During the Friday Night Smackdown episode that aired two weeks ago, LA Knight was interviewed backstage about what he wanted to do in the next few weeks on the blue show, with the former NXT having a bad encounter during his interview.
While he was answering questions from his interviewer, some images of Wyatt were staged on the screen behind Knight, with the symbol of him standing still on the screen for a few seconds. After seeing this interference, LA Knight got angry with the WWE crew asking them not to allow these interruptions, as this was his moment and his commercial and he didn't want to be disturbed.
Not even time to turn around again to talk to the interviewer, who instead of her, Knight found us Bray Wyatt, who introduced himself to LA Knight trying to intimidate him. All of this didn't help, however, because with his usual verve and his sharp tongue, LA Knight responded in kind to Wyatt, insulting his characters and making fun of the alter ego of the Fiend, who at this point has he replied with a head in the face, leaving LA Knight sore.
The week after, we also saw a clash between the two, with LA Knight who in response slapped his opponent twice, but soon ended up under a pile of props, passed out, attacked by who knows who or by.
Bray Wyatt brings The Fiend back to life
For weeks, Bray Wyatt has been back on the scene with WWE, with an almost entirely new character, with the former Universal Champion never playing the evil The Fiend or mentioning him in one of his many promos.
In the last few weeks, in fact, we have only seen several masked characters appear in the backstage of the episodes of the blue show and we have also met the famous Uncle Howdy. Tonight, in the latest promo played by Bray in the Smackdown ring, the former WWE Champion wanted to name the Fiend for the first time, telling fans that they know they want to see him, that is his evil side, but that they won't, because he wants to be a different man.
To interrupt the athlete, Uncle Howdy obviously arrived, who told Bray not to be a liar, because he knows exactly that sooner or later the evil and the dark side of him will come out stronger than ever. WWE legend Ric Flair is happy that Bray Wyatt has returned to the company and also said that the former world champion is one of the classiest guys in the business.
"Well, talking about Bray [Wyatt], I'm happy he's back. I think he's an extremely talented guy. I never understood why he was gone, to begin with. I'm glad he's back, I think he's very talented and, like I said, one of the classiest guys you'll meet in the business today," said Flair.
