Seth Rollins shared an emotional message about the death of his late friend Bray Wyatt after spending many years together in WWE.

The careers of the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins and the late former WWE & Universal Champion Bray Wyatt will forever be linked.

They are around the same age (Seth is 37, Bray was 36) and while they took different paths to get there, they both started in WWE around the same time with Bray getting there first in 2009 while Seth was there in 2010.

Seth Rollins got to debut on the main roster first as part of The Shield in November 2012, but Bray wasn’t too far behind in July 2013 with The Wyatt Family by his side.

In the years that followed, Seth and Bray clashed many times usually with Seth as the babyface and Bray as the heel. One of their early encounters that was very memorable was Elimination Chamber 2014 when The Wyatt Family beat The Shield in an epic encounter that fans will never forget.

There were many Seth Rollins-Bray Wyatt singles matches over the years too. Both guys were in the main event scene for the majority of their careers, so it made sense for them to clash.

Some of those matches were great while others are infamous in a bad way like a Hell in a Cell match they once had that had a very unique ending. Let’s just avoid remembering that one too much.

Seth Rollins Shares Emotional Message About Bray Wyatt

Following the shocking news of Bray Wyatt (Windham Rotunda) passing away unexpectedly at the age of 36 on Thursday, tribute comments and videos have been pouring in from the people that knew him.

On Twitter/X, Seth Rollins posted this emotional video talking about his friend Bray, their bond and what fatherhood meant to them. This was posted a few hours before Smackdown last night.

“Truth is, I don’t really… I still don’t really know what to say. Windham was a… unique cat. He was a simple yet deeply complex individual, and I loved him. I loved him. I loved working with him, but mostly I just loved being around him.

“He was always joyful. Just, these eyes that drew you in and a smile and a laugh and a presence that just made you happy. And… we’re all gonna miss that. I’ve been thinking mostly about his family. His kids.”

“And I wanted to, I don’t know if wanted was the right word, I thought about going to SmackDown tonight, but that would entail leaving my family a day early, and I just keep going back to the conversation I had with Windham on the phone when Brodie (Lee) passed a few years ago.

“And I just had called him to check on him, see how he was doing, and he… we talked and he was okay and I was okay and neither of us were really okay, but I just remember, we ended the conversation with ‘I love yous’ and ‘goodbyes’, and he said, I remember this very specifically, he said, ‘You just go hug on that baby girl’, talking about my daughter. So I just feel like that’s what I should be doing.”

“So, Windham, I love you man. I will miss you, we will all miss you. And I’ll see you down the road hot boy.”

Last night on WWE Smackdown, WWE paid tribute to Bray Wyatt throughout the show. Seth Rollins wasn’t there since he’s a Raw guy, so we should see him on Monday’s Raw with his own tribute to Wyatt.

As for what’s next for Rollins, he will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Title against Shinsuke Nakamura next Saturday, September 2nd at Payback.
