WWE started firing wrestlers out of the blue ever since COVID struck the planet but now a year later, the firings just won’t stop. Recently, the company released mega-stars like Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Buddy Murphy, and many other talents.

Reportedly, the reason for this release is that WWE creative team had no further plans for Bray. Honestly, we don’t think it’s possible; The Fiend was full of opportunities and was doing wonders for the company.

Everyone is in shock with WWE firing of Bray Wyatt!

Recently released Braun Strowman immediately took to Twitter and wrote “Brother I’m waiting !!!!!!”. This seems like a subtle message from Strowman that he is planning to reunite with Bray and move to some other company, possibly AEW!

Ex-WWE color commentator Renee Paquette also tweeted after the firing, saying that the news is shocking and wished Bray well for his future journey.

Perhaps, the most interesting message came from another ex-WWE superstar, Chelsea Green. She tweeted and said that she is waiting for Bray Wyatt to come to the dark side.

Green herself played a distorted maniacal gimmick under the name Laurel Van Ness when she was with IMPACT Wrestling where she wrestled in her trashed wedding dress and make-up.

“Me waiting for @WWEBrayWyattto come to the dark side.” Chelsea wrote.

Whatever may be the reason for his firing, WWE had invested a ton of resources in Wyatt’s ‘The Fiend’ character, it helped the company in terms of their merchandise sales and whatnot.

Wyatt last fought at WrestleMania 37 against Randy Orton in an inferno match where Orton burnt him alive.

Bray Wyatt was the last remaining member of the legendary ‘Wyatt Family’ faction which gave us some splendid matches and over-the-top storylines. It will be interesting to see where will Wyatt turn to, in any case Tony Khan is always hiring.
