Back in April, Bray Wyatt suffered a calf injury on the very first night of the WWE European tour while wrestling Roman Reigns in Milan. This was, of course, terrible timing, because it came two nights after Wyatt appeared on the verge of a new major push and breakthrough as a world-conquering tweener, firing Roman Reigns-shaped bullets from an imaginary gun.
Since his injury, the entire Wyatt Family (currently consisting of Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman, being that Luke Harper is out of commission with a leg injury of his own) has been off WWE television, because it doesn’t make sense to have a couple of directionless hillbillies wandering around. But fear not! Bray Wyatt is scheduled to return to WWE television next week, according to Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com.
Johnson says Wyatt is scheduled for “next week’s set of TV tapings,” so it’s unclear whether he’ll be at RAW, SmackDown, or both — although RAW would certainly be the smart bet, given how WWE likes to handle things.
Now it’s time to wantonly speculate on how Wyatt will return, whether he’ll have the entire Family in tow (probably) and what alignment he’ll have when he reappears. Will he be the seventh person in the Money in the Bank match? How would that affect the direction of the title picture as we prepare for the brand split?
So many questions. Luckily, we’ll have answers very, very soon.
