Bray Wyatt pulled from WWE Japan tour

Bray Wyatt in the woods, hands around his head.

WWE has made some changes to its upcoming tour of Japan, as revealed on the company website. In addition to the obvious, that Roman Reigns, who is serving a 30 day suspension for a Wellness Policy violation, is off the tour (he’s been replaced by WWE World Heavyweight Champion Dean Ambrose), Bray Wyatt is now off the tour.

At last check just over a month ago, Wyatt was penciled in to wrestle Shinsuke Nakamura in what hardcore fans were salivating over as a dream match. So much for that.

While Ambrose is replacing Reigns, no replacement has been announced for Wyatt nor was there a reason given for his missing the tour, which spans two shows on July 1 and July 2 in Tokyo.

We’ll just have to continue waiting for Nakamura to finish up his run in NXT — whenever that may be — to get to all the juicy match-ups awaiting him on the WWE main roster.
