WWE star Bray Wyatt was not wearing his doctor-recommended heart defibrillator when he shockingly passed away last week, according to TMZ.
The three-time World Champion, whose real name was Windham Lawrence Rotunda, had been battling heart complications in the weeks prior to his death.
According to police records, Wyatt told his fiancé, WWE ring announcer JoJo, that he was going to take a nap. However, she became worried after hearing his alarm going off for about an hour without him waking.
Upon going to check on him she then discovered his body turning blue as he was laying in bed. Bray was not breathing, prompting JoJo to call 911 as her mother attempted to CPR. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Wyatt’s family members told officers he had developed heart complications that led to him having a ‘weak lower part of his heart’, after developing heart issues after catching COVID back in March of this year.

TMZ’s report states that Wyatt had been hospitalized over an issue with his heart just a week before his death and during a follow-up appointment was advised by doctors to wear an external defibrillator. The device was designed to treat people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
Although authorities stated it was uncertain whether the device would have saved Wyatt’s life, they were able to determine that he was not wearing it at the time of his death after locating it inside of a vehicle parked in the driveway of the home.
The report from TMZ seemingly falls in line with the initial reporter by Sean Ross Sapp of fightful.com.

There was a lot of positive progress towards a return and his recovery.
