Bray Wyatt and LA Knight have been engrossed in a unique yet captivating feud on WWE SmackDown. LA Knight recently appeared on an episode of ‘WWE After The Bell.’ Knight disclosed what he expects from the Pitch Black Match.
He stated, “Pitch Black Match, it’s something new in the making. There was something to the point of, ‘I don’t know what the hell this is, what the hell this is going to be.’ Every indication I’ve been given is that this is going to be a kick ass street fight and be kind of in the dark. I don’t know what the lighting is going to be, how it’s going to work, what other kind of factors or elements are going to come into play. All I know is it’s going to be a fight at the Royal Rumble.” Also Read: Breaking: Vince McMahon Sued By WWE Shareholder

Is A Return Of The Fiend On The Cards?
The match itself is heavily anticipated by wrestling fans. Bray Wyatt returned to the company in October, 2022. It was a jaw-dropping return after months of teasing Wyatt’s return through various easter eggs on weekly television programming.
Wyatt was previously let go in 2021, under Vince McMahon’s tenure as Chairman of the WWE where talent releases became a common occurrence. Triple H was reported to be determined to bring back Wyatt to the WWE.
On the recent edition of SmackDown, we saw traits of the old Wyatt. During his promo, a QR code popped up on the television. Once scanned, the code directed the audience to an old video of Wyatt revealing himself as The Fiend. The Pitch Black Match provides the perfect environment, ambience and platform for the grand return of The Fiend to the WWE.
The Pitch Black Match will be Bray Wyatt’s first WWE match since his WrestleMania 37 match against Randy Orton. Also Read: Report: Vince McMahon Sells A Shattered WWE To Saudi Arabia
