More details have emerged regarding the death of Windham Rotunda, best known as Bray Wyatt in WWE.
According to police records obtained by TMZ, Rotunda had experienced heart complications in the weeks prior to his death. His family members told police that he had COVID back in March and developed heart complications, causing him to have a “weak lower part of his heart”. He was hospitalized one week prior to his death due to a heart issue, and had a follow-up appointment with his doctor the morning that he died.
Rotunda told his fiancee (former WWE ring announcer Josanne Offerman) that he was going to take a nap on Thursday, the day of his death, according to the police report. Offerman became concerned when his alarm went off an hour later without stopping. Rotunda was then discovered in his bed not breathing and was turning blue. Offerman called 911 as her mother attempted CPR, but Rotunda was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The report also said that Rotunda was advised by doctors to wear an external heart defibrillator, a device that is designed to treat people who experience sudden cardiac arrest. The defibrillator was later found inside Rotunda’s vehicle parked in the driveway.
Following Rotunda’s passing, WWE held tributes both on Friday’s SmackDown and Monday’s Raw. Other promotions including Impact, AEW, and NWA also paid tribute.
