In the Arena:
Back from the break and it’s time for Bray Wyatt’s first SmackDown appearance since The Fiend defeated Kevin Owens on October 9, 2020. Ominous music starts up and eventually transitions with a hip-hop/rock beat and lyrics. The door from Extreme Rules is kicked open, and the light shines through. Out comes Wyatt with his lantern as fans cheer and light up the Smoothie King Center with fireflies. Wyatt enters the ring as his new theme continues.
The music suddenly stops as the crowd erupts. Wyatt is standing in the middle of the ring, with the lights still low. Fans chant “welcome back!” and Wyatt takes the mic. He says he’s incredibly grateful and really, really nervous to be here. He never thought this would happen. Wyatt says this is just him, a version of him that he never got to introduce to the fans before. Just him being him, genuine him for the first time. Wyatt chuckles and fans pop.
He says he wants to share the past year of his life. He lost a lot of things. He lost his career. He lost his self confidence. He lost two people very close to him. He lost his way. He got to a point where he thought everything he did here was meaningless. He thought nothing he did mattered to anyone. Bray says he was wrong. Once I was done feeling sorry for myself and go back out in the world again. People would say ‘Thank you Bray’ and ask when would he come home. Bray says there were people who came to him and they thanked him because they were in a time of need and they lost people and self confidence. They said they were weak and vulnerable. They said they found his words and they told him that he saved their lives.
Bray says he does not think about that. I can sit here today and look at you in the eyes. You were there when I was weak, vulnerable, and down. Thank you. You saved his life. You wouldn’t let me alone. Every time I tried to run away and hide, you found me. You are the reason…
the Wyatt moth logo suddenly appears on the big screen. The Wyatt face mask with the distorted voice from Extreme Rules and RAW appears on the screen. The masked character tells Wyatt to come with him, your life is done, forget the future, forget the past, life is over. The character continues and says you have no idea who you are dealing with… oh, but you will. The character laughs and repeats the line – oh, but you will.
The Wyatt moth logo suddenly appears on the big screen again as SmackDown goes off the air.
