Last night, WWE held a tribute show for the beloved superstar Bray Wyatt and the WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk. SmackDown opened with a traditional 10-bell salute for Wyatt and Funk. A lot of stars from RAW and SmackDown were present on the stage including Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman.
Rowan and Strowman have been very close to the late great Bray Wyatt. During the pandemic era, Wyatt paired with Alexa Bliss. The duo has a great history. However, Bliss was unable to attend last night’s SmackDown.
On Instagram, Alexa Bliss posted a video to honor Bray Wyatt before the SmackDown broadcast. Bliss explained that she was unable to attend the show due to last-minute flight options.
“Before tonight’s episode of SmackDown, I just wanted to come on here and say a few words. I was planning on attending tonight’s SmackDown, but unfortunately with the last-minute flight options, it wasn’t really possible to get me there in time before the show ended. So I wanted to come on here and just talk about Windham a little bit and what tonight means…
Windham is an incredible person who we have all loved for years, and he is just so friendly and lights up a room, and is so creative. He’s a creative genius who brought us all the amazing gift of Bray Wyatt for the last so many years. And I think the character Bray Wyatt that Windham has given us has been incredible and has been so fascinating to see and has brought us all so much joy to watch.
Working with Windham was just so… it was magic. It was magic because being able to watch him in his creative element and be able to work with him really expanded my creativity and being able to just watch him work, and work beside him, was just truly, truly an honor, and I still say to this day was the most fun I’ve ever had in my entire career in WWE…
We will continue to celebrate your life, your legacy, and the amazing human you are, and we will continue to light up the sky with fireflies, and we all love you Windham.”
