For now, the news that's on everyone's lips is that relating to the firing of Bray Wyatt, who was released after months of absence from the rings of the McMahon-owned company. After having probably brought on the character that most attracted the attention of the media, fans of pro-wrestling, but also of the occasional audience, with the birth of the Fiend, Bray Wyatt had begun to have really big personal problems with the death of the 'close friend Brodie Lee, who passed away at the end of last year, from a difficult lung disease not linked to the covid.
This bad blow led Wyatt to be absent from the WWE rings for a long time and at the same time to stray too far from the thought of the Chairman, Vince McMahon and from that of the whole creative team, who in the end wanted to let him go permanently, not finding his ideas interesting anymore.
Bray Wyatt's release has shaken the entire wrestling world
Less than a full day after the news of his release, it seems that something new is boiling in the pot for Bray Wyatt, with a detail certainly not gone unnoticed by his fans and insiders, which would have begun to be talked about again more of him and his latest characters.
In his latest description on Bray Wyatt's official Instagram page, whose real name is Windham Rotunda, there is now written the phrase "Kult of Windham coming soon!!!", a sign that something new, probably related to his gimmick or to his character, may soon take on new life in the rings of some other pro-wrestling federation in the USA.
Recall that now, for at least 90 days, Bray will not be able to appear in the rings of any rival company of the WWE, unless the authorization from the McMahons arrives, which is quite unlikely and indeed almost impossible.
For three months then, Windham will have time to carry out all these new projects, with fans who are no longer in the skin in knowing what will be in the future of the former WWE Universal Champion. PWInsider additionally reported that the reactions across the board in the WWE were that of shock as Bray Wyatt's t-shirt and action figures were a hot-seller for the WWE.
Here's an excerpt from PWInsider's report: To say that the reaction within the company was stunned would be a massive understatement given how plugged into licensing the Wyatt character has been in recent years. The Fiend had been a massive hit for t-shirts and action figures.
