Backstage News on Bray Wyatt
In his last speech to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the well-known journalist Dave Meltzer wanted to speak extensively about the firing of Bray Wyatt, despite the fact that more than three months have passed since his release.
In his update, Meltzer indeed stated: “Bray Wyatt's situation is absolutely different. Wyatt has scared a lot of people because if someone like Wyatt gets fired, then only guys like Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar are safe.

Whether he comes back here or Impact, I don’t know at this point.

At one point he was apart on money from both promotions," said Meltzer.
