Several sources confirmed to the news portal that Vince McMahon was tired of dealing with Bray Wyatt, to the point of closing the doors to a possible return to WWE after his dismissal on July 31 of last year.
Although his departure was justified by health problems or budget cuts, the truth is that Vince disliked the person behind “The Fiend”. The promoter was direct with Bray Wyatt on topics such as his physique, a starting point for discussions that quickly encompassed the wrestler’s creative drive.
Wyatt’s alleged “bad attitude” was a rumor originating from names that worked directly with Vince, although others saw the move to fire him as a negative point for WWE.

Bray Wyatt has always been a defender of creative management, to the point of not shutting up before his former boss when something seemed out of place. The point of no return was WrestleMania 37 in 2021, when the conclusion of his storyline with Randy Orton changed days before his match.
The end of the fight in the great event was modified the day before its transmission. Randy Orton was supposed to be absent from the schedule after WrestleMania, but the situation was reversed against Bray Wyatt.
WWE is interested in getting Bray Wyatt back
Since his dismissal from WWE on July 31, 2021, Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt) has been in the spotlight of several fans who are eagerly awaiting his next move in wrestling. His final twelve-year contractual commitment only preceded projects outside the competition, such as recording a movie or meetings with his former teammates Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman at conventions.

Despite this, rumors related to a possible return of the three-time world champion to wrestling have grown over the past few weeks. Specifically, the Fightful Select news portal has confirmed that there is great interest among WWE’s top brass to get Bray Wyat back. As can be assumed, the new creative management led by Triple H could be the gateway for Windham in the future.
Sources behind the scenes at WWE have clarified that Triple H is much more open to bringing in talent that can positively contribute to the company creatively. The personal problems between Vince McMahon and Bray Wyatt could be left aside, and there is even the possibility that he maintains more control with the handling of his character on screen.
Several talents close to Fightful clarified that a return of “The Fiend” could be encouraging backstage, especially if Triple H allows the fighter to maintain his position towards the character.
As for Windham’s personal situation, multiple sources confirmed to Fightful that the wrestler still has an interest in working with WWE. However, they have remained discreet regarding his condition.
