Reason: Bray was more creative than their entire writing staff and WWE couldn't stand the embarrassment.

The Fiend was literally the most creative character on the WWE roster and getting rid of Bray is literally the dumbest thing the wwe has done in several years.

No no, WWE releasing bray Wyatt is arguably the DUMBEST!!!!!!! thing that wwe has EVER done in the history of that company!!! When I first seen it, I told myself there is absolutely no way WWE decided to release bray, it has to be something like bray asked for his release or demanded his release or something like that and I just now found out in this video that that was not the case and WWE was the ones that decided to release him and use the budget cut shit excuse to explain it, I literally busted out laughing for real and not because I think it's funny, but just out of plain bewilderment of it I just busted out laughing saying WOW over and over. Bray was one of the very very few, probably one of the 3 or 4 people maybe that I would have bet huge money on was lifers and safe and secure from any kind of release. Bray, roman of course and Seth Rollins really is the only 3 I can think of. Hell I thought Strowman being released was huge but not as huge as this. What a dumb dumb company.

@Paul Counelis I would LOVE to have Bray on the roster! Hell, I'd love to have him as head of creative!
Christian Alexander
He didn't get buried by one loss
@Rob G Undertaker was also allowed to craft his character and not be limited by scripts and script rewrites and having to appease sponsors and this and that. WWE back then was far more different from what it is today. How often do wrestlers organically reach the top of the card anymore? Nowhere near as much as back then, but both eras just as marred by politics. All Bray/Fiend needed was booking to back him up sometimes. Taker lost some feuds. He didn't lose EVERY feud. Taker also got lucky with Wrestlemania wins before they finally noticed that hey, you've never lost at WM. Just look back at the big bone head booking decisions. If there's anyone, ANYONE, who could've handled ending Taker's streak more than Lesnar, it's Bray. Instead they have him carry an entire buildup by himself and then just do the job. He was becoming Kane 2.0. A character that had fans behind him, but never booking or management. Kane had a bunch of gatekeeper title runs with IC and Tag titles and a few 'thanks for being a company man' World title runs. If I was Bray, I wouldn't want that. I'd want to be able to breathe life into my character and not be weighed down by management.
Rob G
Rob G Yıl önce
@Kiki Laker The Undertaker wouldn't even get over in this era. How do you book a character like The Fiend without everyone crying whenever he loses a match. The Attiude era and internet killed all of that. Remember when rookie Undertaker beat Hogan for the championship and then dropped the belt back to him 2 days later, noone screamed he was buried, no one cried, life went on and he became a legend,this era of fans doesn't have that patience and Vince doesn't book stars like he used to.
Kiki Laker
Kiki Laker Yıl önce
@Rob G yeah but does every single character have to be over exposed? I do agree the character had its ceiling. I have some ideas to give it longevity, but in the end I think there can only be one undertaker-type character.
The Fatman Reacts!
I'm sure that Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho are both in Tony's ear saying, "Don't care what it costs, you NEED to sign Bray, he'll get anyone and anything over."

@Ofentse Mwase Films no...WWE filed a trademark for it but, it never went through. Bray also copyrighted the gimmick which is why it's so hard for them to get the trademark. This is why they don't sell anymore merchandise involving the fiend.

I'm sure he'll love his time in AEW, normally I wouldn't say that a talent should automatically join AEW, but the Brodie Lee history, the creative control, everything screams All Elite, and if there's one thing AEW can do well, it's letting them tell their own stories

Bray Wyatt was literally one of the most memorable and creative characters WWE has had in the company’s entire history, both as normal Bray and the fiend. He lived up to his creativity by being an amazing ring performer and being a beast on the mic. He put so much dedication into the character which forced the audience to take him seriously, and ultimately he became one of the company’s biggest stars even if he never got the credit that he truly deserved. His release is absolutely heartbreaking for me.

@The Fiend - Shoxx Norris it might seem that way, but I don't think it's the case. WWE is not Vince's creation, it's his father's (Vince Sr.), despite it is Vince who made it what it is today. The problem is, Vince can't find a deserving successor.

@Christopher Marriott I don't think Vince is in denial. What Vince is and has said many times. He is a "workaholic" When a workaholic slows down and then retires fulltime. If they don't find a hobby to keep them busy. It can effect their health in not the best way. So let's put wrestling on to the side and think that maybe Vince doesn't want to retire. Because perhaps he doesn't have a hobby to take it's place and afraid of what could happen to his health...js

@LJ54 I’m pretty sure I saw a documentary on the start up of AEW saying the exact opposite 🤷🏻‍♂️. Like the whole premise was to not burn people out and treat them like a commodity once under their employment.

Bray was the most interesting thing in wwe for years, and kept making himself interesting in spite of being booked into oblivion the whole time. The man is fire, an I'm excited to see what he does with AEW now - give him creative freedom and book him with the intent to build a star, and he will carry the whole promotion on his back without breaking a sweat. I wonder if WWE will even refer back to the Fiend now, and how they will make any sense of Alexa Bliss without doing so. Bleh.

