Distinguished WWE icon Bray Wyatt, renowned for his unparalleled

creative ingenuity in the realm of professional wrestling

where he fearlessly pushed the boundaries through pioneering personas,

passed away on Thursday at the age of 36.

The solemn announcement was conveyed by WWE's Chief Content Officer,

Paul "Triple H" Levesque, via social media platforms.

Operating under his birth name Windham Rotunda,

Wyatt had been on a hiatus from WWE for the past few months due to undisclosed health issues.

With a WWE journey that commenced in 2009, save for an unexpected release spanning

slightly over a year in 2021 and 2022, Rotunda marked his homecoming to WWE this past September.
