Why Talks Fell Through Between Bray Wyatt And Other Promotions

Bray Wyatt

It has been revealed in a new report why talks between Bray Wyatt and multiple professional wrestling promotions broke down before he ultimately returned to WWE.

Last Saturday, Wyatt made his comeback to the company at their Premium Live Event, Extreme Rules, after the promotion sent fans into a “White Rabbit” mystery for weeks. Before “The Fiend” made his return, several promotions reportedly made contact with and sent feelers to Bray Wyatt after the Vince McMahon regime released him to due to claimed budget cuts. According to Sports Illustrated, the promos of AEW, IMPACT Wrestling and AAA all attempted to bring Wyatt in, but no contracts ever came close to being signed.

Dave Meltzer took to his Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently, reporting that the reason why talks fell apart between Bray Wyatt and all of the promotions involved is because they were all far away from Wyatt’s high price tag.

“There was interest from AEW, AAA, and Impact, but none came to fruition, in at least two if not all of the cases because the sides were far apart on money.”

When Triple H took over WWE creative, it was reportedly easier for the company and Wyatt to cut a deal.
