Bray Wyatt has officially been released from WWE

Last updated

WWE has revealed that now-former Superstar Bray Wyatt has been released from the company. The promotion confirmed the news this evening on Twitter.

Wyatt has not been seen on WWE programming for some time; with his last televised appearance being at the WrestleMania 37 PPV event in Florida.

There have been rumors of Bray Wyatt not being happy with the overall creative direction of The Fiend and Funhouse Bray characters. Interestingly though, prior reports have indicated that Wyatt had a major part to play in his own creative on WWE TV.

’˜The Fiend’ character for Bray Wyatt is arguably some of his best work on the WWE main roster, however his original ’˜cult leader’ Wyatt Family persona is also lauded by fans and critics, especially in hindsight.

There’s no news on when Bray was made aware of his release, however, we can expect him to now be sitting out a 90-day non-compete clause.

Several former WWE Superstars have gone on to sign with AEW, such as Malakai Black, who also played a dark character on-screen for WWE and NXT prior to that. Black was able to appear in AEW earlier than expected, due to a clerical error which meant he had a 30-day non-compete rather than the standard 90 for a main roster Superstar.

This news does appear to have come out of the blue, with fans believing that Bray Wyatt would be returning to WWE RAW or SmackDown at some point in the near future.
