Bray Wyatt: Top WWE stars ‘concerned’ about their jobs after release

Last updated

WWE recently revealed that now-former Superstar Bray Wyatt had been released from the company. The promotion confirmed the news at the weekend on Twitter.

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

According to a report from Fightful Select, several WWE Superstars now do not feel ‘safe’ in their roles with the company.

The official reason for Bray Wyatt being released from WWE was ‘budget cuts,’ at least this is what the talent where told over the weekend.

The ‘real’ reason for Wyatt being released has not been revealed, and it is likely we will not find out until Rotunda himself tells all as part of a post-WWE shoot interview.

“It was well known within the company to move merchandise when he was an active performer, and several other long-time stars said that they don’t feel like their jobs are safe any longer, despite of their positions on the card or prior pushes.”


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 before that.

Black could 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. It’s unlikely that Bray only had 30-days on his non-compete and will be out of action for at least 90.

Check back for more on Wyatt as and when the story develops.
