Bray Wyatt became very famous thanks to his WWE experience. During his tenure in the Stamford federation, the 35-year-old from Brooksville won the WWE Championship once and the Universal title twice, making him a three-time world champion.
He also won the Raw Tag Team Championship once with Matt Hardy and once the SmackDown Tag Team Championship against Luke Harper and Randy Orton. His farewell to WWE remains shrouded in mystery. On July 31, 2021, after several months of absence from the ring, WWE announced that Wyatt had been released.
In the latest episode of 'Writing with Russo' on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo said the company was unable to tap into Bray's enormous potential.
Vince Russo on Bray Wyatt
“There was no one in WWE who could create compelling storylines for a star like Bray Wyatt.
If you are not able to exploit his enormous potential, you are forced to drop him” - explained Vince Russo. “The company had no more ideas for his character and Bray Wyatt had become a wrestler like any other. He wasn't supposed to be like that.
When you have such a talented performer, you have to look after him every single week. It wasn't Wyatt's fault” - he upped the ante. Vince also reflected on the new Brock Lesnar: “This version of the Beast is a lot more fun and intriguing than the old one.
Brock enjoys being a clown, laughs, jokes, smiles and interacts with the audience. All things he had never done before. He is doing what he has never been able to do Goldberg. Here lies the big difference between the two. Lesnar was able to show a different side of the character to him, while Bill stayed the same for too many years.
" An opinion on Tommaso Ciampa could not be missing: “I know he was one of the most famous faces of NXT, but his arrival on the main roster has not been a success so far. WWE is in danger of burning him forever”.
Vince Russo has major doubts about WWE’s booking options if Roman Reigns loses the Undisputed Universal Championship. “I can’t tell you,” Russo said. “You have such a limited hand, and how do you play these cards? The problem is, you have such a limited hand that nothing’s gonna be organic and nothing’s going to make sense. So, no matter what you do, it’s going to be forced”.
