Dark matches are usually meant to send the fans home happy, especially if the live TV broadcast falls flat.
After Seth Rollins burned down Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House at the end of Monday Night Raw, they wrestled each other in a dark match. The match took place under that same red light they used during the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
In the end, Wyatt was disqualified for doing the mandible claw on the referee’s mouth.
It’s unclear if Vince McMahon has plans to turn Rollins heel but it looks like the fans are doing it for him. Rollins got loud boos at the end of Raw and during the dark match and Wyatt got great babyface reactions. It’s clear that Wyatt will turn into the biggest babyface in the company at some point if he’s not already.
