    Re: Bray Wyatt released

    The Fiend was complete and utter garbage, so I'm not sad to see that gone.

    Bray had his moments, NXT Bray was fantastic, but Vince turned it all Supernatural and then Bray himself fell in love with that sort of nonsense. His matches were always duds and nearly every Bray feud felt like a real chore to get through with his rambling promos and predictable results.

    If he winds up in AEW or Impact or wherever else hopefully he just dumps The Fiend gimmick and reverts to something resembling original Bray Wyatt.

    I don't want to see this man in AEW at all and all these NEW LEADER OF DARK ORDER things I'm seeing instantly put me off the Dark Order. Stay away from AEW. Go to GCW or somewhere not affiliated with AEW.

    Not sure where I see him going. I'd totally get if AEW wanted him, big name, creative mind, big merch seller, all qualities they'd want. Problem is there's so much stink on the end of his WWE run I worry he'd drag the product down.

    Shocker to see him released though.

    Was Wyatt a major merch seller?

    I don't have exact numbers, but it was reported pretty widely that The Fiend shifted a ton of merch, at points the most on the roster.

    I really liked the Firefly Funhouse and Fiend character. I just think Vince didn't know what to do with him. They had him lose a hell in a cell match by DQ, rushed a title on him, and then had him job to Goldberg. I'd like to see any character survive that. Imagine if Undertaker debuted, lost 90% of the time with commentary often laughing at his gimmick then he got the title and lost it to Hulk Hogan.

    I do think a Bray Wyatt character in AEW would be handled better.

    I also feel it would be very disrespectful to have him become the leader of dark order. The dark order was finally Brodie becoming a leader after so many years of being a follower. Having Bray come and just take back leadership would feel wrong to me.

    Re: Bray Wyatt released

    Hugely surprised by this. Even if he was on a big contract the fact that he's an incredibly creative person with a fantastic mind for the buiness I'm shocked that they have so willingly set free someone who can be such a huge asset to a rival company so willingly.

    In terms of his on-screen work, I've not fully enjoyed Bray Wyatt since the very early days. When the character debuted in NXT and during the early days of his main roster run with the character, it was absolutley amazing. I loved the Waylon Mercy reboot with the hint of Max Cady from Cape Fear thrown in there. And the addition of Harper, Rowan and eventually Braun as followers were great.
    But then as soon as Vince properly got his clutches into it, the character transformed and strayed more and more towards another supernatural character and an Undertaker wannabe. The character was never meant to have supernatural powers and I don't understand why they deviated towards that.

    They tried to revive the character by pairing him with 'Woken' Matt Hardy which didn't work and then eventually we got to the Firefly Funhouse and the split personality of The Fiend. We had one good storyline with this character and that was agains tJohn Cena for Wrestlemania 36. The rest was a load of rubbish in the grand scheme of things and the semingly endless feud he had with Randy Orton was the icing on the cake.
    They also completely killed the character off the moment they introduced Alexa Bliss to the mix. That's no slight on Bliss btw, but they basically took the gimmick off of Bray and put it on Bliss. She's now stuck in her own rut straddled with a ridiculous gimmick that doesnt' belong to her with no obvious end in sight.

    Crazy that he's gone but I wouldn't at all be surprised if Bray took a break from wrestling alltogether from this. I imagine that cody will be going all out to try and recruit him but I can see Bray staying away froa while. He hasn't seemed right since Brodie Lee passed away and that obviously hit him hard. I could see him returning to WWE down the line for sure.
