Bray Wyatt opened the August 7 episode of SmackDown by letting the public know that The Fiend was going to make his presence felt and sure enough, later in the evening, “The Fiend” was in the center of the ring with Alexa Bliss.
Just when it looked as though Alexa was going to get another Mandible Claw, she seemed to defend herself by showing care for the demented Wyatt.
Just then, Braun Strowman appeared on the Titantron and said that he does not care about Alexa and that the time in the swamp turned him into “the most-evil son-of-a-bitch the Earth has ever seen.” Braun Strowman would then challenge Bray Wyatt's most twisted alter ego to face his fears and face him at SummerSlam.
Should the pair fight at SummerSlam, this would be their third pay-per-view match this year. At WWE Money in the Bank, Braun Strowman defeated Bray Wyatt in his Firefly Fun House gimmick. Then, at Extreme Rules, Bray Wyatt returned to his debut gimmick to face Braun in a Swamp Fight. This match, should it be made official, appears to be built around “The Fiend.”
