On a recent edition of the “SportsKeeda Wrestling” podcast, Teddy Long recalled his earliest interactions with Bray Wyatt (Windham Rotunda) who tragically passed away on August 24.

Long spent time in Florida alongside Wyatt’s father, Mike Rotunda, and met Bray as a child. Teddy said,


“I’d known him since he was a baby. Back in the day, me and Mike Rotunda [Windham’s father] had the chance to ride together. And when we would always go to Florida, Bray would come too. Mike would bring him to the arena because they lived in Florida. And when he came to the arena, they had a Rottweiler dog — a big Rottweiler. Mike would sit Bray right down in his chair, and he would sit that dog right beside Bray, and you couldn’t go nowhere near Bray. That dog didn’t let you nowhere near him, not at all. So I remember Bray from a baby.”
