Bray Wyatt has broken his silence following his attack on Alexa Bliss.
As seen on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center on FOX, the main event saw Bayley successfully retain the SmackDown Women’s Title over Nikki Cross.
Post-match, Bliss went to console Cross but Cross shoved her and then walked away. This led to Bray Wyatt, who was portraying his Fiend character, appearing to apply the Mandible Claw on Bliss as the show went off the air.
The belief is that this angle was done as a way to play off Bliss’ appearance in the Wyatt Swamp Fight at the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view event that saw Wyatt take on WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman. In the contest, it was teased that Strowman was infatuated with Bliss.
Wyatt made his first comments since the angle with this post on his Twitter account:
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
Who controls the past controls the future.
Who controls the present controls the past.

As noted, Wyatt vs. Strowman is planned for SummerSlam as one of the top matches.
