How does WWE plan to uphold Bray Wyatt’s legacy?

On the latest episode of Wrestling Talk with Mayor McCall, Wyatt’s father and WWE veteran, Mike Rotunda was present. He had earned his praises during the WWF era when he went by the name of Irwin R. Schyster. While talking with the hosts of the show, he revealed the details of how WWE has been helping Wyatt’s fiance and their kids after his passing. He said, ” I have to give WWE credit. They’ve done awesome, helping our family out with a lot of different stuff. They put Windham (Bray Wyatt) on a Legends contract,” and said that all the proceedings go to Wyatt’s fiance JoJo Offerman and their four kids.

The Legends contract comprises a deal wherein WWE offers payment to stars who have made a name for themselves during their career. This allows WWE to use their likeliness and to sell their merch while paying an upfront fee to the stars. Some contracts offer more benefits than others and vary from star to star.

Sporadically, WWE even calls upon these stars to make special cameos on weekly shows or PLEs, while others are not depending on their contract. Details of how long Wyatt’s contract is valid are scarce. However, considering the general trend it might be somewhere between 5 years to 20 years. While talking about these details, Mike Rotunda shared how the family is dealing with the loss.

He brought up how Wyatt, being the first child of Rotunda, got the opportunity to travel at just 6 months. Rotunda said, “It’s been really hard. We miss him every day. Growing up in the business, you always book stuff during the week because you’re going to be wrestling on the weekends and TV.” He then added, “We would bring him on the road at six months old.” He later added that it is still hard for him “to wake up from the nightmare.”

One take at a time

For me pro wrestling has two things that I like the most, storytelling and fighting. Let?s just say movies are failing to keep me entertained in those departments. I grew up watching WWF and not WWE and any hardcore fan will agree that the two are not the same, but I love both iterations.
