In the last radio program of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer has taken up the subject of his release, and assured that in WWE it was thought that the problems that Wyatt generated, did not compensate them.
“He was fired for reasons that had nothing to do with being over or not being over, and he wasn’t fired for reasons related to his gimmick. He was fired for things he probably shouldn’t talk about, so I’m not going to open up.”
It has nothing to do with that. Plus, he also had health issues that kept him out of action and all that.” “There were discussions that he did more harm than good, even though he actually sold a lot of merchandise. They obviously held him in high esteem considering they signed him to a nearly $4 million a year contract. I think he was the third highest paid in the company.”
Throughout this year, there has been a lot of talk about Wyatt generating many conflicts with the creatives and higher-ups of the company within WWE due to disagreements regarding his character and his programming plans, but it was never discussed that there were problems with the sales of the fighter or his popularity among the fans.
