Is WWE shooting themselves in the leg?

A majority of the fans feel that WWE going down the wrong path by releasing so much of its talent. Popular names such as Zack Ryder, Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Mark Henry, etc. have done excellent for themselves after WWE. Former United States Champion, Miro/Rusev is another example of a wrestler reaching the sky and beyond following his release from WWE.

The most recently released wrestler is Bray Wyatt a.k.a. The Fiend. Wyatt was an absolute fan favorite and his new gimmick was the best thing in WWE in months. However, the fans haven’t seen the Fiend since WrestleMania 37 and were wondering what might have happened.

Ex-WWE wrestlers going to WWE’s rival companies is bad for business. The popular wrestlers attract the eye of the fans and thus the ratings of WWE will go down significantly. The fans are not at all happy with WWE’s creative team.
