Bray Wyatt has been missing from WWE TV since his former tag team partner, Matt Hardy, was forced to step away from his in-ring duties due to nagging injuries. This past Saturday at Starrcade, as reported by the Inquisitr, Wyatt made his surprise return to the WWE — but his appearance didn’t make the televised portion of the event. This left fans to wonder whether the return was just a one time thing for the local crowd, or if he was indeed coming back to television.
It appears that it might be the latter case, as PWinsider.com is reporting that Wyatt has been spotted backstage at Monday Night Raw in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the Fiserv Forum.
Based on his return at Starrcade, it doesn’t appear that Bray Wyatt is going to undergo a gimmick change, as he still came out to the same music — and fans were seen flashing their “fireflies” as he made his way down to the ring. Of course, that doesn’t mean that things won’t change if he appears on TV in short order.
If WWE follows the story line it started on Starrcade, we could see Bray Wyatt enter into a feud with Baron Corbin, as the former champion pinned Corbin twice during the house show. Corbin was originally feuding with Braun Strowman, but since Braun is having elbow surgery, it leaves a hole in the story line that Wyatt could potentially fill nicely.
While Wyatt was spotted backstage, there’s no official word on whether he’ll make his return to TV. However, there’s a good chance that fans will see Bray Wyatt work his way into the show — one way or another.
The last time that Bray Wyatt appeared on WWE TV was on August 13, when he and Hardy lost to the “B Team” of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. Presumably, he’ll be returning as a singles wrestler again, since Matt Hardy is still on the shelf — as are the members of his old Wyatt Family faction.

WWE has announced quite a few matches and segments for Monday Night Raw, including a Seth Rollins open challenge for Intercontinental Championship, a segment with Elias and Bobby Lashley, Finn Balor vs. Baron Corbin, and Bobby Roode and Chad Gable versus The Authors of Pain for the Tag Team titles.
With all of those announced segments and matches, it’ll be interesting to see where Bray Wyatt fits in, if he’s on the show at all.
