Bray Wyatt‘s dad, Mike Rotunda, is opening up on his constant grief following the late WWE Superstar’s tragic death … saying life without his son has been nothing short of a “nightmare.”
Rotunda — who was famous in his own right as a wrestler for decades, most notably as Irwin R. Schuster — joined the “Wrasslin Talk with Mayor McCall” podcast to discuss Wyatt (real name Windham Rotunda) … and, understandably, he’s still struggling to come to terms with the loss.
“It’s been really hard,” Rotunda said. “We miss him every day.”
“[My kids] would come with me and stay on the road, wherever I was wrestling … and it’s so hard to wake up out of this nightmare and he’s still not there.”
Rotunda explained Windham was supposed to get married to his partner, Jojo, recently … making it an especially challenging time for his family.
Rotunda praised WWE for helping his family by giving Windham a Legends contract among other gestures … which will allow his four children to receive financial help from merchandise sales.
“He was a jolly fellow,” Rotunda continued. “He loved to laugh, he was loud, always laughing and he lit up a room. He lit up the wrestling business. People come up to me and have a story with Windham and say, ‘He took the time to sit there and bulls*** with me for 10 or 15 minutes when he’s supposed to be signing autographs.’ So many people come up and support him by wearing Windham’s stuff, and they have a story about him. He was that kind of person.”
As we previously reported, Windham — who experienced heart complications leading up to his death — passed away while taking a nap at his home in August.
He was just 36 years old.
