AEW reportedly had plans to signal aged WWE Megastar Bray Wyatt old to things apparently fell by.
In step with Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t WrestlingInc.com’s Joshua Gagnon), there was as soon as “positively a view in hassle at one point” for AEW to raise Wyatt into the fold.
Meltzer added that Affect Wrestling confirmed interest in Wyatt at at some stage within the identical time, and it is now unclear the put Wyatt will plod subsequent and when he’ll beget that call.
One motive of the prolong is Wyatt’s focal point on a film project in Tennessee this month, per Meltzer.
WWE shockingly launched the 34-year-frail Wyatt on July 31 after 12 years within the firm and 9 years on the most critical roster.
Wyatt was as soon as one in all WWE’s top stars for the length of his drag, a success the Universal Championship twice and WWE Championship as soon as to boot to holding both the Uncooked and SmackDown Designate Crew Championships.
He was as soon as considered as one in all the precise in all of official wrestling by methodology of mic work and developing his persona, as he underwent several evolutions for the length of his WWE stint.
Before getting launched, Wyatt had applied the vastly current Fiend persona as an depraved alter ego to his Firefly FunHouse gimmick.
On condition that AEW has been signing many high-profile WWE Superstars recently and has a pay-per-survey Saturday evening within the plan of Tubby Instruments, it was as soon as widely assumed Wyatt would beget his debut for the firm on the demonstrate.
AEW President Tony Khan denied having spoken to Wyatt—whose precise establish is Windham Rotunda—about signing with the firm while addressing the media Thursday, announcing:
“I love Windham plenty. We’ll study about what occurs, you know, I catch not talked to him about it ever, about him coming to AEW. The closing time I seen Windham was as soon as at Chris Jericho’s birthday social gathering. It was as soon as a stunning unhurried evening, and it was as soon as closing year. So, it be a of direction varied world. I perfect temporarily seen him in passing—I was as soon as heading out while he was as soon as heading in. It was as soon as a stunning unhurried evening, but I assume he is a fine person and a of direction sizable talent.”
Given Khan’s comments and Meltzer’s document, all indicators point toward Wyatt no longer making an appearance at Tubby Instruments on Saturday evening.
Wyatt is free to signal and appear wherever at any time now that his 90-day non-compete clause with WWE has expired, but it no doubt appears love his followers would possibly maybe be left to marvel the put and when he’ll resurface for no longer no longer up to a limited little bit of while longer.
