Big E details Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt) looking out for him in WWE developmental

Originally published at Big E details Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt) looking out for him in WWE developmental

Big E described Rotunda as the ‘welcoming committee’ in developmental. 

Joining Peter Rosenberg to record an episode of The Ringer Wrestling Show was Big E. As their chat rolled on, the topic of conversation shifted over to Big E’s friendships with the late Jon Huber (Brodie Lee) and Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt)

Specifically on Rotunda, Big E recounted the three-time WWE Champion looking out for him when they were in developmental. 

We (Windham Rotunda & myself) definitely met in ‘09 when I got signed. He was already signed in FCW and you know, he was like one of those first guys that looked out for me and he would kind of tell me — because there’s so many unwritten rules in wrestling. In football, we didn’t go around shaking everyone’s hand but that was kind of the expectation in wrestling is you come in every single day, you shake everyone’s hand. Wrestling just has all these unwritten rules I wasn’t familiar with and Windham did such a great job doing that. He would have house parties and always would encourage me to come out. He and his brother were named Bo and Duke Rotundo at the time. So they would have the ‘Bo & Duke Bash’ at their house. They’d do a Halloween party every year. So yeah, he was one of the first guys that I met when I got to FCW and he was like the welcoming committee. That was him and he was just one of those guys who’s always just had this larger than life charisma about him.

A new documentary centered around the life of Windham Rotunda is out on Peacock. 

As a part of WrestleMania week, Big E is going to be representing the company at events and he’ll be part of pre-show panels with the likes of CM Punk, Pat McAfee and Michael Cole.
