RONDA ROUSEY has slammed WWE’s ‘ungrateful idiot’ fans in a furious rant regarding Bray Wyatt’s release.
Vince McMahon’s company dropped a huge bombshell by announcing that the former world champion had been let go last week.
Wyatt had not appeared on WWE TV since an episode of Monday Night Raw the day after WrestleMania 37 in April.
Following a long-running rivalry with Randy Orton, ‘The Fiend’ lost to the veteran after Alexa Bliss turned on him.
Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer has reported that budget cuts were the reason for his release.
He is one of a number of stars to be let go over recent weeks but his has proven to be highly controversial.
During Raw, a section of fans in attendance showed their support by singing ‘We Want Wyatt’ during the show.
Now Rousey, who enjoyed an epic year-long run with WWE until 2019, has pulled no punches as she joined the debate.
The former UFC champ tweeted: “I’ve seen you same ‘fans’ chanting #WeWantWyatt last night chanting ‘We want beach balls’ over @WWEBrayWyatt performing.
“If the @wwe treated him like he was expendable it was because you ungrateful idiots did first.”
Rousey announced in April that she is currently expecting her first child.
