In an interview with the PWTorch Livecast, former WWE creative team member Kevin Eck discussed the origins of the Sister Abigail character and whether the character will ever make it to television.
“From what I know about how Bray Wyatt envisioned that character, I don’t think that character is ever going to be seen, because the way Bray explained it, and I don’t think it’s ever come out on TV, he speaks in riddles, so maybe if you read in-between the lines, but Bray Wyatt was apparently a young man and Sister Abigail was an old, black woman, in I believe, the swamps of Louisiana who had some supernatural powers, and you know, the history of voodoo and such in New Orleans. I believe she took him under her wing and kind of taught him the secrets of what she knows of the dark arts and things like that.
So that’s who Sister Abigail was, or is in Bray’s mind….she’s an almost witch-like character who made him what he is and told him he’s special and he’s kind of the chosen one. So if WWE ever goes with Bray’s vision, I don’t think you’re ever going to see a physical Sister Abigail.”
