The Fiend remains one of the most unique characters to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. Bray Wyatt’s latest iteration made its in-ring debut back at 2019’s SummerSlam pay-per-view again Finn Balor, where he won in a squash match. However, his booking since then has been panned by many fans. Particularly him losing to Goldberg at WWE Super Showdown in 2020. He would lose to Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 in a singles match after being betrayed by Alexa Bliss. He had been absent from WWE television since then. Bray Wyatt could be losing The Fiend to a big name in WWE.
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 is likely he will 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.
Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s The Wrestling Outlaws, Road Dogg stated that he believes Bray Wyatt might have been released by WWE due to his huge contract.
“Look, I don’t know what else they could have done with him, to be quite honest with you. I think, just like my release, they needed to trim some fat. I think he was getting paid a ton, I think Braun Strowman was getting paid a ton. Do you know what I mean? They just looked around and saw. Look three years, they may bring him back. Do you know what I mean? He’ll be in better shape, he’s learned a ton and It’ll be the biggest thing ever. But I don’t know what the actual reason is that separated him from WWE.”
