Update on Dash Wilder's Injury, Sheamus Return Vignette, What Happened After Smackdown

Update on Dash Wilder's Injury, Sheamus Return Vignette, What Happened After Smackdown
- As noted, The Revival announced before Thursday's WWE Live Event in Cincinnati that Wilder was unable to compete because his "jingle bells" were hurt.


It looks like Wilder is already back in action for WWE, as the dark match before last night's SmackDown from the Little Caesars Area in Detroit, MI saw The Revival's Wilder and Scott Dawson defeat Kalisto and Gran Metalik of Lucha House Party. The Revival won the match with a Shatter Machine to kick off the final blue brand TV event of the year and the decade.

Our correspondent in Detroit noted that Wilder showed no signs of an injury, and that The Revival were very over with the crowd.

- WWE aired another "coming soon" return vignette for Sheamus on this week's SmackDown episode, which you can see above. The Celtic Warrior continued to rant about the state of SmackDown, about how he left the brand with men who could never be worthy of being champion, or worthy of facing him. Sheamus also said he left 9 months ago but he's back and ready to break down the door on a whole new SmackDown.



- "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt did not appear live in the ring on this week's WWE SmackDown episode, but he did work the dark main event after the show went off the air.

The dark main event saw The Fiend briefly fighting against Daniel Bryan. Our correspondent noted that Wyatt came out with his custom Fiend title belt for the match, and received the loudest pops of the night before, during, and after the bout. The Fiend used Sister Abigail and the Mandible Claw on Bryan during the match. The red light stayed on over the arena during and after the match, and was not well-received by fans in attendance.

As noted at this link, Bryan vs. The Fiend is now official for the 2020 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view as well.
