About Bray Wyatt
Bray Wyatt officially joined WWE in 2009. He comes from a long line of wrestlers, including his father Mike Rotunda, grandfather Blackjack Mulligan, and younger brother Bo Dallas. Under the ring name Husky Harris, he joined the main roster in 2010, however he eventually quit. In order to lead the Wyatt Family, he returned in 2013. In August 2018, he took a brief vacation before returning the following year as The Fiend, a more sinister version of Wyatt.
He won three world championships while he was a member of the WWE, including one for the WWE Championship and two for the Universal Championship.
Wyatt, a three-time champion in the WWE, re-signed with the organisation last year and will make a big comeback at WWE Extreme Rules on October 8, 2022. Wyatt was in the middle of a programme about a shady character named “Uncle Howdy” when he was covertly dropped off WWE programming in late February due to injury rumours.
Mike Rotunda, the father of Windham, formerly competed as Irwin R. Schyster (IRS) in the WWE. He was most well-known for his friendship with Ted DiBiase. Taylor Michael Rotunda, Windham’s younger brother, also competed as Bo Dallas for WWE. Taylor is said to have associated with the campaign and to have collaborated with his brother while disguising himself as “Uncle Howdy”.
Not only in the WWE, but throughout all of professional wrestling, Rotunda pushed the envelope for contemporary character representations.
“Our WWE family member for life Windham Rotunda — also known as Bray Wyatt — unexpectedly passed away earlier today,” tweeted Levesque, better known to fans as Hall of Famer superstar Triple H. “Just received a call from WWE Hall of Famer Mike Rotunda who informed us of the tragic news that Windham Rotunda — also known as Bray Wyatt — passed away earlier today.” “Our thoughts are with his family, and we ask that everyone respect their right to privacy at this time.”
Tributes from fans and Colleagues
On Thursday night, tributes from wrestling fans and peers flooded social media. Also paying respect to Wyatt on social media, Dwayne Johnson wrote, “I’m heartbroken over the news of Bray Wyatt’s demise. He and the Rotunda family have my undying respect and love. I enjoyed his presence, promotions, in-ring performance, and connection to the @wwe universe. Character that is very uncommon, cool, and difficult to produce in the wild world of professional wrestling.
“Still processing losing the goat, Terry Funk yesterday and now Bray today,” the actor continued. I send the Rotunda family and the Funk family my love, light, strength, and mana during this trying and tragic time. “‘Thank you for the house,’ as always.
Wyatt leaves behind two children from his current wife as well as two children from a prior union. He is also survived by his fiancée Joseann Offerman, a professional wrestler and ring announcer.
