According to reports, Wyatt’s heart issues were made worse with COVID, and while he was making good progress towards a return, he suffered a heart attack earlier today and passed away. WWE has paid tribute to Wyatt on social media, but if you view Bray Wyatt merchandise on the WWE Shop, WWE has posted a note that they will donate all net proceeds to support Jojo Offerman and Bray’s Children.

That includes Big E, who shared a tribute on Twitter. Big E wrote, “Man…the first dude that took me under his wing when I got signed in 2009. We spent so much of our adult lives together.
