  • In WWE the wrestler, who doesn't follow the story or who gets protective of their characters, gets punished and gives them a losing streak... That's what happened in The Fiend... This will be the biggest mistake of WWE... Releasing Bray Wyatt... They made us miss the Fiend then released him and now everyone wants to see him now... I would watch him wherever he goes.. 🥰🥰

  • Ok real talk? Is this Johnny Sins? Or is it the guy who reacts to Hip Hop sometimes with his other white friend? I’m a little on the clouds🙂

  • Look at Wyatt’s TH-vision view count, he doesn’t have great views compared to other stars he is not that popular

  • I’m sorry, but wwe screwed bray over for NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE TIMES. Wwe screwed him over with husky Harris character, (Bray had to come up with his bray Wyatt gimmick to save himself). Wwe screwed him over by burying bray Wyatt (he had to save himself AGAIN by creating the fiend) and now he gets screwed over AGAIN. HOW WWE, HOW DO U KEEP MESSING UP WITH THESE KINDS OF AWESOME TALENTSSSS. THE FIEND COULD’VE REBORN THE ATTITUDE ERA, HE COULDVE EVEN CREATED A NEW ERA. WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THIS TALENT? YOU FIRE HIM??! wwe has reached rock bottom

  • They ruined him when he lost to Goldberg then he won the universal championship back and then lost it to Roman Reigns and ruined him again they put him in a feud with Randy Orton and but Alexa Bliss in the mix and she stole his character and is still using it till this day and they made him lose to Randy Orton but if returned he could’ve challenged Bobby lashley and win the wwe championship and channel ve Roman at survivor series in a champion vs champion match

  • when it comes to roman they will agree with everything he wants but not with fiend character? pathetic wwe

  • Same thing with Roman! No one in this Era, can stay the same. Wwe HAS to keep changing because no one is interested in the top stars this era

  • Vince is out of his mind. He systematically destroys his own company. How could he release one of, if not THE most interesting guy on roster? I'm sure the AEW officials can't stop laughing anymore. 😆

  • The Mcmahons are seriously out of touch with what fans want. Wyatt needs to go to any place else. I suggest he be called Blackjack Windham.

  • If Tony Kalm was a good business man he would release some of he's really crappy wresters and he has a lot of them and hire Bray and some other top notch WWE stars that Vince released. And he will make AEW a lot better and easier to watch.

  • I really think Vince is doing this because of two things. He's releasing wrestlers in mass Quantities. 1 Vince's mental state 2 Vince is preparing to sell the company. He using budget cuts as an excuse. He does want to have so many wrestlers on he's roster when the news finally goes down.

  • so what does this do with alexa's fiend-derived character?

  • I'm not against WWE guys going to AEW, I am against WWE guys taking over without being properly built as a new character. Bray would do great anywhere

  • This just goes to show how little faith they have in their current roster. They let release Bray Wyatt (one of the best, most creative talents in the business) due to "budget cuts", while at the same time shelling out not one but two fortunes to bring in Cena and Goldberg to challenge both champs at the same pay-per-view. This is how you shoot yourself in the foot while helping your competition. I just wish AEW had better viewing options.

  • Welp, another one who won't be in WWE 2K22 then... Vince knows very well that Bray will be going to AEW once the 90 days ends, so there's no doubt the WWE already sent 2K the memo to remove him from the game. Meaning the only game where we can play as The Fiend is WWE 2K20, which nobody wants to do, and let's not forget he's a DLC so gotta pay more money to get him as he's not even in the base game. Now that's disappointing.

  • WWE company will become a beggar one day..Not because of paucity of money but because of paucity of talented wrestlers..WWE made a big mistake by leaving too many good wrestlers..😔😔

    • Never seen WWE release wrestlers, especially top cards like this. perhaps WWE is realy shutting down. Vince and others may have investments in AEW

  • Is the fiend his own property then or does Vince own the rights ?

    Glenn JonesGlenn Jonesหลายเดือนก่อน
  • Its a shame and a big waste for wwe to release him after a good story line for him from wyatt family and the fiend... funny when they say budget cut but bringing Cena a big budget wrestler back to wwe.. its not his time or prime anymore.. give it to newfaces... let Roman and other wrestlers rule the entertainment for fans.. no body need Cena to come back as 16 nor 17 wwe champion..

    • he was the only character i gave a shit about in WWE. What a joke

  • I was seriously going back to watching wrestling again because I heard of Bray Wyatt. Next thing I know hes canned. These shinanigans are why I stopped investing!! 🤯 I'm still going to watch because I would hate to miss the opportunity to see the next great talent. I hope Bray finds some other venture. Happy to support him ☺️

  • Another nail in the WWE coffin. They put actual talent on the backburner in order to bring back old legends and feed them to Roman or Brock. The product is TERRIBLE!! I'm hoping he goes to AEW and they keep gaining momentum.
