New Details Emerge In The Tragic Death Of Bray Wyatt

We’re learning more about the tragic death of Windham Rotunda, better known by his wrestling name, Bray Wyatt.

Last week, Rotunda suddenly passed away at the age of 36.

Rotunda had been sidelined for months due to a mysterious illness.

Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp reported that Rotunda had contracted COVID earlier this year, which exacerbated a heart condition.

In a new report, TMZ says Rotunda died in his sleep a week after being hospitalized for a heart issue. Rotunda was not wearing an external heart defibrillator that doctors had advised him to wear.


Cops spoke with Windham’s immediate family members who said he had COVID in March 2023 and developed heart complications — causing him to have a “weak lower part of his heart.”

In fact, just a week before he died, Windham was hospitalized for a heart issue. He had a follow-up appointment with doctors the morning he died and was advised to continue to wear an external heart defibrillator — a device designed to treat people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.

Though it’s not known if the device would have saved his life, investigators determined Windham was not wearing the defib at the time of his death … they later located it inside his vehicle parked in the driveway.
