It went well. There are all kinds of ways to bring a wrestler back to television and if done right, they can be very effective. Some of the best ways involve a surprise, but there is something to be said about letting fans know what is coming without knowing what is coming, and now we know how that went when WWE tried it again with the return of a major name.
Over the weekend, Bray Wyatt made his return to WWE after over a year away from the company, appearing at the end of Extreme Rules as the reveal of the White Rabbit. According to Fightful Select, the return was well received in WWE and the company was very pleased with the reaction on social media. Some in WWE had been optimistic about a Wyatt return since Vince McMahon retired from the company in July. There is no word on what Wyatt will be doing in WWE.
Opinion: I think it would be safe to call Wyatt’s return a success, at least based on the crowd reactions. The fans were happy to have him back and now the question becomes what is next for him. Having a great return is one thing but WWE needs to come up with something else that keeps up the interest. That is the hard part, but at least they have a good start.
What did you think of Wyatt’s return? How will his second WWE run go? Let us know in the comments below.
