For two months, WWE was having vignettes with Bray Wyatt as a deranged children’s show host at the Firefly Fun House, asking people to let him in.
After a while, that was making many fans anxious at what was going on with some newer fans not understanding Wyatt and WWE were building something very unique.
Then, The Fiend appeared. First, it was flashes in the Firefly Fun House segments. Then, he showed up in the ring and attacked Mick Foley. He even used the Mandible Claw on the originator of that hold. Next, he took out Finn Balor and then Kurt Angle.
The Fiend finally appeared at SummerSlam and beat Finn Balor in a squash, a very surprising but welcome result for a newly returning Bray Wyatt.

Now, Ringside News reports that fans should not expect to see much of Bray Wyatt and The Fiend on TV in the future. It isn’t because WWE is not happy with him, but quite the opposite.
WWE loves The Fiend and realizes that they have created something that is their best character since the days when Kane, Mankind and Undertaker were haunting WWE rings. As a matter of fact, the reports indicate that Vince McMahon sees Undertaker and Bray Wyatt in a similar light now.
Much like Undertaker in his later years, WWE wants to keep The Fiend off television outside of special occasions. This will prove that the new Bray Wyatt character is something special and dangerous that could attack at any time.
It will also keep it from being watered down and overused. The more people see The Fiend, the less special it is. Even seeing Bray Wyatt makes it less special in the end.
This is what Bray Wyatt did not appear on Monday Night Raw the night after SummerSlam – not even in a Firefly Fun House segment. With his amazing entrance at SummerSlam, it is likely better to let that simmer as fans wonder what is next.
WWE Monday Night Raw airs Mondays at 8/7c on USA Network.
