Bray Wyatt was a draw and one of WWE’s biggest stars. The television networks also realize how much Bray Wyatt moved the needle, and there is apparently some frustration about Vince McMahon’s company letting the Eater of Worlds go.
Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast’s Andrew Zarian tweeted out to reveal a very interesting tidbit of information. He received a quote from someone at either USA Network or FOX which shared some of the disappointment that many fans had over Windham Rotunda’s firing.
I’m hearing a lot of frustration from the networks regarding Bray release.
“Bray’s released is really disappointing and a little scary that top stars are being let go” – network source
We previously reported that Bray Wyatt was growing creatively frustrated with his angles in WWE. He was also reportedly protective of his character. After his WWE release, those characters still belong to Vince McMahon’s company.
Zarian later tweeted back to clarify that “I speak to many of them [networks] weekly. Most are not really big wrestling fans so they don’t really know what’s happening weekly on TV. They do however know the names.” Obviously, Bray Wyatt’s name was one that everyone knew.
There is a lot to unpack in this situation and a ton of unanswered questions. Hopefully, Windham Rotunda is having a great day today and he continues a life of happiness, no matter where he goes next.
