WWE Fraternity Reacts On Bray Wyatt’s Death: Triple H, The Rock, Big E And Others Pay Tribute

10 months ago By Jhon Woug

Some losses in life cannot be recovered or compensated for. The wrestling world is reeling from the heartbreaking news of the passing of Windham Rotunda, better known by his ring name, Bray Wyatt. At just 36 years old, the charismatic and enigmatic superstar’s untimely demise has left fans, colleagues, and the entire industry in shock and mourning. Wyatt’s remarkable journey, from his roots in wrestling’s third generation to his unforgettable character work, has left an indelible mark on the hearts of fans around the world. Messages from former WWE Superstars have been pouring in ever since the news broke out.

Bray Wyatt’s potential return was highly anticipated, with fans awaiting his much-anticipated comeback by the end of the year. However, his battle with heart issues stemming from a COVID-19 infection took a tragic turn, culminating in a fatal heart attack. The wrestling community was last treated to his presence in a lights-out match against LA Knight at this year’s Royal Rumble, a performance that showcased his unwavering commitment to the craft he loved. News of his passing was confirmed by Sean Ross Sapp, who shared the sombre update via X, formerly known as Twitter.

Wyatt’s wrestling journey began in 2009, and his legacy has been etched into the annals of WWE history. The son of I.R.S., Windham Rotunda, started his career in WWE’s developmental territory, FCW (Florida Championship Wrestling). Initially known as Duke Rotundo, he joined forces with his real-life brother Bo Dallas to become FCW Tag Team Champions. The transformation into Husky Harris came when he debuted on NXT, initially under the guidance of his mentor, Cody Rhodes. Harris was part of pivotal factions like Nexus and The New Nexus, although his early career did not see the success that would later define him.

However, it was his rebranding as Bray Wyatt that truly skyrocketed his career. Embracing the role of a menacing cult leader, Wyatt became an integral part of WWE’s landscape. The Wyatt family, under his leadership, struck fear into the hearts of both NXT and main roster competitors. Victories against high-profile opponents, including John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and Kane, solidified his status as a force to be reckoned with. Wyatt’s career reached a zenith when he captured the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber 2017, a testament to his talent and dedication.

Wyatt’s career was punctuated by his transformation into “The Fiend,” an eerie and terrifying character that captivated audiences worldwide. The Fiend’s dominance led to two WWE Universal Championship reigns and a unique showdown against John Cena at WrestleMania. Wyatt’s ability to immerse himself in his characters garnered him respect from peers and fans alike, setting him apart as a truly special performer.

Beyond his achievements in the ring, Bray Wyatt was adored by his colleagues. Tributes and condolences poured in from wrestling luminaries such as Triple H, The Rock, Alexa Bliss, Braun Strowman, The Miz, and LA Knight. The outpouring of grief highlighted the profound impact Wyatt had on those he worked with, showcasing his creativity, professionalism, and genuine nature.

As the wrestling community grieves this devastating loss, Wyatt’s memory lives on as a captivating icon who embodied the essence of sports entertainment. His dedication, versatility, and unwavering commitment to his craft have left an indelible mark on the industry. While his time on this earth was tragically cut short, Bray Wyatt’s legacy will continue to shine brightly, reminding us all of the magic he brought to the squared circle. As the wrestling world unites in remembrance, the legacy of Bray Wyatt, “The Fiend,” and all the characters he portrayed will forever remain etched in the hearts of fans and colleagues alike. Rest in peace, Bray Wyatt. The WWE Universe will always remember you as someone who touched the Undertaker’s level, and had he stayed around longer, who knows?
