It seems as though WWE Universal Champion will be appearing in-ring on Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown ahead of The Fiend’s defence at Survivor Series on Sunday.
His challenger, Daniel Bryan, is goading him to the ring according to WWE.com:
Daniel Bryan is letting him in – what will Bray Wyatt do with the opportunity?
Before the two competitors meet for the Universal Title at WWE’s Fall Classic, Bryan summons Wyatt to the ring for a pre-Survivor Series confrontation on Friday Night SmackDown. The rivalry has escalated in recent weeks with the Universal Champion’s backstage attack and “Miz TV” disruption, which led to Bryan laying down the title challenge.
Will Bryan send a message before the Survivor Series showdown? Can Wyatt’s mind games get his adversary back into a “Yes!” state of mind? Catch the confrontation on SmackDown at 8/7 C on FOX.
Bryan will be The Fiend’s first TV challenger since he won the title from Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on October 31.
Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan have had three one-on-one TV matches previously, obviously in previous iterations of their characters. Wyatt currently leads the way at 2-1.
