Now, as the WWE Universe, Wyatt leaving is The Fiend leaving. So, essentially, WWE just released one of the most creative and unique characters the company ever came up with. It’s quite the shock for the WWE Universe, and the rest of the Wrestling Industry!

The only question is – How does WWE not have a storyline for Bray Wyatt a.k.a. The Fiend?

Bray Wyatt appeared at WrestleMania 37

It seems like the company has released potential Superstars who appeared at one of the major PPVs of 2021.

Wyatt appeared at WrestleMania 37 as The Fiend. He clashed with Randy Orton, and even Alexa Bliss was a part of the match. He lost the match after Bliss appeared, with black blood flowing from her face.

This entire storyline was unique which involved an Inferno Match, Black Blood, Orton vs Bliss, Fiend coming back from his ashes, and whatnot! The fact that WWE released him from his contract is absolutely devastating.

Moreover, Alexa Bliss got her new avatar after she allowed The Fiend to influence her. Additionally, the segments she cut with Bray Wyatt in the Firefly Fun House were legendary. Now, what does this mean for Alexa Bliss considering she is the real protege of The Fiend?

Wyatt pulled off two unique characters with ease without allowing one to overpower the other.

Of course, it’s too soon to say what is next for Wyatt. He may choose to wrestle further or he may choose to quit the industry.

However, Tony Khan is known to give former Superstars a fresh start. If he can bring Wyatt onboard, AEW will be on the rise!
