Reports have emerged about Bray Wyatt and WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio.
Wyatt has been one of the most fan-favorite stars. However, he has not been featured inside the squared circle since his storyline with LA Knight following the former’s return last year. Wyatt reportedly had been pulled out of WrestleMania 39. He was announced to battle Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 39. It was reported that Bray Wyatt temporarily walked out on WWE after frustrations over Bobby Lashley being his WrestleMania opponent and not Brock Lesnar. Reports suggested that Wyatt has been dealing with a “physical issue.”
Ringside News reported that they reached out to discuss this situation with a tenured member of the WWE creative team.
“We were told that Bray Wyatt “has not been to a single television taping.””
“The report about Bray Wyatt “showing up a couple of times” in recent memory is fake news. He has also not made any trips to the WWE headquarter. At this time, Bray Wyatt’s name is still missing from the internal roster, but he is still under contract.”
Meanwhile, Rey Mysterio recently suffered an injury during a match against Santos Escobar on SmackDown. Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that, “Rey Mysterio sustained a legitimate injury on SmackDown.” It seems that this wasn’t all a part of the show after all. Santos Escobar was always supposed to win the match, but the finish was changed.
“Fightful sources confirmed late Friday that Rey Mysterios spot on Smackdown was not storyline as originally suspected. We’ve learned that Santos Escobar was actually supposed to win the match clean, and an audible was called and the match was ended.”
It was also noted that, “in addition, there was a backstage segment follow up that was planned that had to he nixed.”
