Bo Dallas was backstage at last night's episode of Raw, reports Fightful Select and PWInsider.

Fightful's report noted recent speculation that Dallas is currently performing the Uncle Howdy gimmick on SmackDown. As stated, however, whoever has been working that gimmick hasn't been revealing their identity backstage, going as far as not getting in or out of their costume in front of other people.

PWInsider notes, however, that Dallas' presence at Raw "100% confirms" him as Uncle Howdy.


Howdy has been at the centre of Bray Wyatt's WWE return storyline. Where once it appeared the former 'Fiend' was haunted by this new character, Howdy made it to the physical realm a few weeks ago, confronting Wyatt and rival LA Knight from the ramp. On a later show, Howdy hit the ring, attacking Wyatt with a Sister Abigail.

Uncle Howdy was present on last night's Raw too, appearing on the ramp while Alexa Bliss was explaining her beatdown of Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair on last week's show.


Dallas, Wyatt's real-life brother, has been speculated for the Uncle Howdy role since the character's first appearance. The 32-year-old has been out of WWE since his April 2021 release.
