Uncle Howdy finally made his in person physical debut on the recent SmackDown. It was a different person altogether and not just Bray Wyatt’s alter ego as previously assumed.
Before the show, WWE tweeted a video from a tiktok account called _comewithme which looks like an account associated with Wyatt. In the disturbing video, LA Knight is tied to a chair with duct tape on his mouth. He is wearing the mask seen earlier in Wyatt’s vignettes & someone is tormenting him. As the mask is removed, it really is LA Knight. The other person is Uncle Howdy himself & he appears at the very end of the video. There are also some coordinates in the video which lead to the Allstate Arena near Chicago, Illinois where this week’s SmackDown is taking place.

On the show itself, LA Knight arrived looking ok in spite of his kidnapping and torture. This seemed like a break in the storyline continuity. Knight came to the ring to call out Wyatt in an effort to put an end to these mind games and tactics. The audience expected to see a physical altercation between them but that did not happen either. Wyatt allowed Knight to stomp on him, which he did. Just then, LA’s kidnapper Uncle Howdy arrived at the entrance to save Bray. He tipped his hat and the arena echoed with his maniacal laughter. Seeing him in flesh, Knight stopped his ongoing assault.
Uncle Howdy finally arrives!
But who is he I wonder 🤔💭#SmackDown pic.twitter.com/iglPpDe7cZ

Another angle to Bray Wyatt is developing on RAW. His former partner Alexa Bliss is teasing joining him as well. Wyatt’s logo keeps flashing behind her now and then, rendering her memerised. Also she tried to perform the Sister Abigail on RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair while in a trance like state. This means that she will join him and his Wyatt 6 stable that he is teasing even before his return.
Since Uncle Howdy is here in person, it will be very interesting to see who is the superstar playing him.
