Bray Wyatt might really be bringing a new ‘face’ to WWE, but that video previewing ‘her’ outfit is a fake.
Bray Wyatt teased a new face that would be revealed during the next episode of his Firefly Fun House on Friday Night SmackDown. No other details were revealed, but shortly after the promo aired a Twitter account posted a video with an apparent preview of an outfit for that person, including ‘Let Her In’ as the caption.
The video is credited to a woman named Erica Gimbel who claimed this was a preview of the ‘face’ Wyatt was teasing. The account profile says Gimbel is a “Wardrobe Stylist & Designer” and boasts WWE as a client, but the account has since been proven to be a fake.
Bell To Belles co-owner and Fightful contributor Kristen Ashly has posted a detailed thread confirming the person is using fake information to mislead people despite having a verified account.
According to a new thread from Ashly, there are a number of inaccuracies with photos and other information posted by the account, as well as the fact that it used to belong to the real Erica Gimbel, who was a Princesses: Long Island reality show star on Bravo. Former co-star and WWE Shop influencer Ashlee White confirmed to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp that the account is not operated by the real Gimbel, who reportedly now lives in Florida (not Colorado like the profile suggests) and works for a spa. It was also noted that the account was purged of posts before April of this year, but an accounts ‘likes’ will still remain. The last likes on that account were from 2014, which were all related to the Princesses show, which led to the belief that whoever is running the account now just found an abandoned account and started operating it under the guise of a designer with professional ties to WWE.
Requests for comment from Ashly to the other companies listed as clients in the account profile have not been answered at this time. While Bray Wyatt may be teasing a new face on this week’s SmackDown, the sketch and posts from ‘Erica Gimbel’ should be disregarded due to it being a fake.
