During last night’s episode of Raw, Bray Wyatt was back with another “Firefly Funhouse” segment. This time around, Wyatt painted an image of a cabin burning down. This is very reminiscent of the segment wherein Randy Orton burned down the Wyatt Family compound years ago. Wyatt has since taken to Twitter to send a message to his former tag team partner. Bray Wyatt noted that Orton did indeed burn down the compound and then beat him for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 33. However, Wyatt says that he has forgiven Orton for what he did to him in 2017. Ever since his return during Raw last week, Wyatt has claimed that he is a changed man and is looking for forgiveness rather than pain.
A couple years ago @RandyOrton did some pretty bad stuff to me. He destroyed my temple, uncrowned me as The Champion of The World, caused my brother to abandon me and betrayed my trust.
Worst of all… he didn’t say he was sorry. ??
BUT, I forgive you Randy Bo Banders!! pic.twitter.com/q5TF5b1BOR

Longtime WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose decided to leave the company this month following years of service. His departure disappointed several fans and wrestlers alike, including his Shield partners Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Rollins appeared for an interview with Alex McCarthy of TalkSports to discuss his thoughts on his friend leaving WWE. The Universal Champion wished Ambrose well in whatever his next endeavor is before praising his commitment to every task he undertakes. Rollins said that he did not know what Ambrose will do next now that he is done with WWE. However, Rollins did say that Ambrose is likely just delighted to be off the road and able to make his own choices in life going forward.
“It will be cool to see where he ends up or where he takes his talents whether that be to another wrestling promotion or somewhere else in the entertainment field, or, you know, maybe he just wants to sit at home playing with his dogs, be with his wife, and have a family – who knows? I’m excited as a friend just to see what he’s going to get himself into because he’s one of the most talented dudes I’ve ever come across and he’s got a lot to offer, so I can’t even begin to speculate.” Rollins said.
WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering has not made any appearances for WWE ever since his partnership with AOP came to an end last year. However, the legendary pro wrestling manager made his return to NXT during a live event in St. Paul last night. Ellering was in attendance to see his daughter, NXT Superstar Rachael Evers in action. Evers was signed to an NXT contract earlier this year following numerous appearances in NXT and the Mae Young Classic. WWE posted a photo of Ellering and his daughter embracing at ringside before she took part in her match for the evening. Ellering was last said to still be under contract with WWE and is waiting for another NXT Superstar to manage.
