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 once seemed likely 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.
According to Ringside News, it was said that it “is not exactly accurate” to say that Wyatt’s return has been pitched within creative. It was said that his name has been mentioned, but not it terms of ‘what will we do with him?’”
His name was mentioned to certain creative team members as advance notice that there may or may not be discussions going on, and that the rumor mill is churning about it.
It was nether a confirmation or a denial of discussions.
Bray's name is churning in the rumor mill but WWE is not copping to any actual talks. We were told that "His name was mentioned to certain creative team members as advance notice that there may or may not be discussions going on," but they did not confirm talks are happening
