Back for more creepy? We’re just past WrestleMania 35 and that means it’s time to shake things up a bit in WWE (not with the official Shakeup mind you as that’s next week). That usually starts on Monday Night Raw, where a lot of wrestlers often get the chance to debut. That wasn’t such a strong case this year, but there was one more thing that seems to be leading somewhere.
This is creepy. Check out the mystery vignette:
This week on Monday Night Raw, a vignette aired, showing a smoking box opening up to reveal a strange kind of puppet that resembled a buzzard. Laughter was heard over the images and a closeup shot of the puppet ended the segment. While not confirmed, this might be regarding the return of Bray Wyatt, who has been missing from WWE TV since September. He has wrestled a few house show matches since then, with the most recent coming at the end of December. Wyatt’s return to TV has been rumored for months.
Opinion: I certainly hope this is Wyatt, but I’m worried about WWE still not knowing how to use him properly. For as much potential as Wyatt has, there is also a point where WWE doesn’t seem to understand that he has to be used a certain way. Wyatt’s disturbing and often supernatural character works when he is dominant and used sparingly, though WWE tends to go with the opposite. Hopefully that isn’t the case this time around.
Do you want this to be Wyatt? What should he do upon his return? Let us know in the comments below.
