The former WWE Universal Champion Bray Wyatt was recently released from his contract and the reason was stated as the usual ‘budget cuts.’
Wyatt was doing great regarding the merchandise sales. WWE letting him go really shocked the fans while some believe ‘budget cuts’ is not the actual reason, perhaps there is more to the story. WWE ‘Mass Firings’ After SummerSlam Leak?
X-Pac opens up on Bray Wyatt release
During his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast, X-Pac opened up about Bray Wyatt’s WWE release and how he does not believe the “budget cuts” logic in this case.
“I don’t know man. There must be more to the story than anyone knows. There doesn’t have to be, but it seems there might be because it doesn’t make any sense. I mean, I guess maybe if you’re strictly looking at it from the accounting books, profits and losses, ‘Okay, let’s get rid of anyone with a big fat downside guarantee.’ You’re really testing the goodwill of the people that support the product. I wasn’t around enough, so it’s hard for me. Obviously, he’s brilliant. On a personal level, I could tell you, he’s a great guy. People say that about a lot of people, and there’s a lot of great guys, great women out there. It’s weird.”
There is certainly more to this story. Wyatt is set for an epic shoot interview in the future where he will tell all. We will have to see what is next for him.
