Bray Wyatt returned to WWE at the Extreme Rules premium live event last year, but he has yet to wrestle a match on TV. However, that’s all going to change next week when Wyatt faces LA Knight in the first ever Pitch Black match.
Fightful Select is reporting that there will be neon elements to the Pitch Black match at the Royal Rumble, and they’ve been doing some run throughs for the match. WWE is also set to hold a press conference after the Royal Rumble which will be sponsored by Mountain Dew Pitch Black.
LA Knight recently addressed the Pitch Black match during an appearance on the After The Bell podcast and he indicated that it will be a street fight that takes place in the dark.
“Pitch Black Match, it’s something new in the making. There was something to the point of, ‘I don’t know what the hell this is, what the hell this is going to be.’ Every indication I’ve been given is that this is going to be a kick ass street fight and be kind of in the dark. I don’t know what the lighting is going to be, how it’s going to work, what other kind of factors or elements are going to come into play. All I know is it’s going to be a fight at the Royal Rumble.”
The Royal Rumble will air live on Saturday, January 28 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