I wonder if Dark Order would consider Bray as a new member since Brody and Bray shared a lot of chemistry so it would be awesome to see Bray takeover what Brody did in AEW
Furúkawá Studios
Call me 'crazy', but I know that Kyle Scarborough creates a lot of art inspired by Bray.. I think it'd be awesome if the two were to collaborate on a stand alone graphic novel (or even a novel series) based on the transformation of his character. And my 2nd thing is that I personally would love to see Bray show up in New Japan: and continue that family legacy over there.

This may sound heretical, so hear me out. What if they realized that they did things to his character in the age of no crowds that they'll never be able to pull off in front of people? Call it the price of the cinematic matches. They set a standard for him they'll never be able to maintain and, quite frankly, if they tried wouldn't work and would just push even more people away. Going away for a couple of years to rehab the image may be exactly what he needs.
If he goes to AEW I'm excited about the prospect of Hardy and Wyatt together and less restrained and dictated too by management

@Simply Razeen I'm ok with cartoonish, I'm not ok with completely out the realm of believability. The fact you didn't bring up Matt Hardy is quite telling, he stopped doing the stupid crap so I thought AEW were gonna play it straight a bit. Tell me anything that any of the people you listed do, that can't be done in real life.

For current WWE fans: I was an Attitude Era kid, & haven’t really followed the WWE in a long time. My friend still follows it, & he’s legitimately shocked by this move. My question for fans is, if you could compare Bray Wyatt to an Attitude Era Star (based on talent/ popularity), who would it be?

After Punk's departure from 2014, I never watched WWE anymore. I just found out that this year, they released a lot of people including Bray. I'll miss those Wyatt Family assaults back in the days, lol. I wonder how the OG back in those years felt about WWE right now.
Just Bray having breathing room for his character makes this very exciting.

I hope Bray is ok and if there are issuse that he takes all the time he needs to sort them. As long as we can watch where ever he goes i will watch as he is amazing and maybe he could even bring his brother with him and work together for a bit.
Shocked. Sad. Us wrestling fans are finding it difficult to support and still watch wwe without feeling regret with what they’ve done

Got a confession to make, I have not watch any wrestling weekly show for almost a decade, since AEW this past week. To me it feel like it was WWE back in the 90s, when it was called WWF. WWE has more competition on their hands then they think and if they are not careful, WWE could easily become the new WCW. Either that or WWE really is going the Entertainment Studio route that so many have speculated and is about to quit wrestling altogether.

See what makes AEW so different is that they are not intentionally trying to compete with wwe unlike what WCW and TNA was doing they are simply trying to put out the best show they can while giving their superstars creative freedom

Every time I see a video about Bray Wyatt/the Fiend I am always confused. The guy is very good on the mic (even if I think that the super powers/monster gimmick is ridiculous in 2021) but I always thought he was/is very bland in the ring with extremely boring matches. I really don't see what is entertaining about him..

Bray as new Dark Order leader getting them back on their feet after losing to The Elite; takes 5 under his wing and gets him to stand up to the rest bullying him, talks Page into becoming part of it, etc. Classic Bray character and honor Brody and refer to him as the great leader that he's taking the task on in honor of. It would work.

I'd honestly love to see bray and -1, it'd be a great way to turn DO heel again you could have silver and Reynolds kicked out the group after they don't turn on paige big 6 man bray uno and stu vs paige silver Reynolds with bray picking up the big W (without hangman being pinned)

@Shaunuthun i personally think Hangman is already the new leader of Dark Order in spirit. That entrance for Dynamite was amazing. There could be a new exalted one down the line but the group rallying behind him and Hangman embracing them is a great story.

Hangman should be the leader. Maybe give Bray a villainous influence over some members as a malicious force trying to take it over but failing or succeeding in a different way.
@GreatWhiteGoodnight Give Bo Dallas a dark character.
I sort've want him to team with Bo Dallas somewhere. I mean, they ARE brothers...

I know this will come across as a bash on AEW but It's not my intention even though I really don't like AEW. Part of what made Bray Wyatt great was how he utilized the great production of WWE. AEW doesn't hold a candle to WWE from a production standpoint. I just feel like he'll be held back in AEW when it comes to creative when he realizes he can't pull off half the stuff he could in WWE. I could be completely wrong and I'll accept and admit it if I am. That's just how I feel right now. AEW comes across like late WCW to me and it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
All thats left on my "WWE to AEW Wish List" is New Day, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Finn Balor, Cesaro and Samoa Joe.

Bray Wyatt had such a special thing with The Fiend, but when he gets squashed by Goldberg and loses to Randy Orton, it's hard for us to get invested in the character.

I really think Vince is doing this because of two things. He's releasing wrestlers in mass Quantities. 1 Vince's mental state 2 Vince is preparing to sell the company. He using budget cuts as an excuse. He does want to have so many wrestlers on he's roster when the news finally goes down.

I watched this earlier and I've come back to it. I don't watch wrestling anymore and I don't like the Fiend, but Vince doesn't know what to do with 90% of the roster. Bray should have ended Taker's streak. But everyone knows that except Vince.

I think WWE is hoping for a repeat of WCW for AEW. Back then, WWE also had a number of high-profile talents leaving WWE to join WCW but WCW failed because they had an over-saturation of talent. Now WWE is doing the same for AEW by letting AEW absorb its talents. At the end of the day, you can only have a handful of people at the top. AEW can have a hard time managing all those talents if they have too many in an attempt to compete with WWE.
