This is the second former WWE employee to suffer a health problem in as many days. (Damn, Barry Windham looks more and more like his dad every time I see him).

This is another bit of sad news for the wrestling world. Barry Windham is a beloved legend in the business.

Growing up in the 80s and 90s, I remember Windham well. My first memories of Windham were him teaming with Dustin Rhodes and Brian Pillman at different times in WCW.

His last stint with WWE was as the partner of Justin “Hawk” Bradshaw (later JBL) in a team called The New Blackjacks.

Windham soon left the WWE for one more run with WCW before going into semi-retirement.

Windham is one of those wrestlers who is always credited as one of the best in the ring, but never held the world title in WCW or WWE.

He is a one-time NWA world champion.

It’s really a sad thing to hear that a man who is only 59 may be fighting for his life.

My own father had a heart attack less than a month ago, so I understand the hardships the family is going through.

Of course I want Windham to make a speedy recovery.

Anyway, here’s to a speedy recovery to a wrestler of which I have plenty of fond memories and a shared weight fluctuation problem. Time to drown my sorrows in a bucket of Blue Bunny moose tracks. -Eric

I would like to send my well wishes to Barry Windham and his family.

I hope your road to recovery is easy and you live a long and healthy life.
