Bray Wyatt was released from WWE back in July and it utterly shocked the pro wrestling industry. Jim Ross even previously stated that Wyatt’s release from WWE proved that the company has bad management. Several people simply couldn’t understand why he was even released, but perhaps he wanted out.
Fans protested against his release as ‘We Want Wyatt’ chants broke out on Monday Night RAW and even made a ruckus during SummerSlam back in August. Many fans also wondered whether Bray Wyatt will be making his way to AEW after this release from the company.
Bray Wyatt’s Fiend character was one of the most creative gimmicks in the company’s history. In a creatively restricted environment such as WWE, fans wondered how much creative control Wyatt really had.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about WWE contracts and said that someone like Bray Wyatt would only be released if they wanted it.
Bray Wyatt is a completely different situation. Wyatt scared a lot of people because if someone like Wyatt gets fired, then only guys like Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar are safe.
I think that’s not really the case when you are at that level. The only reason someone would want to cut someone like that would be if they wanted out and made a lot of noise about it.
Bray Wyatt’s first post-WWE appearance was already previously announced. Bray Wyatt’s creative genius was ultimately squandered in WWE according to many fans. It remains to be seen what is next in store for the former Eater Of Worlds.
