Bray Wyatt

One WWE Hall of Famer has revealed when Bray Wyatt was due to return to WWE television.

Bray Wyatt – the real-life Windham Rotunda – tragically passed away at the age of just 36 following a heart attack on August 24th. The wrestling world was united in grief for the star who had only returned to WWE in October 2022.

Wyatt competed in just one televised match after returning, that being his Pitch Black bout with LA Knight at the 2023 Royal Rumble and a planned bout with Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 39 was pulled from the show. The former WWE Champion had not been seen on WWE television since February amid suggestions he was battling undisclosed health issues.

Speaking on Everybody’s Got A Pod, WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase discussed the sad loss of Wyatt and indicated that the star would have been set for a return to WWE in September:

“Windham was a great kid, he really was. They were just getting ready to go back, they were supposed to start again in September and start up something new. Now he’s gone.”

DiBiase added that he had flown in for Wyatt’s funeral although he never got to meet with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon there:

“I got on a plane, I flew to Tampa, and I went to his funeral. It was sad, it really was. I talked to Mike [Rotunda] briefly, obviously, he was happy I was there, Shane McMahon was there, somebody told me that they saw Stephanie and Triple H and you know, I was like, I don’t know how I would have missed that. I guess anything was possible.”

Bray Wyatt’s fiancée, former WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman, recently paid her own emotional public tribute to the late star.
