As noted, WWE announced the surprise release of Bray Wyatt this past Saturday. In an update, Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated reports that since Wyatt’s WrestleMania 37 loss to Randy Orton, he has been out with an “undisclosed physical ailment that is not concussion-related.”
Wyatt was finally medically cleared last Thursday, just two days before his release was announced on Saturday.
It was noted that Wyatt lost leverage when he inked his last WWE contract. He reportedly signed a new multi-million dollar deal in 2020, and agreed to a 90-day non-compete clause. Wyatt is set to become a free agent when his WWE non-compete expires on Friday, October 29. There is no word yet on if AEW is interested in bringing him in.
