WWE Rumors: The actual reason behind the splitting of the Wyatt Family
It's rumored that Bray was actually punished
One of the biggest surprises coming out of the WWE Draft on the debut of Smackdown Live was the breakup of the Wyatt Family. The Black Sheep of the family, Braun Strowman was picked by Raw, while Bray Wyatt and Eric Rowan were drafted to SmackDown.
While at first it was seen as a move to push Bray as a singles competitor, now it looks like that it was more of a punishment for the Eater of Worlds.
Cagesideseats.com reports that WWE officials are unhappy with the twitter fight Bray had with former WWE star Matt Hardy over the compound segment aired on Raw.
Due to this, Bray was picked up during the third round of the drafts instead of being chosen earlier. It's also said to be the reason behind Strowman – the “muscle” of the Wyatt Family – going to Raw.
It's notable here that Bray was not the only one who was said to be punished by the officials as Cesaro who was picked up during the last televised round of the drafts was said to be demoted due to an interview he gave before the show calling Raw the “bad guy show”.
