Bray Wyatt passed away at the age of 36, and that loss hit the pro wrestling community in a massive way. He left behind a loving family and a legion of fireflies, all who will miss him dearly. Now, we have a bit more information about this tragic situation.

According to a report from TMZ, Bray Wyatt passed away in his sleep. JoJo Offerman went in after his alarm did not wake him up from a nap, but he did not respond.

The report went on to say that police spoke with Bray Wyatt’s immediate family members, who said he had COVID in March 2023 and developed heart complications. This caused him to have a “weak lower part of his heart.”

The report also stated that, “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.”


While it remains uncertain whether the device could have potentially saved Bray Wyatt’s life, investigators established that Windham Rotunda wasn’t wearing the defibrillator at the time of his passing. They subsequently discovered it inside his vehicle, which was parked in the driveway.

Our thoughts are still with Bray Wyatt’s family and friends at this time. The world lost a great man when he passed away, and the pro wrestling world will continue sharing tributes of his life after his tragic passing.
