WWE released Bray Wyatt yesterday in what is a move that is still sending shockwaves throughout the pro wrestling community.
It was the companies latest budget cutting measure, but it also sent a strong message through the backstage area. WWE has now released stars such as Andrade, Aleister Black, Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt over the last few months.
We’ve learned at The Ringside Roster that there’s currently a very uneasy feeling backstage with the superstars, even some which have been with the company a long time and have a higher position on the card. Bray Wyatt was very talented, well liked and he was also a great merchandise mover. The overall thought seems to be that if he can be released than nobody is truly safe.
We’ll have to see if WWE continues it cost cutting measures, but it’s clearly a tough time to be working in the company for everyone.
