WWE decided to release Bray Wyatt (real name Windham Rotunda) in July 2021 despite him being one of its highest merchandise sellers.
Since his departure, fans have been left perplexed about what led to this decision - it seems budget cuts may have had something to do with his release.
Bray Wyatt shocked fans when he was released from WWE last year despite having been one of its highest-earning performers prior to being let go.
As former WWE Champion John Cena began appearing only occasionally on television prior to his release from prison, unfounded speculation started surfacing that his absence was caused by mental health issues; however, it's more likely caused by family engagements.
Following his release from WWE, Wyatt was teased with returning for Extreme Rules 2022 as The Fiend. This allowed for him to debut with horror elements integrated into his character gimmick.
Wyatt quickly established himself as a fan favorite following his sudden debut. His unique ability to reinvent his character constantly engages viewers while his incredible in-ring skills mesmerize spectators.
Wyatt has had great success during his time with WWE, winning two Universal Championships as well as both Raw and SmackDown tag team titles once each. Additionally, he has taken part in numerous matches at WrestleMania.
At WrestleMania 37 in 2021, he fell short to Randy Orton. This loss led him to appear on Firefly Funhouse and indicate it was time for change.
Since his fall from grace, fans have not witnessed much from the former WWE Champion. His current status with WWE remains unknown as he has yet to step into a competitive match in order to prove himself once more.
Bray Wyatt enjoys spending his free time with his daughters Kendyl and Cadyn. He is an avid supporter of the Oakland Raiders football team and even plays offensive guard for them himself!
On social media, he has amassed many followers who expect his return to WWE soon. While waiting, he keeps them updated through Twitter as to his status.
Two weeks ago, Wyatt posted on Twitter with an oblique hint about returning to WWE. On Monday night, WWE revealed several clues suggesting his return, such as an intriguing fan sign and match graphic.
Last summer, Bray Wyatt was abruptly dismissed from WWE, leading to considerable confusion and speculation. Unsubstantiated rumors circulated about his mental health; however, recently he appeared on social media and provided an update about his WWE future.
Wyatt Rotunda follows in the footsteps of his father Mike Rotunda, grandfather Blackjaj Mulligan and uncles Barry Windham and Kendall Windham as third generation wrestlers. Currently competing with his brother Bo Dallas at Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) tag team division; holding onto their Florida Tag Team championship!
He is a former world champion in WWE and holds both Universal Championship and SmackDown titles twice each. Additionally, he has made waves on NXT as an impressive performer within their developmental brand.
Wyatt was raised in Hernando, Florida a Tampa suburb. While attending Hernando High School he won a state wrestling title at 275 pounds before graduating that same year.
Wyatt was also active in American football during his high school days, earning himself a college scholarship from College of the Sequoias in California where he played two seasons on scholarship.
Wyatt was drawn to wrestling when he was young; both his parents had been professional wrestlers and inspired him. Today he enjoys an enormous fan base who are drawn by his incredible character and charisma.
Wyatt has become widely recognized throughout his career under his ring name of "The Fiend." As soon as he steps into the ring, his presence leaves audiences transfixed. His performances include many dark symbols that often draw applause from fans who lift lighters or cell phones to show support.
After taking a brief hiatus in 2018, Wyatt made his comeback in 2019 as an entertainer of young children and also hosted his own live gimmick show called Firefly Fun House.
Wyatt recently discussed his poor physical and mental health to Sportskeeda in an interview. Additionally, he mentioned his ongoing involvement in an horror film project.
Recent events surrounding Bray Wyatt have been deeply unsettling for his fans and fellow wrestlers, with no sight of him since his release from prison in 2021. No public appearances or tweets from him since his release has come forth either.
Fans have begun to realize there may be a valid explanation for Captain America's absence; Fightful has learned that he currently resides in Miami with Samantha, his high school love interest.
She has two grown children from a previous relationship, Cadyn and Kendyl - now grown. Cadyn and Kendyl's marriage ended quickly thereafter due to marital discord.
Samantha accused her husband, Tim, of cheating with WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman during a legal dispute and discovered it through evidence such as him spending over $11,000 over 10 days for strippers and diamonds for this illicit affair.
Samantha and Bray Wyatt have managed to maintain a strong bond despite their complicated situation, moving together into Miami, Florida recently and raising their children together as a family unit.
Wyatt also works full-time as a WWE producer. In this capacity he writes and produces many of the stories and characters featured in their events.
He is also a fan favorite at the company, renowned for creating an engaging hypnotic atmosphere to keep his fans watching with interest and enjoyment.
Bray's mask has quickly become an instant classic with his fans, due to its distinct look that perfectly complements his dark alter ego "The Fiend". Designed by legendary makeup artist Tom Savini.
Bray is an extremely charismatic and captivating person when wearing his mask; easily captivating opponents with his mysterious words and captivating them into listening to what they say about him.
His promos are known for their menacing tone and eye-catching visuals that never fail to captivate a crowd. Many have likened them to The Undertaker or Waylon Mercy due to their menacing promo delivery methods.
Following Bray Wyatt's release on July 31, 2021, WWE issued several teases to bring him back into their fold, such as QR codes on screens and white rabbits in the audience.
Fans attending October 8's Extreme Rules pay-per-view were treated to numerous white rabbit teases during the show that ultimately led to Wyatt making an unexpected comeback appearance - after being teased with mysterious tweets, QR codes, and more for several weeks prior. This culminated a campaign designed to bring back Wyatt into the WWE.
The Eater of Worlds made his return on SmackDown following Extreme Rules, in an emotional promo expressing how much he missed them before making a surprise appearance at the end. His upside-down fly logo then appeared on screen.
Fans have speculated whether Wyatt would only appear on one brand; recent reports indicated he might only make appearances on SmackDown Live, however new evidence indicates otherwise and suggests he will likely make appearances across both brands.
Fightful Select has reported that their source indicated Wyatt will make his second SmackDown appearance this evening in Toledo, Ohio. Plans have yet to be finalized but he's expected to appear wearing his "Uncle Howdy" mask.
Wyatt last wrestled on SmackDown brand against Miz in a dark match, which could indicate either that he wants to return and start feuding or is moving onto other projects.
After an extended absence from WWE, Wyatt finally made his long-awaited return at the end of October and appears to have made an excellent impression with many fans. Utilizing his Firefly Fun House gimmick, he successfully used it to stir up crowds before cutting an unexpectedly honest promo that left many delighted by his return to ringside.
While no longer on the main roster, Wyatt remains highly visible on social media with many followers and eager fans waiting to see him back in action in the ring.
