Bray Wyatt was suddenly let go by WWE back in July 2021. This was after he was absent from WWE television for several months prior to his release. Wyatt’s actual WWE salary was also revealed recently.
Wyatt’s Fiend character was one of the most creative gimmicks in the company’s history. Despite that, many fans felt Wyatt was simply misused in WWE no matter what he did and that never changed till the end.
According to Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bray Wyatt was being paid in the range of $4 million a year. This made him the third or fourth highest paid talent in the company.
At the time he left the company he was believed to be the third or fourth highest paid performer on the roster with a contract in the $4 million per year range at the time he was cut and was a major merchandise draw.
Bray Wyatt also wanted a very high price to join AEW. Bray Wyatt’s father previously said that the former WWE Superstar is far from done with pro wrestling as well. We’ll have to see where Wyatt will end up next.
