5. “There’s politics nowadays because of the immense salaries” – AEW Talent On Bray Wyatt’s WWE Release
On an episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, current AEW Commentator Jim Ross talked about his former employer WWE recently releasing Bray Wyatt, which pretty much everyone would agree was a mistake, as The Fiend character was actually over.
Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“There’s politics nowadays because of the immense salaries. Bray Wyatt gets cut, he’s got to be making north of a million on a downside guarantee and he’s been sitting home. That’s not good management.
I’m not saying the guy should’ve been cut, he should’ve been used if you’re going to pay him that kind of cash.
How that happened is a story for another day because I don’t know the details. I do know they got rid of a very talented kid and I’m sure he won’t have any issues finding work, speaking of Bray Wyatt.”
