Windham hospitalized, details sketchy



Barry Windham, one of pro wrestling's biggest stars of the 80s, was hospitalized with what most sources believe to have been a heart attack.

Rumors circulated last night that Windham, 50, had suffered a stroke, and today that he had suffered a heart attack, but family members have told people within wrestling he is currently hospitalized with what is believed to have been a heart attack.

Windham was generally considered one of the five best in-ring performers in the United States for much of the mid-to-late 80s, including some of the best matches of that decade against Ric Flair.  He was tremendously agile for a 6-6 wrestler who ranged from 230 to probably 260 pounds during his peak years, and was a natural worker, in the sense he was very good while still a teenager.  Knee injuries plagued him later in his career.
