New details emerged on Monday about the sudden death of WWE superstar Bray Wyatt.
Wyatt, whose real name was Windham Rotunda, died last Thursday from a heart attack at the age of 36.
Wyatt had been taking a nap at the time, according to law enforcement records obtained by TMZ, and his fiancee, former WWE ring announcer JoJo Offerman, became worried when she heard his alarm going off an hour later without stopping.
Wyatt was found in his bed not breathing and “turning blue,” according to the report.
Offerman’s mother attempted CPR while Offerman called 911.
Wyatt was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The tragic incident occurred months after Wyatt had COVID-19 and developed heart complications from it.
Doctors had recommended to Wyatt that he keep a heart defibrillator with him.
While it’s unclear if it would have saved Wyatt’s life, the defibrillator was not on him when he died and it was later found inside his vehicle in the driveway, according to TMZ.
