Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31st last year and since then the former WWE Superstar has already teased what he might do next. From what it seems, it once seemed he would be making his way to AEW far earlier than expected, as WWE may have let him have a shorter noncompete. Wyatt also appeared on March 13th, at the Showcase of Legends 7 event in Albany, New York. Braun Strowman was released last year as well.
He finally returned during WWE Extreme Rules as well, as fans simply lost their minds. He continues to cut eerie promos even now.
Wrestling veteran and former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently spoke on Writing with Russo, where he revealed that Bray Wyatt has messaged him once or twice.
“I’ve even gotten a personal DM or two from Bray [Wyatt]. The guy has demons. If that’s what this story is about, then it could be great in so many ways. If it turns out in a way where he can deal with his demons in public, then I really believe this is stemming from something that is very real.
From what I understand, Bray [Wyatt] is working with another writer who had worked on his movie with him. I like the sound of that because I know when it concerns Bray Wyatt it’s going to get to a level that other people cannot comprehend. And here’s what happens in wrestling – once they get to a level that they can’t comprehend, all of a sudden, they feel very insecure because now you’re smarter than them. They don’t like that, bro. They don’t like when a wrestler is smarter to them.”
