Bray Wyatt (Windham Rotunda) has millions of reasons to stay home and not return to wrestling right now.
Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Wyatt was making somewhere around $4 million dollars when he was cut by WWE last July, putting him among the third or fourth highest-paid performers in the company. Meltzer also noted that Wyatt was a top merchandise seller. In 2019, he was the top merch seller in the company and was near the top of the charts for the last few years. Meltzer noted that a number of companies expressed interest in signing him but they were far apart on money.
Someone who knows Rotunda told WrestlingNews.co that he is smart with his money so he could sit at home and never return to wrestling if he wanted because he is financially secure. The source said, “He is very good with his money. I wouldn’t be surprised if he never came back [to wrestling].”
Last month, Wyatt stated on Instagram that his health is great and that he missed wrestling but he did not say when he would return to the ring.
Wyatt’s father Mike Rotunda was on John Layfield and Gerald Brisco’s podcast and said the following about his sons Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas: “They’re definitely not maybe done. I don’t know, they’re kind of got their foot in and going with a couple different things, trying to see what’s available. So, you know, maybe you’ll see them back. Maybe you won’t, I don’t know yet, but I don’t want to speak for them either because I know they’re trying to reach out and get some different things going.”
Wyatt got engaged last week to former WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman and they have two children together. The last time Wyatt was seen on television was on the night after last year’s WrestleMania. There were plans for him to return last August but it was then decided to release him from his contract.
