling about the former Wyatt Family leader, much like The Undertaker in years gone by, was that he didn’t need titles because his character and storylines were interesting enough that there was no reason for him to chase any gold.
Bray Wyatt Injury
Somehow, Bray Wyatt never became the star he should have. He has always been in the mix at the top, but somehow he’s never grabbed the brass ring. It did seem like matters were improving when he was teaming with ‘Woken’ Matt Hardy. But then Hardy got injured and Wyatt simply disappeared.
Yes, he vanished into a mist just like he is known to do on television. Only he has not shown up for weeks and months altogether. He went on to delete all his Twitter posts, except for a couple.
Bray Wyatt has always been a great singles superstar. But one can argue that he’s always been at his best when he was a part of his stable- The Wyatt Family. Back when Luke Harper and Erick Rowan (and later, Braun Strowman were at his side), Bray Wyatt seemed like a big deal.
We all know that Wyatt is not injured because he did compete at Starrcade and other Live Events. Therefore, he could have been waiting for Harper and Rowan to heal up and join forces with them to take over RAW again. The thing is that while The Bludgeon Brothers were a solid tag team, they were no Wyatt Family, to be quite honest.
Former WWE champion Wyatt has have been missing from weekly television since August of 2018 and hasn’t wrestled for WWE since Starrcade late last year, but the company had been teasing him returning recent weeks with a series of mysterious and creepy vignettes. Wyatt re-emerged on Monday Night Raw this week as…. a potentially deranged children’s show host.
Wyatt welcomed viewers to the “Firefly Fun House” and explained that his former self is “dead now.”Wyatt then used a chainsaw to destroy a cardboard cut-out of himself. Wyatt’s return got off to a strong start, but it will be interesting to see how the host character will transition from pre-taped packages to live in-ring action. WWE’s next pay-per-view is May 19th at Money In The Bank, which makes sense as a potential live re-debut for Wyatt.

WWE RAW: 5 Things Bray Wyatt secretly told us through the Firefly Fun House segment
They say that if you scour a desert long enough, you find an oasis. Such is also the case with WWE RAW, where Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House is quite clearly the best thing about the show.
The rest of the show feels rushed, almost like no thought was put into it at all. But then the Firefly Fun House segments come along and you are reminded of what a creative genius Bray Wyatt truly is.
This week, he told us more through that 2-minute segment than WWE told us during the course of the show. I will list down the points that I found particularly interesting, for your reading pleasure, right here, in this very article.
Be sure to share your thoughts, views, and opinions in the comments below.
#5 The masked creature is known as ‘The Fiend’
If you Google the word limbo, this is the first meaning you get:
The supposed abode of the souls of unbaptized infants, and of the just who died before Christ’s coming.
And of course, this is the more common meaning of the word, also procured from a Google search:
An uncertain period of awaiting a decision or resolution; an intermediate state or condition.
There’s a third meaning as well, which has to do with the display picture of this very article:
If you put everything together and focus on ‘limbo’ which has been the focus of the riddle Wyatt asked on Twitter, as well as the meanings that have been assigned here, you will know that he has been indicating that a Supernatural creature has been lying in wait, waiting to be unleashed upon the world.
This creature is called ‘The Fiend’ as Wyatt told us this week. It is who Wyatt transforms into when he puts on his scary looking mask.
