Seth Rollins issues statement regarding the death of Windham Rotunda aka Bray Wyatt

As previously noted, Windham Rotunda aka Bray Wyatt has passed away at the age of 36. Prior to Smackdown, Seth Rollins published a video and stated the following about Wyatt…

“Truth is, I still don’t really know what to say. Windham was a unique cat. Simple, yet deeply complex individual. And I loved him. I loved him, I loved working with him, but mostly I just loved being around him. He was always joyful. Just these eyes that drew you in and a smile and a laugh and a presence that just made you happy and we’re all going to miss that.

I’ve been thinking mostly about his family, and I wanted to go. I don’t know if wanted was the right word. I thought about going to Smackdown tonight but that would entail leaving my family a day early. I just keep going back to the conversation I had with Wyndham on the phone when Brodie [Lee] passed a few years ago. And, you know, I just had called him to check on him to see how he was doing. And we talked and he was okay and I was okay and neither of us were really okay. We ended the conversation with I love yous and goodbyes. And I remember this very specifically. He said, you just go hug on that baby girl, talking about my daughter. And so I just feel like that’s what I should be doing. So Windham, I love you, man. I will miss you. We will all miss you. And I’ll see you down the road, hot boy. Bye.”
