Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt passed away at the young age of 36 after suffering a heart attack.
During the latest episode of his Talk Is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho remembered his friend and old WWE opponent.
Below is what Jericho said about Wyatt:
“Obviously, I worked with Bray dozens of times throughout the years in WWE around the world. We even had cage match where I jumped off the top of a cage, I think at the crazy age of 44 years old and how insane it was that Jericho’s up there doing it.
I’d do it now at 52, especially with someone like Bray, who I could trust.
Bray was a creative faucet, so many ideas that he had and he would just keep pouring them out.
‘Here’s an idea, here’s an idea,’ Stop, stop, stop, what about that idea from a couple of ideas ago?’ Just a great guy and left us way too soon.
Like I said, it hit me on the plane ride, I got really sad during the plane ride. because you take off, and it’s another flight, another day at the office and then it really hits you, like oh my gosh, he’s really gone. We will never get to see him again.”
Last month, Jericho wrote the following about Wyatt on Instagram:
“From the moment I first met Windham Rotunda, I knew he was special. A true visionary, his unique ideas spilled from a never-ending creative stream that ran through his brain constantly.
We worked each other all over the world and I literally trusted him with my life many times. I always enjoyed talking with him as he was always a step ahead of most.
And I enjoyed trying to guess where his stories were going before his big reveals. Thanks big man, for always keeping me safe in the ring… and for being my friend outside of it.”
At WWE SummerSlam 2014, Wyatt defeated Jericho.
