Bray Wyatt was released from WWE back in July, 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 protested against his release as ‘We Want Wyatt’ chants broke out on Monday Night RAW. Fans also made sure that they made it clear that Bray Wyatt was missed during SummerSlam. This especially happened during the match between Alexa Bliss and Eva Marie.
Many fans also wondered whether Bray Wyatt will be making his way to AEW after this release from the company. Earlier this month Matt Hardy even teased a reunion with Bray Wyatt in AEW.
While speaking on the 83 Weeks Podcast, Eric Bischoff talked about Bray Wyatt making his way to AEW. Bischoff believes that AEW should delay Wyatt’s debut to at least next year as the company has already signed several big-name talents back to back.
“Let’s just assume Bray Wyatt is going to end up [in AEW]. I wouldn’t do that till after the first of [January]. I’d save that for the first quarter of next year because they’ve had so many signings, and they’re great ones too. I’m not being critical or dismissing them in any form. You got Sting, Christian Cage, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Ruby Soho, etc.
“These are super talented assets, they’ve brought in so many great assets over such a short period of time they tend to dilute each other and it’s not as meaningful as it could be, in my opinion, if they were spaced out a little more. That’s why if I was bringing in Bray Wyatt, if I was Tony Khan, I’d lay off the surprises and the chatter about who’s coming in and not coming in and more for the audience. It’s like a roller coaster and we’ve been on this incredible, exciting roller coaster ride, and the only way you’re going to enjoy the next big exhilaration point on that roller coaster is to get a little bit of a rest.
Take it down, slow it down so that when you speed it up again and take the audience to that peak of that moment and deliver your next surprise, just give them a rest so they’ve got more energy to get ready for that ride. It’s not fatigue, don’t get me wrong, but we’re getting close to surprise fatigue.”
Bray Wyatt also recently stated that fans will be seeing him very soon. We will have to wait and see if Wyatt truly will make his way to AEW or not in the future.
