On the most recent WWE SmackDown, viewers got their first look at Uncle Howdy. The hideous, Night King-like figure will undoubtedly actively participate in the creation of the Wyatt 6.
Most think Uncle Howdy is Bray Wyatt’s inner devil or alter ego. At times, Wyatt can entirely take over by channeling an evil ego buried deep inside of him.
This was demonstrated on WWE SmackDown when the lights went off and a mysterious being called out Wyatt for masking his true personality by interrupting his speech.
“Who am I? Of course, I’m just a ghost of the man who cured the world. You are a fool. You cured the world. You sent him away. And now, the reason why you are just a shell of who you once were. I will teach you to revel in what you are. But you, sir, you are a liar. You claim not to wear a mask, but we both know that’s not true, don’t we? You will never be able to hide from me.”
Wyatt’s internal conflicts between the good and the bad appear to be highlighted by the firm. The personification of the latter is Uncle Howdy.
The 35-year-old presents two sides of himself, like before; one urges him to embrace his darker nature and become The Fiend, while the other wants him to be meek and sympathetic.
During the most recent WWE SmackDown promo, Wyatt provided further information regarding his predicament. He took the microphone before Uncle Howdy arrived and spoke about his demons and remembered being in a “dark place.”
“My emotions don’t work like most other people’s. I don’t always have control. Sometimes, they can send me to a very dark place. Other times, I don’t feel anything at all…A part of me really likes that I’m willing to do some truly awful things.”
Another hypothesis holds that Uncle Howdy is a different person. He is the source of Bray Wyatt’s superhuman abilities and scolds him for not expressing his violent side while urging him to revert to his demonic persona.

According to rumors, The Fiend is a member of the legendary Wyatt 6, and if the gang ever materializes, the former WWE Champion will naturally fit into that position.
The ultimate disclosure of the Wyatt 6 could need to wait until the egos of Uncle Howdy and Bray Wyatt merge, if at all. Due to his ongoing battle with his past demons, the former Universal Champion hasn’t competed inside the squared circle since his comeback.
Who could be Uncle Howdy on WWE SmackDown?
There are many strange rumors about who Uncle Howdy is on social media. Fans think the celebrity portraying the spooky gimmick is tied to Bray Wyatt, regardless of the two personalities’ ideas.
The most prominent theory is that Uncle Howdy might be Bo Dallas, Wyatt’s biological brother. It is said that Mr. NXT will make a comeback shortly and team up with his brother Bray on WWE SmackDown.
Another innovative hypothesis links the most recent mystery hunt to Barry Windham, Bray’s “uncle” and a former NWA World Champion. Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp observed that Barry’s mustache and facial features resemble Howdy’s.
Tyler Bateman, a rising star in independent promotions and NJPW, is also said to be associated with Wyatt. He participated in the 2018 WWE tryouts.
Uncle Howdy of Bray Wyatt Makes an Incredible in-person Debut on Wwe SmackDown
When Bray Wyatt’s Uncle Howdy first appeared on camera, the WWE Universe was already unsure what to make of him. However, weeks later, fans are still baffled about who this person is and whether or not Wyatt was hiding behind a mask. After being abducted, LA Knight believed that.
However, when Wyatt was called out on tonight’s SmackDown, fans saw that Wyatt was not wearing the mask. Instead, Uncle Howdy made his in-person SmackDown debut, which you can watch in the post below.
Wyatt accepted the call after LA Knight said he could wear any mask or costume he desired before emerging to a thumping. Knight refused to believe him when Wyatt insisted that he wasn’t the one who had carried out the earlier assaults, hitting him and trampling him in the corner.
WAIT?! IS THAT…?! 😨

When the music started, the entry ramp was illuminated in orange. Then Wyatt watched from inside the ring as a man wearing a spooky top hat and that distinctive mask appeared and gave both stars a tip of the hat. Wyatt found the entire scene to be hilarious.
Knight exited the arena appearing terrified, as Uncle Howdy regarded the ring and smiled. As he recovered from Knight’s strike, Wyatt also laughed a little. It is unclear what Uncle Howdy wants or why he has an issue with Knight.

Knight did trash Wyatt entirely, but based on the recordings, it appears that Howdy is also upset with Wyatt and has told him that his portrayal of a good guy is only a façade. Howdy did emerge tonight as Wyatt was being attacked, but it’s possible that he did so to claim responsibility rather than to offer any assistance to Wyatt.
