Former WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt has tragically passed away in his sleep, as reported by TMZ.
The report indicates that Wyatt, whose real name is Windham Rotunda, had experienced a “series of heart complications” in the months leading up to his passing. Alarmingly, a doctor-recommended heart defibrillator was not present with him at the time his body was discovered.
According to information obtained from law enforcement records by TMZ, Wyatt informed his fiancée, JoJo Offerman, on Thursday that he was going to take a nap. Approximately an hour later, an incessant alarm began sounding, causing concern for JoJo. She found him unresponsive in bed, with the alarm serving as the trigger for her discovery. Notably, Wyatt had turned blue by the time she located him.

JoJo’s mother immediately dialed 911, and despite her attempt at CPR, Wyatt was pronounced deceased upon arrival at the hospital. As previously highlighted by Sean Ross Sapp, Wyatt had contracted COVID earlier in the year, which led to subsequent heart complications. TMZ also noted that he had a “weakened lower part of his heart.” Just a week prior to his passing, Wyatt had been hospitalized, and a follow-up appointment had been scheduled for the same day he passed away.
The presence of the defibrillator and its potential impact on saving his life remain uncertain. Law enforcement revealed that the device was found in his car, parked in the driveway.
