In a touching display of solidarity and remembrance, several WWE stars have chosen to honor the late Bray Wyatt, also known as Windham Rotunda, through permanent tattoos of his iconic “Firefly” logo. This heartfelt gesture comes in the wake of Wyatt’s unexpected passing at the age of 36, attributed to a reported heart attack following COVID-19 complications.

Among those who have embraced this tribute are wrestlers Braun Strowman, Karrion Kross, and Shotz, along with Rob Fee, WWE’s head of long-term creative. Their decision to imprint Wyatt’s “Firefly” logo on their skin underscores the profound impact he had on their lives and the wrestling community as a whole.

Strowman, a former member of Wyatt’s renowned Wyatt Family stable, shared a deep connection with the star. Fee, who worked closely with Wyatt during the buildup to his WWE return last year, also chose to honor his legacy in this poignant manner.
