In a recent interview with Bill Apter as part of Sportskeeda’s WrestleBinge podcast, Mike Rotunda discussed being inducted into the 2024 WWE Hall of Fame, and addressed the reports regarding his son, the late Bray Wyatt, not being inducted this year.

“I called Triple H when Windham passed away, because I didn’t want all kinds of internet crap going out about him and stuff, so Triple H took the reigns and, you know, let everyone know that Windham had unexpectedly passed. Then later, Triple H called and said that we would like to do a documentary so his kids know him when they get older.

WWE has been awesome, they just have been very helpful throughout the process with Windham passing, and very generous, and I can’t say enough about that. Along with The Rock, he was sending food here every other day, and people reaching out, The Undertaker and so many people.

With Windham passing, I thought they were going to immediately put Windham into the Hall of Fame, which he will be at some point, but I think that WWE re-assessed stuff and thought it was too soon to go there with our family and the reactions and the stress on us.

We got a call from WWE and said Hunter wants to do a Zoom call, we were thinking they were going to tell us what was going to happen at WrestleMania, and Hunter said, you guys are going to get inducted, you and Barry, you were a part of the first-ever WrestleMania, it’s very flattering obviously, and actually less stressful on us, because of all the stuff that we’ve had to go through with Windham passing, just the mental capacity of it. Obviously, it’s a great honor, because you are getting rewarded for what you spent 40 years doing.”
