Most Notable Return: Bray Wyatt

This week’s most notable return was Bray Wyatt. He missed last week’s Raw after suffering a few injuries in a car crash. Bray returned to Raw this week to continue and evolve him and his partner, Matt Hardy’s rivalry with Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, collectively known as The B Team. With their tag team title match coming up at Extreme Rules this Sunday, let’s hope Bray is now one hundred percent and fully recovered from his injuries so that he and Matt stand a chance to retain the titles.
