Former WWE writer reveals possible reason WWE released Bray Wyatt
WWE has released a number of big names this year, and last month the company shocked the world when it was announced that Bray Wyatt had been released from his contract. Bray Wyatt has his fair share of fans, and the outing was surprising as he has at times been considered one of the best stars in the company.
Former WWE writer Freddie Prinze Jr. recently discussed the trials and tribulations of Bray Wyatt’s running in WWE during an appearance on The Ringer Wrestling Show, and he indicated that the issues between Bray Wyatt and Vince McMahon could have led to Wyatt’s downfall.
“I can’t tell you everything I know. I know Bray, I wouldn’t say we are friends but we are acquaintances, but I still have friends in the company. Like I said earlier, if you’re willing to work in a specific way, even if you have a bad match, in the eyes of the top two guys in the business, it’s a good match because you do. business in their own way. If you want to get out of that way and widen your river or just show that there are other streams, even if you have a good match, it’s just a good match. And when you stick to your guns over and over again, they’re going to stick to theirs. Look, Vince is an ’80s product. It’s Reaganomics, when there are problems, he puts money in it. It’s an old-fashioned way of thinking. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t, but these are the men who will overtake him and Kevin. And for better or for worse, they will always double.
“I don’t think Bray had a good enough hand to play poker with them in this game. And that’s why he lost the first time in a weird way in Abu Dhabi [Saudi Arabia] and that’s why things went south from there. His segments weren’t hurting, his performance wasn’t hurting. I just think if you’re not ready to play ball then they’ll let you know, ‘Hey, you’re not trying to play ball. We’re not going to help you. We have given you this platform and you are not using it the way we want you to use it. ‘ And this is business, you can figure it out.
Bray Wyatt’s non-compete clause is believed to expire on October 29, and the former WWE Champion is rumored to be linked to AEW.
