It is being reported by Fightful Select that writer Nick Manfredini left WWE earlier this year. Manfredini first started with the company in 2010 was said to have been “was heavily influential in the creation and creative” of Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse segments.
Fightful also noted that “we have not learned of Manfedini left of his own volition or was let go.” Manfredini was reportedly known as “a guy within WWE who would often downplay credit on himself, but was often put over by Bray Wyatt himself to people backstage.” It is believed that Manfredini’s departure took place before Wyatt disappeared from television due to a reported “physical issue.”
