Bray Wyatt’s passing hit the pro wrestling world in a huge way, and that loss was felt on RAW this week as well. Seth Rollins opened his promo this week on RAW with “YOWIE WOWIE!” and Becky Lynch closed out the show with tear-filled tribute. That wasn’t all, because Wyatt also found a place on the World Heavyweight Championship.
Seth Rollins paid his respects to his friend and in-ring adversary, the late Windham Rotunda, who was more widely recognized by WWE fans as Bray Wyatt. During Monday’s edition of “Raw,” Rollins unveiled a new side plate on his WWE World Heavyweight Championship as a tribute to Rotunda’s “Fiend” persona.
During the third hour of the show, Seth Rollins called out his upcoming opponent for Payback, Shinsuke Nakamura, and the side plate change was captured by WWE cameras.
In an additional nod to Bray Wyatt on the title, Rollins even uttered one of his Firefly Funhouse catchphrases, exclaiming, “YOWIE WOWIE!” when addressing the audience. Fans loved that tribute in a big way.
