WWE’s Biggest Party of the Summer is just two months away! And when we say ‘biggest,’ we literally mean it. After all, the PPV will take place from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

WWE announced the Allegiant Stadium in Vegas as the official venue for SummerSlam 2021 at the 2021 Belmont Stakes’ pre-race. They confirmed the news with official social media posts.

And one such post caught the eye of former Universal Champion, Bray Wyatt, who tweeted a confusing reply.

Bray Wyatt tweeted a GIF of his ‘Firefly Funhouse’ version in which we can see him laughing and getting excited for something. While it does not solidify anything, it’s a good enough easter egg for us to know he will return. After all, the last we saw Bray Wyatt was on the Raw after WrestleMania.


Now, given the history of Bray Wyatt and SummerSlam, there couldn’t be a better PPV to return, especially when the stadium will be jam-packed with over 70,000 members of the WWE Universe.

Roman Reigns returned to SummerSlam last year and laid out The Fiend and Braun Strowman following their match. He then went on to decimate both men, and then captured the title at the next PPV – PayBack.

We all know The Fiend doesn’t forgive, and he does not forget. It would make perfect sense for Bray Wyatt to return as The Fiend following Roman’s victory against whoever he faces at the ‘Biggest Party of the Summer.’

There are reports of John Cena stepping up to Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. Well, if he does, it would be a huge draw, and with Roman winning that one, it would solidify him as the true ‘Tribal Chief’ in front of close to a 100,000 fans.

The Fiend’s return would give WWE programming a much-needed boost. But the question is – will they go in The Fiend-Roman Reigns route?

The story is there, all they have to do is commit to it. If they do, it could definitely turn out to be another strong rivalry between Wyatt and Reigns. However this time, the odds and gimmicks are different.

Will ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt emerge from the dark realm to stand up to the ‘Head of the Table?’ Let us know in the comments below!
