Since the frightening figure interrupted Bray Wyatt’s promo on SmackDown, Uncle Howdy has been the subject of much discussion around the WWE Universe.
Furthermore, deeper investigation by wrestling fanatics suggests that the individual hiding behind the scary mask might be a well-known figure.
On this week’s episode of SmackDown, Bray Wyatt featured as the show’s central focus. He was midway into a passionate speech when he was interrupted by a masked figure on the large screen.
There was a blackout as Uncle Howdy revealed himself to the WWE Universe and referred to The Eater of Worlds as a “liar” who was masking his true identity.
Many people pointed out that Uncle Howdy was sporting the same earring as Bo Dallas, a recently released WWE star, although the identity of the menacing figure is still unclear.
The identical tooth gap was yet another similarity that was noted. Bo Dallas was recently reported to come back to the company so this Uncle Howdy connection does make sense.
Except the voice was clearly either Bray's own voice or Bo Dallas, who sounds very similar. The voice occasionally going into a higher pitch makes me think it's Bo, as well as the matching tooth gap. Same earring as well, though that could be an intentional Easter egg by WWE. pic.twitter.com/UXztmdOKjp

Earlier, Bo Dallas’s return to WWE was also reported by wrestling reporter Bryan Alvarez. It was anticipated that he will take part in Wyatt’s upcoming story.
Before being let off last year, Bo worked for the Stamford-based company for over 13 years. The 32-year-old star also happens to be Bray Wyatt’s biological brother.
Bo Dallas is a highly skilled and innovative wrestler who never really had the opportunity to showcase his abilities on the main roster.
Whilst working for Wwe, Dallas and Curtis Axel formed the “The B-Team”, which held the Raw Tag Team Championship for a while.
Dallas achieved success in his solo run as well, taking home the WWE 24/7 Championship and holding the NXT Championship for a while.
At Crown Jewel in 2019, he would have his final match for the organisation, where he and Axel would engage in a World Cup Tag Team Turmoil Match.
