The FOX deal is a lucrative one for the WWE that kicked off from last week onwards. Smackdown Live aired from this new platform leaving its home territory of the USA Network on Tuesday Nights. From now on, it will take place on Friday Nights in the prime time. The first episode garnered major attention on October 4th which appeared to be the biggest episode of 2019. FOX now wants some specific names on their show with one of them being The Fiend Bray Wyatt.
There’s no doubt that this character is a special one which is said to be the savior of WWE programming in due course. If The Undertaker ever has a successor then The Fiend Bray Wyatt must be the one who could carry the tradition. Fans and critics are down with the fact that how much effort WWE has put to establish the character. FOX officials are aware of the fact and sounded their pledge to have The Fiend Bray Wyatt on Friday nights, moving forward.
We have heard a lot of rumors about FOX representatives wanting certain WWE Superstars on SmackDown before the big switch happens, next week. The Fiend Bray Wyatt is one of those names, as per the reports of WrestleVotes. Apart from that, Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar have also been their wanted lists. They did so to showcase the blue brand as more of a sports-oriented show.
Something nobody can deny: a person who works for FOX has directly told me, face to face, they would like Bray Wyatt on SmackDown. However, it looks like he’s going to remain on RAW, with Paul Heyman being a gigantic fan of his. Not confirmed, but we’ll see.

Check out below what the source had to say about FOX’s demand,
“Something nobody can deny: a person who works for FOX has directly told me, face to face, they would like Bray Wyatt on SmackDown. However, it looks like he’s going to remain on RAW, with Paul Heyman being a gigantic fan of his. Not confirmed, but we’ll see.”
As you can see, the move is not likely to happen since the head creative of WWE Raw, Paul Heyman is extremely fond of the new resident demon found in WWE. He has already taken Wyatt into the main event picture owing to the same reason.
The Fiend Bray Wyatt is still the number one contender for the Universal Championship over on Monday Night Raw, technically. He challenged Seth Rollins for the title at Hell in a Cell pay-per-view that ended in a Referee Stoppage. However, WWE had him scheduled in a special Firefly Funhouse episode on Smackdown debut on FOX.
