In a deeply sorrowful turn of events, the world of professional wrestling is mourning the loss of WWE luminary Bray Wyatt, known by his birth name Windham Rotunda, who tragically passed away at the young age of 36. Reports indicate that Wyatt succumbed to a heart attack, leaving the wrestling community and fans around the globe in shock and disbelief.
According to report, the wrestling sensation was found lifeless in his bed, with his fiancee Jojo Offerman raising the alarm when his alarm continued to sound without response. Wyatt’s girlfriend immediately dialed 911 while her mother attempted CPR in a desperate bid to revive him. Tragically, despite their efforts, Wyatt was declared deceased upon his arrival at the hospital.
This heart-wrenching incident occurred following a battle with Covid-19 that had left Wyatt grappling with severe heart complications. The wrestler had been advised by medical professionals to carry a heart defibrillator due to his precarious health condition. However, at the time of his passing, the life-saving device was not in his possession but was later discovered inside his vehicle.
In the days leading up to his untimely death, Wyatt had already been hospitalized for heart-related concerns, accentuating the gravity of his health struggles. His doctors had recently recommended that he continue wearing an external heart defibrillator, underlining the severity of his condition.
