The new WWE Extreme Rules graphics may have a hidden message from Bray Wyatt.
The highly-anticipated WWE Extreme Rules premium live event is less than two weeks away, and the buzz around it is getting “extreme” as the card keeps getting bigger. The “Raw” Women’s Championship match between Bayley and Bianca Belair will be a ladder match, and Edge will face Finn Balor from The Judgment Day in an “I Quit” match when he returns.
WWE has released new graphics that show the WWE Superstars and what kinds of matches they will be in. This is to get more people excited about the show.
But in the new creative era of WWE, led by Chief Content Officer Triple H, hints and easter eggs are more common than ever. For example, the chaos in the background that led to Dexter Lumis’s return to WWE or the White Rabbit QR codes that keep showing up in WWE programming is just two examples.
Another small detail on those Extreme Rules graphics could show how and when Bray Wyatt, also known as “The Fiend,” will return to WWE.
Talent That Tony Khan Should Sign To AEW’s Roster
Random objects, like a steel chair, barbed wire, and a kendo stick, are strewn about in the background of all five of the promotional match graphics that have been released so far. These objects bring up the idea of extreme rules. But when you look more closely, it looks like the graphics for the men’s and women’s matches are different in one important way.
In the top left corner of the men’s graphics, unlike in the women’s, there is a lantern hanging from the ceiling with a group of fireflies flying around it.
Fans of Wyatt will remember that he always brought a lantern with him when he went into the ring.
All involving the lantern include Edge vs. Balor in an “I Quit” match, Riddle vs. Seth Freakin’ Rollins in the Fight Pit, and Drew McIntyre vs. Killer Kross in a strap match.
No one knows if these pictures mean that Wyatt might be in the men’s matches instead of the women’s matches or if they don’t mean anything at all.

Since 2019, All Elite Wrestling has had a roster of established veterans, exciting up-and-comers, and top-tier performers from all over the world and from different backgrounds and walks of life. Some people may criticize AEW for hiring too many former WWE stars, but it’s hard to argue with their strategy when a lot of their biggest stars get hurt at once and they need other people to step up.
Tony Khan is always on the lookout for talented people to join his company. Plus, since he bought Ring of Honor in March 2022, he needs to find wrestlers for a whole new promotion. But there are so many independent artists out there that he can’t possibly have time to keep up with all the best acts right now. To help him out, we at Wrestling Inc. have made a list of wrestlers that Khan should consider for AEW, even if it’s just to make us laugh.
To be clear, we’re only interested in people who should be all-elite. Khan should look at a lot of names, but most of them would probably fit better in the ROH locker room.
We’ve also decided to limit the pool to only those wrestlers who aren’t signed with IMPACT, MLW, NWA, NJPW, or any other company that has a big deal with American TV or streaming. But since the Forbidden Door is always open, you never know where or when someone might show up.
