Alexa Bliss Reacts To Bray Wyatt’s Death

Alexa Bliss Bray Wyatt WWE

Few people have been as closely related to Bray Wyatt as Alexa Bliss.

During the Thunderdome era of WWE programming, Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss enjoyed an interesting storyline partnership. Wyatt, under his Fiend guise, went after Bliss several times until Bliss eventually joined Wyatt and in some cases fought at his side.

Bliss embraced a supernatural gimmick not unlike Wyatt’s, and the two wrestlers remained close up until Wyatt’s release from WWE in 2021.

It is clear that their time together brought them closer, since Alexa Bliss, tweeted a heartfelt response to the news of Bray Wyatt’s passing.

“I’m just in shock. Extremely heart broken And at a loss for words. What I can say is what an amazing human being Windham is. An Amazing & kind friend. one of the most creative minds to ever walk this earth. Windham, you’ve brought so much joy and happiness to everyone around you. It’s going to take me some time to really process this. Sending my love to the Rotunda Family, Jojo & their babies. We love you Windham”

What did Bray Wyatt accomplish in WWE?

Bray Wyatt’s WWE career spanned over a decade. He first entered WWE in 2009 under the name Husky Harris and was once part of the New Nexus stable after the original Nexus stable fell apart.

After floating aimlessly for a few years, Windham Rotunda grew out his beard, started wearing a fedora and Hawaiian shirts, and rechristened himself Bray Wyatt. Inspired by Waylon Mercy, Wyatt’s original character was an enigmatic and well-spoken cult leader who had a unique way with words and spoke in an esoteric manner.

Wyatt would soon be joined by Eric Rowan and the late Luke Harper as the Wyatt Family, and those three would become a staple of WWE’s main roster programming for several years.

However, Wyatt’s career was also plagued by inconsistent booking and a lack of critical wins. Despite some setbacks, Wyatt won the WWE Championship once, the Universal Championship twice, and both the RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships once each.

In more recent years, Wyatt’s gimmick took another turn as he shed the cult leader persona and became a sort of twisted kids’ TV show character with a sinister alter-ego named The Fiend. This character was the one that caused Alexa Bliss to succumb to his persuasion and led her to adopt similar bizarre mannerisms in her own character.
