On a recent Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer indicated that Bray Wyatt was likely headed to AEW. Wyatt is still under a non-compete with WWE so he legally could not start negotiations right.
On the Bryan and Vinny Show, Bryan Alvarez said that he heard from people in AEW who said that they were unaware that Wyatt could be headed there.
Alvarez said, “On the Wrestling Observer Radio show with Garrett, I don’t know the exact wording that Dave used but he seemed to indicate that Bray Wyatt was going to AEW. What I can tell you about this, I am not saying that Dave is wrong. He may be right and it may happen but, as soon as that show went up I started getting text messages and they were from people in AEW. It was not Tony Khan. These were people that probably should know and they were like ‘did Dave say that Bray is coming?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, I didn’t do the show, I haven’t heard it yet.’ Essentially, they were unaware of this. Again, I am not saying that Bray isn’t going or that Dave is wrong. Dave may know something that they don’t know, which would be sort of weird. But that’s the story right now.”
Alvarez continued, “What I think I can safely say is I do not believe it is a guarantee that Bray Wyatt is going to AEW. Maybe he will, maybe he won’t. To me, this is not like CM Punk where CM Punk was going to AEW and I’m like 99.9999 percent sure that Bryan Danielson is going to AEW. I would not say anything resembling that for Bray Wyatt. I’m not saying it’s not gonna happen, maybe it will but I would put it at much less than 99.9999 percent at this point.”
Alvarez said that his gut tells him that Wyatt is not going to AEW but things can change. So, at this point, Wyatt going to AEW is not a sure thing and will likely stay that way until he officially becomes a free agent after his non-compete expires.
