Up until very recently Bray Wyatt hadn’t been seen on WWE television since his Deleter of Worlds tag team with Matt Hardy ended this past fall. That changed in April with his repacking into a new character who lives in the fictional Firefly Fun house, a twisted play on the classic children’s show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Wyatt is now much leaner, sports a cleaned up beard, and numerous new tattoos. His new character lives in the Firefly Fun House with a group of puppets: Mercy the Buzzard, Abby the Witch, and Ramblin Rabbit. Through pre-taped segments fans have come to know each character and watched as Wyatt performs increasing disturbing and sinister segments as an eerie children’s entertainer.
But all of these segments are pre-taped. We’ve yet to see Wyatt debut on live WWE television, and there haven’t been any hints as to when that will happen. Until now.
Last night on the June 25 episode of Raw we received our first concrete piece of evidence that Bray Wyatt is likely due to start directly interacting with the rest of the roster. As the Miz was headed to the ring last night for Miz TV, Abby the Witch can be seen peeking out from behind him. This tweet from WWE has a photo of the easy to miss clue.
Later in the evening Mercy the Buzzard was spotted lurking over the WWE champion Kofi Kingston’s shoulder as he prepared for a pancake party.
Who will we see next, Ramblin Rabbit or the dreaded Fiend himself? Yowie Wowie!
