Since Paul “Triple H” Levesque took over WWE as the Head of Creative, rumors have been swirling about the possible return of Bray Wyatt, his “The Fiend” character, and potentially the entire Wyatt Family.
Fans hoping for Wyatt’s reemergence got teased even more during a commercial break of this past Friday’s WWE SmackDown, with many now believing the return is imminent.
WWE delivering off-the-air live segments to fans during commercial breaks is nothing out of the ordinary, but on Friday Night in Anaheim, something unusual did happen.
Circulating online, multiple videos show the Honda Center’s lights being cut off with the sound of “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane, a classic rock song in the psychedelic realm, playing in the dark.
Shortly after WWE started the live-only segment, fans in attendance all held up their phones with the flashlights on, forming a visual that caught a lot of comparisons to Bray Wyatt’s fireflies from the past.
There were different reactions amongst the WWE Universe as fans were giving their shoot on what they thought was going on, but most were in agreement that this could possibly be WWE setting up the return of Wyatt.

While many are excited about the possible return of “The Fiend,” it is important to note that a lot of the WWE Universe pointed out the fact that this could be associated with Karrion Kross, as Kross’ moniker in Lucha Underground was “The White Rabbit.”

Wishfulthinking? Or is “The Fiend” returning?
