The unholy abomination known as The Fiend has returned to WWE television. Bray Wyatt’s unhinged split personality appeared in the closing moments of Friday Night Smackdown, attacking Alexa Bliss in a horrifying message sent to Universal Champion Braun Strowman.
Wyatt appeared in a segment of “Firefly Fun House” earlier in the show, warning the WWE Universe that his demonic alter ego was about to be unleashed upon the world once again.
Fans caught a glimpse of The Fiend at WWE’s recent pay-per-view, The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, as he emerged from a glowing swamp moments after Wyatt… drowned Braun Strowman?
We’re told the “Monster Among Men” is still alive – although we haven’t seen him since being dragged deep underwater in one of the most bizarre segments in WWE history.
Alexa Bliss also made a surprise appearance in that cinematic “match”. I’m not going to get into the specifics of it all, but I think the general consensus is that she was either Sister Abigail, or a projection of Strowman’s subconscious. Maybe both. Possibly neither.
Professional wrestling in 2020, I guess.
Friday Night Smackdown went off the air with The Fiend slowly, terrifyingly stalking Bliss as she sat in the ring with a look of pure horror on her face. He then applied the world’s most slow-motion Mandible Claw, violently assaulting the former women’s champion, just to fuel our nightmares.
