It's been just over a month since the death of WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt, but that hasn't stopped his fellow Superstars from honoring him in the most heartfelt ways.

The wrestling world was shocked when Windham Rotunda (the man behind the legendary character known to the WWE Universe as Bray Wyatt) unexpectedly passed away in late August 2023. A larger-than-life Superstar that transcended the professional wrestling industry in countless ways, Bray Wyatt's untimely death is still sending shockwaves through the WWE locker room. Fortunately, some WWE Superstars are honoring him in a very fitting way.

How is Corey Graves Honoring the Memory of Bray Wyatt?

Corey Graves is the latest WWE Superstar to receive fresh ink in honor of Bray Wyatt. As revealed on social media by Graves' personal tattoo artist, the longtime mainstay in the WWE announcer booth got a new tattoo in memory of Wyatt. The multicolored piece depicts The Fiend alter ego holding the iconic Wyatt family lantern.

"It was a real honor today to tattoo this Bray Wyatt tribute piece on my long time homie Corey Graves," the artist captioned a post on Instagram. "Thanks as always for your trust and friendship all these years."

Corey Graves is no stranger to tattoos – the host of WWE's After the Bell YouTube show reportedly has at least 28 pieces of ink proudly displayed on his body. We're willing to bet that none is more special than his latest one. It's clear to the WWE Universe that Bray Wyatt will live on forever in the hearts, minds, and skin of his friends, family, and fans. But Corey Graves isn't the only WWE Superstar to get Bray Wyatt-related tattoos in recent weeks.

What Other WWE Superstars Have Gotten Bray Wyatt Tattoos?

A few days after Bray Wyatt's death, a handful of WWE Superstars banded together to receive firefly tattoos in honor of one of the most creative minds in the wrestling world. Braun Strowman, Karrion Kross, and Shotzi all took part in this amazing tribute:

All three Superstars are known for their extensive tattoos covering their bodies, and we're happy to see they made room for a much-deserved Bray tribute. The firefly served as the unofficial logo for Windham Rotunda throughout his career and is a reference to the WWE Universe turning on their cell phone camera flashes during his entrances to the ring. Moments like these reinforce the fact that the WWE locker room is like family, making the impact of someone like Bray Wyatt resonate even more substantial.

When are Corey Graves and Carmella Expecting Their First Child?


Although Corey is in the news for his heartfelt gesture today, he has arguably even bigger things to focus on in the near future: He's going to be a father soon! Corey Graves and his real-life wife, Carmella, don't have to wait much longer to welcome their son into the world – their firstborn is slated to arrive in November 2023! (We hope his dad's new Bray Wyatt tattoo doesn't scare him too much.)

It's been a tumultuous and rocky road for the couple as they've experienced their fair share of heartache on the road to becoming first-time parents. But by all accounts, the couple is in the home stretch, and both Carmella and the baby are happy and healthy! The end of the year will bring joyful baby news for not only Corey and Carmella but Alexa Bliss as well – she and her husband, Ryan Cabrera, are also expecting their first child, due in December. The end of 2023 promises to make many Superstars' dreams come true – and that's not even considering what can happen inside the ring!
