• Triple H Comments On Bray Wyatt Returning To WWE
Former Universal Champion Bray Wyatt returned to WWE at Extreme Rules 2022.
Fans were delighted by the return of Eater Of Worlds after over a year, and his return drew impressive numbers on all of WWE’s social media channels.
During an interview with The Wrap, WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H had the following to say about Wyatt’s long-awaited return to the company:
“We asked ourselves how we could bring back Bray Wyatt in the most engaging way possible.
So we created ‘The White Rabbit Project,’ intended to lead our audience down this literal rabbit hole of content to help build anticipation for Wyatt’s return at ‘Extreme Rules’ on Peacock.
It started with flickering lights in arenas and continued with the release of other easter eggs, like hidden QR codes within episodes of ‘SmackDown’ and ‘RAW’ that led viewers to more clues that kept them guessing, and tuning in, each week.
It culminated in what we believe was a massive payoff for our fans – and for WWE.
This is a great example of how WWE is uniquely positioned as a sports and entertainment property to harness the power of our shows and our social following to develop multimedia, long-term storytelling that can help produce meaningful aggregated audiences.”
