• Barry Windham Suffers A Heart Attack

WWE Hall of Famer Barry Windham (age 62) suffered a heart attack this past Friday and is currently in ICU (intensive care unit).

This was Barry’s second heart attack after a cardiac arrest in 2011, where he needed an emergency procedure as well.

His niece Mika Rotunda (daughter of ‘I.R.S.’ Mike Rotunda and sister of Bray Wyatt & Bo Dallas) set up a fundraiser for the legendary 4 Horsemen member, that includes the following description:

“With deep sadness I regret to inform that my uncle, WWE Hall of Famer, Barry Windham suffered a massive heart attack Friday evening. While traveling through the Atlanta airport, his darkest fear became a horrific reality as he went into cardiac arrest.

He is currently in the ICU and has undergone an emergency procedure to save his life. As a family, we are impatiently waiting to hear that he will be okay. But as of now, the future is uncertain.”

Barry Windham is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Blackjack Mulligan, the brother of Kendall Windham, the brother-in-law of WWF Legend Irwin R. Schyster (Mike Rotunda).

Windham had his greatest accomplishments while wrestling for Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) and later for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.

While wrestling for the World Wrestling Federation (1989, 1996-1998), Barry used several different gimmicks, such as The Widowmaker, The Stalker and Blackjack Windham.

In 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of The Four Horsemen.

• Old School WrestleMania Celebrity Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 90th birthday of Old School WrestleMania Celebrity Little Richard (Real name: Richard Penniman).

Old School Rock and roll Fans certainly remember his famous songs, like “Long Tall Sally”, “Lucille”, “Keep A Knockin’ and “Tutti Frutti”, that made Little Richard a huge Legend in the music business.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer ended up singing “America the Beautiful” at the beginning of the WWF WrestleMania X pay-per-view on March 20, 1994, which is what most Old School 90s Wrestling fans remember about him.
