Bray Wyatt has been released by WWE, the company confirmed earlier today.
The news was first broken by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful who noted that Wyatt was gone from the company after WWE posted a now-deleted statement on Twitter. A second statement was issued shortly after confirming that WWE had come to terms with the release of the former Universal Champion.
‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt was last in action at WrestleMania 37 where he was defeated by Randy Orton after he was distracted by Alexa Bliss.

On the following edition of RAW, Bliss appeared saying that she no longer needed Wyatt and has made no reference to him since. On the same episode, Wyatt himself said that it was time for a new start during what is now the final Firefly Funhouse segment to be broadcast on WWE programming.
TJRWrestling will continue to update the story as it develops.
