The 62-year-old suffered a heart attack this past Friday while traveling through the Atlanta airport. The news was shared by Windham’s niece, Mika Rotunda (the sister of Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas). Mika recently shared a positive update on Uncle Barry’s health.
Mika also set up a fundraiser to help Windham’s family pay for medical expenses. She took to Twitter and thanked everyone who had reached out, prayed, contributed and sent their well-wishes during this struggle. Mika shared that he is stabilized and out of ICU. Barry is now talking, and he is also able to stand.
This is the second time Barry Windham has suffered a heart attack. The former NWA World Heavyweight Champion went into cardiac arrest in 2011, and doctors had to perform an emergency procedure on him at the time as well. We wish Windham the best in his recovery.
