The tell-all documentary based on Bray Wyatt‘s life premiered on April 1. Narrated by The Undertaker, Bray Wyatt: Becoming Immortal saw numerous WWE personalities trying to put into words what a gem of a soul Windham Rotunda was. But as the doc came to a close, Wyatt’s lantern started flickering and eventually lit up. Standing behind it was the silhouette of a man, resembling that of Uncle Howdy.

Fightful Select has now confirmed that the sort of ending fans saw was a “deliberate teaser” for Wyatt’s brother, Bo Dallas‘ return. A WWE higher-up further claimed that the company didn’t want to rush his comeback after Wyatt passed away last year. The report added that Dallas has been under a WWE contract since 2022. No follow-up was given as to what exactly would be the creative plans for the former NXT Champion when he does show up.

The 33-year-old has been in the mix over the past two years, playing Uncle Howdy on television. However, his last appearance came on an edition of SmackDown in February 2023. He stood alongside Bray Wyatt as they wiped off The Hit Row. How ironic that the Rotunda brothers were in unison in what turned out to be Windham’s last-ever in-ring appearance inside a WWE ring.

Back in January this year, reports surfaced regarding the former B-Team member working with WWE over something that wasn’t divulged back then. As it turned out, the real-life Taylor Rotunda was filming content for his late brother’s recently released documentary. It will be interesting to see whether he picks up from where he left off or if there’s something else in the pipeline for his reported comeback.

Did Bray Wyatt’s documentary inadvertently cost him a Hall of Fame induction?

It should’ve been Bray Wyatt’s turn to be posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2024, many fans thought. However, it just wasn’t meant to be.

Even though his name was initially considered for the honor, The Eater of Worlds isn’t getting that badge, at least not this year. But why so? Dave Meltzer of WON gave a plausible reason as to why the stars didn’t align.

The wrestling journalist affirmed that his life-based documentary played a factor. WWE thought about putting a little more weight on its release and promoting the never-seen-before side of the man, known as The New Face of Fear. Sooner or later, the deceased wrestler will be a WWE HOF’er.
