(Republicaninformer.com)- WWE Hall of Famer Barry Windham was rushed to the hospital last Friday after suffering a massive heart attack at the Atlanta airport.
According to Windham’s niece, Mika Rotunda, the sister of pro wrestlers Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas, Windham underwent emergency surgery and was moved to the ICU.
A GoFundMe account was established for Windham on Monday in the hopes of raising $200,000 for his medical expenses.
On the GoFundMe page, Rotunda said her uncle’s condition is “uncertain.”
The 62-year-old Windham’s wrestling career spanned from 1979 until 2010. He worked with NWA’s Championship Wrestling, AWA, and Jim Crockett Promotions, and had multiple stints with the WWF (later the WWE) and WCW.
In the mid to late 1980s, Windham reached wrestling superstardom as a member of Ric Flair’s Four Horsemen stable. He won a total of seven tag-team championships with NWA, WCW, and WWF wrestling with his brother Mike Rotunda. He also won several individual belts, including the TV title and the US championship.
Windham retired from wrestling in 2010. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012 as part of the Four Horsemen.
According to his niece Mika Rotunda, Windham suffered from several “taxing injuries” after his years in wrestling and underwent multiple surgeries that led to “health complications.” Since he retired from wrestling, Windham’s medical history has limited his ability to work, leaving him without health insurance.
The GoFundMe account hopes to raise money to cover the costs of his outstanding medical bills as well as his current hospitalization.
