eWrestlingNews.com has an exclusive update on Bray Wyatt’s status with WWE, which appears to be a bit more than the previously reported “physical” issues other outlets have reported on.
According to a source close to the situation, Wyatt has been going through what is being described to us as a “mental break.”
We do know that Bray had battled a case of COVID-19 and the belief is that the illness either “brought on” or “coincided” with some sort of mental health issue.
Additionally, it was said that when Wyatt returned to WWE at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event on October 8, 2022, he expressed concern over simply saying the words “I’m here” as the show came to a close. There was a debate that took place between Wyatt and several writers at the time regarding whether he should say more. During the post-WWE Extreme Rules 2022 edition of RAW, Wyatt appeared in front of live fans for the first time since his WWE release in July 2021.
Due to the sensitive nature of the matter, WWE officials are giving Bray as much time as he needs. One source added that Wyatt seemed a bit “out of it” when spoken to over the past few months. We also know that he wasn’t happy with the creative plans for his character as time went on.
As of this writing, there is no timetable for Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE.
All of us here on eWn send our best wishes to Bray Wyatt.
