The legacy of Bray Wyatt will live on forever as WWE announces the Bray Wyatt Legacy Collection of merchandise.
It was on August 24th, 2023 when the news of a tragedy struck the world of pro wrestling when the family of Bray Wyatt (Windham Rotunda) passed away at the age of 36.
Wyatt was signed by WWE in 2009 at the age of 23 and while it took a few years for him to go from Husky Harris before he became Bray Wyatt, once he hit his stride, there was no stopping him.
The leader of The Wyatt Family was a main event performer who held the WWE Championship once in 2017 and he was a two-time Universal Champion as well while also portraying a diabolical character known as The Fiend.
To celebrate the career of the future Hall of Famer, WWE launched the Bray Wyatt Legacy Collection, which is available on WWEShop now.

Mike Rotunda Is Grateful That WWE Is Keeping The Bray Wyatt Legacy Alive
Bray Wyatt was a third-generation wrestler that is the grandson of Blackjack Mulligan and the son of Mike Rotunda, who WWE fans knew as Irwin R. Schyster (IRS). While speaking to Forbes, Rotunda explained why it’s awesome to see WWE supporting Bray and his family.
“I go do some autograph signings here and there and I’ve had so many people come up to my table supporting Windham with firefly shirts and guys with tattoos on their arms.”
“It’s pretty cool. This is helpful, what WWE is doing to keep that spirit alive among the WWE Universe which will in turn keep Windham’s characters alive in their minds. It’s awesome what they’re doing.”
Mike Rotunda went on to talk about why it’s so important for Bray’s two youngest children who will grow up without their father.
“Especially for Knash and Hyrie, this is important. Kendyl and Cadyn know who their dad is because they’re a little older, but you don’t remember everything when you’re 3 or 4 years old. With the stuff WWE is putting out there, they’ll be able to look back and see exactly who their dad was.”
“It’s awesome that they’re going to get a chance to relive some of their moments that their dad did.”
Following his death, WWE celebrated the life and legacy of Bray Wyatt on the August 25th episode of Smackdown, along with Terry Funk, who also passed away that same week.
