The Wyatt family has been one of the most loved and dominant groups in WWE. Originally, it consisted of three members: the leader, Bray Wyatt, and his two followers, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Later, Braun Strowman was also introduced as the powerhouse of the group.
Unfortunately, the leader of ‘The Wyatt Family’ has left the world. Windham Rotunda, also known as Bray Wyatt in the ring, is not with us anymore. Previously, 36-year-old Superstar and the leader of the group, Bray Wyatt, passed away on August 24, 2023. He had prolonged health issues and died reportedly due to a heart attack.

The powerhouse of ‘The Wyatt Family’, Braun Strowman, has been missing from the company for a long time now and is expected to return soon. In his recent interview with News 18 Sports, he said that he will be returning soon to WWE, not just for himself but for his dear friend.
Strowman said, “I’m a godfather to [Bray’s] son, so I know that I have this big responsibility. But I’m honored at the fact that I was chosen by him to lead if something were to happen to him. So it’s a truly humbling honor knowing that I have that weight put on my back and I carry it proudly. So especially with my return to WWE, like I have, I’m not only coming back for me, I’m coming back for him”.
Braun Strowman revealed about him being the godfather of Bray Wyatt’s son and how he had to take up the big responsibility. ‘The Monster Among Men’ felt honored as he was chosen by Bray for this big responsibility. However, it is still to be seen when he will make his return to the Stamford-based promotion.
