Uncle Howdy made his first WWE appearance on last night’s SmackDown episode. Bray Wyatt’s segment was the closing event of the blue brand this week. Wyatt cut a promo and told the fans that he is feeling the best he has ever felt. Further, Bray said that there will be no masks, mirrors or smoke this time around.
Soon after, a mysterious character appeared on the big screen as the arena went dark. An old man introduced himself as Uncle Howdy and subtly hinted that Bray Wyatt drove The Fiend away from WWE.

Fans are wondering who the man behind this mysterious character could be. Here are five possible men who could be Uncle Howdy in WWE.
1. Is Bo Dallas the Uncle Howdy in WWE?
Bray Wyatt’s brother Bo Dallas is rumored to return to WWE soon. He is likely to work in the same storyline as his brother Wyatt. There is a possibility that The Fiend could be Bo Dallas only, who has now transformed into Uncle Howdy.
2. Is Uncle Howdy Bray Wyatt’s father?

In case you didn’t know, Bray Wyatt is the son of legendary professional wrestler IRS Mike Rotunda. Mike has been very active on Twitter ever since his son returned to WWE. Hence, one should not rule out the possibility of IRS returning to WWE.
3. Vinnie Marseglia
According to rumors, former ROH star Vinnie Marseglia is one of the names who will join Bray Wyatt’s faction. If WWE wants to introduce him in a grand way, he could be the man behind Uncle Howdy.
Another former ROH talent who was pitched to join Wyatt’s group is Dutch. It will be interesting to see if one of the two ex-ROH stars are behind Uncle Howdy.
5. Bray Wyatt himself
A masked Bray Wyatt made his return at Extreme Rules. There is a chance that Uncle Howdy is one of the many gimmicks that Wyatt could play in his second stint with WWE. Some fans also feel that Erick Rowan could be the person behind all this.
It will be exciting to see how the plot plays out in the coming weeks on WWE SmackDown.
