Contrary to many reports which have been circulating that Bray Wyatt is set to debut on AEW Dynamite on 29th September, it would seem this may not now be the case.

This edition of Dynamite has been announced by AEW President Tony Khan as being in the memory of the late Brodie Lee. Lee was known as Luke Harper during his time with WWE, and was a member of The Wyatt Family along with the man who went on to be known as The Fiend.

It had previously been reported by Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that this would be the night the former WWE Universal Champion made his AEW debut. However, when answering a question on the Figure Four Wrestling forum he has suggested this is now not going to happen.

He’s not scheduled for tomorrow unless something changes which I doubt will happen.

Further to this, Meltzer commented that this could be down to the influx of new talent in the company recently and that they may be looking to wait a little while before adding more new faces.

There are people who believe, possibly he himself but I’m not sure of that, it would be better not to bring another person new in until a little way down the line.

There is certainly no shortage of new talent in AEW, with both Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson making their first appearances for the company at this year’s All Out pay-per-view. That was also the night CM Punk made his in-ring return after a seven year hiatus from professional wrestling, having made his first appearance in his hometown of Chicago on the 20th August edition of AEW Rampage.
