Bray Wyatt hosted the Firefly Fun House and talked about Braun Strowman’s romance with Alexa Bliss. He would later say it is better to be built in rage and fueled by anger as love only leads to pain and suffering.

As Wyatt was speaking, The Monster Among Men attacked and knocked out Wyatt. The Brawl would continue backstage as Strowman’s assault would send Wyatt in an ambulance.

Even though Bray Wyatt was the one to go into the Ambulance, the person to come out of it would be The Fiend. Surprisingly, during this segment, the camera went on the WWE officials and one official was very familiar to the WWE Universe.
