However, ever since his release, Wyatt has taken to Twitter and subtly hinted at telling his side of the story.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select recently revealed that a massive fallout took place between the former WWE Champion, and the WWE creative team, especially with McMahon, who had, at that point, lost interest in Wyatt’s abilities.

Bray Wyatt’s 12-year tenure with WWE ended because the management lost trust in his abilities, and he had been very outspoken about his bizarre storyline with Randy Orton.

Vince McMahon stopped liking Bray Wyatt

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select dropped a new report that Wyatt did not like the way his feud turned out with Randy Orton and had complained about the burned mask and attire after WrestleMania 37.

“There were numerous people backstage who said that Wyatt was outspoken when he thought creative was bad, and by the end, some felt Vince McMahon just didn’t like him due to that,” Sean wrote. [h/t: ComicBook]

Wyatt made a few appearances after he was burned alive and made to wear an attire that resembled a burned body; he also donned a burned mask.
