Reason for Bray Wyatt’s release

Jul 31, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

In a strange and perplexing move, WWE released mat veteran Bray Wyatt on Saturday morning. The obvious question is, why? Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp tweeted, “One source indicated to me that Bray Wyatt was actually discussed during a prior round of WWE cuts.”

Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer later noted, “Wyatt was told his release was due to budget cuts. He had been preparing to return in August.”

Stay tuned for updates.

    This is absolute BS! This man constantly did his best and managed to return from the utter crap booking he suffered from. Came up with a brilliant character in The Fiend only to then be used poorly multiple times throughout that run. His creativty will be valuable to literally any promotion other than ther WWE.
    I can’t even truly put into words how pissed off and stunned at his release, just absolute crap.

    I don’t get why people are mad at WWE over this, he wasn’t being used, and no plans to use him, do you want them to shelve him and pay him to stay off TV for years? No release him now you’ll “hopefully” see his true talent somewhere else.
