WWE Star Bray Wyatt Dies Aged 36

WWE champion Bray Wyatt has died at the age of thirty-six years old, it has been announced.

The star was hugely successful in his career, having been a 3-time world champion, winning the WWE Championship once and the Universal Championship twice.

Wyatt’s real name was Windham Rotunda, and he came from a family of wrestlers, with his grandfather being Blackjack Mulligan, his father Mike Rotunda and brother Bo Dallas.

The wrestler had been absent from the ring since February as he dealt with undisclosed health issues, but his family characterised his passing as unexpected.

WWE content officer Triple H was the first to announce the news.

“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,” he wrote on Twitter, now X. “Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time.”

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson paid his respects in a post on Twitter.

“I’m heartbroken over the news of Bray Wyatt’s passing,” he began. “Always had tremendous respect and love for him and the Rotunda family. Loved his presence, promos, in ring work and connection with WWE universe.

“Very unique, cool and rare character, which is hard to create in our crazy world of pro wrestling. Still processing losing the goat, Terry Funk yesterday and now Bray today.

“My love, light, strength & mana to the Rotunda family and Funk family during this tough, heartbreaking time.”
