HHH and WWE Helping with Barry Windham’s Recovery, More on His Recent Health Scare

– WWE Hall of Famer Blackjack Mulligan told Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier that it was actually his wife that found their son Barry Windham at the family’s ranch in Florida last month. He said:

“He just fell. He passed out. He was totally out of it when we found him. He couldn’t hear me. I asked him how many fingers I had, and he said he didn’t know. He couldn’t raise his right hand and couldn’t move his right fingers.”

“He obviously fell, but we don’t know why. It could have been all day before we found him. By then the organs were failing, and he didn’t even recognize us.”

Mulligan also says that Windham’s left knee was “the size of a cantaloupe” from the fall and that his right foot had been turned in a 45-degree angle and spun inside his femur. Windham’s left knee was dislocated, his right wrist was broken from the fall and he suffered elbow injuries as well as a big knot on the back of his head.

There was fear that Windham had suffered a chipped or broken neck that was affecting the nerves in his arm and leg but Windham did recover feeling in his fingers and toes. Windham did have a heart attack and the heart procedure went well. Doctors said there was minimal damage and that Windham had a big, strong heart.

Mulligan says that his son is facing long-term rehab and possibly knee/leg surgery. He said, “It’s going to be a long deal. It was a very close call … we almost lost him.”

Mulligan revealed that WWE is paying for Windham’s rehab treatments as Triple H, Windham’s longtime friend, approved all of the funding. Mulligan said, “A big, black Cadillac limo pulled up to the hospital. A chauffeur got out, and two doctors put him (Windham) in the back of an ambulance and whisked him off. He’s at a place where they’re taking care of all of his problems. He’s being ministered to physically and spiritually.”

    Trips, like most of us is human. He has his strong points and his flaws. Like most humans (blessed be) his strong points outweigh his flaws. This is class. Doesn’t mean he won’t make his share of mistakes, but it does show he’s basically one of the good guys.

    HHH don’t care what his haters have to say about him. Never have an never will. To me HHH has more class then any of his haters will every know.

  • I hope Barry continues to recover and I hope it’s a speedy recovery. As for Triple H, what he did is basically the definition of class. He has shown just how magnanimous he can be and the fact that he’s not on TV trying to show everyone just what a good guy he is gives him tons of credit.

    I tell you what I give HHH a lot of stick at times (justifiably so IMO) but he deserves credit for this one. Living in Australia I don’t know the ins & outs but from what I can gather his medical bills are going to be quite astronomical so for HHH to foot the bill is quite the decent thing to do & shows a different side to the man most of us probably didn’t know..


    Get well soon Barry
