Several reports are coming in on social media that former WWE champion Bray Wyatt has returned to action. The Eater of Worlds came back at the company’s Starrcade event, where he answered Baron Corbin’s open challenge.
Wyatt has not been seen in WWE since his tag team partner Matt Hardy decided to step away from the ring. Wyatt has not been used by WWE at house shows or on TV since Hardy’s departure.
Many fans have surely been wondering when the company was planning on bringing Bray back to the fold. Perhaps the time has not been right for him, as WWE may have been waiting for the right moment to reinsert him into the storyline. Some believed that Bray would eventually reunite The Wyatt Family at some point but that has not materialized as of yet.
Bray won the WWE Championship at The Elimination Chamber in 2017 and for many fans, it was indeed the crowing achievement of his career. Bray ultimately lost the title to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 33. Wyatt has not held the championship since then though now he could be on his way back to title contention.
Daniel Bryan is the new WWE champion and he has a history with Bray Wyatt. WWE may bring Bray back to the blue brand and if so, the two men could go to war over the title. Bray’s only other championships in WWE are the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team titles.
