Bray Wyatt’s cause of death has been revealed following word of the WWE superstar’s passing.
Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday evening, sending shockwaves through the wrestling world.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has since divulged that Wyatt’s demise was the result of a heart attack as he had been dealing with cardiovascular issues that became worse when he got COVID-19 earlier this year.
Sapp noted that he was given permission to reveal said details by Rotunda’s family as they wanted clarification put out there.
Rotunda’s death was initially communicated by Paul Levesque A.K.A Triple H, WWE’s Chief Content Officer, who was informed by Rotunda’s father Mike. The senior Rotunda went by the name Irwin R. Schyster as a ring performer and is a WWE Hall of Famer.
Windham, who was 36, had been away from WWE since appearing in a pre-recorded episode of ‘Monday Night Raw’ on February 27, with his last match coming a day prior
Reports noted he was dealing with an illness, though the specifics were unknown.
His father recently told fans he was going to return to WWE “hopefully shortly” as his condition had improved, which makes this latest development all the more surprising.
Our hearts go out to Windham’s family and loved ones.
