The Fiend attacks Jerry 'The King' Lawler on Monday Night Raw

The Fiend attacks Jerry Lawler

Yesterday, GiveMeSport reported from another source that Bray Wyatt's newest alter-ego - The Fiend - may be getting some alterations after his absence from WWE television after SummerSlam.

Many expected The Fiend to be present on Raw, but a report from Tom Colohue of SportsKeeda stated that WWE couldn't decide if The Fiend or Wyatt's Firefly Funhouse character should appear, so in the end neither did.

And within all that came the news that WWE may be potentially altering the character to appeal to the masses, and to make it less intimidating for the likes of children who had apparently been scared by the new Wyatt.

All of this though was refuted by the man himself on Twitter last night, and his actions on Raw confirmed that he will remain the same going forward.

In the weeks before his SummerSlam victory over Finn Balor, Wyatt disposed of Mick Foley and Kurt Angle, showing that The Fiend was no joke - and he was about to acquire a new target.

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry 'The King' Lawler was supposed to be interviewing the newly-returned Sasha Banks for a special episode of 'The King's Court' on Raw, but he also took the time out to speak about the 2019 King of the Ring tournament.

As Lawler was about to run through the SmackDown line-up for the tournament, the lights started to go off and he immediately ran for cover, knowing that The Fiend normally strikes in the ring.

Unfortunately though The Fiend had a different plan on his mind as he popped up right behind Lawler on the stage in creepy fashion.

Wyatt downed Lawler with the Mandible Claw and then disappeared back off into the darkness - whilst it's interesting that he's seemingly taking down superstars of the past, can he at least target someone who can work a match in the near future?

Maybe WWE are still working out Wyatt's next feud - and this character needs a ton of protection to make it a big deal - but the potential is there for The Fiend to be the company's next big superstar.
