The Fiend‘s entrance and match from WWE Summerslam is one of the hottest topics for discussion in the wrestling industry currently. The whole segment from start to finish received rave reviews from the critics and led to a “That Was Awesome” chant from those in attendance during the pay-per-view.
One of the highlights from the entrance was Wyatt carrying a new lantern, which resembled Wyatt’s decapitated head with the mouth serving as the light bulb. It was quite surprising to see WWE go this far to present Fiend as the monster, and was most certainly not suitable for audiences of all ages.
WWE had uploaded the full entrance on YouTube, which has received over two million views in less than 48 hours. However, WWE has edited out the head lantern part from the video, which was apparently too dicey for a YouTube video.
Wyatt’s new Tiantron video was also uploaded to YouTube, only to be quickly deleted within an hour. WWE has not reuploaded any new video since then. Wyatt’s new Titantron was the “Let Me In” phrase, which has become synonymous with the Fiend character.
The Fiend defeated Finn Balor in a quick match on SummerSlam, but didn’t make an appearance on RAW this week. Balor is listed as a SmackDown Superstar while Bray Wyatt is a RAW superstar, and with WWE trying to phase out the Wild Card Rule, Wyatt could attack a RAW superstar next.
There were rumors of Wyatt continuing his feud with Balor on SmackDown Live this week, with Balor bringing out his Demon persona for a rematch with the Fiend. It remains to be seen whether these rumors hold any weight or not.
WWE could potentially do away with the decapitated head lantern altogether in the future, and return to the normal lantern Wyatt used to bring with him in his previous avatar.
