Alexa Bliss and Bray Wyatt are working together on WWE SmackDown, judging by three teases during Friday night’s show.
Although Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt are done with their rivalry on WWE SmackDown after Roman Reigns won back his Universal Title at Payback last week, Alexa Bliss and the Fiend will be writing their next story soon enough.
Bliss isn’t going to be “Sister Abigail”, but she will be positioned as someone working with Wyatt as early as next week.
Because on the Sept. 4 episode of SmackDown, Wyatt told fans on the Firely Funhouse that he will be introducing a new character on the show next week. It’s easy to connect the dots and see that this new character will be Bliss.
Last week, Nikki Cross noticed Bliss had braided her hair, fearing that this was due to the influence of the Fiend. On this week’s episode of the Blue Brand, Bliss’ braids were more prominent, signaling that she is indeed emulating the two-time Universal Champion.

But there was one more tease that was even less subtle. In the background of this week’s backstage interaction between Cross and Bliss, we saw one of the puppets from the Firefly Funhouse, Ramblin’ Rabbit, in the background, lurking as he watched Bliss.
It’s yet another sign that Alexa Bliss and the Fiend are working together and will continue working together on SmackDown for quite some time. If Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt had a double-turn weeks ago, then that could make the storyline between Bliss and Wyatt even more interesting.
Next week, fans can expect Bliss to show up on the Firefly Funhouse, and we can get a better sense for what the Fiend’s motivations are after only holding the Universal Title for one week. We’re surely getting at least one singles bout between Roman Reigns and the Fiend before WrestleMania 37 next year, but it’s questionable when that first match between them will be.
Bliss can help boost the Fiend greatly, and by working with the Fiend, Bliss can do something different that will help her become an even bigger star. Since joining SmackDown in 2016, Bliss has been a crucial part of the WWE main roster, and that definitely isn’t changing any time soon.
