Wrestling World Reacts To The Death Of WWE’s Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt

The shocking news of Bray Wyatt’s death has rocked the world of pro wrestling and his friends in the businesses have reacted to it.

There was some tragic news shared tonight by WWE’s Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque, who posted early this evening that WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt has passed away. He was just 36 years old. Triple H shared the news in a tweet. The news came from Bray’s father Mike Rotunda.

“Just received a call from WWE Hall of Famer Mike Rotunda who informed us of the tragic news that our WWE family member for life Windham Rotunda – also known as Bray Wyatt – unexpectedly passed earlier today. Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time.”

During his WWE career that started way back in FCW in 2009 in his early 20s, the man that would become Bray Wyatt was a former WWE Champion and a two-time Universal Champion. Bray was a main eventer for a lot of his WWE career.

In the summer of 2021, WWE released Bray Wyatt, but then he returned in October 2022. Unfortunately, that return only saw Wyatt wrestle one televised match over the last year at Royal Rumble 2023 when he defeated LA Knight in a Pitch Black Match.
