Bray Wyatt returned to WWE television during Extreme Rules last year, after being released in 2021. There were a lot of things he wanted to do after returning, but that can never happen now as he has already passed away. Now it appears WWE put Wyatt on a Legends contract after his demise.
Bray Wyatt’s sudden passing at the tender age of 36 sent shockwaves through fans and the professional wrestling community. It has been several months since his passing and people continue to mourn his loss even now.
He was engaged to JoJo Offerman and had two children together. Wyatt also had two children from a previous relationship. Naturally, his family still deeply feel his absence even now.
While speaking on Wrasslin Talk, Bray Wyatt’s father Mike Rotunda talked about his son’s unfortunate demise and how everyone still misses him dearly. He also revealed that WWE put Wyatt on a Legends contract, therefore his children will still be getting the monetary help they need.
“It’s been really hard. We miss him every day. [Gets choked up]. Growing up in the business, you always book stuff during the week because you’re going to be wrestling on the weekends and TV. Windham and Jojo were supposed to get married yesterday. We miss Windham horribly, every day. Windham was the first one and we would bring him on the road at six months old. They would come with me and stay on the road, wherever I was wrestling, and it’s so hard to wake up out of this nightmare and he’s still not there. I have to give WWE credit. They’ve done awesome helping our family out with a lot of different stuff. They put Windham on a legends contract and all the proceeds go to…Windham has four children. Luckily, we have them.
He was a jolly fellow. He loved to laugh, he was loud. He was always laughing and he lit up a room. He lit up the wrestling business. People come up to me and have a story with Windham, they say he took the time to sit there and bullshit with me for ten or fifteen minutes when he’s supposed to be signing autographs. So many people come up and support him by wearing his stuff, and they have a story about him. He was that kind of person. We miss him badly.”
Bray Wyatt was also supposed to get married to JoJo Offerman earlier this month. Bray Wyatt will forever hold a cherished place in the hearts of those who knew him both inside and outside the wrestling ring and that is never changing no matter how many years go by.
