The passing of WWE star Bray Wyatt has left many within the industry with heavy hearts. Just 36 years old, Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, died last month after suffering a heart attack and his funeral was held last week.
AEW president Tony Khan granted permission to those from his company who wished to participate in the service, and Matt Hardy, who was close to Wyatt since his time working in WWE, flew to Tampa with his wife Reby for Wyatt’s funeral. . Hardy reflected on the difficult experience in “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy.”
“It was hard, it was sad, it was strange, it was strange… my heart is broken for his family. “Some of them spoke up and I can’t imagine the pain they are going through,” she said. “It is very difficult to understand how someone who is 36 years old and someone you know who you assumed was very healthy dies. He leaves behind four children, two very young, which is also heartbreaking… I can’t. I can’t even imagine it.
“It was crazy to see everyone in this meeting and have everyone in one room. It is very sad that we met under those circumstances, it was very strange. But it was an important moment to let him know… to honor and celebrate his life.”
Hardy and Wyatt worked together in 2017, and their partnership as a tag team led to a brief reign with the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships before going their separate ways. Wyatt is survived by his partner, Jojo Offerman, and their four children, as well as his brothers Taylor Rotunda (formerly Bo Dallas) and Mika Rotunda, and his legendary father, Mike Rotunda.
