The wrestling world is having a horrific week.
It was only two days ago that we learned that legend Terry Funk had passed away.
Today we learned that a returning star, Bray Wyatt, had died. He was only 36 years old, reported CBS News.
Another One Gone
Wyatt started in the WWE about a dozen years ago.
Wyatt's transformation into "The Fiend" made him one of the most popular figures in the company, especially during the pandemic.
He was regularly matched up against some of the biggest names in the WWE, such as Randy Orton and John Cena.
However, in July 2021, he was let go, a move that shattered Wyatt.
Over the last several months, the WWE has been teasing Wyatt's return with bizarre hints during broadcasts. It was leaked that Wyatt would be returning in September.
On his return to the WWE, Wyatt stated, "I am incredibly grateful. I'm really, really nervous to be here. I never thought this would happen," Wyatt said. "This right here, this is just me OK? This is a version of me I never got to introduce to you guys before. This is just me being me — genuine me — for the first time."
He continued, "I lost my career. I lost my self-confidence. I lost two people who were very, very close to me. I lost my way.
"And I got to a point where I thought that everything that I've ever done here or otherwise, it was all meaningless. Nothing I've ever did has ever mattered to anyone. And I was wrong," reported Fox News.
Unlike Funk who died in his late seventies and spent decades creating a legend, Wyatt passed away unexpectedly at only 36 years old just before embarking on the second half of his journey in the WWE.
He is survived by his fiancée, a son, and two daughters (from his ex-wife).
Rest in peace, sir.
