WWE Star Bray Wyatt Dies ‘Unexpectedly’ at 36

WWE star Bray Wyatt has died “unexpectedly” at just 36 years old, his friends and family have announced.

Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, is known for being one of the most creative minds in professional wrestling.

WWE chief content officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque announced on social media that Wyatt died on Thursday.

Wyatt was with WWE since 2009, save for just over a year in 2021 and 2022 when he was surprisingly released.

He returned to WWE last September with much fanfare and a mysterious storyline, including cryptic vignettes, which helped boost television ratings.

“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,” Levesque wrote on Twitter.

“Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time.”

The New York Post notes that Wyatt held the WWE championship once and the promotion’s Universal championship twice.

He was also part of two tag-team championship teams.

Wyatt’s cause of death is unknown at this time.

The Post reported that Wyatt had been battling an unnamed “life-threatening illness” earlier this year.

However, he had been medically cleared to compete again just two weeks before his death.
