“Wyatt was well known within the company to move merchandise when he was an active performer, and several other long-time stars said that they don’t feel like their jobs are safe any longer, despite of their positions on the card or prior pushes.”
According to the report, nearly 20 individuals reached out about Wyatt’s sudden exit from the promotion. Wyatt himself learned of his release from John Laurinaitis through a phone call.
Wyatt won several titles during his 12 year stay in the promotion. He is a three time World Champion, having won the WWE Championship once and Universal Championship two times. Wyatt has also won both the RAW and SmackDown Tag Team titles, once each with Matt Hardy and the Wyatt Family (Randy Orton and Luke Harper) respectively.
It will be interesting to see where he turns up next after he completes his 90-day no compete clause.
