Bray Wyatt was released from WWE last month, in a move that truly shocked the entire pro wrestling business. Jim Ross recently said Wyatt’s release from WWE proved that the company has bad management. Several people simply couldn’t understand why he was even released.
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 the Ringer Wrestling podcast, former WWE producer Freddie Prinze Jr. claimed that Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunne had issues with Bray Wyatt, which ultimately led to Wyatt’s downward spiral until his release.
“I can’t tell you everything I know. I know Bray, I wouldn’t say we’re friends, but we’re acquaintances. But I still have friends at the company. Like I said earlier, if you’re willing to work a specific way, then even if you have a bad match, in the eyes of the top two dudes at the company, it’s a good match because you’re doing business their way. If you’re wanting to step out of that lane and widen your river or just show there’s some other streams, even if you have a great match, it’s just a good match. And when you stick to your guns time and time again they’re going to stick to theirs.
Look, Vince is a product of the 80s, it’s Reaganomics. When there’s problems, he throws money at it, it’s an old-school way of thinking. It sometimes works, it sometimes doesn’t, but they’re men that will double down, him and Kevin for better worse they will always double down, and I don’t think Bray had a good enough hand to play poker with them that game, and that’s why he lost the first time in a weird way in [Saudi Arabia], and that’s why things kind of went south from there.”
Bray Wyatt’s last match saw him being defeated by Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 that did him no favors whatsoever. We wonder where Bray Wyatt will call his home next.
