Bray Wyatt has seemed mentally disturbed ever since his return at WWE Extreme Rules a couple of months ago. WWE has given multiple hints through cryptic messages that he is indeed suffering from a kayfabe split personality disorder. They have even showed his doctor’s diagnosis and voice note to confirm this fact.
This week on SmackDown, he took to the ring to talk to the crowd in his usual fashion. He demanded an apology from LA Knight for thinking he was Uncle Howdy. Wyatt revealed that he is not Uncle Howdy and has never been him as thought by the WWE Universe as well. Howdy had himself physically appeared last week proving everyone wrong about Bray being Howdy. As he was communicating, he seemed to be struggling owing to his mental issues. He then went down on his knees as if trying to regain his composure.
Then out of the blue, Wyatt lunged and grabbed the in-ring cameraman and put the Mandible Claw on him. The cameraman struggled to get out but couldn’t as Wyatt’s fingers were firmly inside his mouth. WWE authority figure Adam Pearce and other officials had to come to the ring to rescue him from this extreme torture. The cameraman seemed unconscious before they removed him from the ring.

Commentator Michael Cole later said that Pearce sent Wyatt out of the arena. Cole also revealed that Pearce was consulting WWE Headquarters to discuss an appropriate solution to this drama.
The cameraman has now been identified as being played by local talent JT Energy. Energy, a student of Seth Rollins, had previously appeared on the December 23rd, 2019 episode of WWE RAW. He had faced former WWE superstar Erick Rowan in a losing effort. He has confirmed it was indeed him by tweeting, “I may never been the same again after being attacked by Bray Wyatt on Smackdown”
