The big reveal finally came on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw as a Bo Dallas / Uncle Howdy led faction officially debuted.

However, they did not appear until after the conclusion of the main event, a qualifying match for the Money in the Bank ladder match.
To close tonight’s WWE Raw, the main event was a triple threat match between Rey Mysterio, Finn Balor and Jey Uso.
After copious interferences by Judgment Day (then Braun Strowman running them off), finally in the end Jey Uso would pick up the victory and become the first man to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match.
After Balor his a Coup de Gras on Mysterio and go for a cover, Uso would fly in with an Uso Splash and then capture pinfall victory over Balor.

However while Jey Uso was still celebrating with the crowd, the lights went off in the arena, and signature sounds of Bray Wyatt played out.
A door appeared on the stage, and from it crawled Nikki Cross, wearing a mask and a white dress as she approached a lit lantern on the ground.
She signaled behind her and the camera followed to reveal complete carnage backstage as there were several characters present in the back.

Leading up to finally a bloodied Chad Gable, it was then revealed that there was the leader left to be seen.
The final member would be shown as a new iteration of Uncle Howdy – portrayed by Bo Dallas – appeared as if almost levitating as he walked back through the carnage backstage to the lead the group forward.
As they entered the arena, Uncle Howdy lifted the lantern to reveal the four new unique masks as he shouted, “We’re here!” and blew out the lantern.

You can see in the image below, the characters are reminiscent of those from the Firefly Funhouse although differently imagined now brought to life.
It appears that clockwise from Uncle Howdy in the center holding a lantern is a Mercy the Buzzard inspired character played by Dexter Lumis, an Abby the Witch character played by Nikki Cross, a Huskus the Pig style character played by Joe Gacy, and finally the return of Erick Rowan as a violent reimagination of Rambling Rabbit.
