Ever since Bray Wyatt jumped to the main roster of World Wrestling Entertainment in late 2013, one of the biggest things to follow him around has been the shadowy mythical presence of Sister Abigail. Bray has referred to her (or it) on a number of occasions, calling back to her teaching and influence in his promos as well as naming his finishing move after her.
We know very little about Sister Abigail up to this point. Putting together vague pieces from FCW, NXT and WWE promos leads us to believe that she (or it) took a keen interest in Bray from a young age, teaching him about the ills of the world and that it was up to him to take what he wanted when he wanted it. We don't know if Sister Abigail was good, bad, evil, pure or anything. We don't even know if she was real.
There is a school of thought that believes that the identity of Sister Abigail should absolutely never, ever be revealed. I myself would agree with this to a point, although this comes from fatigue when it comes to WWE and their ability to craft psychological horror story, or lack thereof. Maybe she sould remain mythical, unseen, imaginary.
But Bray continues to hint at her arrival and this week Eric Rowan tweeted the above image that seemed to suggest we could be about to see Sister Abigail enter his feud with Luke Harper. If she simply must be uncovered, who out there should be revealed as Sister Abigail?
