Bray Wyatt was touted as one of the most creative WWE Superstars in the company for a long time. He continued to reinvent himself and break barriers, but ultimately WWE creative continued to let him down. In the end, Bray Wyatt was released from the company last month. That was a move that truly shook the pro wrestling world to its core. The company’s third-party partners were stunned as well. Many couldn’t believe he was released in the first place.

Fans made sure to protest against his release as ‘We Want Wyatt’ chants would break out on every episode of Monday Night RAW since his release.

While speaking on his Grilling JR Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about Bray Wyatt’s release from WWE. Ross stated that Wyatt’s release simply showed that WWE has bad management.

“There’s politics nowadays because of the immense salaries. Bray Wyatt gets cut, he’s got to be making north of a million on a downside guarantee and he’s been sitting home. That’s not good management.

I’m not saying the guy should’ve been cut, he should’ve been used if you’re going to pay him that kind of cash. How that happened is a story for another day because I don’t know the details. I do know they got rid of a very talented kid and I’m sure he won’t have any issues finding work, speaking of Bray Wyatt.”

Bray Wyatt has already teased a new character after his WWE release. We will have to wait and see if Bray Wyatt eventually makes his way to AEW or not. Windham Rotunda is far from finished in pro wrestling.
