Bray Wyatt was one of the most captivating performers in WWE during and even before the pandemic. After WWE released Wyatt from his contract in July, the wrestler immediately began plans for life post-McMahon.
Bray took to social media with a series of cryptic tweets that fans everywhere have been trying to figure out. Media and fans even speculated that the former WWE champion might figure out a loophole to get out of his 90-day no compete clause.
We still don’t know where the Eater of Worlds is going to wind up. We do know that Tony Khan and AEW are seriously intereted. Impact has also made no secret about their desire to sign the talented superstar.
In the October 18 edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed the future of Bray Wyatt. He said that while other companies can’t legally talk to the wrestler during his no-compete period, there is certainly interest in signing him.
Meltzer also revealed the new name that Wyatt intends to use in his post-WWE career. The 34-year-old will now be known simply a Windham. Windham Rotunda is his real-life name.
“Tony Khan did some interviews regarding Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt, who at least as of last word wanted to use the Windham name going forward). He said that he had never talked with him but was interested in talking with him. From a legal standpoint to avoid tampering since his 90-days just ended, he’s not supposed to talk with him even though in wrestling that stuff is always violated.”
Wherever he ends up, it sounds like Windham will be his ring name going forward. As soon as his 90 days expires, he is sure to turn up again on TV. He has also changed his name on Twitter to reflect the new moniker.
