Bob Windham, known in the wrestling world as Blackjack Mulligan, revealed today that his son, Barry Windham, is in an Intensive Care Unit in a Florida hospital.

"I have a son near death," he posted on his Facebook page, asking for prayers. Other posts say that the 51-year-old Windham suffered a stroke or a heart attack.

Barry Windham broke into the wrestling business in 1979 and by the mid-'80s was a national star, first in the WWF as tag team champion with Mike Rotundo, and then in the NWA, where he was a constant challenger for Ric Flair's NWA World title, until aligning with Flair's Four Horsemen in April 1988.

In February 1993, he became NWA World champion, beating The Great Muta at Superbrawl III.

On a national level, he was last seen in the WWF in 1996 alongside Bradshaw as the New Blackjacks, and in WCW in 1999.

He has worked for World Wrestling Entertainment as a backstage agent.
