Former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt unfortunately passed away at the age of 36 on Thursday.
He caught COVID-19 earlier this year which exacerbated heart issues. He was recovering from it for the past several months, but unfortunately, he suffered a sudden heart attack and passed away due to it.
16-Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and one of Wyatt’s greatest rivals, John Cena, took to Twitter to comment on the heartbreaking news.
“Devastated by the news of the passing of Windham Rotunda. My heart goes out to the entire Rotunda family. Windham brought the best out of me in so many ways. I’m forever grateful for the moments we shared. A sad day for all those he reached around the world. RIP.”
Cena and Wyatt first feuded in 2014 and had their first ever match at WrestleMania 30, which Cena won. Wyatt got a win over Cena at Extreme Rules 2014 in a Steel Cage match and then their feud ended at Payback the same year when Cena defeated Wyatt in a Last Man Standing match.
At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, Cena joined forces with The Rock to fight off The Wyatt Family.
They crossed paths again in 2020 and Wyatt (this time as The Fiend) got his revenge on Cena in a Firefly Funhouse Match at WrestleMania 36.
