    The Grapevine (8/3/21): TV Networks Not Happy With Bray Wyatt Release, Ric Flair Asks For Release From WWE, Becky Lynch Update

    Bray Wyatt


    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    WWE's TV partners not happy about Bray Wyatt's release

    FOX and NBC Universal, WWE's TV partners in the US, are reportedly not happy about Bray Wyatt's release. The former WWE Champion was released over the weekend as a result of budget cuts, as Wyatt apparently had a huge contract. They're afraid about top stars getting released, especially after Wyatt was medically cleared to return to the ring. (Source: Andrew Zarian)

    We say: It's certainly not a good look at all and while there might be more to the story than simply "budget cuts," Vince McMahon will definitely have to do something about Nick Khan, because if this keeps up we don't know where WWE will end up, especially if the company's big moneymakers in television are scared about how the company will look—and rate on TV.

    Ric Flair released from WWE

He was last seen on TV in the feud between Charlotte Flair and Lacey Evans, which he was reportedly unhappy with. (Source: Fightful Select, Wrestling Inc)

    We say: Expect to see him in AEW soon enough, as all of his friends and peers are already there.

    Becky Lynch not returning soon

    We say: RAW really needs Becky Lynch, and fast, but it seems they're taking their sweet time with her and figuring out a way to bring her back organically.
