Last year Bray Wyatt made his long awaited WWE return at the Extreme Rules premium live event, and it wasn’t long before the world was introduced to the mysterious Uncle Howdy character.
Uncle Howdy made a number of appearances on WWE programming in the months that followed, but his true identity has yet to be revealed to the WWE Universe. Despite the fact that WWE hasn’t confirmed who’s under the Uncle Howdy mask it’s been reported that Bo Dallas is the one who is filling the role.
Now it seems that even more evidence confirming Uncle Howdy is Bo Dallas has come to light. A fan on Twitter pointed out how the WWE 2K23 video game refers to Uncle Howdy as a one time NXT Champion who held the title for 280 days, which is interesting because Bo Dallas held the belt for 280 days during his one run with the title.
This is more proof Bo is Uncle Howdy. WWE 2K23 has Uncle Howdy as a 1 time NXT Champion which Bo was. It also says Howdy held the champion for 280 days and Bo did to.This put all the rumors to an end and #2K messed up big time. #WWE #WWE2K23 @WhatsTheStatus @JoeMashups @WWEgames pic.twitter.com/83iBVBpdXK

Unfortunately fans haven’t seen Uncle Howdy in some time as he was pulled from TV after Bray Wyatt was sidelined due to an illness. Bray Wyatt has been off TV for months now, and there doesn’t seem to be a timeline for his return. It’s not clear at this point in time if Uncle Howdy’s identity will ever be revealed on screen, but obviously this storyline has not been followed up on due to Bray’s absence.
