There was even a significant buzz around a possible debut of Sister Abigail at the big PPV event, but no such mystery appearance happened that night at the Citrus Bowl Stadium.

Rotonda open to join brothers in WWE
Mika Rotonda, who is rumored to play the Sister Abigail role, has never denied her interest in joining her brothers as a performer in WWE. As a matter of fact, she tried out for WWE’s developmental ranks in 2015, though the result of her NXT venture was never made public. The transition from a production staff to a full-time wrestler might not be complicated for Rotonda since she has the proper body built for the craft. She also seems knowledgeable of the ins and outs of pro-wrestling business, coming from a family of professionals wrestlers.
Despite losing to Orton at Wrestlemania, Wyatt will have another crack at the WWE World Heavyweight championship when they face off in the first ever House of Horror match. Wyatt promises to give Orton few ‘surprises’ once he steps into the ring with him in the main event of WWE Backlash on May 21. Perhaps, one of these might turn out to be Sister Abigail in her flesh.
