Something DELIGHTFUL happened during the WrestleMania 34 kick-off show: Bray Wyatt returned – AND helped Matt Hardy win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal!

Bray Wyatt hasn’t been seen since Hardy threw him into the Lake of Reincarnation during the Ultimate Deletion nearly a month ago, so his return was quite the surprise. It was even more surprising that he helped Hardy win – but the WWE Universe is totally on board with the turn.

A Bray Wyatt/Matt Hardy alignment is something I'm far more happy about than I ever thought I'd be. #WrestleMania

Bray Wyatt with Matt Hardy is a GREAT sight. I hope they pair them for the Tag Team Titles. That could easily resurrect Bray Wyatt’s career #WrestleMania

This was a fantastic twist on WWE’s part. Fans weren’t expecting a lot from the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, as it’s proven to be nothing much more than a time-filler that gives little-used Superstars something to do on the grandest stage of them all. But Wyatt is beloved by fans, and he’s been stifled by terrible booking for a long time. An alliance with Hardy could go a long way to revive his career, and the colorful characters of Woken Matt Hardy and the Eater of Worlds are a natural fit.
The question is: what does this mean for Jeff?
