Alexa Bliss has taken to Twitter to comment on the shock release of her one-time on-screen partner Bray Wyatt.
Bliss and Wyatt first became aligned in the summer of 2020, after Bliss was attacked by Wyatt’s alter-ego ‘The Fiend.’ While Bliss’ tag team partner Nikki Cross tried to keep her from Wyatt’s clutches, she eventually fell completely under his spell. Bliss used his ‘Sister Abigail’ finishing move in matches and was by his side during his feud with Randy Orton.
As Orton beat The Fiend at WrestleMania 37, Bliss and Wyatt appeared to go their separate ways. Bliss distracted Wyatt during the match before saying on RAW the following night that she no longer needed The Fiend. On the same episode, Wyatt said in a FireFly Funhouse segment that he needed a fresh start. This was to be Wyatt’s final appearance on WWE television.
Writing on Twitter after the news of Wyatt’s release broke, Bliss paid tribute to an “amazing talent” thanking him for everything he did for WWE.
“I really am at a loss for words… thank you so much Windham for everything you’ve done for this company. The most fun I’ve had is working with you. Such an amazing talent & the most kind person. I’m just in shock.”
During his time in WWE, Bray Wyatt became a two-time Universal Champion as well as lifting the WWE Championship. The demonic cult leader also captured tag team gold on two occasions.
Bray Wyatt originally signed with WWE back in 2009, debuting on the main roster as Husky Harris the following year. However, it wasn’t until a stint in NXT in 2012 that Wyatt emerged as his most famous character.
