He is mostly known for his The Eater of the Worlds and The Fiend gimmick. Apart from these, he is also known for his one twisted character, Uncle Howdy.

Fans might witness Uncle Howdy coming out of the grave. Not in a literal sense, but rumors are doing the rounds that fans might get to see The Night King- like creature in the ring. According to sources, Triple H wants a 33-year-old star to carry on Bray Wyatt’s legacy. The star will be given everything that might help the character to move forward.

The star in question is Taylor Rotunda, aka Bo Dallas. Dallas might reprise one of his brother’s fabled gimmicks. However, according to the sources, there is no word on when fans could get to see him. But there are possibilities that he might grace our screens after the Survivor Series, somewhere around December or January. Uncle Howdy represented the dark side of Bray Wyatt. It was the personification of his inner demons. At times, the gimmick would take control of him, and fans witnessed the eerie character in full force.
