Westside Gunn Pays Tribute To Late Wrestler Bray Wyatt
The wrestling world received shocking and saddening news this week when it was revealed that WWE star Bray Wyatt passed away unexpectedly. Moreover, tributes rolled in from all corners of pop culture, from die-hards, casuals, and people unbeknownst to his status alike. One of the most prominent to emerge from the hip-hop realm was Westside Gunn’s, who posted a picture of him wearing The Fiend’s iconic mask. Alongside Tyler, The Creator and Conway The Machine, the picture shows how much of a fan of the scene and of Wyatt in particular the Buffalo MC is. In the post’s caption, Flygod left a tender message for the fallen wrestler.
“THANK YOU @thewindhamrotunda for EVERYTHING one of my FAVORITES of ALL TIME,” Westside Gunn wrote on the social media platform. “#THEFIEND I literally wore the Mask making some of PRAY FOR PARIS, I sat front row at every major match you had, I was waiting for the day to be able to see your ART again #RIPBRAYWYATT #CULTURE #WWE #4THROPE #LEGEND.” It’s a sad week for fans, but one that inspired a lot of celebration around Wyatt’s life and legacy.
