Fans are in floods of tears over 'heartbreaking' new documentary about beloved ‘larger than life’ wrestler

Fans are in tears over the new documentary about the late WWE star Windham Rotunda, also known as Bray Wyatt

Viewers have been left super emotional over a 'heartbreaking' new documentary focused on late WWE star Bray Wyatt.

The wrestling star - real name Windham Lawrence Rotunda - died at just 36 years old of a heart attack in his sleep.

Rotunda passed away in August 2023, with his cause of death being given as 'heart issues' that was exacerbated by Covid-19.

The documentary, narrated by fellow WWE star The Undertaker, is called Bray Wyatt: Becoming Immortal.

You can watch the trailer here:

The documentary speaks to Windham’s brother Taylor, who also performed in the WWE under the ring name Bo Dallas.

It also features some of the biggest names in wrestling, including John Cena and Hulk Hogan.

As well as this, we also hear from CCO of WWE Paul Levesque, who publicly broke the news of Windham’s death following a call from the Rotunda family.

“It still feels surreal. I still feel like I haven’t seen him for a while, you know. Because he was so larger than life as a person and so big personality wise." he said.

“Everything was so good, and for someone that young it just… it’s just crazy.”

The day after his death, WWE ran a Smackdown show and Levesque is shown speaking to the wrestlers in rehearsals.

He says: “We lost Bray. Life is short. If this doesn’t tell you anything else, it should… 36 years old. Cherish it, cherish each other.”

Levesque, who wrestled under the name Triple H prior to his retirement, also announced the news in 2023 on X, writing: “Just received a call from WWE Hall of Famer Mike Rotunda who informed us of the tragic news that our WWE family member for life Windham Rotunda - also known as Bray Wyatt - unexpectedly passed earlier today.

"Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time.”

And the new documentary has left plenty of viewers in tears.


Posting on X, a fan posted about how emotional the documentary made them feel, saying: “This doc is 2 hours long and I’m crying within the first 15 minutes.”

And commenters on subreddit r/SquaredCircle, a wrestling community, were in unanimous agreement.

One person said: “Just finished watching it. It's a very well-made documentary, but you WILL end up crying by the time it's done. Still can't believe Bray is gone... RIP Windham Rotunda.”

While a second said: "So heartbreaking! As someone that experienced great loss like that Bo put it into words perfectly with his eulogy! Man living through the worst day of your life is something so difficult!"

Another commented: “I did not expect them to go so in depth on the day he passed. That f*****g broke me.”

The documentary has been praised across the board, with it sitting at a 9.3 on IMDb.

“He was truly one of one and it's incredible to see just how great of a man he truly was.

“All I can say is thank you Windham and his entire family.

“Thank you to everyone who willingly sat down to give us this great insight into his life and a bit of closure.”
