Meanwhile, several professionals and wrestling fans, they criticized to the company for Bray Wyatt’s inept handling of creative ideas and for “a series of missed opportunities.”
“I think what [la WWE] I wanted to say was: “Thank you so much for inventing such an incredible character (over and over again), such a great one and that we did not know how to use it well. So we gave it to someone else so we could keep making all the money and let you go. ” public Mickie James, former WWE Women’s Champion.
Meanwhile, the writer Michael Patterson he pointed that the company “underestimated” the talent of ‘The Fiend’ “over and over again” He added that he hopes he “finds a place that really appreciates him.” “When Bray Wyatt lost to John Cena at WrestleMania XXX I knew it wouldn’t last. Every time I started to believe I could, WWE repeated the same mistakes. ‘The Fiend’ was their chance to finally get it right and they ruined it again.” underlined.
Wave of layoffs
WWE fired this year more than twenty fighters, some of whom were hired by the AEW, such as Malakai Black, Miro or Andrade ‘El Ídolo’ (known in WWE as Aleister Black, Rusev and Andrade, respectively).
The wave of layoffs and budget cuts sparked rumors that WWE President Nick Khan is preparing the company for sale. Former company writer Dave Schilling, who worked for his creative team in early 2019, he claimed on his Twitter account that superstar layoffs often happen if a company is trying to “maximize profits before a sale.”
However, it is not the first time that rumors have appeared about a possible sale of the WWE. For the moment, these speculations lack any support for confirmation.
