Update on Barry Windham

Former NWA champion Barry Windham is currently in intensive care in Florida after what isnow believed to have been a heart attack.  His father, Bob  (Blackjack Mulligan) descrbed the condition of the 50-year-old Windham as "near death," and asked for people to pray for him.

Windham was one of the greatest in-ring talents in the history of the industry, particularly in the 80s while working for Jim Crockett Promotions when he was a member of the Four Horseman as a heel, and earlier as a top babyface world title contender.

He is the brother-in-law of current WWE agent Mike Rotunda and the uncle of two of WWE's wrestlers in FCW, Husky Harris (Windham Rotunda) and Bo Rotunda (Taylor Rotunda).

Windham was reportedly found at his ranch, collapsed, by Mike Rotunda.
