Woken Wyatt & Hardy?
Ever since Bray Wyatt was DELETED in the Lake
of Reincarnation at the end of last week’s
Ultimate Deletion match, there has been much
speculation on how the Eater of Feuds will
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported
there were “rumblings” of the Wyatt character
being repackaged following Ultimate Deletion,
and now the happenings at WWE’s live events
might have given a clue…
After Matt teased Bray’s “persona is about
to change” at last Saturday’s house show,
the two faced off the following night at the
Raw live event in Buffalo, New York.
But instead of fighting, the two hugged it
out – prompting an excellent pun run reaction
-So he went into the Lake of Reincarnation
and came out as Brayley.
-Follow the Huggers
-And ‘He’s got the whoooole world, in his
This fits in with one of the most popular
suggestions on yesterday’s WrestleTalk News
poll asking how Wyatt should return – coming

Sadly, we might have to wait a while for those
two to become a team, as that heartwarming
hug isn’t where the story ends.
According to live reports, Bray then tried
to turn that embrace into a Sister Abigail,

Of course, with Matt Hardy entering himself
in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
on last night’s Raw, maybe we’ll see the
debut of Woken Wyatt to help him win that

Jeff Hardy Backstage At WWE Raw
PWInsider are reporting Jeff Hardy was backstage
at last night’s episode of Raw.
While he did appear on the previous week’s
show, that was as Brother Nero in the pre-taped
Ultimate Deletion shot at the Hardy Compound
ten days before.
This is a promising sign for Jeff’s WWE
return – which seemed in jeopardy following
a DWI arrest on Saturday 10th March.
He’s been out with a torn labrum and rotator
cuff since last September, but revealed on
Instagram two weeks ago that he’s completed
his physical rehab.
PWInsider note that he’s since spent all
last week training at the Performance Center,
where he “looked great in the ring”.
While it’s unlikely Jeff will return before
WrestleMania 34, WWE have already announced
he’ll be teaming with his brother Matt as
the Hardy Boyz in a match against the Bar
at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia
on Friday 27th April.
