New details are emerging in the untimely death of WWE star Bray Wyatt.
According to a report from TMZ, Wyatt, real name Windham Rotunda, was taking a nap when he had a fatal heart attack but wasn’t wearing his doctor recommended defibrillator. The report states that Wyatt was hospitalized a week before due to his heart issues and was given an external heart defibrillator, which can treat sudden cardiac arrest.
Wyatt had developed a weaker lower heart following a bout with COVID earlier this year, which kept him out of a WWE ring. Wyatt had a known heart issue before his illness but was exacerbated in this time. It is unknown if the device would’ve prevented his death.
Wyatt was among the most popular professional wrestlers for the WWE. Initially debuting in 2010 as Husky Harris, he returned 3 years later as a cult leader Bray Wyatt with the Wyatt Family stable, where his charisma and mic skills made him a top star, before transitioning to the Firefly Funhouse, where his Wyatt character gained an alter ego in The Fiend.
Unfortunately, this is the second loss for the popular stable, as Brodie Lee, known in the Wyatt Family as Luke Harper, unexpectedly passed following an illness in 2020 at the age of 41. Wyatt himself was 36.
Bray Wyatt leaves a strong legacy as one of the most creative wrestlers in the history of the business. Well loved as a character and as a person, Wyatt is not only unforgettable, he’s irreplaceable.
