The pro wrestling world was struck by the devastating news of Bray Wyatt’s sudden passing at the age of 36. The loss of the former Universal Champion has left the wrestling community in mourning, prompting an outpouring of touching tributes in honor of his memory.
During this week’s episode of SmackDown, WWE paid tribute to Bray Wyatt with moving video package that celebrated his remarkable life and illustrious career. Some of his coworkers also got tattoos to honor him.
On Sportskeeda’s “Writing with Russo,” the former writer shared insights into how Bray Wyatt deeply embraced the darker aspects of his on-screen personas, allowing him to portray his characters with remarkable authenticity. Russo then went on to say that Bray Wyatt revealed his depression to him in the DMs.
“But with that, the dark place Bray Wyatt had the pull this character from, there had to be some darkness there. There had to be something within him. I did get to exchange a couple of DMs with him. I know there was depression, I know he was dealing with a lot of emotional issues, and I would read and hear things about him.”
“So occasionally, I would drop a DM to lift this guy’s spirits up, telling him just how incredibly talented he was and everything is gonna be okay. But for him to channel these characters and the evil in these characters, I’m sure bro there were demons deep inside.”
Bray Wyatt’s passing is still incredibly sad, and he was also a very complex man. All of that made up the creative genius he was, and he was beloved for it. Hopefully, his memory will never fade and WWE continues their tributes for him, because they should really never stop.
Vince Russo claims that he had conversations with Bray Wyatt in the DMs, and he got to know the real Windham Rotunda. Sadly, Wyatt’s career was cut short when there were so many stories left to be told.
