Bray Wyatt is on the free agent market after being released by WWE due to budget cuts.
The promotion “definitely had a plan in place at one point” for Wyatt to show up, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter. It’s not known why those plans fell through.
In a recent interview with The NY Post, AEW President Tony Khan noted that he’s more than willing to talk with Wyatt, but when the timing is right.
“Yeah. I really like Windham (Rotunda). I know him a little bit and I really enjoy him,” Khan said. “The last time I saw him was at Chris Jericho’s birthday party and that was a long time ago. I like him as a person very much and he’s a really talented person. At the right time and place, sure I’d be interested to talk to him. I’m interested to talk to him in general because he’s a great person.”
