WWE superstar Bray Wyatt has tragically died at the age of 36.

His death was revealed by wrestling legend Triple H, who posted about the devastating news on social media.

He said: "Just received a call from WWE Hall of Famer Mike Rotunda who informed us of the tragic news that our WWE family member for life Windham Rotunda - also known as Bray Wyatt - unexpectedly passed earlier today.

"Our thoughts are with his family and we ask that everyone respect their privacy at this time."

Bray was a one-time WWE Champion and held the WWE Universal Championship twice.

The former WWE champion had been out of action since late February due to illness.

Wrestling News reported that the 36-year-old was edging closer to being cleared for a return to wrestling and that plans were being made for his return to the ring.

Fans have been shocked and crushed by the news.

One wrote on social media: "One of the greatest minds in wrestling history, the fiend character was truly awe inspiring, the cult leader of the Wyatt family was so captivating, thank you for everything you gave to the business Bray."

Another added: "We live in a cruel world; We should value it more - and value our time more; we're but a speck on a multi billion year planet, cherish every second."

A third said: "One of the greatest minds pro wrestling has ever had. RIP Bray X."

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was devastated that a wrestling star was taken from this earth so soon.

"Im heartbroken over the news of Bray Wyatt’s passing," he said.

"Always had tremendous respect and love for him and the Rotunda family. Loved his presence, promos, in ring work and connection with @wwe universe.

"Very unique, cool and rare character, which is hard to create in our crazy world of pro wrestling. Still processing losing the goat, Terry Funk yesterday and now Bray today.

"My love, light, strength & mana to the Rotunda family and Funk family during this tough, heartbreaking time."
