The Undertaker Hopes Bray Wyatt Returns To WWE
The Undertaker wants to see Bray Wyatt come back to WWE. The latter was released from his WWE contract last summer.
The Undertaker hopes that WWE will eventually bring back Bray Wyatt, his opponent from WrestleMania 31.
On July 31 of last year, WWE announced that they had released Wyatt from his contract. Needless to say, it was one of the most stunning superstar cuts in recent memory. Wyatt had been a mainstay in WWE for several years, and he was among the company’s more accomplished and popular superstars.
Speaking at WrestleMania Axxess, The 2022 WWE Hall of Fame inductee told fans that he would like to see Wyatt return to the company tha made him a major star.
“I hope things get worked out with him somewhere,” The Phenom said (via WrestlingInc.com). “He is a phenomenal talent and I think he has a lot to offer this industry. So, I want to wish the best for him. Hopefully, at some point, he comes home.”
Of course, it’s not uncommon for WWE to eventually bring back a superstar that was recently released. Queen Zelina was released in November 2020 but wound up returning on a new contract last summer. Shortly after his April 2021 release, Samoa Joe was brought back (the company released him again in January) and went on to regain the NXT Championship.
His WWE 90-day non-compete clause expired back in late October, so Wyatt has been free to sign elsewhere for almost six months now. During a Q&A on Instagram earlier this month, Wyatt did express a desire to eventually return to the squared circle, emphasizing that “timing is everything.”
Wyatt was reportedly informed that he was being let go due to budget cuts. However, it was also reported that Vince McMahon came to dislike the former Universal Champion because he was apparently openly critical of WWE creative. On top of that, Wyatt reportedly had attitude issues which led to the decision to release him.
Bray Wyatt’s Final WWE Match
Wyatt wrestled his final match for WWE one year ago today, at day two of WrestleMania 37 weekend. Alexa Bliss betrayed Wyatt in the early stages of the match, and Randy Orton quickly defeated his stunned former Wyatt Family leader via pinfall after performing the RKO finisher. Wyatt would appear on the post-WrestleMania edition of Raw in a “Firefly Fun House” segment that turned out to be his final appearance on WWE programming.
