Bray Wyatt: The Fiend’s opponent confirmed for WWE SummerSlam. This will be his first match on WWE TV since his return in April this year.

The WWE has destroyed many careers with their abysmal and often questionable booking. Many have fallen to the wayside with only a few managing to resurrect their careers from the initial set back. Very few further have managed to do it twice.

Bray Wyatt has overcome the failed gimmicks of Husky Harris and the Wyatt Family honcho to become a sensation in the WWE. His new gimmick of a creepy children show host has caught fire with the fans. To make it even better, he now has a new alter ego to boot: The Fiend.

The new character will now be put to test at WWE SummerSlam next month. The fans will finally get to see what Wyatt will bring in the squared circle when he takes on Finn Balor at the biggest party of the Summer.

Wicked Wyatt

Post Wrestlemania, Wyatt began featuring in pre-taped segments called Firefly Fun House. Fans instantly fell in love with the new character and were desperately waiting for his in-ring return. Wyatt did exactly that last week on Raw when he attacked Finn Balor out of nowhere.

On the latest episode of SmackDown, Balor came out to address the unprovoked ambush. He said that he had no idea why Bray Wyatt came for him but he was not afraid of him. He added that he’s faced fear before and then laid out a challenge for SummerSlam.

A new episode of Firefly Fun House then aired where Bray Wyatt accepted the challenge. The video ended with a brief glimpse of the Fiend, suggesting that Wyatt would battle as his alter-ego. Balor on the other hand, may not appear as the Demon. If he comes out as himself in their showdown, this will be his first appearance at SummerSlam without the demon persona.

SummerSlam will take place on August 11, 2019 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
