WWE fans mourn the tragic passing of Bray Wyatt at the age of 36. Known for his enigmatic presence and the acclaimed character "The Fiend," Wyatt leaves a void in the wrestling community.
The saddening announcement was made by WWE's chief content officer, Paul "Triple H" Levesque, through social media platforms. Levesque conveyed that Wyatt, also known as Windham Rotunda, unexpectedly passed away, and asked for privacy for his family during this difficult time.
Wyatt's wrestling journey began in 2010 with WWE's developmental brand NXT, where he started as Husky Harris. His evolution led to a rivalry with John Cena and later to the creation of the Wyatt Family, a cult-like faction with a unique entrance that captivated fans.
Wyatt's collaboration with Alexa Bliss and winning the Universal Championship at SummerSlam 2020 marked significant milestones. He held the title just before the current champion, Roman Reigns
After WrestleMania 37, Wyatt took a hiatus, sparking speculation about his return in 2022. His thunderous return introduced a new persona, "Uncle Howdy," and a feud with LA Knight, culminating in a gripping "Pitch Black match."
Unfortunately, the "Pitch Black match" marked Wyatt's final bout, as he departed from on-air shows due to reported injuries. Throughout his decade-long WWE tenure, he achieved WWE and WWE Universal championships and a Raw Tag Team Championship.
Wyatt's legacy extends beyond the ring. He is survived by his wife, former ring announcer JoJo, along with their two daughters and two sons, leaving a lasting impact on his family.
