Bray Wyatt Death At Age 36, How Did He Die, What Happened To Him – Full Details Explained
WWE superstar Bray Wyatt has died at the age of 36 after dealing with an undisclosed ‘life-threatening illness.’
Wyatt’s death was announced in a tweet by WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H who said: ‘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.’
‘Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time.’
The three-time WWE world champion had not competed since his win over LA Knight in a Mountain Dew Pitch Black Match at the Royal Rumble back in January.
Reports had stated he was nearing a return after recently being cleared to return to the ring.
Although he had been medically cleared to wrestle again, WWE had been taking precautions to ensure his long-term health will be stable following the illness, which was believed to have been both career and life-threatening.
He leaves behind four children, two daughters with ex-wife Samantha and a son and daughter with WWE announcer Joseann “JoJo” Offerman, to whom he became engaged last year.
Alexa Bliss wrote: “Just in shock. Really at a loss for words at the moment,” and William Regal added: “Devastated to hear of the passing of Windham Rotunda, Bray Wyatt. My deepest condolences to Mike, Bo, Barry and all his family. Rest well my friend.x.”
