Among those who have had the time and opportunity to work with Bray Wyatt in WWE, there is also someone who has been the living symbol of the Stamford company for almost twenty years, accumulating titles and series victories. John Cena, who with the extraordinary wrestler who tragically passed away on August 24 at the age of only 36 had divided the ring twice at WrestleMania.
He had done it in the thirtieth edition of the Grandaddy of Them All, beating him, and he had done it above all in the unrepeatable Firefly FunHouse Match of the 36th edition organized in 2020. And also in memory of these events, which made WWE history, he decided to celebrate his colleague.
To do so, John Cena decided to use his official account on X/Twitter, given that on Instagram he is known to almost always only post images without comment.
John Cena shocked by Bray Wyatt's death: "I'm devastated"
And often with satirical intent.
In his last farewell to Bray Wyatt, however, like others before him, the legendary Bostonian decided to address the athlete by his real name: Windham Rotunda. John Cena compliments Bray Wyatt and their most unforgettable match John explained: "I am devastated to hear of the passing of Windham Rotunda.
My heart goes out to the entire Rotunda family. Windham brought out the best in me in so many ways. I will forever be grateful for the moments we shared. A sad day for all who reached out across the world. Rest in peace." John Cena, who in 2020 agreed to be pilloried completely in the Firefly FunHouse match of WrestleMania 36, 100% embraced the narration of what Bray Wyatt had decided to tell in that one-of-a-kind match of him.
We recall that, after his defeat, he literally disappeared in the ring and also on his social networks he remained perfectly faithful to the keyfabe. Over the next few days, he wrote a series of sibylline posts about X, the most famous of which read: "All things come to an end.
When it's time to leave, give them a chance to figure it out."
Devastated by the news of the passing of Windham Rotunda. My heart goes out to the entire Rotunda family. Windham brought the best out of me in so many ways. I’m forever grateful for the moments we shared.
A sad day for all those he reached around the world. RIP. — John Cena (@JohnCena) August 25, 2023
