WWE News: Bray Wyatt Returns At Extreme Rules
Once Triple H took over there was a ton of speculation surrounding if and when Bray Wyatt was going to return to WWE. Wyatt was released from WWE in June of 2021. Many wondered if he would ever wrestle or be a part of a major promotion again. However, once the regime change happened in WWE, things started to pick up as to when Wyatt was going to be brought back.

Vignettes started to pop up with QR codes and hints were being dropped about a White Rabbitt. Many assumed this was Wyatt. Then when Rob Fee was hired by WWE as Director of Long-term Creative, the Wyatt noise picked up even more. As Fightful Select and PW Insider noted, Fee though only got his official title last week, had been working on the White Rabbitt Story for months.
Personally, I’ve heard nothing but good things within the company about WWE’s new Director of Longterm Creative hire. Almost entirely behind the buzz that the QR codes brought about

In addition, who better than Fee to write Wyatt’s long-term story? With Wyatt being a horror character, and Fee having written horror for the Marvel world, a great connection for WWE. Things picked up heading into Extreme Rules in Philadelphia, where Bray Wyatt returned to the WWE. And what an entrance it was.
The Wyatt Return was well received backstage and he received a huge pop from the audience. As per PW Insider, Wyatt is exclusive to Smackdown. After his initial debut, let’s see if they can follow up with him.
WWE News: Gallows and Anderson Return on Raw
Wyatt was not the only person returning to WWE. With Gallows and Anderson being free agents after finishing up their time in Impact Wrestling, the pair returned to WWE on the season premiere of RAW. This had been rumoured for a while that they could be coming back. However, it was not going to happen under the Vince McMahon regime. Anderson and Gallows felt mistreated and used and never got to complete their Bullet Club storyline.
With their brother AJ Styles needing help against the Finn Balor led Judgment Day, what better way to return? Anderson and Gallows came back to help their friend. There is so much intrigue now in this storyline. Especially with Finn Balor. If you recall, started Bullet Club with Karl Anderson, before jumping to WWE.
In addition, the Forbidden Door has been open somewhat. Karl Anderson is the Never Openweight Champion in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Though he didn’t appear with the title, it is expected he will be able to work the dates he agreed to prior to signing with WWE.
Switchblade Jay White had some things to say about the return of the pair. and Oh yeah NJPW retweeting WWE. Crossover in the future?
You can’t not give the #GoodBrothers @The_BigLG & @MachineGunKA their flowers for the influence & impact they’ve had and continue to have on this industry.
