Bray Wyatt Is Dead At Only 36 Years Old
Windham Rotunda, also known as Bray Wyatt is dead at only 36 years old. The news was confirmed on Twitter by Triple H, who said his father, shared the news.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful stated Wyatt got COVID earlier in the year and that exacerbated a heart issues.
Things were looking up, before he suffered a heart attack today and passed away.
Truly, what awful and absolutely shocking news to hear. He returned to WWE just under a year ago.
He worked one match, defeating LA Knight in a Pitch Black Match at the Royal Rumble in January. The style of the match was not well received.
This marked Wyatt’s second stint in WWE and he did not return without help. Uncle Howdy was there, but fans never saw the end of that angle.
Wyatt was set to take on Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 39 and they had a program that lasted a few weeks. Then, Wyatt disappeared from TV and his absence was eventually addressed as a medical issue.
Recently, there were reports how Wyatt was getting close to a return and backstage. In fact, a video posted maybe a week ago showed him quickly signing an autograph for a fan.
Rotunda’s WWE run began in 2010 as part of NXT. Going as Husky Harris when NXT was more of a game show, and then he later joined The Nexus.
It did not last and WWE sent him back to the developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, in 2011. There, he used the cult leader gimmick.
He formed the Wyatt Family, alongside Erick Rowan and the late Luke Harper. His WWE career saw Wyatt win tag gold twice, WWE Championship and WWE Universal Championship.
Sadly, since Bray Wyatt is dead, we will never what a star he could have become. He is survived by his ex-wife and their two children. Also, at the time of his of his passing, he was engaged to former WWE name, JoJo, and they have a daughter and son together.
