WWE has reportedly already received pressure from its stockholders and sponsors to scrap Bray Wyatt's Firefly Fun House.
Before this week, Bray Wyatt had been missing from WWE television for more than six months. Then, on Raw, he returned in an extremely unexpected way. As the host of what seems to an extremely twisted children's show. From the little we have learned from the segment, it seems as if Wyatt is going to portray someone with an extremely split personality.
As strange an idea as it is, it seems to have been received well by the majority of fans. Not only are most of them just happy to see Wyatt back, but it actually looks as if some thought has been put into his return. Kevin Owens returned after a similar amount of time away recently and it was evident that WWE didn't have a plan for him and just needed someone of his talent back on the roster.
Where this Firefly Fun House idea is going is anyone's guess. However, what is currently worrying us is the reaction to the segment from WWE stockholders and sponsors. According to Brad Shepard of Oh. You Didn't Know, some of the company's financial backers are not entirely okay with a Superstar portraying what seems to be the leader of a cult for children.
"I was told that WWE considered dropping the gimmick altogether after feedback on Tuesday morning from bigwig shareholders and sponsors," Shepard reported. However, the good news is that if that is indeed the case, WWE doesn't seem to be in agreement. Those of you who watched SmackDown Live will know that the exact same segment aired again in its entirety on Tuesday night.
A while back it was rumored that WWE's creative team didn't know what to do with Wyatt. Now that they have come up with something that most people appear to be on board with, it would be a real shame if it was scrapped just a week in. Plus, if WWE does feel the need to stop it in order to please its sponsors, who knows what that would mean for Wyatt? Having to disappear again could well be the last straw.
