Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt Passes Away at 36

Sadly, Bray Wyatt has passed away at the age of 36. He was a well-known figure in the WWE and was known for his creative personality in the world of professional wrestling. Paul “Triple H” Levesque, the chief content officer for WWE, announced his passing on social media.

Due to unreported health issues, Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, had been absent from WWE for a while. Except for a brief spell between 2021 and 2022 when he was surprisingly discharged, he has been connected to WWE since 2009. In September of the previous year, Rotunda returned to WWE, sparking interest with a suspenseful plot and intriguing sequences that helped increase television viewing.

“Our beloved WWE family member, Windham Rotunda, also known as Bray Wyatt, unexpectedly passed away,” said Levesque. “We were notified by WWE Hall of Famer Mike Rotunda. We sincerely ask everyone to respect his family’s privacy at this trying time as our thoughts are with them.

Rotunda was descended from a wrestling family. Mike Schyster, his father, became well-known in the WWE as Irwin R. Schyster and in other promotions using various names. Barry Windham, Rotunda’s uncle, and his brother Taylor both participated in WWE matches as Bo Dallas in the 1980s and early 1990s. JoJo Offer man, a former WWE ring announcer, was married to Windham Rotunda, and the two had two kids together. Two more children from a prior marriage were born to Rotunda. Throughout his career, he held the esteemed titles of WWE Universal Champion and WWE Champion.

After first serving as Husky Harris in WWE’s developmental division, Rotunda took on the identity of Bray Wyatt, a mysterious cult leader with a seductively sinister aura. He rose to fame in WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, along with his Wyatt Family allies, until making a triumphant return to the main roster in 2014.

Rotunda returned to WWE last year after being discharged in 2021 and briefly resurfaced as the former Bray Wyatt. He played a figure that was battling old demons like Uncle Howdy and The Fiend. But because of health issues, Rotunda disappeared from television in February.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson expressed his thoughts by saying, “I always held immense admiration and care for him and the Rotunda family. He made an impression on me with his charisma, in-ring abilities, promotional style, and ability to connect with the WWE crowd. It took a lot of work to create a presence as distinctive, composed, and unconventional as his in the cutthroat world of professional wrestling.
