Former WWE writer discusses Bray Wyatt's release

Bray Wyatt was released by WWE on July 31, in what will be remembered as one of the most shocking days in recent wrestling history. The budget cuts have been pointed to as the main reason for the dismissal of 'The Fiend', who had played only one match since December 2020 until the fateful news of his departure.

The Stamford-based federation has had to make painful decisions to stem the damage related to the pandemic, which has turned the whole world upside down, starting a new era. Only a few weeks ago, WWE has received permission to return to host fans in the arenas, with the hope that the return to normal will not suffer further setbacks.

The worsening health situation in Nevada could affect the performance of SummerSlam, which will be staged in Las Vegas on 21 August. During the latest edition of 'Writing with Russo' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo criticized the way the entire Wyatt affair was handled.

It's been more than a week since Bray Wyatt was released

Recall that Bray Wyatt's father - Mike Rotunda - was a five-time WWE tag team champion and continued to work backstage for years to come. "We must not overlook the fact that Bray Wyatt represents a second-generation wrestler" - explained Vince Russo.

“All the second generation superstars find themselves having to manage similar moments! From childhood they are taught by their fathers, which is a huge plus in some respects. Bray had incredible creativity and personality.

I can't understand how such a thing could have happened, I swear to God. If I couldn't get Bray Wyatt to shine, it would mean I'm not cut out for the job. I believe there are two possible explanations for this. The first is that WWE doesn't know how to write decent stories, while the second is that it's a deliberate choice.

They did not want him to show all his superiority over his colleagues," he ruled. Of course, Mick Foley was once attacked by The Fiend, so he has first-hand knowledge regarding Bray Wyatt's alter-ego. It was reported that The Fiend/Bray Wyatt was set to make his return to the company tonight on RAW, so this could have been something that fell through the cracks when preparing for the show since Wyatt's release only happened a week ago. It's also worth noting that this promo was only played for fans who were in attendance at The Amway Center.
