WCW legend Barry Windham is certainly one of the greatest stars of the promotion and he has been part of several iconic matches during his separate stints with WWE and WCW. Unfortunately, the WWE Hall of Famer is currently fighting for his life after suffering a major heart attack.
Barry Windham is fighting for his life
The 62-year-old suffered a heart attack this past Friday while traveling through the Atlanta airport. This news was shared by Windham’s niece, Mika Rotunda (the sister of Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas). Mika has since set up a fundraiser to help Windham’s family pay for medical expenses.
“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.”
Windham’s family is planning to raise $200,000 to cover up the medical expenses. If one is willing to help the family in this hardship, here’s the link for the GoFundMe for Barry Windham.
This is the second time Barry Windham has suffered a heart attack. The former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion went into cardiac arrest in 2011, and doctors had to perform an emergency procedure on him at the time as well.
