We are saddened to report that former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt has passed away at the age of 36.

Below is what Triple H tweeted:

“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.”

UPDATE: Cause Of Bray Wyatt’s Death Released

Wyatt returned to WWE last year at Extreme Rules 2022 and only had one televised match, which was at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, where he defeated LA Knight in a Mountain Dew Pitch Black Match.

He was written off television due to an illness in late February. He was scheduled to face Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 39, which got canceled.

Earlier this month, Fightful Select reported that the illness Wyatt was dealing with was both career and life threatening.

According to RSN, a lot of people in WWE didn’t know what Wyatt was dealing with because of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws:

“There are HIPAA laws in place preventing the dissemination of that information, even corporately.”

WWF Legend The Rock, who had a segment with Wyatt at WrestleMania 32 in 2016, tweeted the following about this sad news:

“I’m heartbroken over the news of Bray Wyatt’s passing. Always had tremendous respect and love for him and the Rotunda family. Loved his presence, promos, in ring work and connection with WWE universe.

Very unique, cool and rare character, which is hard to create in our crazy world of pro wrestling. Still processing losing the goat, Terry Funk yesterday and now Bray today.

My love, light, strength & mana to the Rotunda family and Funk family during this tough, heartbreaking time.


We extend our deepest condolences to Wyatt’s family and friends.

RIP Bray Wyatt
