At WrestleMania 36, Bray Wyatt defeated John Cena in one of the most unique matches in wrestling history when the pair competed in a Firefly Fun House match.
Also at the show, Braun Strowman defeated Goldberg to become the Universal Champion. This came after Strowman replaced Roman Reigns who pulled out of the show.
Following their big wins, Strowman and Wyatt went one-on-one for the Universal Championship at the first pay-per-view after WrestleMania, Money in the Bank.
It was the Firefly Fun House version of Bray Wyatt that competed for the title, not The Fiend character, and Strowman picked up the big win over his former stablemate.
Many people assumed that Wyatt and Strowman would continue their feud, with Braun eventually dropping the title to The Fiend.
However, Strowman defended against John Morrison and The Miz at Backlash, and Wyatt was seemingly taken off of TV.
Wyatt returned on the post-Backlash episode of SmackDown to continue his feud with Strowman, so many have been questioning why WWE didn’t just continue their storyline after Backlash.
Well, we now know the reason why Wyatt wasn’t on TV between Money in the Bank and Backlash, and it’s because he and JoJo Offerman had their second child together.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer notes that Wyatt took some time away from WWE over the last month or so to spend time with his family as JoJo had given birth.
Strowman and Wyatt are likely going to have a cinematic match at Extreme Rules later on this month, which will reportedly just delay the inevitable Fiend vs. Strowman match for the Universal Championship.
