Stephanie McMahon discusses how Bray Wyatt’s return gave a boost to the viewership
Bray Wyatt’s return to the company at the Extreme Rules PLE has to be one of the biggest returns for the WWE this year. The White Rabbit thing, which was the buildup to Wyatt’s return, was the best thing that WWE has created this year. Fans were engrossed and would watch every episode for clues about the White Rabbit. This certainly boosted the ratings and viewership of the shows.
During a recent appearance at the Wells Fargo 2022 TMT Summit, Stephanie McMahon said they employed a multimedia strategy and recruited a horror writer, who assisted them in crafting the plot and kept fans interested. She claimed that the audience of today is new, changing, and evolving, with some preferring a relaxed experience but many wanting to participate fully and have fun.
“We were bringing back one of our biggest stars named Bray Wyatt. We used a multimedia approach and hired a horror writer to come in and really help us craft this narrative, so our fans were engaged….”
Even after Wyatt’s return to the company, it hasn’t been clear as to what his character is as of now. Bray Wyatt hasn’t fought in a single match since his return but his character is intriguing, and fans can’t wait to see more of him.
