WWE Had Creative Plans For Mike Bennett And Eric Young To Work With Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt missed WWE WrestleMania 39 in April due to an illness, and he hasn’t been given the all-clear to return to the ring yet. Before he disappeared from television, he was paired with Bo Dallas as Uncle Howdy and Alexa Bliss.

When Wyatt first returned to WWE last year, he had puppets in the crowd as a nod to The Firefly Fun House segments, and there was talk of a new group being formed.

According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, Paul Heyman pitched having Mike Bennett and Eric Young work with Wyatt before WWE released them in 2020. Bennett was approached, but not Young. This was pitched several times, including an idea for Bennett to play Sister Abigail. Later that year, Wyatt was released.

According to a recent report, the plans were canceled, but Fightful notes that the pitches did not go far. According to Fightful, more recent pitches for a new faction with Wyatt have been made.

As previously reported, Young requested and was granted his WWE release this spring, resulting in his return to Impact Wrestling on Saturday.

Disputed reports Young was to be a part of a new-style Wyatt Family with both Bray Wyatt and Dallas. Creative plans were made in January and were supposed to begin after WrestleMania 39.

When Wyatt was injured, things were put on hold, and Dallas vanished from television. There were also pitches for Bliss to join the faction before she became pregnant.
