UPDATE: Bray Wyatt has seemingly been spotted in LA and commented on his WrestleMania status – click here for the full story.
An update has emerged on Bray Wyatt, Bobby Lashley and Uncle Howdy ahead of WrestleMania 39 night two, which starts in a few hours.
In case you hadn’t heard, Wyatt vs Lashley was planned for WrestleMania as of Elimination Chamber on February 18.
However, Wyatt has been out with an illness, and neither Wyatt nor Lashley, nor Uncle Howdy (Bo Dallas) for that matter, were on TV for several weeks, and all promotion of the match was dropped.
Lashley returned to TV two nights ago on March 31 to win the Andre The Giant Memorial battle royal on SmackDown, and has since reiterated on social media his desire to still be added to the Mania card.
In the latest update, PWInsider Elite reports (via Wrestling Inc), that Wyatt has not been seen in Los Angeles for the show.
However, Uncle Howdy is there. And of course Lashley is too.
The report notes there is “no word” on if there is a Lashley segment planned for tonight.
However, Fightful reported yesterday that Lashley’s Andre The Giant trophy for winning the battle royal was actually transferred from to SoFi Stadium and was set to be used in an entrance, so that’s pretty much as close to confirmation as you can get that there was a Lashley appearance planned.
A whole host of names – most of them unlikely to actually happen – have responded to Lashley’s want for a match by saying they’d love to accept, including Matt Cardona, Chris Masters, and KSI, who tried to help Logan Paul against Seth Rollins last night, but got splashed through a table by Paul instead.
We’ll keep you updated with any further news.
