Dwayne Johnson's ‘very distinctive, cool and rare’ passing breaks my heart Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt, a former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star, has received praise from Dwayne Johnson, who called him a "very unique, cool, and rare character."

At the age of 36, Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, passed away "unexpectedly" on Thursday.

The wrestler's cause of death was not disclosed in a statement on the WWE website, which offered "condolences to Rotunda's family, friends and fans."

The family of Wyatt, who was the son of Mike and Stephanie Rotunda, included a number of wrestlers.

Barry and Kendall Windham, two of his uncles, and "Blackjack Mulligan" Robert Deroy Windham, his paternal grandfather, were all professional wrestlers for the WWE.

I'm heartbroken over the news of Bray Wyatt's passing, wrote Hollywood actor Johnson on Twitter, also known as "The Rock" while competing in professional wrestling.

"Have always loved and admired him and the Rotunda family. I enjoyed his presence, promotions, in-ring performance, and connection to the @wwe universe.

Very rare, cool, and distinctive character that is challenging to develop in this wild pro wrestling industry."I'm still digesting losing the goat; yesterday it was Terry Funk, and now it's Bray.

The two-time Women's Champion is eager to return to WWE after a seventeen-year absence to battle Charlotte Flair.
