While rumours are that Wyatt will sign with AEW, IMPACT Wrestling has shown similar interest. Dave Meltzer reported that if Wyatt chooses IMPACT, it could be at Bound For Glory. On the other hand, his potential AEW debut could be on AEW Dynamite: September 29th, 2021.

This show is supposed to take place in Rochester, NY. one reason this is the rumoured date is because Rochester is Brodie Lee’s home city, and being friends with Lee, it could be Wyatt’s tribute to Brodie Lee.

Bray Wyatt will be a strong addition to the AEW roster

Recently, AEW has acquired several strong former WWE Superstars – Adam Cole, Daniel Bryan, and Ruby Riott as Ruby Soho on AEW All Out 2021.

On the other hand, CM Punk made his AEW debut on Rampage, and then had his first match in seven years at AEW All Out 2021.

Currently, the AEW roster is rather strong. Even though most of them are former WWE Superstars, it’s evident that Tony Khan has a target audience.

The company which started out small is becoming quite the competitor for the industry’s giant. Therefore, a pro-wrestler like Bray Wyatt could really add value to the company.

Keeping aside the skills he will bring as a pro-wrestler, he’s also good with cutting promos.

A wrestler who has skills of portraying two characters who are on the opposite end of a spectrum, yet managing to connect with a certain darkness, is valuable.

In fact, when WWE released him, everyone was shocked! It definitely wasn’t in the company’s best interest because if the creative team couldn’t come up with a story for The Fiend, it’s a loss for WWE.
