• Why Bray Wyatt Didn’t Appear On RAW Or SmackDown
At SummerSlam 2019, The Fiend made his in-ring debut and defeated former Universal Champion Finn Balor.
Bray Wyatt then didn’t make an appearance on this week’s RAW or SmackDown.
According to Brad Shepard, WWE officials are trying to build mystique for this gimmick as they think Wyatt can be a big draw for them:
“The idea to keep The Fiend off of RAW was to build mystique for his character, but really also the beginning toward the soft pull-back for the brand split. They now see Bray as a potential draw to the SmackDown show which will be a focus.”
