Bray Wyatt passed away last year and fans were expecting WWE to induct him into the Hall of Fame this year, but it’s not happening.

Instead of Wyatt, his father Mike Rotunda (aka IRS) will get inducted as part of The U.S. Express, along with Barry Windham.

During an interview with SK Wrestling, Rotunda explained why WWE isn’t inducting Wyatt into the Hall of Fame this year:

“With Windham passing, I thought they were gonna immediately put Windham into the Hall of Fame, which he will be in at some point.

I think WWE reassessed stuff and thought it was too soon to go there with our family and the reactions and the stress on us. We got a call from WWE and [they] said Hunter wants to do a Zoom call.

We were thinking they were gonna tell us what was gonna happen at WrestleMania and Hunter said, ‘You guys are gonna get inducted. You and Barry were a part of the first (WrestleMania) show.

It’s very flattering obviously and actually less stressful on us because of all the stuff that we had to go through with Windham passing, just the mental capacity of it.”

To honor Windham, WWE is releasing “Bray Wyatt: Immortal” documentary on Peacock / WWE Network on April 1st.

Regarding his own Hall of Fame induction along with Barry, Rotunda said:

“Obviously, it’s a great honor because you’re getting rewarded for what you spent 40 years doing.”
