Report: Update On WWE's White Rabbit Teases
Many believe a former WWE talent will be coming back as the White Rabbit
Alongside the company's usual programming, several 'White Rabbit' teases have been featured in WWE with the Jefferson Airplane song playing during the commercial breaks on SmackDown and Raw and at house shows. A QR code was also utilised on Monday Night Raw that took fans down the rabbit hole to a video of a white rabbit answering 'Who killed the world?' while playing Hangman. The answer was 'You did' before the video ended with '9.23', which will be Friday's episode of SmackDowm from Salt Lake City.
Speculation has suggested the teases are for either Karrion Kross or Bray Wyatt but there has been no official confirmation of who the White Rabbit is.
In an update, Fightful Select reported that no talent or on-screen staff have been told who the White Rabbit teases are for but almost all of them believe they are related to Bray Wyatt. Those involved with production have also not been told about the White Rabbit and the situation is "being played very close to the vest within the company."
WrestleVotes had a similar report, tweeting: "Asked a source about the White Rabbit deal, source said while he suspects its Bray Wyatt, he said it's being 'withheld' from everyone. WWE has been able to draw significant interest from this, w/o it being a 'TV storyline' & they'd like to keep it as quiet as possible."
Reports in recent weeks have noted that Wyatt and WWE have held talks about a return and it is not considered a dead issue. Fightful confirmed that there has been contact between WWE and the two-time Universal Champion and numerous people within the company think it is just a matter of time before he comes back.
Talent within WWE also believe the company has to deliver on the tease and a top star said paying off the tease is "integral in setting the tone for shows moving forward."
